3 Tips for Fantastic Senior Portraits
It’s your senior year of high school! You’re almost finished with high school and looking forward to a bright future ahead. The senior portrait session is your opportunity to express who you are and have fun! I love to photograph high school seniors because I always have fun too. Planning ahead for session day is key. Here are 3 tips for fantastic senior portraits.
- Be Prepared (like the boy scouts): plan your outfits ahead of time down to the shoes that you’ll wear. Bring several options from formal to casual so that you have a variety of looks in your portfolio. You know what looks best on you so don’t be afraid to go with your own style. Texture and layers are always good too – you can add or remove hats, accessories, etc. easily during the shoot.
- Be Creative: let’s do a session in a location that means something to you. Where do you like to hang out? What do you like to do? Talk to your photographer about a photo shoot in a fun location. Or bring props to your session that show a little bit about you.
- Be Real: we want these photographs to truly represent you. It’s important to me that you are comfortable and free to move around and have fun with this session. The real you will show through in these images and I love that. Be free and be real and be you…
With Tara Flannery Photography, you will always be guided through the process from start to finish. We start with a consultation so that I can get to know you better and you get to know me. That way, when we meet for our session, we are already on the same page and can immediately start creating fantastic images. When we meet to review the images together, I’ll help you through the decision process and guide you toward the best images and products for you.
Senior Session with Addison
Addison is super sweet and fun and we had a great senior portrait session! I recently photographed her good friend at this same location. We got some shots that were similar but many shots were totally unique and absolutely gorgeous! First, Addison was prepared with her outfits and was able to easily change up her look with a different top. At the end, she put on a cute dress with her boots to change up the look one last time. The end result is a great mix of looks. She was also prepared with hair and makeup that were very well done! And she was real…soft smiles and serious looks gave us authentic and real photographs that she and her family will treasure for a long time. It’s this moment in time…a moment that you will never see again. Let’s get this moment so it lives on forever.
