You all know the standard senior photo poses. Leaned against a tree, close up of your face and of course near water. Everyone has these kinds of pictures and yes they are gorgeous! But… what if I told you there are some poses you didn’t even know you needed? I‘m here to highlight the poses that most seniors don’t think of and honestly they usually feel a little silly doing. But then when they look at the end result the pictures are breathtaking. So, if you trust me… keep reading then see if some of these poses are something you’d want for you senior picture experience!
1. In the water: Most people get their pictures taken by the water. Water is so timeless and makes any picture look amazing. It sparkles, creates movement and compliments any outfit choice you pick. But have you ever thought of taking a picture in the water? It might seem crazy but it takes water pictures to the next level. You have to be ok with your outfits getting wet so it’s best to take these pictures last. And you have to be relaxed and embrace the weirdness of it. Some girls are uncomfortable in the water and that’s totally ok but if you’re willing to try… you won’t be disappointed. Some girls decide to just stand in the water, some girls decide to sit by it and put their feet in. I’ve had some girls even go as far as to lay in the water. No matter your comfort level, this is one pose idea I would definitely recommend.
2. Laying down… backwards: Now hear me out on this… I’m sure you’re saying what the heck are you talking about? I’m talking about pictures with you laying down and I’m photographing your face upside down. Weird right? But trust me when I say these pictures turn out beautifully. Every time I tell clients I want to take pictures like this they all kind of giggle. They aren’t sure what to think but it never fails that these are pictures that are always ordered. I like these pictures because they’re so unique, beautiful and timeless. All characteristics you want in your senior pictures wrapped into one photograph. So if you’re getting your senior pictures done and I’m taking your pictures upside down, don’t fret! You’ll be so happy with the result.
3. Mother, Daughter: Here is the thing… senior pictures are about you and I definitely want to highlight all you’ve accomplished on this day. But what if I said, something you’ll definitely want that you probably haven’t thought of is mother, daughter pictures. Your mom has been the person for you since the day you were born. She’s your biggest cheerleader, greatest advocate and the person who loves you the most. Document that through mother, daughter portraits. Trust me, these pictures are something you will hold onto and treasure forever. Your mom will also treasure those pictures forever. When you book with me, all VIP seniors get a complimentary mother, daughter portrait session scheduled at a later date. Take advantage of that and embrace the day with your mother. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.
