When planning your senior shoot in Oregon, there are several things to consider! Things like when to book your shoot, how to style your hair, what to wear, and most importantly where to take your senior photos! I have tons of incredible senior photo shoot locations for my clients in Oregon, like the beach, or the mountains, or amidst sunflowers in the summer! But one of my favorite areas for photographing seniors around Oregon is simply out in the fields.
Field senior photos in Oregon offer a truly mesmerizing backdrop, often featuring breathtaking sunsets and enchanting golden hour vibes. The warm, golden light casts a magical glow on the surroundings, creating a dreamy and ethereal atmosphere for your photos. Even on a cloudy overcast day with no sunshine (we get a lot of those out here in Portland..). The simplicity of the location allows for the focus to be solely on you, capturing your unique personality!
In the spring and summer you can find green fields with wildflowers in bloom, and then as the seasons heat up the tall grows golden! Both offer a unique backdrop in the rugged Oregon landscape!
For outfit choices, options like overalls, long skirts, long dresses, and flowy dresses work well in this setting. These clothing options add a touch of whimsy and romance to your photos, perfectly complementing the natural beauty of the field. Whether you prefer a bohemian-inspired look or a classic and elegant style, these outfit choices will help you create stunning images. Neutral colors will always look good – creams, gold, browns, tan, green, etc.

They tell a story and make your senior shoot truly one-of-a-kind.
