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. Many more of the images are from the waist up.

Kendra | Class of 2017 | Minnesota Senior Portraits

In light of our recent patriotic holiday, I am happy to share this cute senior session, where she wore shades of red, white and blue!  Kendra is from Chanhassen High School, and will be graduating in 2017. She is one of the sweetest girls ever, and is part of her high school dance team.

She picked a few different off-the-shoulder looks for her session, which has been a theme for a lot of my seniors this year! The feminine and stylish look of off-the-shoulder tops is a fun and beautiful way to beat the heat during hot summer months! Plus, you can show off your summer tan! We love this blue off the shoulder romper that would be perfect for any pool party or brunch! Rompers are so cute! The off the shoulder or “cold shoulder” style also looks perfect in cream or white, and paired with denim cut-offs. We like this version from Macy’s.

BOOK NOW! Mention that you saw Kendra’s collage here and I will give you extra proofs to choose from at your own session!Kendra proof book

Congratulations to the Class of 2016 Graduates!

As the Class of 2016 prepares to walk across that stage and receive that very hard-earned diploma, I wanted to wish them a big congratulations! Not only is this group of seniors smart, kind, and athletic, they also are going forward into the world to do amazing things. The seniors below are heading off to serve our country in the military, to achieve new academic milestones at Ivy Leagues, Engineering schools, and continuing their athletics at college, as well.

You might be wondering what part a senior photographer plays in the final year of high school. I hope that the photos I hand over to each senior and their parents will always remind them of the celebrations and milestones that the year held. They may forget my name, but I will never forget their smiles and hearts, and I hope that they will always treasure their senior photos!  I’m so proud of these 2016 grads from Chanhassen, Chaska, Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Shakopee, Waconia, Holy Family, Benilde St. Margaret, and Minneapolis South. I wish you all nothing but happiness and success!
