Congrats, grad! It's time for indoor and outdoor graduation pictures

Proud parents across the country are getting ready for high school graduation. If you're one of them, you probably feel a mix of emotions that span from proud to sentimental. It seems like just yesterday you were holding your son or daughter in your arms and now they are getting ready to receive their diploma and start the next chapter of their life.

Take time to look back at photos of your child through the years. The adorable infant photos, silly grins in school pictures and big smiles in those candid birthday shots: Photographs capture memories throughout the years and become cherished keepsakes. Make sure you mark this special time in your child's life by scheduling graduation photos at JCPenney Portraits.

When you work with an expert photographer, you can explore a variety of poses from formal to fun. You might want a few images of your child in their cap and gown to mark the occasion. Your kid might want a few creative images that reflect their personality. There's no reason you can't have the best of both worlds at your sitting. Your JCPenney Portraits photographer is there to help ensure you get the perfect images that everyone adores.

For graduation photos you can choose from two different sitting options to get the exact photos you want: studio and outdoor.

Studio graduation photos:

When you schedule photos at your local JCPenney Portraits studio you are able to take advantage of many backgrounds and props available in-house. It's easy to get a time that matches your busy schedule. You can bring several outfits along if you desire, and even your own props. For example, if your teen is into a certain sport or extracurricular activity, bring key items to be represented in pictures. For the key graduation shot, steam or iron the grad gown and don't forget the hat and tassel!

Outdoor graduation photos:

JCPenney Portraits offers outdoor photography at approved parks across the country. If you want natural photographs enhanced by Mother Nature, this is a great option for you. Your photographer will work with the natural surroundings and suggest poses that reflect the best of your grad while embracing the beauty of natural light and the green surroundings. From an image of your grad looking dreamily into the sky to one where she smells a flower while gently smiling, outdoor photography can really highlight the wonder of your child.

Not sure if studio or outdoor graduation photography is best for you? Why not schedule both? Either way you'll receive a variety of digital images to review so you can decide which ones you'd like to purchase and print. These pictures are wonderful to frame to display at home or in the office, plus they make great gifts for grandparents and godparents. Finally, use your favorite images to create a one-of-a-kind graduation announcement to send out to friends and family around the country.
