What to Wear for Senior Pictures
Match Your Personality! It is important that you wear clothing that is comfortable and your outfit selections should match your personality and your own personal style.
Dress for the season! Try to stick to colors that work with the season. If it is winter time stick to warm clothes so you will be comfortable in for your session and the same goes if it is summer time.
Don’t Go With What Is In Style: Things that are in style do not necessarily always photograph well. Find clothing items that you can move around and sit comfortably in.
Add Depth and Flair: One of my favorite things to do at a senior session is to incorporate props. Props can add interest, depth and an extra flair to your pictures. While you might have recently seen photos that incorporate a specific prop, try not to use something that will not look really dated in 20 years’ time. Classic is definitely better and there are many fun options to choose from. Props should also be relative to the personality of the senior. At Bailey’s senior session, I spotted a classic Chevrolet truck in her uncle’s garage. He allowed us to use it and it was an amazing asset to her senior pictures. Mainly, because Bailey is a laid back country girl and she happens to look good in red! Remember, using props can be the perfect addition to your photos but make sure that they don’t become the main focus.

Tan Lines: Watch for tan lines that will be accented or show in your senior pictures.
Wear a Tank Top: This makes it super easy when you are changing outfits during your senior session.
