Our Senior Pictures Experience for Girls is admittedly… a little over the top — I’m not even going to deny it. The full scale production and style-team approach that goes into making this milestone extraordinary is meant to make this magical for everyone involved. Am I potentially compensating for my own lackluster high school senior pictures embarrassment circa 1991? — yes… yes I am. (ding, “bitter” party of one!) but my rationale is that every girl should have a time to feel beautiful, confident and celebrated. (and not have to wait until her wedding day to do it 😉 ) Below are four really common questions that we get asked related to 1. getting prepared 2. the actual photo shoot and 3. best practices. We thought it might be helpful to address them here featuring beautiful Sabrina from Skyline High School…. she is a total “Do” from beginning to end.
Question 1: Will you help me with posing?…I’m kind of nervous. Oh yeah, absolutely! Posing is supposed to fun… since we’re just having a good time — we’ll crank up the music, show you tons of different options from natural to model-y and just play. The brilliant part is you are able to relax, choose what you love and leave the awkward behind!
Question 2. Is there anything that I should avoid like patterns or bright colors? Um, NO. Your senior pictures are all about you and since you are the only one in the photo — you do you! Let all of your style choices be a reflection of who you are and what you love about your look right now.
Question 3: Do I really need professional hair & make-up? We always recommend that you let us pamper you with camera ready hair styling & “ready for your close-up” make-up. Our senior photo shoots are photographed just like a magazine-style model shoot (Karlie Kloss and Kendell Jenner get a style team… why shouldn’t you?) Whether you like to keep it natural or glam it up… perfect skin and shiny locks help you feel confident in front of the camera. (And for the things that hair & make-up don’t cover… Photoshop is a beautiful thing — we’ll take care of any imperfections in post production!)
Question 4: Can you help me with ideas and the overall look & feel of my shoot…what about locations? Of course! 99% of the senior pictures that you see in our portfolio are photographed here at our state of the art studio so we encourage you to browse the gallery and make a note of your favorites. Additionally, prior to your session, we’ll be sending you a Studio B Seniors Style & Prep Magazine to help to you get ready, coordinate props, and finalize your wardrobe so that this experience is uniquely You On Your Best Day. We are also a little bit Pinterest crazy around here, so we’re always updating those inspiration boards with fresh ideas.
Hope you found this helpful –if we missed something that you would love for us to answer… feel free to send us questions (chances are someone else has the same one that you do!) This is hands down our busiest time of year for senior pictures, so if you are ready to schedule Contact Us for current remaining session dates.
