We are busy meeting with seniors, talking about senior portraits and photographing senior portrait sessions this time of year. The choice and tastes amoung seniors are varied but one thing that always stands out -- they want and need to express themselves at this very important time in their lives. If you're planning a photo session here's a list of things to consider:
1. location! Most seniors want outdoor sessions, but where outdoors? We're known for our unexpected and interesting location sessions, so let us know if you want to try something different, chances are we've got some great spots on our list.
2. hair + makeup! We strongly encourage our senior girls to add the Hair + Makeup option to their session. For only $100 you can feel like you've just stepped out of dressing room at the movie studio! We use some of the best sylists in Dallas and not only is it a big boost to your confidence, but it can really add depth and interest to your portraits.
3. clothing! We've been busy putting together some great Pinterest boards and online tools for you to use in choosing your outfits. We tend to do a fashion-style shoot and the clothing (no matter how casual it is) reveals so much about your personality. Bring mom's favorite outfit but don't forget to add the touches that make you feel like YOU.
4. timing! We like late afternoon shooting and the weather is great during April and May -- but don't assume that our calendar is wide open. It's a busy time for us, too, so call a couple of weeks in advance.
Our studio is in Addison so we photograph kids from lots of different schools -- last week we had Morgan from J.J. Pearce, Hallie from Plano East and Alyssa from Coppell High School -- and we'd love to meet with you and talk over YOUR ideas. Stay tuned for our new seniors website --scheduled to launch in about two weeks.
