Preparing for your Senior Portraits

Preparing for your Senior Portraits

Senior Portraits mark an important milestone... it’s the photos that you will share with family and friends, plus it’s what immortalizes you in the yearbook. A compelling portrait is a collaboration between you and the photographer. You can help get the portrait you desire by following a few basic tips:

Clothes
* Wear your favorite outfits that shows your personality
* Solid colors and long sleeves photograph best
* Consider bringing letter jackets, sports equipment, or a musical instrument to
express your interests, making your portraits personal
* Clear or neutral colored nails work best
* When styling your hair, choose a comfortable style you know looks good
* Don't get a last minute haircut. Give your hair a week or so to grow out
* Bring all clothes on hangers. Be sure clothes are not wrinkled
* Bring a variety of outfits - both causal and formal
* Coordinate your outfit from head to toe
* Girls- Dresses w/ boots or cute shoes

Skin
* Minor blemishes and scars will be removed by retouching
