Now that the 21st night of September (shout-out to Earth, Wind, and Fire) has passed we have officially ended summer and have started Fall. For the next couple of months, things are going to change as the weather starts to cool down, school is back in session, and the leaves are about to start turning. All of this means that a new year's worth of students are becoming seniors and entering their last year of high school.

One of the biggest accomplishments in your life requires the whole nine yards right? Well, senior pictures are a big part of the celebration as on Sundays many seniors post some sneak peeks of their senior photos throughout the year. Many spend hours, days, or even weeks planning their outfits, shoes, hair, and other appearance matters before even choosing a location, but you'd be crazy to think that the location isn't as important.

In Southwest Michigan, there are tons of places to go and get all different kinds of pictures that other people probably haven't gone to. It all depends on the vibe you are going for but you can get beach photos before it's too cold, fall-like photos in parks, and of course, there are school buildings and athletic fields for those themes as well.

So, when it comes to Southwest Michigan there is no shortage of places to choose and many people should be able to get senior photos in a place that many haven't visited yet. There will be some overlap but that's expected because there are only so many ideas, unless you're anything like me and decide to go to Chicago instead.
