Indoor and outdoor photos shoot
Outdoor photo shoots are best in the morning or late in the afternoon. Tucson sun can be harsh causing over exposed pictures, squinting eyes and unwanted sweat on your arms and face.
Indoor photo shoots are good any time of the day but it is important to know what options are available for back drop colors and designs. This way you’re able to choose your outfits accordingly.
Choosing what to wear for your senior photo shoot
When it comes to picking out the perfect outfits make sure you avoid tight fitting jeans and/or tops. Do not highlight any areas of your body that you are self-conscious about.
Wearing tight of jeans can make it challenging when changing poses from standing to sitting without feeling uncomfortable.
If you have a bit of a tummy stay away from wearing tight tops since the camera can emphasize things you may not want to draw attention to.
Sleeveless tops are not recommended for anyone who is self-conscious about their arms.
Stay away from clothes that are busy with lots of patterns since they can be distracting and move the focus away from the object of the photo….you.
Choose colors that compliment your skin tone.
Try on your outfits and practice posing in front of a mirror with each outfit making sure you have the look you desire and are comfortable wearing the outfit.
Make up for ladies is essential when it comes to a successful photo shoot even if you don't usually wear makeup. There is a lot more to makeup than just applying it to your face. Choosing make up that compliments your skin, eyes and smile can make all the difference in the world. If you don’t feel confident about choosing the right colors for your skin tone we recommending making an appointment with your favorite make up artist. If you don’t have one please asks and I will be happy to make some recommendations.
Guys bring powder or a hand towel to wipe sweat or to reduce shine.
I highly suggest beauty blotter oil-absorbing tissues you can find some at Walgreens, Target, CVC, or my personal favorite, Mary Kay

Hair is challenging to Photoshop and can get expensive to touch up. Treat yourself to a trim or any other maintenance your hair might need. This does not mean to try a new look or style; please stick with what you know and are comfortable with. There is nothing like trying something new and then being stuck with something you might not like right before your senior picture. Guys, you may want to get your haircut a week or two before the photo shoot to allow it to fill in and look its best.
Don’t forget that your hands and feet need love too! If you are planning on any of your poses being bare footed it would be a good idea to get a manicure. If it’s not in your budget make sure your feet are clean and your toe nails are trimmed and filed. The same would apply for your hands and nails. Guys, you too.
Start thinking about different poses or props you would like to have in your photo shoots. Be creative and have fun!! Practice different facial expressions and poses in a mirror until you love what you see and feel comfortable that will come through in your photos.
I spend extra time on my senior photo shoots to make sure that you are receiving the special attention you deserve for this special time in your life.
