With this 3 tips for an awesome High School Senior session in Atlanta you will have a head start on the process.

But first, let me start by saying how important it is to find the right photographer , someone that will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, someone that will give you the confidence to shine – to make you feel like the superstar, someone that can help you make the process a total breeze.

It is important to find someone who will not only take good photos but also a professional that matches the photography style you like, once you find that, it will be easier to love more your photos.

Let’s get started then…

Here are 3 tips for an awesome High School Senior session in Atlanta and surrounding areas fun and about you! No more boring backgrounds and stiff poses.


1.Plan more than one outfit

Playing dress up for your Senior session is another way to have fun during your photos, and let’s be honest, a great outfit will definitely elevate your images, so why not make it more memorable!

Also accessories are totally welcome! Think of your session as a model for a day opportunity, plan some outfits that can capture your personality, what you like, what you are passionate about, incorporate that!

I highly suggest to also add a formal outfit( party dress or gown and tuxedo for the boys, show what you got), an=t the end you will have a gallery with more variety. 


2.Location, location.

What a best way to make your photos more ABOUT YOU than to find a location meaningful and that represents you!

Think about what you like, are you more into urban settings? open fields? tall grass? would you like to show hobbies and dreams in the session? 

Also, think outside the box! maybe you or someone you know have access to a private estate, farm, venue, restaurant, store or even a beautiful home!, the sky is the limited when it comes to finding your dream location.






3. Considered getting hair and makeup done

Even if you are not use to wearing makeup,  it is important to consider this option to give your photos that WOW factor.

Professional makeup artist will help you achieved the look you are going for, and trust me once you see the results you will fall in love with your photos over and over again.(remember these photos will go on your parents and grandparents walls!)


Make sure to Incorporate in your session what is meaningful to you, sports, instruments, pets, remember, it is YOUR STORY!
