Spring and Summer is the perfect time for outdoor senior portraits here on the Central Coast. Being a parent myself, I understand how quickly time flies, which is why I do something special for each senior portrait parent. Parents that come to the session with their child receive a complimentary picture together and a 5×7 print.
Senior portraits in the Village of Arroyo Grande are very special. This year is extra special with the creek beds still green and extra flowers we did not see in the previous years drought.
As a photographer, I think it’s very important to express your personality in your pictures. I want my clients to stand out in the yearbooks. Here is some tips for your senior portrait session:
-One, wear color. You have to think about your location first, then pick a color that blends together without washing out your skin tone.
-Second, show up early to the location so that you are not feeling rushed for your session and have plenty of time for outfit changes.
-Third, consider bringing a prop that represents you well. It could be a musical instrument, an animal, a classic car or something you are really passionate about.
-Fourth, consider having your hair and make-up professionally done. (I’m happy to give you recommendations) It makes the event more memorable and who doesn’t want to look their best for photos. It helps you feel more confident as well.
Lastly, pick the right photographer. Why? Because if you are not comfortable with your choice you will look uncomfortable in your photos. Personally, I know what it feels like to dread having your picture taken so I make a special effort to make each client feel comfortable, relaxed and beautiful in their own skin. I want each client to have fun and love their pictures for years to come. Thank you for checking out my work. How do you want your senior portraits to look?
