This is Your Moment in Time. How will you be remembered?
The most frequently asked question is what should I wear. The simple answer to the question is wear what makes you feel good and most like yourself. We usually tell people to avoid busy patterns, clothes with writing (especially big logos like NIKE or GAP across the chest), bright white (creamy white is all right) and strong red. But, sometimes it’s fun to break all the rules and wear that wild shirt or your most favorite white sweater and that’s OK. We’ll choose different backgrounds or locations that work for those clothes.
Bring a variety of clothes to choose from. Get creative! Bring hats, cool shoes, boots, jackets, jewelry, scarves— you name it! Got an awesome prom dress? Feel free to bring that, too. If you’re unsure about something, bring it anyway.
Don’t cut your hair! Well, we don’t mean never cut your hair but don’t cut it right before pictures. Plan your session at least 2-3 weeks after a hair cut to give your hair a chance to grow into its new style.
Bring props that are meaningful to you. Are you involved in sports, dance or music? We can work with your uniforms, sports equipment or well-loved dance shoes. We want to make your pictures an expression of who you are right now and these activities are part of your identity.
When you call to book your senior portrait session, we’ll probably ask you a few questions. Where do you go to school? Where do you like to hang out? What do you do for fun? Do you do any extra-curricular activities? The answers to these questions will help me guide you in planning your portrait session.
Another common question is where should we go. Most of our seniors like to add at least one location to the session. We pick a location and then walk from place to place taking portraits as we go. We find lots of cool spots to take pictures that way. It’s really up to you. If you want to choose more than one location, that’s fine. There is a $25 location fee for each additional location you choose (a location is defined as a place you have to drive to). If we are just walking, there is no additional charge.
Feel free to bring a friend or a sibling—sometimes it’s nice having someone come along to make you laugh and schlep your gear.
So what are you waiting for?
