Senior Pictures – What should I wear?

Senior Pictures   What should I wear? photo

This is the biggest question of them all – what should I wear?  The great thing about senior pictures is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just one outfit!  If you choose the Complete Session, you have no limits to your clothing changes, so bring a ton of stuff!  Variety is the key, especially since this is the chance to get to show off all your sides – the girly girl, the athlete, the bohemian, the trendy girl, the classic beauty, etc!  Below are some photos to get your imagination flowing.

Trendy outfits and patterns

Pick out some outfits that are in trend and show off what is in style at this time in your life.  Look for great patterns and silhouettes that are in fashion for 2016.

Classic dresses

Bring a classic dress.  A simple silhouette and solid color will never go out of style and always look classy!

Be Bold

 

Don’t be afraid to choose some bold colors and patterns!  Whether you are using it as a main piece or a great accent, a big splash of color always looks great!

Formal Dresses

 

I don’t know why girls don’t bring their prom dresses along more often?   There are so many fun things we can do with those gorgeous gowns!

Senior Sports Photos – Special Scheduling Available

I know, as the mom of an athlete, that schedules are tight.  Practices and games fill up a lot of time.  That is why I reserve weekend senior photo appointments  just for players during their in-season sports – so, late this summer and into fall those spots are for athletes involved in football, volleyball and cross country.  I will do the very best I can to work around your schedule!  Sports photos are one of the best ways to show just who you are in your senior pictures.  Be sure to bring along all your gear – uniforms, pads, balls, equipment, etc.  We can do photos both in the studio and at outdoor locations.  Share you ideas!  Let me know if you thought up a great concept, and we’ll give it a try.  I’m always up to try something new, so just let me know.

You invested time, energy, money and a lot of thought into your photo session.  You chose outfits, decided on backgrounds, rounded up the family and maybe even employed some bargains and bribes to get everybody to cooperate.  I know…I have done it!  Then you reviewed and agonized (well that might be a strong word, but you know what I mean), when choosing your final photos for print.  But then after all that, there they sit in the box.  They deserve prime real estate in your home!  Share them, show them off, and enjoy them for years to come!

And you know, really, that doesn’t just apply to your professional photos.  If you are like me, you probably have a ton of great photos on your phone and stuck in your computer.  Get those printed, too!  If only for the reason that if something were to happen to your computer, phone, tablet, etc.  you could lose those photos forever.  It gives me a pit in my stomach just to think of that possibility.  Here are some other reasons to get those photos printed and displayed….

Self Confidence:  Displaying your photos helps build your children’s self esteem and self confidence.  They notice that you have taken the time to frame, hang, and show off their photos!  It feels great  and helps them understand that they are valued and loved and that you want to see them all the time.

Memories:  Everybody says it, but oh how true….life goes by in the blink of an eye.  When you display your photos, you bring back some of the memories, feelings, etc.  You can watch your children grow and recall how your precious newborn felt in your arms, hear that silly toddler giggle, and feel the pride of graduation day.   Nothing sparks those memories like a great photo.

Look how Lacy displayed one of each of her Milestone’s Photos! You can really see how her son has grown in relation to the Tonka Truck. So cute!

Sharing:  Photos spark dialogue.  When we look at photos together, we share the memories and events.  We smile and laugh together.  And especially on a hard day, or when a loved one feels far away, a photo can help us recall all that is good in our lives.

Don’t Pitch those Pretty Cards!

I have just about got all the Christmas decorations boxed up and put away (well, the kids almost have it all done).  But every year I cringe at the thought of throwing out all the wonderful cards we receive from friends and family.  I know a lot of thought and love went into creating the cards and mailing them out, and they are just too pretty to pitch.  So, with that in mind, here are some great ideas for ways to enjoy your Christmas cards all through the year….

1.  Take a photo of the cards and assign them to your phone contacts.  I absolutely adore this idea and have started on updating all the contacts in my own phone.  How great is it to see a “face” pop up when a new call call comes in?

2. Use ring clips to create a book of all the cards. Of course you can get as creative as you want with this. Pack them up with the rest of your decorations to bring back out every Christmas.  How fun will it be to go through them year after year and see how kids have grown and people have changed through time!  It’s also a great ice breaker at get togethers.  Your guests will love to peruse through past cards and reminisce.

3. Create a Prayer Basket or add the photo cards to your Bible or daily devotional book. Each day, pull a card and add that family to your prayer list for the day. This would would be an excellent idea for kids to do at bedtime as well.

4. Create a “WHO LOVES ME?” booklet for children. The book can help younger children learn names and all of them feel connected to a bigger group of family and friends who care about them.

I’d love to hear your tradition for your family and friends holiday cards. Of course there are a ton of ideas on pinterest and craft website and blogs. If you receive a lot of non-photo cards there are even more ideas for recycling these. Just one more thing to add to your after-holiday clean up list.
