Our 3 Best “Keep It Casual” Tips for Boys Senior Pictures
Casual and comfortable – the two words that make Moms of senior boys scratch their heads when it comes to making wardrobe selections that are also picture perfect for their senior portraits.
We thought it would be helpful to give you a cheat sheet about this portrait style. (And show you 2017 Senior Gabe who got it just right!)
Focus on fit. Make sure the sizing is on point. A good fit goes a long way in highlighting your best features.
Press The Point: Clothing of every style looks a little more pulled together when it’s wrinkle free.
Mix it Up: Vary the textures, patterns and necklines of the shirts and change up the color of the pants. Denim in blue, black or khaki will give you a lot of freedom to mix ‘n match.
Oh and here’s a bonus tip! Consider bringing coats, caps, sunglasses or props that can easily be put on and then taken off with ease. These additions fit with the comfortable and casual theme plus personalize the overall look.
“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth” Words of wisdom from fighter Mike Tyson. Might be one of my favorite quotes ever by the way and so very true on this shoot day! Our proverbial one-two punch was not to the face on the day of our Masud Family portrait however, but rather a Seattle right hook of massive rain!
I know what you are thinking “What, rain? Seattle? – shocking” But hear me out… we do have some very pretty winter days that while cold…. are still dry and gorgeous. Today was not one of those days. Soooo… Plan B was put in motion… and by plan B, I really mean Studio B — we simply did the entire shoot inside our Issaquah studio and it could not have been any more perfect. (aka warm, dry and wildly photogenic)
Shout out to Mom Mikaela for her A+ styling of all her fellas and one delicious little princess. The textures, the layering, the color coordination…just exceptional. (And inspiring for all of the Mom’s looking for wardrobe ideas for their own family pictures!)
It has been all about the twins for the Class of 2017 and meeting Jackie and Nikki had us stepping up our game big time. From high heels to hurdles our senior pictures shoot with these Issaquah High School track sensations was phenomenal.
Quick behind the scenes anecdote… I was literally laying on my back while the girls were sprinting, stretching and doing amazing things with their athletic gifts for my camera but let’s be clear that I wasn’t actually doing anything athletic myself. A little twist here, a little deep knee bend and squat there…Next day? SO sore! It’s sad on more levels than I care to mention. Haha!
