Zebrajellyfish Photography Celebrates Diversity in Senior Portraits
Updated: Mar 4, 2022
A photography session should be a safe space for people of all genders, sexualities, and
ethnicities. After all, the entire point of having your picture taken by a professional is to
accurately represent the unique individual you, and only you, are. When booking a photoshoot
with Zebrajellyfish, please know that we are an inclusive business that respects and celebrates
every one of its clients—just like each of them deserves.
Diverse High School Portraits That Reflect Your Inner Self
Getting through high school is already hard and awkward for many. It can be especially
challenging when one feels they are not welcome because they don’t fit into a traditional gender
binary. Additionally, others are feeling disappointed and uncomfortable about their ethnicity
being underrepresented. The emotions all diverse students are feeling are valid while figuring
out how to express themselves in as safe and inclusive of an environment as possible.
Taking senior portraits that celebrate your diverse background is a good first step in a self-
development process that leads to the truest version of yourself you can be. From the very
beginning, I want our time working together to be as seamless as it can be, however you feel
most comfortable. You can change into all the outfits that scream who you are to the world, as
edgy or bold as you’d like. You aren’t constricted to categories, and you don’t need to give any
explanations. The possibilities are endless, and I am open to any ideas you may have.
My Experience with People of All Genders, Sexualities, and Ethnicities
I work with a lot of people from many varying backgrounds. I’ve worked with transgender and
gender non-binary seniors for portraits, and am very much a LGBTQIA+ inclusive person. I run
this business with the same friendly sentiments. I also have experience working with people of
ethnic or diverse histories, and I promise you this: no matter who you are or how you identify
yourself, in front of my camera is a safe space for you. You are free to express who you truly
are—no holding back. This doesn’t just apply to people in high school, either! Everyone should
always feel like they can be themselves, and should celebrate who that person is.
So, ask yourself this: "If other people’s opinions and standards didn’t exist, what is my ideal
self?" Let’s capture exactly that. Together.
