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.

When you hire a professional photographer to do your headshots or branding photos, you might think you’re just getting current photos to put on your business cards or promotional materials. Maybe you’re a real estate agent looking for photos for postcards or open house flyers, or maybe you’re a mom who owns her own small business. Guess what? You’re doing more than just taking a headshot! You’re creating your personal brand. And, it matters because it’s the first impression your customers, clients, or friends will have of you! You owe it to yourself to make it a great one.
When you need to establish your corporate presence on LinkedIn, social media, or your website, choose a photographer with experience in helping achieve natural and polished professional portraiture. I specialize in helping you feel comfortable and look your best in front of the camera! Remember, your personal brand matters because it is what people say about you when you are not in the room. What does yours say about you? How do you want to be photographed? How are you going to use these images? These are just some of the questions I will ask as I get to know you and help you put your brand out there!
Let’s get started!
One of the benefits of hiring a professional photographer is that you get customized help in choosing products and images for your home, walls, or office space. I can use my years of experience to help you customize your portraits or a college of images. Over the time I’ve been a photographer, I have learned what images and sizes look best on certain walls in your home. I also help you get the highest quality products that are available on the market. You can choose from framed wall portraits, framed & matted wall portraits, framed canvas prints, and canvas gallery wraps.
Together, we will choose the portraits that work best together to tell your story and choose the best product and sizes that will look great in your room. I will show you different options when you send me images of your wall space. I will then custom design your gallery, and show you exactly what it would look like on your wall! Just follow the instructions below. I am looking forward to creating something you will cherish forever!
I also pin lots of inspiration on my Pinterest board, which you can find here!
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.
Do you have a senior going off to college? Be sure to schedule a family portrait. Yes, we know you have about a million other things to do, but you will never regret capturing your family in this season before your child leaves the nest! You’ll want that last family portrait with just your children….after this, the next family images could be at their weddings! From that moment on, you’ll have new family members in your photos. A timeless photo of your family unit right now, as they are, is a beautiful and lasting memory.
As a mom myself, I can testify that I wish I had taken more professional portraits of my own family…I miss the days when my boys were young, now that they are grown! Below, I’ve included some examples of the kinds of family photos that Remember Me Photography has taken recently. Many of these were turned into paintings before framing or made into gallery-quality, wrapped canvas pieces. No matter the season or type (formal or casual) of image you are dreaming of, we can achieve it! Contact me today to book!
