New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Senior Portrait Photographer
Capturing a senior in High School with portrait photography is an important rite of passage. They are moving into another important phase of their life. And most will be in the best shape of their lives – before the Freshman 15 get added on! lol
I love to create images that show who the senior really is and what they enjoy!
Maddie has been in front of my camera for several years as a dancer. It was nice to see her express herself in a different environment.
Are you a senior or know of one that is ready for some senior portraits? Have them reach out to me to find out more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908.995.7273.
I know you see a lot of dancers and theater portraits from me – it’s what I specialize in. But I also enjoy other types of portrait photography including senior portraits! Anthony came to me from a friend of his who’s a dancer so that counts!
Anthony was a pleasure to work with and a very polite young man
Anthony also plays High School lacrosse so I had a little fun creating some unique images for him. More on these with be shared in another blog post!
Ready for me to create some great memorable images for you or a senior you know? We can create the images in my studio, on location someplace special or both! Contact me at dave2dabourphoto.com or 908.995.7273 for more information
Now that you’ve booked your session, we have a few tips for you to help you get ready for your close up. Follow these guidelines the weeks leading up to your session and we’ll take care of the rest!
Choose two to three outfits to wear during your session and lay them out so they are ready to go. Make sure they are clean and wrinkle-free.
Also, don’t forget to pack any accessories you’ll want for each outfit – jewelry, scarves, headbands, etc. Bring matching socks/tights, and shoes for each outfit if one pair won’t go along with all of them.
While you’re at it, if you plan on bringing any props – your ballet shoes, favorite book, softball gear, etc. – go ahead and lay that out as well. If you are going to bring your car to the session and want it to be in photos with you, be sure to wash it the night before/day of your session.
Get a good night’s rest the night before so you can look well rested for your session.
Get your hair cut about one to two weeks prior to your session. Don’t drastically change it from your normal style in case you don’t like it. Have the hair stylist show you some easy styles you can do during outfit changes to switch it up a bit.
Practice your makeup the week leading up to your session so you can get it just right the day of. We do offer professional makeup artist services with several of our packages. This is something we strongly suggest you look into for your session.
If you wake up two days prior to your session, or the morning of, and acne has appeared on your face – don’t pick at it and make it worse while trying to get rid of it. Apply some makeup over the area (not too heavy) and leave it at that. We offer basic retouching, which includes blemish removal; so don’t even worry about it.
Get a manicure the day before or day of your session to ensure your nails look their best. Don’t forget that the color needs to match all of your outfits. For this reason, and to keep a clean appearance, we suggest going with the French manicure or just a clear coat of paint.
Practice a nice natural smile and cute poses in a mirror or send us over some things we can talk to you about that will help you relax – your favorite movie, your boyfriend, etc.
If you are doing a session with your BFF or BF, don’t forget to coordinate an outfit with them so you guys don’t clash.
