Make the most of your senior portraits by following these easy tips that we’ve outlined below. You’re only a senior once, so let us help make this special. Putting in the effort now, will pay dividends in the end.
Allow ample time to get ready so you won’t be rushed and uptight. You want to look and feel your best. Arrive at the studio 15 minutes before your appointment to allow time to pay for your session, complete any paperwork and to get any questions that you have answered.
Wear your hair in your usual style. If you want to experiment with a new style, don’t pick the day of your appointment to do so. Allow three days after a haircut for a more natural look.
Bring one-to-two changes of clothing that best reflect your personality. Make sure to try on your outfits before you come to make sure you are comfortable with your choices. Be sure that your clothes are neat and pressed. It’s best to bring your clothing on hangers and/or in a garment bag.
We are interested in making your Senior Portrait the most important portrait of your life. We want these portraits to reflect YOU!! You are encouraged to bring personal items that reflect the real you. For example: hobbies, musical instruments, uniforms, sports equipment, trucks, etc. Any students that would like to take photos with their car would need to pay an additional fee to allow for the photographer to leave the studio.
You can have your friends in your photos too!! Just have them come along with you and we will include them in some of your casual photo poses. If additional group photos are wanted, there will be an additional fee. Be sure to let us know if you are bringing a friend when you make your appointment.
Glasses often change magnification and can cause reflections and distortions that sometimes cannot be corrected in retouching. This can be a major problem, especially in outdoor photography. If you do not have contacts to wear, please discuss that you will be wearing glasses when you make your appointment.
MAKE – UP
Blemishes may show on previews, but our retouching will minimize them on your finished portraits. Females should keep their make-up natural-looking for normal daytime activities. Keep in mind that make-up that you might wear for night-time may look too heavy and un-natural. Guys should shave within an hour or two of your appointment, but please be careful to not sustain cuts or nicks. A five-o’clock shadow cannot be removed and all hairs/whiskers will be seen on camera.
Don’t forget to wear your class ring! This is a very special item that always goes well with any outfit.
