Location ideas for your senior photos.

Outside of what to wear, the next biggest question is where should I take my photo? Senior photos are a timeless and a once in a liftime event.

Here are some things to consider before choosing a location:


A senior photoshoot is where you get to smile, laugh and be yourself. If you are shy then you might not want to choose a very public spot.


What makes you unique? Choose a location that fits in with who you are. Do you enjoy spending time in your garden or on a couch readding? Perhaps you spend lots of time outdoors and on camping trips? Maybe you enjoy going to the city and hanging out. Your location should speak to your personality.

Senior Photoshoot Location Ideas

Below are some ideas of where you could arrange your photo session.

In the City

For a more modern feel to your photos you could get out in the city and take a a few photos next to an interesting building or in funky alley. Around the Milwaukee area there is the historic third ward and the fifth ward. If you like art, the art museum is a great location.

In Nature

If you're looking for a calm, natural setting then choose an outdoor location. Parks such as Grant and Whitnall Park make for beautiful backdrops.

In Studio

If you're looking for a more private settting where you can use props and backdrops, then a studio setting might be more for you. Studio photos will also give you the option to take more posed, structured photos.
