High School Senior FAQ’s
Where should I go for Senior Portraits? This is one of the most confusing parts of senior portraits. Your school tells you to go to the recommended photographer, yet you get bombarded with mailings from other studios. So here you have it. The only thing you have to do with the school photographer is a headshot for the yearbook. You do not have to purchase anything or do anything additional its your choice where to go! So choose a professional studio that will offer you the most creative photos, in the style you like.

Photo Session Info:
- Choosing the right outfits for your photos is important. Try each outfit on, look in the mirror, and ask others advise because your favorite outfit may not be the most flattering.
- Avoid patterns and stripes- they make you appear heavier, solids are best.
- Bring in a variety of colors and styles.
- Black is back and always looks great!
- All white is good for headshots, but remember long sleeves look best.
- If you choose sleeveless or spaghetti straps bring in a sweater or wrap to cover arms.
You’ll be happy with your photos if you follow these simple rules.
Accessories add to the photos. Bring hats, scarves, jewelry, belts, purses, shoes, boots, sunglasses, and anything to personalize your outfits. Or choose from our collection of accessories.
Personal props show the real you. Some popular choices are: Sports equipment, musical instruments, dance wear, surf/skate boards, swim team, hobbies, collectables, posters, and books. Remember to bring in all the gear head-to-toe! Ex: (Football helmut, shoes, uniform, shoulder pads)

Preparing for your session:
We recommend makeup for the girls and a clean shave for guys. No sunburns or chipped nail polish! Your hairstyle is part of your style, so don’t make any changes you might not like.
Arrange your outfits. Group them together on hangers so they won’t arrive wrinkled. Bring all accessories in a separate bag.
Arrive on time and plan to have tons of FUN!
Many Seniors want beach, location, pool photos or photos with their horse. Ask about our Extended Session that includes locations.
