Spring is the season for all the fun & flirty trends! 2023 trends for spring are more romantic textures like draped fabrics, sheers, ruffles, and lace in muted tones of white, beige, and very light pastels. 3D floral embellishments are also making their way into fashion to set the mood for this season.
As far as casual looks go, opt for lighter-washed denim in relaxed cuts with a pop of a spring pastel on top in a form-fitting bodice. This will offset the mass of your jeans and not swallow your body whole.
We’re also going to see a lot of white this spring and summer as trends are leaning more toward simple styles like white shift dresses, wide-legged trousers, and oversized white linen blazers.

Session day to gallery delivery: This includes culling through your session and editing your images; depending on which collection you choose, we will have an ordering appointment or digital delivery. You’ll have digitals between 2 – 3 weeks after your senior session at the most basic image delivery. If you want grad cards, albums, and other products, you’ll need to add a few more weeks to your end goal timeline.
Grad card design to card delivery: from the moment you place your order with AKP, we work hard to get your grad cards designed, proofed, confirmed, printed and delivered to your doorstep within 2-3 weeks. Remember to send out graduation and party invitations at least four weeks in advance if you want to give people enough time to plan to come.
Senior products design to delivery: if you’d like to have an album, signing portrait, gift prints, and canvases displayed at your grad party, you’ll want to order those products at least three weeks before your grad festivities.
So, if you plan on sending out graduation and party invitations, you’ll want to book your session four weeks in advance to ensure you have plenty of time to invite your family, friends, and loved ones. For this time, you’ll need to book your session for early March. If you’re planning on only sending out grad announcements, you’ll want to book your session at least four weeks before your festivities. This means that you’ll want to book your session, at the very latest, in early-April
Are you panicking yet?!?! Don’t worry! We still have a few March and early April sessions left! DM us your email address, and we’ll send you our AKP client magazine, complete with our session pricing, timeline, testimonials, faqs, and more!
