Nora's Senior Session | Lower town St. Paul

Picking out what you wear to your Senior Pictures photoshoot can be a daunting task, but when it comes down to it, a few simple guidelines can make it an easy task. 

1) Pick outfits that are complimentary to your surroundings.

Nora picked beautifully simple outfits that were versatile to many backgrounds. My favorites are neutral colors such as white, navy, and baby pink.  They are flattering for every skin tone.  I am constantly being asked "will pale colors make me look washed out?" and my answer is "NO NO NO" every-time.  Don't believe me? Just take a look through my website for proof ;). 

2) Wear 3-4 outfits for your senior shoot.

I know you probably have over 10 in your closet that you want to wear, but trust me in the end picking just a few outfits you love will leave you with the photos you will treasure forever. Also during a shoot that is only a couple hours long the hassle of changing several times will just cause unwanted stress that can really throw off your vibes.

3) Wear something flowy.

When you're not an everyday model, a photoshoot can seem a bit awkward. Wearing a dress you can twirl around or play with can make posing a lot easier and natural.  Plus, it gives you a place to put your hands! 

4) Wear something that is special to you.

In Nora's case she wore a figure skating costume along with her ice skates. Wearing something that represents something your passionate about can really make your shoot more personal and your photos more special to yourself. This could really be anything like a uniform, costume, medals, or it could even be an object that represents what your passionate about, used for a prop. Really brainstorm and find whats special to you.
