As you are preparing to leave high school and start the next chapter of your life you will want to have some great photos to remember your senior year. I know you guys are wondering how to look your best in your senior portraits.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Right Outfit - You should feel confident and comfortable in all the outfits you choose. Make sure it is appropriate for the setting as well. For example, if you're planning on taking your photos outdoors at a beach, choose something beachy, but nice, shorts and a nice clean simple T-shirt.
  2. Haircut - A fresh haircut can make a big difference in your overall appearance. and confidence. This is not the time to try something new. If you don't like it, it will show in your photos.
  3. Skin Care - Skin care is not just for the ladies. A clear, healthy complexion will make you look your best in your photos. Washing your face twice a day and using a moisturizer is highly recommended.
  4. Smile - The best accessory you can wear in your senior photos is a smile. Relax and be yourself. Don't worry we will get some with not-so-big smiles, but everyone knows, Grandma wants to see that smile.
