School yearbooks are an important way to remember your high school years. While some of us not so secretly hate our yearbook photos, other people make the good choice to have their photos taken outside of school. Choosing a photographer of your own gives you a lot of advantages including outfit changes as well as more poses and selections than the school photographer. But I love it when students go beyond the yearbook pictures and get lifestyle portraits. Senior portraits are a rare opportunity to see a person on the threshold between childhood and adulthood. They can reflect what is important to the individual. Of course, I think it is awesome when the senior portrait session includes a dog! Enjoy these great photos from Jessi Pansock Photography.
From Jessi: “When Bailey decided to bring her dog, Laci, to her senior photo session I was thrilled! The two of them are precious together. We took these pictures on some of her family’s private property in Virginia.
Her father planted a huge patch of sunflowers that we got to use. The backdrop and subjects could not have been more perfect!”
As a person who is always looking out for a pun, I appreciate Laci’s scarf has lace! Additionally, I am wishing Bailey a great senior year!

How adorable is this! I take tons of photos of my daughter with my furry kids. Our first dog, Pip, passed when she was in second grade. Fortunately, we have so many incredible pictures of them together that I treasure.

Wow! Times have really changed since I worked on the yearbook staff in High School and was a yearbook sponsor when I was a teacher. Everyone had pretty much the same pose.
I would say the majority of seniors still go for the traditional pose in the yearbook, but a lot are getting lifestyle portraits that they really reflect their personalities and interests.
These pictures are absolutely fabulous
I so love this idea! I wish when I was a senior we had this option. I would have loved to have my portraits taken with my horses or dogs. Makes it so much more special and meaningful. These pics are gorgeous!

All of a sudden, I’m thinking that even thought my daughter is in already in college and we missed the opportunity for a photo shoot like this for her senior yearbook, it would be really nice to get some photos with just her and the dogs.

How stinkin cute is that! I am getting so inspired here to take some photos like this with my dog. And senior pics have come a long way from my class of 1986 – wow I look back and wish they did this for us. Cute doggie, too!
I hope you’ll get a family portrait session with Dexter and Dar!
