What to wear for senior portraits
Every senior has his or her own style. It’s that time in life when you’re figuring out who you are and wardrobe selection is personal and different for everyone! It’s so important to feel good in your own skin and in the clothes that you wear, especially for your senior portraits. I like to chat with my seniors before a session and get to know them and their style a bit. Would your senior never be caught in something formal? No problem. We will start the session in the most formal thing that they will wear. That could be slacks and a polo for guys or a romper for girls. I’m happy if the clothing is chosen by the senior and they feel good in it. Then, we move on to more and more casual clothing. We usually end the session in jeans and a t-shirt because let’s face it, that’s what they wear most of the time. And that’s what I would wear too if I could get away with it 🙂 When choosing clothing for the session, keep patterns to a minimum and rely mostly on solid colors. Choose pieces that you love. Texture and layers are great!
A session with Alissa
Alissa chose a gorgeous white short dress to start off her senior session. I loved the lace and detail and the length of the dress made it youthful and fun! She looked amazing in this dress. Then she changed into another dress in a reddish color with a jean jacket on top. It was so cute and fun and the color was fantastic, especially given the urban scenes in the background. What is your senior’s style and how will the clothing help reflect their personality? I’d love to chat about that!
