What to Bring to Your Senior Portraits
Senior portrait sessions are a significant milestone, capturing the essence of who you are during this pivotal stage of your life. It's a time to showcase your unique personality, style, and accomplishments. To ensure a successful and memorable senior portrait session, careful planning and preparation are essential. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of what to bring to your senior portraits, helping you make the most of this special opportunity.
Props and Personal Items to bring to senior portraits
INTERESTS & HOBBIES
To make your senior portraits truly special and representative of who you are, consider bringing props that highlight your interests and hobbies. If your senior participates in any extracurricular activities or anything outside of school bring something along that symbolizes that. If you're a sports enthusiast, bring along your sports equipment or jersey to incorporate that passion into your photos. For music lovers, musical instruments can make for striking and meaningful props. We have awesome photos of seniors with things that show the extracurricular activity they love. They can look back on these things years later and be reminded of the activities they love so much at that time in life.
Senior portraits are an ideal opportunity to incorporate sentimental items that hold deep meaning to you. Family heirlooms such as a piece of jewelry or a cherished accessory can add a personal touch to your portraits. Childhood memorabilia, such as a favorite toy or book, can evoke nostalgia and create a connection between your past and present selves.
LETTERMAN'S JACKET & CLASS RING
Letterman jackets and class rings are expensive! These typically are not used a lot for some students after high school. We want to help capture your kid with these, so when they don’t get the chance to wear it anymore, you’ll be able to look back on those photos! Same for any other uniforms or jackets like FFA or FCCLA jackets!
CAP & GOWN
Another prop we suggest bringing to your Senior portrait session is your cap and gown. Once graduation is over, your seniors will not use their cap and gown again so getting professional photos in them is always a must! Looking at them reminds you of how much work your senior put in and how incredible they truly are!
