  Hints and Tips for your Senior Portrait Session

Whether you hire me or work with another photographer, I want to help you have the best Senior Portraits possible.  Over the next few weeks, I will include you in on a few things I tell my own clients.

The first tip is easy: GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE!  Yes, I did kind of scream this at you!  It really is important.  There's nothing like yawns, dull skin and and dark circles under your eyes to wreck the look of a bright-eyed High School Senior!

Come to your session with an open mind and the attitude that you're ready for fun! Your experience with Memories in Time Photography is going to be FANTABULOUS (I don't know if that's actually a word, but I use it, so I guess it is!)  Personally, I think I'm fun to be around, and since I direct you on how to pose, you won't have to worry about how you're going to look (the more awkward and uncomfortable you feel, the better the shot!).

There's no one in the world that has your style, so play it up. Bring variety.  If we plan on photographing 3 different outfits, don't have them be 3 pairs of jeans and 3 t-shirts!  For guys, you might want to bring a pair of khaki's and a nice button-down.  For ladies, think dresses, leggings, jeans, etc.  Just bring clothes that you are comfortable in and makes you feel AMAZING!  Are you in an activity? whether it's school sports, speech or something outside of the realms of school, bring your uniform and your props!

Whatever you wear, one thing is important: make sure all of your items fit - not too tight, not too loose.  Check to make sure that every item is clean, pressed and in good condition.  Nothing can wreck your look faster that clothes that are dirty, wrinkled, or that don't fit right.
