    You have many options. Creating a background in photoshop (if that's what you are using) takes a bit of artistic skill and imagination. And an extensive set of brushes helps too. Did the entire background turn out bad on the original, or just a small area? If it's a small area, your senior portraits may just need retouching by a retouch specialist.

    Your efforts would be better spent if you learned how to make your photos look better while you shoot, rather trying to fix them with photoshop.

    Using a chromakey background makes it easier to make the selection in photoshop. Once you have the background and the subject separated with a selection (or better yet, a layer mask), then you can put in any background you want. Still, it does take time and skill to make the edges look good.
