Bring something simple for headshots!!!! It can be a sweater that matches your eye color, or anything not too distracting so we can create beautiful color harmony within the image and keeps the attention on your gorgeous eyes!

headshots of Miss Teen KY Emma Grace

I love it when a senior brings something that matches their eye color! I always shoot head shots at my senior photo sessions so keep this in mind. It’s a great way to show off those baby blues, greens, or browns.

It’s the question I get asked most often and for good reason, you’ve been waiting years for this photographic milestone!  

Here’s the formula I like to stick to:  

Something old (vintage), something new (modern and beautiful), something borrowed (from your mom, dad or grandmas closet) and something blue (or whatever color your eyes are).

Something old . . . not everyone can fit into or wants to wear their grandmother’s wedding dress, but how cute when they do!  

Look around and ask your parents or grandparents if they have a unique item we could use for an editorial senior portrait, vintage coats, furs, U.S. navy pants, etc.  It could be your Dad’s letterman jacket, or your Dad’s leather jacket. Here are some examples: 

1970’s leather

U.S.

navy

pants

More old leather . . . 

 

Check back soon for Part 2. Something new . . .

Her beauty is beyond compare, with flaming locks of auburn hair, with ivory skin and eyes of emerald green . . . sharing my favorite series from Lindsey’s Senior Session.  These were shot at my studio with window light and a reflector.  With Lindsey, we knew we wanted to emphasize her beautiful skin with blush tones in her dress and background. Color Harmony is always dreamy.

Rachel Ratliff is . . .

a country girl.

Don’t.

Mess.

With.

Her.

We wanted to show her love of hunting, riding, being outdoors, Eastern Kentucky and more.

But she knows how to have fun.

Shooting in GORGEOUS LIGHT is a must.


And we had to shoot studio as well because all seniors get to do it ALL at my studio.

We all wanted to be Rachel from “Friends”  .  .  .  Wearing overalls automatically takes me back to the 90’s.  And let’s be certain, 90’s fashion was way more hip than the 80’s.   Check out some of my favorite shots from this series of McCall Davis wearing overalls.

XOXO

Sisters, friends, athletes, country girls, models . . .those are just a few adjectives used to  describe these two.  They wanted their senior session to reveal things they loved like fashion, America, and each other.

Edgy Editorial images are a must at the studio!  We always shoot a few that look like they could be in a magazine spread!

And we can’t forget about prom!

Here’s what Sierra had to say about her photo shoot.

Meet Alyssa, she’s one of a kind.   She wanted her senior pictures to reflect just that. She wanted to show her classy side, her sassy side, her spunk, her love of fashion, independence, and I wanted to show off her beauty.  Here’s what we came up with!

Fashion is a statement, say something important. Savannah wanted her senior portraits to reflect her love of fashion, mixing high-end brands with vintage pieces, her car,  and her mom.
