How to Prepare for Your Senior Pictures, For Guys! | Edmond Senior Photographer

January 17, 2022

Class of 2022 Senior Boys: I know those thoughts running through your heads right before your senior session. “What the heck should I wear?” “What if I have a huge blemish the day of my session?” “What do I need to bring?” “Do brown shoes go with a black belt?”

That’s why I strive to offer the ultimate senior session prep resources for my senior guys too! I know that you can be just as nervous as the girls when it comes to looking good in your senior pictures, so here’s a post just for you to help you look your best on the day of your session and to make the day as stress free as possible.

Hair Do’s and Don’ts

Get your hair trimmed about a week before your session. This will give it time to grown in just a bit. For longer hair, make sure it will stay back out of your eyes for your senior photos.

DO NOT make any drastic changes to your hair right before your senior session. Now is not the time to try out a funky hair color or completely shave your head.

Come to your session clean shaven. If you have facial hair that your mom really doesn’t like, do her a favor and shave it just for your senior photos. Trust me, it will grow back!

What if I have a breakout right before my session?

Don’t worry about breakouts. Wash and moisturize your face before your session and let me worry about the breakout in post processing. Definitely resist the urge to pick at your face. This will just irritate your skin and make it worse.

Mindset: relax and have fun! This is one of the things that will help your day be more enjoyable! Come in with a positive attitude and just enjoy the day!

Make sure clothes are ironed and wrinkle free. Bring them on a hanger, not shoved in a gym bag, (Yes, I have had clients with their clothes completely wrinkled wadded up in their bag). Wrinkles are not something I fix in photoshop after the fact.

Avoid chapped lips! Use chapstick for a few days leading up to your session. Drinking plenty of water will help with this as well.

If you plan to bring your car along for some pictures, make sure it is nice and clean before arriving to your session. Make those wheels really shine and you might even bring along some window cleaner for any last minute touchups.
