How to Prepare for Your Senior Portraits Photo Shoot
So you’ve booked a Senior Portraits with larue.photo. What can you do before hand to get the most out of your portrait session time? How can you prepare, so we can capture the best portraits of you that we can during your session?
Brainstorm Places with Special Significance to You
We want to tell your story from senior portrait session. And part your story are the places you love spending time. Is there a park with a fountain and ducks you like to feed? Your schools softball field? How about that old tire swing where you and your sweetie shared your first kiss?
I find though, that the senior portraits with the most personality are the one’s we create outdoors, on location, during golden hour, in a place that has special meaning to you. Those are the portraits that will be the most meaningful to you for years to come.
Get a Hair Cut 5-7 days before
You want to look your best for the photos we’ll create together. Getting your hair cut can make you look much nicer. And you know how you don’t like to way your new hair cut looks, because it’s still fresh and obviously new? Go get it cut a week or so before your photoshoot to give it time to look a bit more natural and lived in.
Bring an Outfit Change
By bringing 2-3 outfits with you, we will be able to deliver a more varied final product to you. Try to bring 1 formal outfit, 1 casual outfit, and 1 outfit which reflects your favorite hobby. These pieces of clothing reflect who you are in 3 different aspects of you life, and we want to capture each of those sides of your personality.
Think About Props You Can Bring
What are your hobbies? What are the tools you use for those hobbies? Bring those things and help visually tell the story of who you are, and what makes you unique. Here are a few suggestions:
- Seniors, Bring:
- Cap & Gown
- Suit & Tie or Dress
- Athletes, Bring:
- Your sports gear…no wait…your sports gear is filthy and smells awful. Mom knows. Wash it first. Or better yet, bring…

Bring Some Music to Listen to
Feel free to put together a playlist of your favorite songs to play during the shoot. I find that hearing familiar music can be comforting, and can help relax you if you’re feeling nervous about being photographed. These shoots are meant to be fun, and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible so that I’m able to capture the true, inner you. We all have plenty of pictures of ourselves giving that same practiced smile. You know, the one that you put on after hearing “Say Cheese!” That’s not what I’m after. I want to capture the candid moments that show you as you truly are. So gather your favorite tunes, and get ready for a fun photoshoot with larue.photo.
