not sure how to prepare for your senior session?

You’ve booked your senior session with Kali, so now what? You’re officially a #KPSenior and I’m SO excited to work with you! It’s time to decide on a look for your session and choose your outfits carefully. This is one of the most exciting ( but also overwhelming ) parts of the experience – there are so many options, but I am here to help! 

Keep reading to find out my go-to tips and tricks for preparing for your senior session. This guide will help you get the absolute most out of your senior portrait experience, and make sure that you love all of your images! 

Your session is going to begin at a pre-determined location, based on the answers to your senior questionnaire and the session length you chose. We will meet there a few minutes before we plan to start shooting so that I can help you finalize any outfit choices! Please try your absolute best to arrive on time, if not a few minutes early. As a natural light photographer, your session is scheduled around the time that the sun sets or the best lighting possible. Therefore, if you arrive at your session even 15 minutes late, it can affect the length of your session. If you are more than 30 minutes late to your session, we will need to reschedule for my earlier convenience (which is often 2-3 months out).  

read below to see my favorite tips and tricks for preparing for your senior session!

OUTFIT TIP #1

be
YOU!

Stuck on what to wear? You can also get some “what to wear” inspiration on my senior style Pinterest board HERE.

The most important thing is to be authentic! A lot of times we view picture day as a special occasion, so we want to go out and buy something for the occasion. And a lot of times, we choose things we wouldn’t normally wear. I get it, you want something nice, and you want it to be special. My advice is to find something special IN YOUR OWN STYLE – you don’t need to go buy a new ball gown or an over the top outfit that you would never wear again. Often, when you try something you typically wouldn’t wear, you can feel uncomfortable and this can reflect in your images, it’ll feel awkward. If you don’t like tight fitting clothing, leave them at home! Personally I try to steer clear of tight fitting items around my belly, or too baggy on my arms, because I’m constantly wondering if it looks bad. So, if there are items in your closet that make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable, don’t include them in your senior portrait wardrobe! If something doesn’t fit you quite right, it may not be something you want to bring either. I will most likely have you sitting on the ground, walking, spinning around, laying down, or doing other things that would be difficult if your clothing is uncomfortable. So – when you go in search of the perfect outfits, be sure to look for fun pieces that you will wear even after senior pictures are taken. You will be much more comfy, and you will look like YOU in your images!

let me introduce…

why you should get professional hair & makeup

The Full Senior package includes professional hair and makeup, and this section below explains a lot of why I include this service in your session. If you did not purchase the full senior session, and it is in your budget, I would love to set you up with one of my partners – just ask at the time of booking! 

I highly recommend that all of my seniors invest in professional hair and makeup for their senior session, and here is why! If it is in your budget, it will drastically improve the quality of your images and your senior portrait experience. You are already making a large investment here, so why not make it the best it can be? The answer is DUH! So why exactly is it so important? 

Here are reasons why…
  • HELLO they are trainer professionals!
    When you are investing in a professional photographer, you want to make sure that the images look their absolute best. Professional hair and makeup artists are trained to do this service so that they photograph well, and some makeup products or application methods do not. While your makeup may look AMAZING in person, it will look completely different on-camera, and these professionals are trained to know the difference! They will conceal spots you don’t like, contour your face so it looks the best in every light, use colors that compliment your skin and outfits to make it look flawless, make your eyes POP with false lashes and shadows, manicure your eyebrows to perfection and more! My favorite part of my makeup and hair team is that I’ve specifically selected them for my seniors – I have trusted them for years to keep my seniors looking like the best version of themselves! So they will leave those CUTE freckles visible and make sure you look fab! 
  • Less Stress Preparing
    Your senior portrait session is stressful in and of itself – picking outfits, making it on time, keeping fly aways down, etc. Trying to do your hair + makeup by yourself can make things even harder and create more stress. Professional camera equipment is designed to pick up every detail in an image (even details that the eye can’t see sometimes!) so hiring a professional artist is the way to go, always!
  • Who doesn’t like to be pampered?
    I never want one of my seniors to feel like their senior portrait session is simply “taking pictures”. It should be an EXPERIENCE! So, if my seniors arrive to their session after an hour or so of being pampered and beautified, the entire experience has already gotten off to a great start! If a senior arrives frustrated or stressed, it can affect the entire experience, and become more of a stressful one, and it can show in your photographs.
