High School Senior Photography

–A Checklist–

Your high school senior photography shoot is a once-in-a-lifetime event. It’s important to prepare so your pictures will look their absolute best.
I’ve taken the guesswork out of it and provided you a simple checklist below:


1.) Outfit: Most high school senior girls will choose to wear one casual outfit, one formal or “edgey” outfit and a sports/hobby-related outfit. My advice: Avoid neon colors, and make sure to wear something you’re at least semi-comfortable in. Wide and flowing shirts and dresses, although they look pretty, can often make you appear bigger than you are. Form-fitting outfits generally look a little better in photographs. At the end of the day, though, it’s your photo shoot, and your choice.

2.) Accessories: Feel free to accessorize with hats, scarves, jewelry, boots, heels, belts etc… Feel free to bring any sports or hobby related items we can use as props in your pictures. You can even bring your car!

3.) Makeup: Ultimately, how much you use and what you use is up to you. However, in most pictures heavy eye shadow does not look great; it often “overshadows” the eye. Conceal what needs concealed and enhance what needs enhanced. Lipstick that matches outfits can provide a neat look etc…

4.) Rest: Make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before the shoot. This is obvious, but a lack of sleep will contribute to pictures that make you look “tired” and “uninterested,” which is generally a bad thing.


1.) Outfit: Most guys choose a casual outfit, a formal/stylish outfit and a sports/hobby-related-outfit. Like the girls, avoid neon colors because they don’t look great when my lights hit them. Make sure you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing.

2.) Accessories: Feel free to bring guy-related jewely, belts, boots and any hobby or sport related props. A lot of guys will even bring their car/truck!

3.) Attitude: Most guys I work with generally don’t like having their picture taken. That’s fine, but after more than 13 years in business, every guy I’ve ever photographed has enjoyed the shoot and loved their senior pictures. So, just go into it with the right attitude, and we’ll get you some killer shots!
