Senior Portraits – Wardrobe Styling

What to Wear for Your Senior Portrait Session

There are a lot of factors that contribute to an amazing senior session and your outfit is one of them. I recommend bringing multiple outfits to your senior session, here are a few ideas to get you started.



Bring along an outfit that you simply love wearing. Not only will it let your unique personality and style shine through but it will also make you feel comfortable and confident during your senior session.



Choose an outfit that is timeless. Keep it simple by choosing safe, solid colors or muted patterns. Basically, bring an outfit that isn't trendy and won't look out of style when looking back at your photos in years to come.



This is your chance to let your unique personality really shine through. What inspires you and gets you smiling? Who do you want to be? It's not always about the outfit but can also be about something that shows who YOU are and what interests you.



For your next outfit, simply adding in a few accessories such as a hat, scarf jacket or sunglasses will give you a completely different look. You can also choose to throw in a few props to add some interest to the shot.



Show some of your personal interests - be it a special pet, an activity such as hunting or fishing, a sport that is an integral part of your life at school, or if you are a musician, bring your instrument.
