Tips for a fun and successful senior portrait session

 

Tip #1 Have Fun

 

The best senior portraits are where you feel comfortable and having fun. The more you get into having your senior portraits taken the more you will enjoy the final product. Show off the things you enjoy, let your personality and attitude show. Bring a friend to help you feel more at ease and do a couple poses together.

 

Tip #2 Be Yourself

 

While the photographer will have several posing Ideas for you. Don’t be afraid to suggest poses that you want to do. You don’t need to feel like you must have a big smile for every pose. Try and mix up your facial expressions. By doing this your personality will come out. Most importantly be comfortable in the pose. If you don’t feel comfortable it will show in the photos. So, feel free to adjust your self to a more comfortable position.

 

Tip#3 Clothing and Outfits

 

Be sure and bring a variety of outfits. As I don’t have a limit to how many clothing changes you can have. It is best to bring a variety of cloths that you feel comfortable wearing. Also consider prioritizing the cloths as we only have a maximum of two hours. Dress in layers as this can be used to bring out different looks with one set of cloths. Jackets are a great item to bring.It is better to bring too much then to little.
