Senior Picture time is Here! I’ve been working with Seniors since the class of 2008, and I’ve picked up a few tips on clothing along the way.
1) Pack Heavy!
I love it when Seniors come into my studio with a huge bag of stuff! That gives us options, and the more options the better! We don’t have to use everything you bring, but it helps to have a lot of variety to work with.
Dresses are fun, in the studio, and outside!
2) All Seasons
Even if it’s hot, or freezing cold, bring a variety of seasons. Even if it’s summer, I bet you have a favorite jacket or boots, etc. Bring them along, and I will turn up the a/c! :) Layers are cute, even in summer… and your favorite sun dress will look good, even as it gets cooler out.
Long sleeves look good in every season, and jackets with hoods are always cute!
I love it when girls come into the studio with accessories for each outfit. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hats, scarves, shoes. Bring it all!
Accessories add interesting detail.
Be sure to bring something that you do with your spare time. Sports uniforms and other items, musical instruments, hobby items, etc are great for pics! If you have a favorite past-time but aren’t sure how to incorporate it into your pictures, let me know, I have lots of ideas!
If you are involved in sports, be sure to bring your uniforms!
A lot of sleeveless shirts, some are ok, but sleeves or at least straps are better for close-ups.
Just Shorts. Some poses are going to look better in jeans or capris, so make sure you bring those too.
Clothes that aren’t you… you won’t like the end result.
Cars or trucks are great for outdoor pictures.
Most guys aren’t bringing me as many outfits to their session as girls. But I still like a lot of variety.
Jeans, shorts, t-shirts, nicer shirts, the more you bring the better. Bring your favorites- things you feel comfortable in.
Bring a range from dress shirts, to t-shirts.
Since guys usually aren’t as into the clothes, I really encourage you to bring “other stuff”. Sports uniforms and items, cars/trucks/motorcycles, musical instruments, and just about anything else!
It’s worth tracking down your sports uniforms and equipment for your pictures.
If you play a musical instruments, bring them along! The more, the better!
Paying attention to these details will go a long way to making your seniors pictures even better!
I am excited to work with even more of you from the class of 2012!
It’s your Senior year! Be yourself. Look Amazing!
