When it comes to wardrobe selection for your senior photo shoot,
let your guiding light be the 3 T’s: include clothes
that are trendy, timeless, and true to you.
For one of your outfits, choose something trendy, such as a 2-piece.
pantsuit with a cropped top, a romper, or fun accessories
like ankle socks and scrunchies. Even bringing along a pop of color like
heart-shaped sunglasses can be fun. This is your chance to take risks.
and be bold with your outfit expression.
This is the outfit where you would want to include neutral.
colors, like black, white, and shades of gray. If it is warmer out,
you can opt for a little black dress (ladies) or a black t-shirt (guys).
If it’s cooler, I recommend pulling in pieces like scarves, hats,
coats and suits.
This “T” is more about color scheme and pattern of the fabric, which,
to remain timeless must be made to accentuate you, not to
stand out on its own.
Lastly, be sure to include an outfit that is unique to your style, hobbies,
or personality. This can include school uniforms, sports uniforms, and
or an item that represents where you are headed next. It is so important to
use the opportunity of being in front of a camera to capture.
not only your look, but your personality. This is another chance to
take risks, but this time it’s more so to showcase your lifestyle,
not just your personal style.
A NOTE ON PLANNING YOUR TIME
When you are planning "getting ready" time before your session
(scheduling your hair, makeup, etc.) please give yourself a lot more.
time than you think you'll need. Make sure to account for things like
traffic, getting lost and parking, so you can prevent unnecessary
stress, arrive a few minutes early to your session and be ready to
start on time. Any photographer knows the importance of light, which
can change by the minute! Be sure to account for this when preparing
for your shoot day.
*BE SURE YOUR OUTFITS ARE PRESSED
*DON'T FORGET TO CONSIDER YOUR UNDERGARMENTS, IT'S IMPORTANT THEY MATCH YOUR OUTFITS.
*YOU ALSO WANT TO CONSIDER YOUR NAIL COLOR FOR HANDS AND FEET. TRY TO CHOOSE A COLOR THAT WON'T DRAW AWAY FROM YOUR FACE AND DON'T FORGET YOUR TOES, BE SURE TO MATCH YOUR NAILS, ESPECIALLY, IF YOU DECIDE TO WEAR SANDALS OR TOE SHOWING SHOES!
It is important to remember these tips, as it will assistant in a faster turn time on your images because there will be less editing required!
