Photo Styling Tips and Tricks for Seniors

All good portrait sessions take preparation. Here are a few quick tips for making sure your senior portraits look great.

First of all make sure you have had a good night’s sleep. Everyone looks and feels better when they are well rested and this shows through in the final images. Also try to schedule the shoot for a less stressful day is recommended so everyone will be in a better mood and better images will result.

If you have any hobbies or interests they can look great when incorporated into your senior portrait session. This can even involve shooting at locations unique to your hobbies and interests.

Wardrobe wise bringing cloth that you usually dress in will look best. Try to avoid large logos and distracting patterns, since they will draw attention to your clothing instead of your face. Lastly bring a combination of both lights and darks and a combination of formal and casual is recommended.
