Senior Pictures Check List.
This may answer many of your questions before you come to K Jay Photos Photography for your senior pictures. The Photographer moves really quickly during your senior picture session to maximize the most of your session and some of these tips will help. Additional helpful information here. Also, K Jay Photos Photography has partnered this year with both the Buckle Store in West Towne Mall and Francesca’s Collection in West Towne Mall here in Madison, WI. They can help you select outfits for each of the below storyboard. Just show them the storyboard (Beach, Urban, Country, Park) to show them where you will be photographed at. This is all decided ahead of time with K Jay Photos. Click here for more details.
For girls, we suggest you wear a white cami underneath your top to help you have the ability to change tops quickly out while we are out and about. Minimize eye shadow and lip gloss that will create glare, if your lips are dry wear chapstick instead. A majority of our senior portrait customers select the Lot’s to Choose From Package which we typically can get through 5-9 outfits depending on how many outdoor locations we visit and how difficult your outfits are to change in and out of. If it is warm and humid out on the day of your photography session make sure to bring along a face powder to remove shine as needed. If it is windy out you may want to consider bringing along a hair brush. For make up, wear it as you usually wear your make up. We do not want to capture someone that isn’t really you. If you are planning on incorporating sports equipment or sports clothing, a prom dress or any props that you might bring with please make sure to let us know before you arrive so we can add it to our plan for your senior portrait session.
For guys, make sure to bring along clothes that are nicely pressed and that fit you comfortably. We have many guys wear a t shirt under their shirts and many that don’t. It is really your personal preference and there is no right or wrong to many of your outfit selections as in the end they are your senior pictures and we want you to love them. We suggest you choose clothing options that are not to busy with prints unless it fits your personality than by all means bring that crazy wild shirt. Usually we suggest you wear one pair of jeans or shorts that goes with many of your shirt options. Typically 4-6 outfits during our Lot’s to Choose From Session is what we will get through. We do suggest you bring more options for us to choose so bring along additional shirts if you can. If you are planning on incorporating sports equipment, jerseys or any props, please make sure to let us know before you arrive so we can incorporate it into your senior portrait session.
