Senior Portrait Style Guide Part 1, For the Ladies

Senior portraits are a big deal. I know, I remember stressing to the point of tears before my own session.

It wasn’t pretty.

Thankfully it all ended up going great, and I was more than pleased with my photos. What I do wish was that I had some guidance as far as my outfit changes went. First, I had no idea I was allowed to change my clothes! Second, I was horribly unprepared.

I want to help every student preparing for the coming of age Senior Portrait Session feel comfortable in the process and how they look.

Ladies first!
