How to prepare for your senior session



Prepare to bring 4-6 outfits that show your style, (from a casual trendy outfit to your formal prom dress). Don't forget something that tells us about you. For example, a dancer, athlete, musician or bookworm…


Bring everything ironed and on a hanger.

Take pictures ahead of time and send them to Melanie. She will help you narrow them down. Personalized consultants are also available.

Accessories are quite important, bring a few options per outfit. Shoes can make or break your outfit. Please make sure to try them on with your outfits. Give your family a fashion show, laugh and get feedback

We have a huge style closet available for you, adding any look to your session. Let’s get creative.

Hair and Makeup

It’s essential to have your hair and makeup done professionally, which your session fee includes. We’ll work with the look you love to get it right in our professional lighting.




Please make sure you have clean trimmed nails, both hands and feet. Choose a neutral color, to compliment your outfits, should you get a manicure in advance.


A fresh shave is highly recommended, trim those moustaches and beards.


Pay attention to your nails, make sure they are trimmed and clean


Your Skin

Please do NOT tan, in the sun, spray or a tanning bed within a couple days of your shoot. You are perfect the way you are. A sunburn is difficult to cover up, your skin is damaged, and it will affect your makeup.


Come to your session with a clean face, no makeup

Don't worry about any blemishes they can be corrected in editing.
