HELPFUL STUFF FOR YOU:
REGARDING EYEGLASSES: If your everyday glasses are transitional, tinted or coated, please bring an alternate frame with plain glass. Tints, coatings and transitional lenses will reflect an unnatural glare and hide your beautiful eyes.
Need Additional Editing?
Want a different colored background?
Want extensive skin smoothing editing?
Let me know what you want; generally $20 per picture will cover anything you need over and above the light and natural editing included in your package price.
What Should You Wear for Your Senior Portraits?
When in doubt about color, consult Mother Nature. What she provides will photograph the best: vibrant gemstone colors; delicate flower petal hues; warm earth tones.
Are your eyeglasses an integral part of you? Then do wear them for your senior pictures. HOWEVER! If your lenses are transitional, tinted or coated, they likely won’t photograph well at all. So bring a frame with plain lenses. We want the world to see those beautiful eyes!
SOMETHING NEW OR TRIED & TRUE?
Plan to wear outfits that you know and love. It’s important your clothing flatters you, fits you and will still look great 20 years from now. The perfect outfit is the one that always makes you smile.
Embrace your colorful culture traditional clothing. You might not wear a sari or Hawaiian lei every day, but they can add lovely, sparkling elements to enhance YOUR story.
YOU GOT THE MOTION
Make sure your outfit is flattering no matter what you are doing: sitting, standing, twirling or kneeling to pet your best four-legged friend. If your pants look weird when you sit, wear something else. If your dress is beautiful only when you’re standing, it’s the wrong dress. You’ll want a variety of poses in your senior portraits, so select clothing that will work with you, not against you.
SURPRISES? MAYBE NOT…
LADIES: What’s underneath is just as important as what the sun sees. If you’re wearing white or pastels, or the material is lightweight, it’s essential to do a wardrobe check in natural light before your session. If you like what you see in a natural light pre-check, OK. If not, pick a different outfit.
GENTLEMEN: Bunching and tenting doesn’t work. Check out everything before your portrait appointment and make changes where necessary. There are some things Photoshop won’t fix.
Apply lotion to smooth your skin and add a bit of glow.
More Tips for Memorable Senior Portraits
Select Flattering Outfits: Fit, Color and Style Count!
FIT: whether your personal style is classic and timeless or uber-contemporary, make sure your clothing fits and flatters!
• Go into daylight to determine how colors look on you.
• Make sure your clothing colors flatter your skin tone, and don’t wash you out.
• Jewel tones add vibrancy to your portraits since they photograph more vivaciously than neutrals.
• Big, bold patterns make big, bold statements.
• If this is your style, wear it proudly.
• If the pattern makes you feel awkward, trust your instincts and choose something more understated.
Hair, Glorious Hair: Your Hirsute Signature
If you want to try a new hair style, do so at least four months before you get your senior portrait taken. If the new style works, terrific! If the new ‘do is a disaster, you’ll still have time to restyle or let your locks grow longer. Either way, when it’s time to reshape or trim your tresses, schedule your stylist appointment a week before your photo session, so your hair has time to relax and not look shocked.
To recap: experiment at least four months before photo time; touch-up and trim about a week before your session.
Breakouts And/Or Shaving Cuts: Sigh…Part of Life
Relax. I will lightly and naturally edit all of your selected photos with various skin smoothing techniques. If you have extra concerns, please tell me. I want you to love your senior portraits for many years to come.
Big Smile Or No Smile: How To Look Appealing And Natural Either Way
People always prefer photos with expressions that are genuine, and thinking happy thoughts will make all your 52 facial muscles react naturally. So let your thoughts wander to happy places, happy events and the ones you love. Want a serious image? OK, here’s how to make your expression thoughtful and sincere, rather than grim and creepy: think of a challenge. That way you’ll look serious, not sour!
Prepare: Give Yourself The Gift Of Time
At least a week before your appointment, try on all the outfits you think will make the final cut. This includes jewelry and accessories: shoes, scarves, hats, etc. Narrow down your selection to one outfit with a removable layer, or three totally different outfits such as sportswear, dressy clothes, your favorite everyday finery. Next, see what needs dry cleaning, laundering or ironing, and take care of this now. The day of your portrait session, carefully pack your extra outfits or carry the clothing on hangers. Photoshop will not fix food stains, tears or wrinkles.
