It’s getting to be that time of year to start thinking about your senior portraits. Here are some helpful tips while you start thinking about your photo session. Most importantly, remember to book your session sooner than later, the deadline for photos to be turned into the yearbook is October, and will sneak up on you before you know it.
- Plan on bringing a few outfits in a variety of colors that range from casual to dressy. Accessories are great too (earrings, belts, scarf’s). Depending on the setting one outfit may work better than another. Options are always good. Style tip: Jeans are versatile enough for a casual and dressy look. One pair and multiple tops make for easy changes. Hats are a great way to change up your look. Long sleeves are slimming and scarves add interest to your look. Perfect touch for senior portraits.
- Don’t get a new haircut before your session. If you want to try something new, be sure to book your session out quite a bit to avoid any unwanted style that will be forever seen in your senior portraits. We recommend having hair professional blown out and styled by a stylist for a polished look. You can usually coordinate this with makeup application. Some of our senior sessions have hair and makeup included.
- Play sports? Dance? Have a music hobby? Here’s your chance to shine with incorporating those into your portraits. Bring anything along with you that you think you’d want to see used in your photos. If you’ve seen something done before, ask us about it.
In a few more weeks the trees will start budding again, flowers will be blooming and everything will be waking up from winter.
My goal is to capture what others may not see…the real you! This is your moment in time….how will you be remembered?
