Senior Pictures are a BIG deal! It’s normal to have questions, but I’ve got your back! Today on the blog, I’m sharing three tips for your senior pictures that might surprise you! But I promise, if you follow these tips your senior photos will turn out SO much better!

No Fake Tans

I know that seniors love looking tan, but when you use self tanner or get a professional spray tan it doesn’t appear even on camera. Even if you go to an amazing technician, who knows how to properly apply professional spray tan, it’s best to skip it.

While it might look great in person, the camera is designed to pick up every shadow and highlight and so it often looks splotchy and orange in photos – even if in person it looks like the most natural tan ever and you got it professionally done!

So trust me – go with your natural skin tone and you’ll have a more even complexion in your photos!

Don’t forget the nails

In all of the chaos of prepping for your senior photos and life in general…don’t forget to pamper your nails!

During your shoot, a lot of the poses we do will have your hands close to your face or and in the frame, so make sure that your nails look just how you want! And, believe it or not, your hands will be a focal piece for your senior video as well!

Try to avoid any chipped polish or crazy patterns. French manicures, light/natural colors and even nails with no color at all photograph best!!

Trust the Pros

While we’re on the subject of prepping for the session, don’t forget to trust professional hair and makeup artists! Hair and Makeup photograph completely different on camera than they do in person – and professionals are trained to know the difference. Not to mention, they have all the best tricks up their sleeve to make your look weatherproof! By hiring a professional, you can rest assured that you’re gonna look your best!
