Seniors and your upcoming photo sessions Part II --
Ahhh, the second most asked question - “what can I bring?". Special items,and props can really add to your image and ‘tell your story’. Perhaps a simple chalk board announcing your graduation year or a cool chair or stool to sit on in a beautiful open field:
Props actually go beyond what you can bring or what your photographer will tote out to the session, think of location and surroundings, do you have a favorite place, restaurant or hangout?
Be sure to pay some thought to your hobbies and pastimes. If you are an athlete or play an instrument, bring those items along as well as incorporating choices of books, music and maybe even the career you will pursue.
And what about your pets – your beloved horse or best friend Fido, they are a huge part of your growing up and the milestones you are hitting. Youth seems to ooze with creativity and we love to hear your ideas and bring those to life for you! Just be sure to mention to us you want to bring out Fido so we can make sure he is allowed at your location. What about your friend the bear?
