Wondering where to take your senior pictures around the Seattle-Tacoma area? Luckily, there are so many incredible places to choose for your senior photoshoot because we are surrounded by beautiful gardens, fields, parks, forests, lakes, beaches, mountains, and urban settings!
Once you book your senior photoshoot with Mikayla Arsenian Photography, then you will fill out the Senior Survey questionnaire in the MAP Senior HUB, so you can let me know what types of locations you are interested in (ex. urban, garden, fields, etc) for your senior photoshoot. Then, we will meet over Zoom for your Fashion Consultation to plan your senior session and decide on your locations based on your interests and outfits. During your Fashion Consultation, I will show you a slideshow of location options with photos so you can decide which one(s) fit your style best!
Here’s a list of some of my favorite photoshoot spots in the greater Seattle-Tacoma area:​​​​​​​
GARDENS
We all know that Spring and Summer in Washington means a bouquet of wildflowers with lush green botanicals all over the place! Each month offers so many beautiful types of plants that are in bloom. From hydrangeas, rose gardens, rhododendrons, dahlias, sunflowers, and lavender fields - there are SO many options to choose as the backdrop for your senior photos! If you want flowers included in your senior photos I recommend scheduling your photoshoot between March-early October. To be honest, I LOVE finding hidden gardens throughout neighborhoods! Along my journey of finding perfect photoshoot locations, I also discovered popular flower fields throughout the Puget Sound.
