Senior Photos

Now is the time to start thinking about 2012 Senior Portraits. Lets get them early before it gets too hot :)
What to think about when preparing for those Senior photos..
do you play an instrument? a sport? what are your interests? Lets incorporate them in your session.
  • Wear clothes that make you feel comfortable and reflect your personality.
  • Bring multiple outfits.
  • Bring a variety of outfits - both causal and formal.
  • Coordinate your outfit from head to toe.
  • Keep the tonal range of clothing in the same group; don't mix lights & darks in the same outfit.
  • Select 2-3 complementing solid colors in tones such as greens, blues, purples, burgundies, khakis, black, navy and denim.
  • Avoid large prints, stripes, busy patterns and bright colors - these overwhelm and create distractions in your portrait.
  • A black shirt or top is always a good choice.
  • Bring appropriate shoes, socks and a belt for each outfit.
  • Be sure the clothes you select fit properly, especially shirt collars.
  • Short sleeves are OK, but long sleeves are best. Be sure to bring at least 1-2 long sleeve tops.
  • Dark clothes will help to make you look thin.
  • Traditional clothing styles will better stand the test of time.
  • Medium to dark clothes look the best on dark backgrounds.
  • Medium to light colors look the best on lighter colored backgrounds.
  • Earth tones are best for outdoor portraits.
  • Bring all clothes on hangers. Be sure clothes are not wrinkled.

  • Musical Instrument
  • Leather Jacket
  • Letter Jacket
  • Sports Uniform/Jersey
  • Hats
  • Sports Equipment ( bat, football, volleyball,etc.)
  • Sunglasses
  • Hobby Items
  • Cars/Motorcycles
  • Pets (Pets are welcome, but please call in advance. Bring a leash and toys/treats to keep their attention.)
