How to prepare?

 Don’t wait until the last minute for such a momentous occasion!  This are your senior portraits that will be hanging in the wall of your high school!

  • Check out my “HS Seniors What to Wear” board on Pinterest at KaLeigh Welch Photograph

  • Send me photos via FB, Pinterest or text so that we can dial down your style and your look

  • Discuss with me what locations are your favorite, do you like Nature, Urban/City, Country, Sports, etc.

  • Practice your smile and poses so it all comes natural on the big day

  • Get plenty of rest the night before

  • Try on your outfits to ensure they fit correctly

 What to Wear?

Make sure to wear outfits that make you feel and look amazing but most of all comfortable and by comfortable I don’t mean you favorite pair of sweats! Visit Pinterest HERE for some suggestions.

Consider the following outfits

  • Casual (1)

  • Dressy (1)

  • “This is Me!” (1)

  • Uniform – Sport or Activity of Choice (if applicable)

“Say No” to the following:

  • Bright White doesn’t photograph well

  • Shirts with logos or big pictures or print

  • Wild patterns that take away from you

  • Make sure outfits are free of wrinkles, stains or rips/holes.

What to bring to the shoot?

 An amazing attitude and also the following!

  • Your outfits on hangers to prevent wrinkles

  • Water to stay hydrated

  • Mirror for last minute glances

  • Make-up for touchups

  • And of course a best friend or parent, someone who makes you feel comfortable that can also make sure your hair is perfect!

Don’t forget the details!

 The smallest things can stick out when you have had time to study your pictures, so remember those little details.

  • Have fresh nails.  This goes for guys too!  Make sure your nails or clean or that you have a new coat of paint!

  • Ladies wearing make-up keep it clean and natural.  Just a little heavier than your every day wear.

  • As for the hair do not try anything new the day before or day of your shoot.  Give a haircut some time to get used to.  I suggest at least a week before.

  • Guys make sure you are shaved up, or bearded and ready.


 To make sure your photos are unique add your own special touch!

  • Hobby Equipment, i.e. skateboards, bikes, books, art supplies, etc.

  • Musical instruments

  • Sports Equipment, i.e. Baseball bat, glove, ball, volley ball, basketball, football, uniform, etc.
