As The time once again approaches for senior pictures to begin, I was thinking about some things that are very helpful to bring to your session that make for better photographs & show who you really are.
*Due to the fact that we want to try and match backgrounds & create cohesive looking pictures, we want to make sure we have some basics to work with. It's always good to bring something in black, white or cream, maybe tan or gray. You also want to make sure that you have some solids to work with. These neutrals are also important to have so that those who would like wall art have colors that will blend with their home. Some backgrounds just do not lend themselves to clothes with patterns. While patterned clothes can look good and be a fun addition to your porfolio when used at the right locations, we want to make sure that we have plenty of variety to work with. Better to have too much than not enough. I generally look over the seniors clothes at the beginning of the shoot to see what might look best where.
*One way to enhance your pictures, make them standout, and show a little bit of who you are, is by bringing lots of accessories. Jewelry, Sunglasses, Hats,etc are always a great way to have some fun with your pictures, bring variety, & show your style!
*There are so many fun props that you can incorporate in your pictures to create a portrait that speaks to who you are!
You can incorporate a car, truck, tractor, ATV, bicycle, etc.
Don't forget to incorporate your interests into your portraits my bringing Athletic equipment, instruments, etc.
Hope this has helped to give you all some ideas for your senior pictures this
summer & fall!
Have a great weekend!
