I’m sure you’ve seen dozens and dozens of your friends senior pictures – can you remember what they look like? Of course not. It’s most likely a blur of same old backgrounds, same old poses, same lighting.
So how do you get memorable, out of the box senior pictures? – by letting me photograph you. Outdoors. No crazy props, uncomfortable poses, or weird expressions.
How I shoot:
I prefer to shoot outdoors in natural light. We can go anywhere you like. I will also bring off-camera lighting for some dramatic images. Need a plain background image for school? No problemo! (just so you know, I don’t like those, either) I LOVE shooting in a modern, fashion magazine style! I want us to have fun during your session, and to get some memorable images you will be proud to show your friends, but ones that your parents will approve of, as well.
Props and Stuff:
Do you play guitar? Drive a cool car? Have a dog? Collect stuffed animals? Play sports? Bring your precious and beloved stuff! This session is about YOU and what makes you look and feel good. (you probably shouldn’t bring a cat or a tarantula – I’m just sayin’)
What to wear for a senior session:
First of all, be comfortable. If you’re not comfy in your own clothes, your pictures will reflect stiffness and awkwardness. I encourage you to have at least two looks for your shoot – a casual look and a glamorous look. You are probably more comfortable in the casual outfit, which can as simple as jeans and a t-shirt. We’d start out with that. But I also want you to dress up, so a suit or a dress should be on the list of stuff to bring. We have lots of fun with dressy clothes! If I was a senior, here’s what I’d bring:
* button shirt or polo, or both
* dressy pants
* dressy shirt
* prom dress (yes, that’s how I roll)
* black shoes
* high heels
Yes please. If you don’t know anyone in your school who’s had their senior pictures taken by me, then we need to talk. I give my senior models all kinds of goodies to show off at home and to their friends. Spaces are limited to 6 models per school, so tell your friends and let’s arrange a photoshoot!
