Your senior session should reflect your style. Think about what makes you feel the most attractive and the most comfortable. Spend some time finding at least 4 outfits that best represent your style. Do you have a favorite color? Mine is purple. If you have a color that you love then don't be afraid to wear it in your photos.
Ask for advice. You have friends and family who will be ready and willing to offer their opinion. But, if you find yourself in a position where you just can't decide, don't hesitate to reach out to me for advice as well. That's what I'm here for!
As a part of my senior sessions, I offer an optional formal (drape) portrait. Think about whether or not you need that portrait, this way I can have the studio set up and ready for you in advance.
Outfits to Consider:
If you, or your parents, have a favorite location where you would like to take pictures during your senior session let me know in advance so I can map out our session schedule. We will want to choose the best and most efficient starting point. If you don't have a place in mind, then please share with me the types of places you like and that speak to your personality. This way, we can choose a location that reflects who you are and where you'll fit right in.
Some locations require advanced permission to access. So let's be sure to think through that before the day of your session.
One of the benefits of working with me is that I have access to two rural locations of my own. I have a property in Bumpass with fields, a pond, a river, and an old cabin. I also have a rustic farm where my studio is located. You're welcome to include either of those locations in your portrait session.
