Spring is a beautiful time of year for a photo session and one of the best times to celebrate your senior year. If you are a high school senior girl, no doubt you want your spring senior pictures to be perfect. Fortunately, you don’t have to go in guessing the best thing to wear.
First, you can bring a few options and work out what looks best with your photography. Second, we’re about to give you some great tips on outfit choices that work best with the camera – and what to avoid – so that you have a radiant glow in every spring senior photo.
Spring Outfit Choices that Photograph Well
Some outfits are especially stunning for a springtime photo shoot, and we know that every senior girl’s style is unique. Here are a few tips that can help you pick the best outfits to bring your style to life for the camera.
Vivid Colors and Warm Neutrals
Embrace color, whatever springtime colors you like best. If you have a favorite top in vivid azure or a dress of magenta, bring them in. Of course, you’ll also look stunning in warm neutrals ranging from deep brown to soft cream and everything in between. Create a nice balance of color in your outfits, and you’ll see how beautiful your photos turn out.
Florals and Bold Patterns
Springtime is perfect for bolt patterns like florals, geometrics, and other favorites. Blend your patterns with a solid color, for example, a floral dress with suede boots and a belt, or a patterned top with solid jeans, to make your patterns pop.
Beautiful and Fun Accessories
Accessories make springtime photo sessions special. If you have a favorite hat, sunglasses, sports equipment, musical instrument, or something that represents your hobbies, bring them!
Flowing / Maxi Skirts and Dresses
Flowing dresses and skirts look spectacular in a photo shoot, giving your spring senior pictures an air of romance and elegance.
Blue Jeans and White Jeans
Jeans are a great way to show off your summer casual look. White jeans are particularly stunning with bright springtime blouses, while blue jeans look great with neutrals and patterns.
Comfortable Shoes or Bare Feet
Wear whatever shoes complete your outfit and make you feel comfortable. Or you can go natural with bare feet and show off your pedicure for the camera.
What to Avoid For Your Spring Photo Shoot
From experience, we can also tell you a few garments and outfits that don’t look the best in a photo shoot. Here’s what you’ll generally want to avoid:
Clothes You Can’t Move In
Tight, restricting, or too-short clothes tend to get in the way of a fun and beautiful spring senior picture session. Stick to comfortable, flattering clothes that you can pose freely in.
Neons and Fluorescent Colors
Some colors glare under the photo lights. Bright colors are beautiful but avoid true neon and fluorescent dayglo colors.
Disappearing Into Loose Layers
One or two loose items like a scarf or vest can be flattering, but don’t lose yourself in loose layers of clothing.
Phone In Your Pocket
Last but not least, avoid the common mistake of keeping your phone or keys in your pockets. To get the best lines for your spring senior pictures, empty your pockets before you start posing.
