5 Tips To Style Your Senior Photos

Seniors

June 7, 2022

Are you getting ready for your senior photos and wondering what to wear? Choosing great clothing is key to having a great senior portrait session. It matters SO much in the overall look and final images. This is not to say that you have to spend a lot of money on your clothing….style can happen without breaking the bank. Think of LAYERING – this adds depth and dimension in a photograph, also think of TEXTURES – your cable knit sweater… that has texture to it and adds interest to the image. Accessories are also a great polishing piece to an image and adds texture as well.

And if we work together, I am happy to help you style your senior photos to create a variety of images with many outfits choices.

In the meantime, here are 5 tips to nail your senior photos –

Capture your dressy side!

Bonus tips for outfits

  1. Bring something short on you, but also remember to bring something long on you….this brings in COMPLETELY different posing we can do!
  2. Step out of your comfort zone for one of the outfits
  3. Go as casual as you’d like to as dressy as you’d like
  4. Have a pop of color in one of your outfits
  5. Stay away from too many patterns
  6. Add accessories!

Variety is Key!

Just remember – variety is key! It’s likely you are having multiple outfits during your session, and it is great to have variety throughout your pictures. So you have an outfit for every occasion. And it shows the many sides to….YOU! I will help you style your senior photos!
