There are a lot of options we can talk about when it comes to planning your senior portraits. This list of 25 answers some of your questions + gives you new ideas you might want to talk about for your senior session.

It answers your questions:: How do we tell your senior story + what to wear in my senior pictures?

This is a big milestone chapter in your life story.


After high school, most of us will not take professional portraits again until our wedding day!

So senior guys might be cheering right now, but Mom’s everywhere are shedding a tear {and it’s not the happy tear kind}.

Let’s capture this moment + talk about what’s most important to you right now. That includes what you will wear for your senior portraits.

I can answer, what to wear, what to bring…along with so many other questions you have for your senior portraits. Another resource I’ve created for my high school seniors is the SMP Client Welcome Guide. This video flips through my guide that I give to each senior {or Mom of senior} for another resource.

{Maybe I should have called this post, “On The Quick”, with the 25 tips + the video guide tour.}

Flip through the pages for tips.

I get asked a lot of questions, but…

What to wear for senior pictures is the most asked question.

And I definitely cover that question in both of these pieces, but the fine details of your story is also very specific to each of us. No one else has your story to tell + this is the time to stop and capture this last high school chapter.

Here are a few more things to consider::

  • What are you comfortable wearing
  • What type of accessories will you add into the images
  • Patterns to avoid in your photos
  • How to wear your hair with the outfits you’ve chosen
  • When to get your hair cut / colored
