What Should I Wear? - Senior Session Girl

‘What should I wear?’ is one of the most common questions from people getting their picture taken. I’ve put together an example wardrobe a senior girl could bring along. I’ve selected a casual look, a business-casual look, a summery look, a dressier look, and, finally, a fancy dress. If you have any school uniforms, I would definitely bring those as well, along with any equipment/props! Below are some other helpful tips.

Keep it simple. Bring basic, timeless pieces. I wouldn’t get too carried away with the clothes. The focus should be on you, not what your wearing. One super trendy outfit is fine, but remember that trends change, but the classic pieces will always be around.

Bring fun accessories. Accessories are a great way to bring some fun into the picture, but not overpower the photo. Don’t bring all crazy accessories, though, make sure you have some basic shoes and jewelry, too.

It’s better to bring too much. I’d rather have you show up with a suitcase of options that we could pick from, rather than bring three outfits that might not work as well.

No labels. Only bring shirts that do not have writing on them. Just trust me on this one. In five years, you will not want ‘American Eagle’ or ‘Cutie’ written in huge letters on your shirt. It’s distracting. People will be reading your shirt, rather than looking at you.

Bring things that are particular to YOU! Brings items, clothes, props, etc. that fit your personality. If you love shoes, bring a bunch of pairs and we could have you sitting among them! If you have a beloved pet, we could get some pictures with him or her! The possibilities are endless!
