Tips for Making Your Senior Session Unique

Having a great Senior Session often takes some simple planning beforehand.  I love when seniors have sessions that are personalized just for them!  Following are a couple ways to make your senior session awesome!

1. create a theme.  For example if you love Paris you could incorporate Eiffle tower props, French macarons and your passport with your last stamp from La ville lumière.  For outfit choices pick something Parisian inspired.  If you love the ocean and surfing you could have a beach session and use your surf board as an accessory.  (double photographer excitement points if you actually get in the water and go surfing for part of your session!)  If you love camping let’s head up to the hills for a camping themed shoot!

2. Bring Props that are special or unique to you.  If you are on a sports team bring your sports items such as your tennis racket or soccer ball.  If you love reading, bring a stack of beautiful vintage novels.  If your little Yorkie pup is your best friend bring her along!

One of my business goals this year was to get out and shoot more for myself .  Going to workshops or having fun little stylized shoots is so good for my business growth and my creative growth.  Grabbing a model and a few pretty props in a gorgeous location is an instant way to get me out of a creative rut and remind myself why I love photography so much.  I’ve got several styled sessions and a one-on-one workshop with one of my favorite photographers in October (eek!!) so stayed tuned for more of these pretty little shoots in the coming year!  Here is just a peek of beautiful Ciarra!!
