Recently, we have incorporated pre-session consultations into your experience because we’ve discovered how important it is to get to know clients prior to photographing them. While telephone consults continue to be most popular, more and more we are going to the client’s home in order to advise on wardrobe. With senior portrait sessions, that’s always a challenge because teenagers are free spirits and know exactly what they like to wear! While it’s important to follow the usual rules of solids and non-clashing colors in typical portraiture, with Captures by Erin – Seniors, you can pretty much throw the rules out the window. Mix and match accessories, trendy colors and patterns, funky hats and scarves… the sky is the limit and the more creative you are, the better your images will be. Just remember to wear clothes that fit properly and aren’t too baggy or too tight.
I have a diverse taste in clothing like most free spirited artists. Plato’s Closet in Fort Worth is a great spot for bargain hunting in the trendiest styles. Depending on the time of year, that place is a gold mine. Take a look at the latest looks for ideas but don’t imitate… Let your senior session be your own and let your creativity soar!
