High School Senior Photos Golf

I have photographed a couple of high school seniors that will be graduating in 2021. I love to do sports portraits! Golf, volleyball, soccer, basketball, fishing, trap shooting, baseball, track, football, lacrosse and more. I love it all.

Senior Portraits in the Lilacs

This senior is doing a series of mini sessions for her portraits so that we can capture different seasons, hair styles and all of her vibrant personality! She loves fashion and makeup and I can’t wait to see what types of sessions that she styles and the concepts she creates. Of course I have some ideas of my own for her senior photos too! The lilacs are so beautiful right now. Call 612.384.6328 to get on the soon to be full schedule. The Landscape Arboretum will open to professional photographers in mid June.senior photo girl fun_bright_senior_girl_flowers_portrait senior girl photo_flowers_personality

What to Wear for Senior Portraits: Guys

Here are just a few of my senior guys from the Class of 2017! Although you guys may not be as thrilled about your senior photos as the girls, I promise it is possible to have a great time at a photo session! What to wear is just as important for the guys as it is for the girls, since these are photos you will look back on for years to come. Here’s our best tips for helping you look like the proud graduate you are:

-Bring a variety of clothes, with several different styles. Consider bringing a classic sweater or button down, an outfit with an everyday look, a sports uniform, etc. Layers are the best way to get a few different looks with just a couple of pieces, like a blazer. Even if you wear jeans and a tee shirt every day, try a nice button down for a more polished look.

-Wear solid colors, and steer clear of busy prints: Solid, earthy and dark colors will accentuate your facial features and expressions, and not detract from you. Try choosing things that show your personal taste and character, including accessories like hats, your favorite shoes, and your sports equipment.

-Please bring dark t-shirts to wear under dark shirts & sweaters and light t-shirts to wear under light shirts & sweaters. A contrasting undershirt does not look good and is distracting in the final images.

What to Wear for Senior Photos – Girls

High School Senior portraits are an once-in-a-lifetime event. You’ve probably been thinking about this day for a long time, and one of the questions you are sure to ask is, “What do I wear?” Here are a few tips on what to bring and what to wear!

-Bring a variety of clothes. Try to include clothes from other seasons; just because it is summer, doesn’t mean that you can’t bring a great sweater or a pair of boots to get an “Autumn” look. Layers are always a great way to get a few different looks. Try to capture your personal style in what you bring. 

-Solid colors are a great choice. Remember that darker, earthy colors will show off your face the best, and bright colors will distract. Try to steer clear of large, busy patterns, but small and subtle patterns like florals can look beautiful. 

-Don’t be afraid to accessorize! Especially if you wear solid colors, accessories are the perfect way to add some of your personal taste, whether it’s vintage, sophisticated, or classic.  Scarves, hats, and fun jewelry can add visual interest, as well as props like guitars or sports equipment. 

-Be sure to try on everything before you go, and walk in front of a large mirror and in front of a light source to make sure it all fits right and isn’t see-through. Bring appropriate undergarments, such as a strapless nude bra so no straps peek out.

What to Wear for Senior Portraits

A question that I get a lot is, “What should I wear for senior pictures?” Bring a variety of clothing choices. Try to include clothes for different seasons. Don’t think that just because it’s summer that you can’t bring a great sweater. I LOVE layers and textures! Have fun with your outfits! Solid colors are a good choice. Remember that darker, earthy colors will show your face off the best. Bright colors will distract from you. I don’t mind patterns if they are subtle. Your outfits need to be your personal style. It is good to bring different styles of clothes so you have variety in your images. Such as a fun vintage look, a black dress or sun dress, classy dark sweater, neutral colored tops, an everyday look, a layered look, a funky or trendy outfit, an old prom dress to have fun in, your sport or hobby outfit, or a couture or sophisticated classic look. Having trouble choosing, text me some images of what you would like to bring and I can help make some decisions for you. (612-384-6328) Don’t forget I LOVE accessories too! Express your unique style with jewelry, scarves, hats, shoes, flowers, balloons, glitter & musical instruments. Be creative and give your photos that extra character. Girls… make sure you bring appropriate undergarments for each outfit. Strapless nude bras are your friend! Try on your outfits before your session so you know everything fits right. Guys… Please bring dark t-shirts to wear under dark shirts & sweaters and light t-shirts to wear under light shirts & sweaters. A contrasting undershirt does not look good and is distracting. Layers are great for you too. I love a blazer with jeans, or a nice sweater along with a casual t-shirt look or button down. The tops are more important than the lower half.
