Graduation Pictures Are a Forever Memory
It’s close to graduation and with a flurry of activity you may not have thought about senior portraits yet. Or, as a junior going into senior year, you may already be thinking about senior photos! Either way, the time is now to start planning, prepping, and scheduling your high school senior photos. But, what do you need to know before you go? These tips will help you know what to bring and what to expect when working with a professional photographer.
Scheduling: Choosing the right time to plan your photos is determined by many different factors. Do you want them in time to be included in the yearbook? Do you want winter portraits instead of spring photos? Do you want a seasonal hobby or sport represented? Schedule your photos early in the year so you can use them for yearbook photos, graduation announcements, and more.
What to Wear: choose two or three outfits max - one that’s dressier and another that’s casual. Choose clothes that are comfortable, not too loose or tight, and with colors that are flattering to your skin tone and hair color. Stay away from neon colors or clashing patterns, as these will distract from your face.
Makeup and Grooming: Professional makeup provides a special touch for formal photos since you’ll hold onto these photos for a long time. However, doing your makeup yourself will look more natural, as you’ll look the same as you do every day. We recommend that if you hire a professional makeup artist, you request a very natural look. When choosing your hairstyle, go for something that isn’t too far from the norm of your everyday style. Men should have a clean shave on the day of the shoot.
