I get a lot of seniors who come to me nervous about their session day. Not about the pictures, but more of the preparation for the day. They ask me, “What if I forget something?!” Let’s take a little deeper look at this list to help ease your mind while you get ready for your big senior portrait experience!
#1. Put each full outfit on ONE single hanger. This helps you see your clothes put together as whole collections instead of just pieces. It also helps you to see if you have a variety of outfits or if they are all really similar. This will also help you see if you’re missing anything on each outfit. Don’t forget to pair your shoes and undergarments for each outfits. It’s not fun to put on an outfit in the middle of the session and realize you don’t have the correct bra for that shirt! Once you have your final outfits decided on, make sure all clothes are fully ironed and ready to go.
#2. Start a senior session Pinterest board and include ideas for makeup and hair inspiration. When you book with Brandi Price Photography, you get professional hair and makeup with Gaby of Gaby Makeup Artistry. Coming with some inspirations photos will help you to work together to get the exact look you are wanting for your senior photos.
#3. Pair your accessories with each outfit. This is one of the most forgotten items for session day. Include a Ziploc bag of accessory pouch for EACH outfit so you know what jewelry goes with each different outfit. *Pro tip: several of my past senior clients have come with their accessories for each outfit in their own ziploc bag and that bag is attached to the hanger of the outfit it goes with.
#BONUS: Check out this post for your “Day of Senior Photos Checklist!” It has an actual checklist you can save to your phone so you don’t forget anything on the day of your session!
