It’s finally here! It’s the day of your senior pictures! You have been planning your outfits, thinking about locations and poses, and all the things for weeks! Now, to help your day run smoothly and keep the stress minimal I have created the perfect check list for the day of your senior photos.
Shave: I know this seems a little weird, but my camera will pick up even the smallest amount of stubble. Guys, shave your face, unless of course you want the scruffy look. Girls, shave your legs and underarms, especially if you will be wearing tank tops or sleeveless tops.
Drink plenty of water. You should be doing this the week leading up to your session to help with radiant skin, but definitely make sure you drink plenty of water the day of your session. You want to be well hydrated and ready to rock your session!
Put on some chapstick or lip balm first thing in the morning. There is nothing worse in pictures than chapped lips and chapped lips are not something that is photoshopped out later.
EAT! Please don’t skip out on eating on the day of your session. You will need energy to get through the long day. Think healthy, fresh foods.
Make sure you have the following when you arrive for hair and makeup:
All clothes, ironed and wrinkle free hanging on hangers.
Have all jewelry in plastics bags and marked according to which outfit they go with. It works out really well if you can hang a ziplock bag with each set of jewelry on the hanger with the outfit it goes with.
Shoes for each outfit. Make sure you also have the correct type of socks for each pair of shoes. If all of your shoes are uncomfortable to walk in, through in some slides to put on as we walk to each location.
Undergarments. Make sure you have the correct type of bra for each outfit. It should be a neutral color and the straps should not be seen.
Snack and water bottle. It’s never fun to finally get out to your session and then be hangry! Bring along a bottle of water and small snack just in case.
Any props you would like to incorporate into your session. The most popular props that my seniors bring are sports gear and equipment, pets, instruments, and college t-shirts.
Here is a check list for you to save and check off on the day of your session.
