These are YOUR senior photos, so they should "be you."

When you choose outfits for your senior session, the most important thing to consider is that the clothes you wear are your style and go along with what you would normally wear. Don't go out and buy new clothes that you think should be in your senior photos. Start by going through your closet first, then if you want, you can buy a few things to add to what you already have. The bonus to using clothes you already have is you know how they fit you, if they are comfortable, and how they move on your body.


Pick out a variety of outfits.

I love and highly recommend choosing some dressy and some casual senior outfits. If you are a girl, have a dress or two, but also jeans with a cute blouse and t-shirt. If you are a boy, maybe what you will choose are slacks with a button up, then jeans with a few t-shirts to switch out. I think having 3 outfits picked out and ready to go for you session is ideal. Always, reach out to me if you need any help planning our outfits. I am happy to be a second or third opinion.


Plan Ahead

Right after, or even before you book a session, be planning what you want to wear. Don’t wait until the night before. That just adds unnecessary stress and don’t forget that beauty sleep the night before. ;) And remember, use me! I am here to help and more than happy to give suggestions! (Pinterest has some great ideas too!)


Layers and Accessories

Layers and accessories can add so much and a photo session is the perfect time to pull out some special jewelry or fancy shoes. Layers are fun to have to stay warm or if it is getting a little too warm, it can allow you to peel some off and give some variety in your wardrobe. Think about sweaters, cardigans, hats, boots, tights, vests, dressy coats, etc.
