Q. What’s one piece of advice you’d give to anyone getting their senior photos taken?

Q. How many outfits did you take?
A. practically half my closet hahaha kidding but i brought at least 11 outfits and we used 6
Q. Would you have taken more or less, reasons why?
A. I think the more the better because it gives more options and you rather have a variety to choose from rather than have too little.
Q. Did you accessorize differently with each outfit? If you have any tips on how many accessories, jewelry, shoes, headbands, etc they should bring, please list those tips here.
A. For every outfit I wore all my Alex and Ani bracelets because i always have them on me and they came out great in pictures and added more to the photos! I also used necklaces so bring as many necklaces as you want to choose from. I even brought my cowboy boots and cowboy hat for a fun theme for my pictures andI also brought a rose to put in my hair mainly because I LOVE country and my middle name is Rose so what better way to describe myself in a picture. Shoes i planned with my outfits at home, depends on your outfits but i brought my sandals, boots and converse.
Q. Did you take any props or try to incorporate any activities that you’re in?
A. No I didn’t but i did use the indian headdress which was amazing because Hart’s mascot is an indian and i’m also native american so it worked perfectly.
Q. Any tips on how to prepare for the session or must have things to bring?
A. If you are getting hair and makeup on always come natural. If done by yourself always bring makeup with you to touch up! and look like yourself, don’t try to be someone you’re not!
