Choosing what you wear to your senior photo shoot is kind of a big deal. After all, anyone who
cares about fashion will tell you that what you wear is an expression of who you are. It's
obviously not the only thing that defines you, but the duds you don certainly make a first -- and
lasting -- impression.
When selecting your session day outfits, think about what your style sense is and what you
envision for the shoot. I highly recommend flipping through fashion magazines, perusing
Pinterest and checking out in-the-know blogs for inspiration.
And don't forget: from head to toe, details matter! Thoughtfully select the perfect shoes, accessories, jewelry and even layering details when putting together your outfits.
Dressing in layers is a great way to get the most out of your session. This will help to give you a
different look without having to do an entire outfit change. Adding a vest, jacket, or fashion scarf will effortlessly change up your outfit.
When choosing colors, remember that lighter colors tend to accentuate weight, while darker
colors have a more slimming effect. Try to select colors that will not clash with each other or
the season. If you have multiple outfit changes, choose an outfit that you love and one that
your parents love.
Parents don’t always have similar styles as their children. This way, everyone
will be happy. Typically parents have a more classic taste. This will actually help you in the long run, as something that is trendy now will go out of style as the years progress.
Once you have your ensembles selected, take some quick snapshots of yourself and ask others
for their thoughts and opinions. From there, you can make any adjustments or narrow down your selections.
Oh, and as your photographer, I want to see pictures of your outfits, too! Not just because I'm
dying to see your fabulous fashion sense ASAP, but because knowing what you'll wear helps me
choose session locations. This is all about you, sweetheart, and we're going to make you look -- and feel -- like a bajillion bucks!
P. S. I do suggest bringing a few backup garments and accessories to the actual photo session.
Just in case!
