We take students’ senior photos all over the Akron/Canton, Ohio area, and one thing is apparent across the board: it can be difficult to choose what to wear during your senior pictures session. This week’s blog will focus on our favorite outfits for girls and the basics of how to choose what to wear simplified into three simple tips. 

Tip One: Layer Over Basic Pieces

Simple staple pieces of an outfit are easy to build on with more elaborate accessories. Layering helps to increase the amount of outfits worn without wasting too much time changing clothes. Adding scarves, sweaters, different shoes, jackets, etc. can help you show more of your favorite pieces to add more variety to your photos!

Tip Two: Dress for All Seasons

Your photos may be scheduled for fall, but you may not be able to tell in all of your photos. We suggest that you still add variations in sleeve-lengths, pant styles, skirts and dresses to show your whole year’s style. Your pictures will be with you for all four seasons for years to come. We to you to switch it up!

Tip Three: Coordinate Your Favorite Colors

Maybe this seasons colors are your favorites, and maybe they are not, but we want you wearing what you love! Wear colors that fit your scenery in which you feel beautiful and flattered. Don’t wash yourself out or wear brick read in front of a brick wall; we can help you pick colors that go with your session’s feel so that you are happy with your results!

Your Senior Pictures are some of the last professional photos that you will have all to yourself. No photographer wants you to regret your outfits years down the road. Making simple, flattering choices can make all of the difference. For more information on what to wear and dressing your shape, go to our What to Wear Guide for more information. Happy shopping and planning!
