Senior Portrait Session Preparation
Be creative! Once we have the formal pictures taken for the yearbook we can create some personalized photos that reflect you! This is more like a model shoot than the typical formal poses you’ve seen in the past.
Personality Props: You can bring items such as your cheerleading outfit, sports jersey, musical instrument, a pet, your car, dirt bike, four wheeler, the sky is the limit! Treat this as a model shoot and practice some facial expressions and poses in a mirror before your session. Get ideas from fashion magazines. Call me ahead of time with your ideas so I can get a visual of where and how to showcase you and your props.
Clothes: Bring at least 3 changes of clothes. Dressy clothes, funky clothes, suit & tie, and prom dresses are all great. Clothes that you are comfortable in, like jeans are always a good way to start. Unless you are a stick -- stay away from horizontal stripes and choose some outfits with long sleeves. It's a good idea to have at least one long-sleeve outfit, even if it's summer time. Sleeveless shirts or sundresses are okay for some photos, but generally, you may not be as pleased with the results in some poses. Bare arms tend to make you look heavier.
Colors: Any solid color works best, earthy colors like brown, rust, wine or green look great outside. Some prints are good, just not a crazy busy one that will draw attention away from you. Be careful with stripes, sometimes they can make you appear larger than you really are.
Accessories: Don't forget to accessorize. Bring bold accessories such as shoes, boots, heels, jewelry, sunglasses, hats, scarves, etc...
Complexion: If you have any complexion issues, use makeup to correct the issues as best as you can, but don’t cake it on. Retouching is included for all photos 5x7 and larger and wallets.
Most of all bring your personality and be ready to laugh and to have fun!
