Taking your senior photo shoot to the next levelAugust 24, 2012 by Artworks Tulsa Photography | Tulsa Senior Portraits
If you’ve been kicking around ideas in preparation for a senior photo shoot, get excited because today we’re going to review the ingredients necessary for an awesome senior photo session.
Think location, location, location! What backdrop do you envision for your photos? Perhaps you want a hip downtown vibe, or maybe a serene park-like setting is more you. We encourage you to check into even the most unconventional spaces. Check out these suggestions of some of our favorite places to shoot: http://artworkstulsaphotography.com/shooting-locations/.
Are you a huge baseball fan? You might consider booking Driller Stadium for your shoot. The sky is literally the limit.We are totally flexible and can even accommodate shooting at multiple locations during your session.
We use the following framework for senior shoots:
Option 1: 45 minutes, 2 oufits, 1 location
Option 2: 1.5 hours, 3-4 outfits, 2 locations
Option 3: 3 hours, 6 outfits, 3 locations
Take into account that travel between locations and time spent changing outfits is included in your total shoot time.
As for wardrobe, variety is the key. We recommend starting with three basic ideas- a fun, stylish look, a casual look in more of your everyday style, and a “mom-pleaser.” Accessorize to your heart’s content! Remember to come dressed in your first look if you will have multiple outfits to ensure we can make the most of your session.
Our high definition cameras love photographing high definition style! Enlisting professional assistance will ensure that you look like your best possible self as we capture memories that will last a lifetime. A professional makeup artist will properly match your skin’s depth of color and undertone, using proper methods to highlight and contour your face, while creating a look that will last all day. Look and feel fresh and beautiful for these important and lasting photos that will be on your wall for years! And take the anxiety out of doing your hair by letting an experienced stylist create a long-lasting look for you! We highly recommend Ashlee Bivins for makeup and Heather Valentine for hair. Whether you prefer a soft, natural look or something adventurous and super glam, these ladies can hook you up with a picture-perfect look you will love!
Most of all, we want you to bring your personality! We encourage you to consider props or creating a theme for the shoot. Don’t worry about being cheesy- if you like it, we can make it cool. We want the images we capture to showcase your interests and show you at your very best.
And don’t forget your four-legged friends! If you have a puppy or other pet you would love some photos with, let us know!
