Senior photos are a way to document the right of passage that is graduating high school. Two things I am always asked when I book a senior session is Where should we do it and what should I wear. I am always happy to give a few suggestions but feel like the answer to both should represent the Senior whos photos they are.
- What should I wear? Depending on your photographer you may be allowed to wear more than one outfit. If not make sure your outfit is totally you. If you don’t normally wear dresses or skirts and heals you don’t have to wear them for your photos. It is much better to choose an outfit you will be comfortable in as being in front of the camera is uncomfortable enough without having to worry about being uncomfortable in your clothes. If you do get more than one outfit I suggest one a bit more formal and one super casual but both totally representing your personality. If you live in band tees and jeans go with a band tee and your favorite jeans and converse and then dress it up by putting a blazer over a band tee trading the jeans for a dark wash or slack and a black boot. Or tie the Band tee and add a black skirt and boots. You can dress almost anything up 😊. Look through your closet and pick your favorite pieces and go from there.
- Where should we have the session, This is another question that has a personal answer because the vibe of the location should fit your personality. If you are edgy it would not make sense to have your session in a field of flowers. Instead think about if you want a nature or urban feel. If you want urban do you want Urbex or more city life? Once you know that then ask for suggestions that fit the feel that you want. When I am asked for Ideas on where to have a session I always ask these questions first and then we find a place.
Once you know the aswer to these two questions there is nothing holding you back from having an amazing session!.
