Shot by Angel

Now that you have scheduled your Senior Photo Shoot let the fun begin! Let’s make sure we are on the same page, so first things first. Make Angel your friend on Facebook and then make sure the two of you are following each other on Pinterest. She is listed as Angel Taylor on Pinterest, and has done a lot of the leg work for you prior to your scheduling or photo shoot . 

Check out her photography boards, and you will find several for Senior shots. Don’t be afraid to pester me! Seriously! Text, Pin, or Facebook me with cool pic ideas as you find them and this will give me a base to go off as far as picking locations for your photo shoot.

We want to make sure that you look great! And it all starts with what you decide to wear. We've put together some great tips for you! Just remember these are only guidelines to get your started on deciding what to wear. Bring more outfits than your session allows (on hangers please) and together we will choose the best outfits for your session.

MOST IMPORTANT: Bring your clothes on a hanger, not in a duffle bag. Bring a variety of clothing, think summer, fall and winter, not just summer.

Solid colors look best, busy patterns or big logos can be very distracting. Wear a variety of clothes for different looks to bring out all your personality traits

Accessories add a lot to your outfits so feel free to compliment your look with scarves, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, hats, caps, shoes or belts.

Pants should be darker than your top; jeans, dark khakis and black pants photograph well. Lighter colored pants will make your hips look fuller.
Ladies dresses and skirts photograph well too and add some nice variety to your portraits, but boys don’t feel left out, I am certain a dress or skirt will give you a BIG VARIETY in your shoot! 

Yellow is most often not a great color to be photographed in because it competes with your skin tones.

Bring shoes, sandals, boots, etc. to match your outfits. Feel free to bring in any sports or hobby outfits and equipment. We have lots of ideas for creative shots. 
Don’t forget your Cap and Gown (and your tassel) as our studio does not have that on hand.
Other items you may not want to forget are your letterman jacket, sunglasses, musical instruments, sports equipment, and even your new car to be photographed in. 

The sky is the limit during your photo shoot! So bring the kitchen sink if you so desire!


For girls, please bring your own makeup for touchups, curling iron, or straighten
iron in the studio, brush or comb, and lastly be sure to bring a strapless bra for tops that require it.

Please be sure to bring lip gloss! Nobody wants their lips to look dry. So lip gloss or lip balm works best.
Your hands will show in many of your pictures so please either have your nails completely free of polish or have on a fresh coat. Don't forget your toes oftentimes we do barefoot shots too.
Tanning is fine but don't overdo it! If you get sunburned, you will not be happy with the results.

Please bring appropriate undergarments for every outfit. Be sure to bring a strapless bra for outfits that require it.


Please be sure you are clean shaven when you come for your session. We cannot remove facial hair during retouching.

Tanning is fine but don't overdo it! If you get sunburned, you will not be happy with the results.
Do not wear a cap but of course if you want to have your shots done in one by all means bring it and we will save those shots until the end of your session. 

Please, please put your clothes on a hanger and also try and make sure they are free of animal hair. Photoshop can only work so many miracles!
