A Little Planning Goes a Long Way

You’ve got style, and you already know how to look your best—in your own way, every day. But your senior portrait session will take a little more planning than outfits for school or going out with friends.

Prestige Portrait sessions include a number of outfit changes, as well as close-up looks, full length, and everything in between. So be sure to wear complete outfits from head to to

Color and Texture

Have a little fun with layers and textures as you plan your session wardrobe. Flat fabrics and neutrals may sound like logical choices, but don’t limit yourself. Look around your closet for complimentary colors or shades of the same color to bring a lot of contrast and style to your look. Bring at least three complete outfits with you to your photo shoot. And pack another two or three for even more fun with variety.
