3 Tips on What to Wear for Senior Pictures

Figuring out what to wear for senior pictures and getting ready for your photo session can be exciting for some high school seniors, and nerve-wracking for others. Here are a few tips on what to wear for senior pictures to make the day go a little smoother.  We would also love to hear from you on any tips you have to share!

1. Wear clothes that reflect your style. You may be tempted to go out and buy lots of new clothes and get a makeover, but now is not the time to create a whole new identity. Your friends know and love you for who you are, and your senior pictures should reflect your style and the person you are right now. Your senior yearbook will be treasured by everyone in your class for years to come. Gone are the days when guys had to wear suits, but if that’s your style then go for it. The key is to be comfortable with your look, and your photos will look great as a result.

When we first heard from this grad’s mom, she was in tears. “I just received my order and I have sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes because my daughter’s graduation invitations are so beautiful and perfect. I am a paper products snob and there is no way I could be any happier.” We get a lot of compliments from customers, but we don’t hear that one very often! So we contacted her to find out more.
