A question I get asked a lot is: “when is the best time to take senior photos?” I usually recommend booking your photoshoot for the Summer before your last semester, or better yet in the gorgeous Autumn months! Here’s a few reasons why you should book a Fall Senior Session:
This is the really fun part!! You’ve decided to get your fall senior photos done (YAY) Now to dream up the perfect outfit! All of my senior sessions include 2 outfit changes (3 in the adventure session!) So you can bring a couple different options and decide once you get to the location. I’m always happy to give any input on what would photograph well too! I love seeing each clients unique style come out at their session, but if you’re having trouble getting started here’s some ideas on what to wear:
Neutral/Earthy Tones. Think about the environment and the season. Imagine the colors of the landscape and how it makes you feel. PNW colors that always work: forest green, sandy beige, cloudy white, rusty amber, coal-black, earthy brown, etc.
Texture/Patterns. Combing different fabrics adds a fun element to photographs! Choosing between soft and flowing like a silk dress, or rougher like a denim jacket. Cable knit sweaters and boyfriend jeans, a wind-swept dress and pair of trendy sneakers; you can dress up or down your outfit exactly how you like!
Okay so we’ve touched on why a fall senior session is a great idea, and tips on what to wear. But you might be wondering WHERE do we take these epic senior photos? I’ve got a ton of amazing senior photoshoot locations lined up, local to Portland, and more throughout the PNW for my adventure senior sessions! I don’t give away all of the epic spots I’ve scouted out (I save a lot exclusively for my clients!) But here’s a few ideas on where to take your senior photos:
