What to Wear to Your Senior Portraits

August 3, 2017

At Photography by Jodi Lynn & Co, we know choosing what you wear to your Senior Session is kind of a big deal. After all you are going to be looking at these photos for years to come. And even if you don’t care about fashion, we know you’ll want to look great at your Arizona senior portraits! These portraits are all about YOU. They are supposed to highlight your personality, interests, and style at this point in your life. So, here are some tips and tricks that can help you look your best at your senior photo shoot.

Outfit Tips for Your Senior Photo Shoot

Tip 1:

 Incorporating your own sense of fashion is important, but wearing something that you aren’t going to regret is important as well. Wearing neutral colors like beige, ivory, grey, black, or blue, always photograph well and allow the attention to go back to where it is supposed to be – on you! If you want to add more color to compliment the background you can always add fun accessories like colorful shoes, or a bold necklace.

Tip #2:

These are once in a lifetime images. You’re not going to have another senior portrait session. For all our senior sessions, you can have up to 3 outfit changes. So, our suggestion is to bring one outfit that is more formal. You don’t have to wear a suit and tie or ball gown but just think of your “Sunday’s best” and wear a pretty dress or nice pair of slacks. A formal outfit is perfect for mixing it up from your everyday wear and adds a little extra glam to your senior photography session that mom and dad will love!

Tip #3:

Be comfortable! This is probably the most important tip we have for you. Don’t go shopping and pick something you’re not sure about. If you look in the mirror, and you don’t think it works for you, don’t bring it. These photos are about capturing you. You should feel relaxed and comfortable in what you chose to wear. Especially since you’ll be sitting on the ground, possibly climbing on things, jumping, and more during your senior shoot!
