27 Tips For Great Senior Pictures | Part 3



Get as much sleep as possible the night before the session. You might be tempted to stay up and make last minute changes or worry about the pimple on your face, but RELAX. The more rest you get, the better session you will have. Also, you don’t want to look tired for your session!

26. Puffy Eyes?

If you have a morning session, you can apply a cold compress to your eyes for a few minutes before applying makeup. This will reduce puffiness.

27. Don’t Skip a Meal

You and anyone accompanying you to the session need to EAT beforehand!!! You don’t want to be hangry during your session. If you don’t want to eat a full meal, bring snacks and some water. (Especially if it is hot outside!)



Bonus Tips!

28. Posing

Don’t worry about coming up with your own posing! Your photographer will be well versed in what makes you look AWESOME! Just remember to relax and have fun!!


29. Bring Props

I love to add props into my client’s sessions to make it more personal! But, make sure to tell your photographer what props you would like to use before the session, so they can plan accordingly. Props can include: fresh flowers/flower crown, vintage chairs or couches, class ring, etc.
