Best senior pictures of girl with with vintage style and old Hollywood glamour in red Mod Cloth dress Best senior pictures of girl with vintage style and old Hollywood glamour in red Mod Cloth dressFor those of us that love vintage style senior pictures, old Hollywood glamour and a bold red lip — this is for you. Tahoma High School senior Jordan came in for her senior portraits session and I swear I felt myself get a little bit giddy.  From her ruby red heel to her Mod Cloth lace dress I was fully ready to channel my inner Annie Liebovitz (my celebrity photographer idol that photographs all of the Vanity Fair Magazine covers) We captured these timeless portraits in the studio but we also had a pretty amazing Seattle sunny day to work with as well.  I’m in love with this sneak peek that we shared on Instagram and here’s a behind the scenes of the entire senior photo shoot below.

Shout out to our style partner Sorella Salon for Jordan’s amazing camera ready hair styling and make-up application.  Absolutely gorgeous ladies.

  • Naomi

  • Lisa

    For a girl: college/university colors monogrammed towels
    For a boy: Gift card to their college/university bookstore for “necessities” when then get there!

  • Lalena Simmons

    The best gift to give a grad for graduating would be:
    1.CASH… you can never go wrong with cash
    2. A new or used car but don’t break the budget
    3. Gift cards they need gas they need food and you know all young adults love to eat fast food and entertainment movies are at the top of their list
    4. Luggage and noise cancelling headphones are never good ideas
    5. I was also told underwear and socks are practical gifts to give maybe not happily give but they are good gifts to give:)

  • Lalena Simmons

    Another awsome gift that will make ur Grad happy
    ****A Trip****to some awsome place
    I would suggest Disneyland:)

  • Micaela

    Glassybaby! And gift cards to grocery stores and cheap restaurants in the area of the college.

  • Courtney Kasel

    I think the best gift would be a photo collage of all of my favorite elementary/ middle/ high school memories!

  • teresa

    The best gift ever would be a Studio B photoshoot day!

  • Debbie Summers

    The best gift is a trip!! Hawaii would be great. Next best would be gift cards!❤️

  • Erica

    I got multiple Glassybabys in my school colors and those are some of my favorite gifts that I got for graduation! Also for girls, Tiffany is always an answer! Gift cards to school bookstores are great, and also pretty much any kind of gift card is a great option! Dorm necessities can come from just about anywhere-

  • Anil Singh-Molares

    The best gift is a trip, encompassing air travel, and then train travel on the other end. Europe a great destination, so they can go from city to city, country to country, sleep on the trains, meet a wide variety of people, run into different cultures and languages, and in short, start experiencing the world!

  • Rhonda

    A memory box from personalizationmall.com
    They have several different kinds you can personalize. Then maybe a necklace in one for a female and cuff links to go in one for a boy.

    I also love to give beautiful tea cups and add a note about their cup always being full of love, friendship, family, may their “cup” always run over.

    Barnes and nobles use to carry a book that had the cd “I hope you dance in it”…and then you can write personal messages on the pages.

    A photo album of favorite pictures throughout the years.

    Stationary, stamps and an address book…or an address book and calendar and then a card file with different cards for holidays and birthdays so they never forget to send a card on special days.

    A basket of things for the first week of college…the first day could be a wrapped picture frame of their family, so they are always with them. Day 2: treat yourself to something sweet and have a gift card to a local ice cream place. Day 3: some spirit wear such as a t-shirt with the school logo..to help fit in. Day 4: a target card for something you might have forgotten to pack, like tooth paste. Day 5: a Starbucks card…take your roommate to coffee to get to know each other. Day 6: a DVd, popcorn for a movie night. Day 7: sparkling cider to celebrate their first week on their own!!!

  • Marissa

    Realistic idea: A laptop. Can’t go wrong with a sleek, upgraded device to expedite work in every class.
    Slightly more far-fetched idea: A pet cat as a college companion. They’re pretty low maintenance, and they’d be great at facilitating de-stressing. (I speak from personal experience.)
    Another realistic idea: An academic grant. Nothing will make a high school grad happier than seeing a little student loan less debt in their future.
    Completely far-fetched idea: Fund a gap year. Let the student pick a country in which to live for 9-12 months between their senior year of high school and their freshman year of college, with the condition that they must perform regular community service, be it working at a wildlife rescue center or building a school, while they are abroad. 🙂

  • Nancy Thomas

    Both of my kids loved a tool kit that they received at high school graduation! The kit came along with a check, but they both say that they’ve used the tool kit many times during their college years. Practical, affordable and unique!

  • Nisha

    A Polaroid camera and paper for it, plus a display. In this day and age, people don’t print out a lot of pictures anymore, so this offers a quick, hassle free way to print pictures and giving a display with it (the one I’m buying for my dorm has push pins that hold strings, and the photos are hung on mini clothespins) makes it dorm decor within a gift.

  • Joanne

    The best gift a graduating senior could receive would be a number of things:
    1) Plane tickets to their destination of choice for a senior trip (such as Poland :))
    2) A huge collection of gift cards/certificate: Gift certificates/cards to University bookstores or Amazon so that they could pick up some textbooks or spirit gear for their classes and school as well as gift certificates/cards to food places around their new campus, and to some of their favorite clothing stores
    3) A new laptop and an assortment of materials they would need like a new bag, planner, and flash drive to make a college care package
    4) SparkGift where people can buy stocks for you, and you have an account. Eventually, this could be the best present.

Taylor is just a vision of Spring beauty isn’t she? We just love This Tahoma Senior’s pretty fuschia frock and right on-trend open toe wedge that she chose for her Senior Pictures photo shoot. And… special shout out to that mane of hair — holy hot rollers Batman… it’s fabulous. Shout out to Sorella Salon for styling her camera ready hair + make-up.

Don’t know how it happened but at some point, our Senior Pictures promo shoot began to look like an episode of the Bachelor.  Let me explain.  Senior Pictures in Seattle is a big deal! Since Studio B Portraits is celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary… we wanted to take our Class of 2017 Summer Advertising Campaign to the next level with this huge Vanity Fair Magazine styled photo shoot at the Triple XXX Drive In. The goal was really simple — when someone asks “Where should I go for the Best Senior Pictures in Seattle” — we just wanted Studio B to be part of the conversation.

We’re one of the very few studios that photographs as many guys as we do girls for senior pictures so it was important that our model team prominently represent for the fellas but with 3 gentlemen and 15 ladies on this shoot…it quickly became clear that maybe we could start handing out roses for a new “teen version” of the popular ABC show. 🙂  Kidding — there was absolutely NO drama and zero tears… just fun all the way around. The models were such good sports as I paired them up as a “faux couple” only to break them up and re-couple again.  My guess is that their social media accounts are going to be very confusing for their friends, heehee) But the pictures were amazing so here we go! In addition to the shoot, we also interviewed the Class of 2017 models and created this super cool, extended version of our behind the scenes coverage from the shoot.

To see MORE senior pictures you can check out our SENIOR PORTFOLIO or to schedule SENIOR PICTURES for Summer just CONTACT US.  We have a ton of new posts on our Instagram and Facebook accounts each day, so please get social with us…we’d love to hear from you!


Senior Pictures Seattle featuring vintage car and prom dresses
Seriously could not be any more excited!  There really isn’t any better way to announce that we’re NOW BOOKING SUMMER SESSIONS than introducing our Class of 2017 Studio B Seniors Model Brand Ambassador Team (go ahead and try to say that 10 times fast!)

Each of these fabulously photogenic teens was chosen to represent our studio on behalf of their schools and this is hands down the biggest photo shoot we’ve ever pulled off. We wanted you to get a little taste of the crazy that was this day (because holy smokes it was cold).  We’ll be bringing you alot more but for now… enjoy this little teaser…
