start with the clothes
Wearing an outfit that shows off your personality but also looks like it was picked out by a professional helps give your senior pictures that bold statement you’re searching for. Good thing for you, I have client wardrobe consultation times with all of my VIP seniors. I come to your house, look at your closet, really get to know your personality and help pick outfits that are you but are also unique. I tell my seniors to be sure they have a variety of outfits. A formal dress, something casual and laid back, bring along a funky pair of shoes or even a head turning accessory. Any of those items bring authenticity but can also be striking. There is also the client closet! I have a few amazing dresses at the studio that you have access to for your senior pictures. What is our most popular and unique you may ask? The parachute dress. If you really need senior pictures that are extravagant and absolutely stunning, you need the parachute dress. I have a purple, pink or ombré dress for outside locations and an amazing emerald green satin dress for the studio. Which dress would you go for? I’m all in on the green dress ☺️
Bring a friend
Another part of making senior pictures unique is to bring along a friend. It can be anyone! Remember and celebrate the people who are special to you. Have fun together during your senior pictures and you’ll just come to find how unique your senior pictures turn out. My absolute favorite is when furry friends join the session. I find my clients really relax, and their true self comes shining out when their furry friends are around. Not many people will have adorable puppies and kittens in their senior pictures, so not only is it an awesome picture but it’s unique and exciting.
Props make senior pictures really exciting! People get really creative with props and I am always so happy to have some fun with the items they bring. Whether it’s balloons, your cap and gown, your medals from your athletic achievements or confetti I can always do something with what you bring and your pictures really stand out. I remember one of my clients brought her baby pictures which I thought was not only adorable but so creative. Bringing items that are important to you help your pictures stand out in so many ways. The authentic smile that will come through in those pictures is priceless. Having items that you are passionate about and bring you joy will show through in your pictures.
Have some fun outside
One of the best ways to have unique and striking pictures is to use what nature has to offer. When you are on location you are usually outside and the surroundings are gorgeous. If you’re at Red Daisy Farm, there is a water area. Let’s get in the water, splash in the water or better yet, some of my clients lay down in the water. Talk about unique and bold! If you see a patch of flowers, let’s frolic through them. Have fun, twirl around, laugh, enjoy where you are. That’s how you get unique pictures that everyone will definitely remember.
You can have unique, striking and head turning senior pictures! Getting pictures like these is fun, easy and memorable. I love when seniors want pictures that are different than the “typical” senior picture and you will cherish these pictures forever. So what do you think?
