It's time to take your high school senior photos and you're wondering what should I wear? Am I supposed to bring anything? What do I need to know? These are questions you probably have as you start planning for your senior session. Photographers get asked these questions all the time.
The good news is the senior photos that are done today are super fun, full of personality and all about you. Let me tell you…senior photos have come a long way since mine were taken where you went to a studio for a brief amount of time. The photographer had a cheesy background of a dreamy meadow, a wagon wheel or some sort of stream that you were posed in front of and if you were lucky they might suggest putting you in something billowy. Ok hopefully you didn't have to wear anything billowy but I can assure you the experience was far from what it is today. We're not voting for Pedro here.
I'm helping a photographer friend with an upcoming senior session and while the questions were being asked I decided to jot my suggestions down. Maybe these tips will help put your mind at ease when you go thru the "What am I supposed to wear" "What do I need to know?" and "Should I bring anything" questions.
