You’ve booked your session. DO NOT FREAK OUT! Yes, it’s time to select your outfits for your session, but you can do this! And I’m here to help (along with the internet, Pinterest, and some style bloggers.)
WHAT TO WEAR FOR SENIOR PORTRAITS
Other things to bring:
Comfy shoes for walking between locations
Accessories – do you have a sentimental necklace or ring? A fun hat or sunglasses? A family quilt or blanket to sit on?
Momentos – items that you’d like to include in a photo, like a letterman’s jacket, school logo item, college bound T shirt, motto sign, item from your favorite sport
Girls, make sure you can sit in at least ONE of your outfits. Please don’t wear 3 short skirts or your poses will be limited to standing.
Guys, your socks/shoe combination matters. Be mindful of what socks/shoes you are wearing for each outfit.
When in doubt, bring it! Have a 4th outfit you can’t decide between? Bring it! Maybe our location choices will lend to one outfit over another.
Solids, neutrals and layering are great, timeless tips. Stay away from trends that are too out there. You’ll have these photos forever and you’ll want them to be timeless, too.
Hair for girls – if you are one to change your look, consider your outfit sequencing to allow for hair changes. Braiding or a messy top bun toward the end of the session is awesome but we want to do it last so it doesn’t mess up your hair down look.
To finish up your look, consider having your hair and makeup done so you’ll feel like the best version of yourself. Guys, get a haircut about 1-2 weeks before your session, and don’t forget to trim the back of your neck and shave before your session!

Lay everything out the night before and be sure to iron anything that is wrinkled. Show up in a t-shirt and shorts so you don’t mess up your outfit along the way with wrinkles or sweat. Come prepared to have a blast and to knock these photos out of the park! I can’t wait to work with you!
