Ohio, Seniors Fall vibes are upon us!
Now is the perfect time to book your Senior session.
High School is a fun yet stressful time.
That's exactly why I offer a stress-free Senior Session.
I am a natural light, Senior Portrait photographer based in Medina, County who is drawn to capturing photos that are natural, soft, emotional, yet a little moody.
Picking the right outfit is key.
Start with the clothes and outfits you already have! I know… there is excitement to buy a new outfit, but if it’s something you always grab and love, you’ll love your pictures even more!
If you want to go shopping, by all means, do it, I would never talk anyone out of shopping, I love shopping and most every other girl does too, so go for it!
Use these tips below as a guide when you are choosing and shopping for outfits!
Choose colors you love –don’t use the colors that are popular, if you don’t look good in them. If you don't look good in Mustard Yellow, then simply don’t wear it! You’ll hate your pictures, choose what you love!
Don’t get too much bulk – If you are already self-conscience don’t get bulky sweater, if you want bulky, chunky sweaters go for it, they are cute vibe. Just know ahead of time that extra bulk can and may not be your favorite when it comes to your fall senior pictures!
Use layers – I love layers in fall pictures, layers i.e. a blanket scarf, a hat or even an extra layer or clothing can be a simple addition i.e. a flannel.
Go long – if you are planning on wearing a dress, go long for the fall pictures. There is something seasonal about the full length of dress. Unless you are planning on wearing boots with a shorter dress. Otherwise a long dress with booties is whimsical for pictures
What looks good on you –forget the fashion trends of the past. Go with what looks 100% good on YOU! Not every style that is “fashionable” is meant for everyone.
Ask yourself this, do I LOVE love the outfit, will I ever wear it again, and this will tell you if it is the right outfit for your Senior fall photos.
Hair & Makeup Tips for Senior Pictures.
Preparing for your senior session is thinking about how you want your hair, makeup, and nails to look.
You have two options – set up an appointment with a professional, or do it yourself.
There are many benefits to letting the professionals help with your senior pictures:
They have experience in makeup application for photography.
They know how different makeup will appear in camera.
They have high quality products in every shade imaginable.
They know how to contour and choose colors that highlight your best features.
They’ll have you feeling confident, beautiful, and ready to start your session!
If you can’t afford to have both hair and makeup done, I then definitely recommend the makeup application. If neither is in your budget, below are some tips for doing them yourself!
Do not get a new cut, style, or color before your senior session!
Have your hair trimmed, and any color touched at least up a couple weeks before your session.
Eye and lip makeup should be applied slightly darker than normal, as Cameras do not pick up the contrast and definition our eyes see in person.
Avoid makeup that will create an unflattering shine.
Don’t go overboard with layers of heavy makeup. It’s hard to photograph cakey makeup.
Set foundation with translucent powder that reduces shine. Shine is hard to Photoshop.
Although you may not normally wear lipstick, I do recommend it for your session, even if it’s a shade close to your natural lip color.
Pastel eyeshadows tend to look washed out, so go for a medium or dark, rich tone. Browns and golds are safe.
Avoid heavy black eyeliner, which makes your eyes look smaller. Go with a thin layer of black or brown and blend well if you’re wearing eyeliner.
Avoid any makeup with glitter or shine. Matte makeup will photograph better!
