How to Prepare for Your Senior Session

February 03, 2020  •  1 Comment

 

Now that you’ve booked your session, we have a few tips for you to help you get ready for your close up. Follow these guidelines the weeks leading up to your session and we’ll take care of the rest!

 

  • Choose four to six outfits to wear during your session and lay them out so they are ready to go. Make sure they are clean and wrinkle-free. 

 

  • Also, don’t forget to pack any accessories you’ll want for each outfit – jewelry, scarves, headbands, etc. Bring matching socks/tights, and shoes for each outfit if one pair won’t go along with all of them.

 

  • While you’re at it, if you plan on bringing any props – your ballet shoes, favorite book, softball gear, etc. – go ahead and lay that out as well. If you are going to bring your car to the session and want it to be in photos with you, be sure to wash it the night before/day of your session.

  • Get a good night’s rest the night before so you can look well rested for your session.

 

  • Get your hair cut about one to two weeks prior to your session. Don’t drastically change it from your normal style in case you don’t like it. Have the hair stylist show you some easy styles you can do during outfit changes to switch it up a bit. 

 

  • Practice your makeup the week leading up to your session so you can get it just right the day of.  We strongly suggest you hire a professional makeup artist and hair stylist for your session.

  • If you wake up two days prior to your session, or the morning of, and acne has appeared on your face – don’t pick at it and make it worse while trying to get rid of it. Apply some makeup over the area (not too heavy) and leave it at that. I will be retouching all of your images, which includes blemish removal; so don’t even worry about it.

 

  • Get a manicure the day before or day of your session to ensure your nails look their best. Don’t forget that the color needs to match all of your outfits. For this reason, and to keep a clean appearance, we suggest going with the French manicure or just a clear coat of paint.

 

  • Stay away from self-tanning products.  You are better off showing off your natural skin color than taking a risk of something going wrong with self tanners.  Also, be mindful of any tan lines you may have.  If they are dark and obvious, such as on shoulders, wear clothing that conceals the lines.
