What do I Wear to a Photo Shoot?

It’s time for your senior pictures! You may be asking, what do I wear? What do I bring? Well, don’t worry, because we are here with a Senior Photo Shoot style guide!

Follow the tips below to get the most out of your Senior photos!

Keep your outfits visually simple
Solid colors and simple patterns look best on camera! Avoid busy patterns and large logos or words. Textured fabrics such as cotton and wool are great options, stay away from silks or satin.

Have an outfit plan
Your number of outfit changes will depend on which session you choose. Always plan out your outfits ahead of time and bring extra ones! You may change your mind once you see the backgrounds and sets in person.

Don’t be afraid to be diverse with your outfits
You may be tempted to just bring your favorite everyday outfits, but be sure to bring something a little dressier. Variety is key!

Apply your makeup normally
Powder, eyeshadow or lipstick with glitter or shine may cause a reflection from the flash so try to stick to matte finishes. Matte powder is your friend! Bring it with you even if you did your makeup, you may need to reapply to avoid shine.

Stick with hairstyles you know
Your hair needs to be styled in a way that you are comfortable with, so don’t try a new hairstyle for your shoot. If you need to get your haircut, try to go at least a week in advance to give your hair time to adjust and look normal.

Pay attention to details
Check your nails for chipped polish and go with simple colors that won’t distract from your outfits. Try to avoid going out in the sun for long periods of time right before your shoot. Nobody wants sunburns or tan lines in their senior pictures!

Accessorize
Hats, belts, jewelry, shoes, props… these items can be very important. They help show off your personality and make your photos all about you!

Senior Focus: Leonard’s Announces New Senior Spotlight Contest!

We are so excited to announce our new contest! Seniors now have the opportunity to enter for a chance to be featured as one of Leonard’s Senior Spotlights. If chosen, a spotlight article will be written on the senior and then published on our blogs and in our monthly newsletter. The best two photos of the senior will be posted on our Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest, and WordPress. We will also create a Facebook album dedicated to them, which can be shared with friends and family. We will also present the senior with a discount voucher to be used on a future purchase.

I know it will be super difficult to for us to choose the seniors because they are all so awesome! However, we look forward to getting everyone involved and finally showcasing our incredible seniors of 2013!! This year the spotlight is on you!!
