How Accessories Can Make Your Session SHINE! | Sycamore Photographer

You know what they say…the perfect outfit is completed by the perfect accessory! When planning your senior session, usually everyone thinks about the outfits or pieces individually,

but they forget about the final, polished look that comes when it?s completed with accessories. Today, we are going to talk about how to incorporate a little sparkle into your senior shoot with just a few simple additions:

-Add a scarf or hat: I love the trend of a little bit of bling on trucker or newsboy style caps.

Buckle is a great place to find similar styles like this one, which is a really fun take on a summer-ready fedora.

A lightweight scarf is a surprising (most people think they are only for fall or winter) and comfy choice to add a little style to a very casual outfit, like jeans and a tee.

A scarf like the ones below can pull together an otherwise simple look with a pop of color and pattern.

If you?re a local teen (or mom!), we love the new items at Shop in Style, a local boutique with loads of darling accessories!


-Cute Jewelry: What girl doesn?t like cute statement jewelry?

Even if you?re not a huge fan of large jewelry, it can be a great way to make your senior photos stand out from your everyday style.

Below are a few more options from Shop in Style…a matching necklace and earring set is so cute, and would look great with a printed maxi skirt and a solid color tank or tee.

If you?re on the hunt for affordable jewelry and aren?t local to our area, consider looking on Forever 21 online, where they have a very large selection of pretty and inexpensive statement jewelry.

If you really would prefer not to wear anything large, even a tiny pair of rhinestone studs can really elevate your look, and you could wear them every day!


The perfect pair of shoes:?I love the look of pretty boots with flowy dresses.

The contrast in textures and styles makes it a focal point for a session or an event like a party or birthday! Buckle is another great place to find quality footwear, though they are on the pricier end.

We love this ?Adyn? boot, with it?s subtle chain and sparkle detail! A little shimmer can go a long way, and you don?t want to overwhelm your photos or outfit with too much.

Be sure to pick just one or two sparkly pieces, rather than every item, to complement your look. For more style tips, and practical inspiration, subscribe to our newsletter below!
