Are you getting ready for that final year of High School? Start your summer by scheduling a Senior Portrait Session. We will capture timeless portraits that will capture the wonderful memories you are creating in this final year high school. If you are looking for unique and modern senior portraits – we would love to work with you. If you live in Evansville or surrounding area, please contact us. We can’t wait to plan your session, call 812-626-1186 or email at debi@debiwolfepix.com

Below are just suggestions, you don’t have to bring everything or even anything we have recommend. We want to capture who YOU are, not who you think you should be for us.  So only bring what makes YOU – YOU, and what makes YOU comfortable!

Girls

     Clothing

  • 1 formal outfit (prom dress, something your Mom really likes), multiple casual outfits (skirts, summer dresses, pants, shorts)
  • Try to avoid patterns, plaids, large words (except school attire), horizontal strips.
  • Bright solid colors are great.
  • Multiple shoes to match your chosen outfits.
  • Bring scarves, purses, jewelry, hats
  • If you bring light colored outfits, make sure to bring like colored underwear.
  • Bring a strapless bra if you plan on wearing spaghetti strap or strapless clothes.
  • Bring more items than you think you’ll need.
  • Iron your outfits the night before and avoid folding them so there are no wrinkles.

Grooming

Hair – Avoid getting a new haircut the day before.  If you want to try a new haircut, do it 1 week beforehand so you can figure out if you like it and how to fix it.  You should also bring any items that will allow you to quickly change your hair style.
Nails – You should have your nails done the day before your session. Your nails and fingers will show, so make sure you think about them while getting ready.  Clean, properly groomed nails will make a big difference in your portraits. Don’t forget about your toes as well.
Makeup – Apply a “little” more makeup than normal (but don’t overdo it). Make sure your mascara is clean and free of clumps. Extra mascara will make your eyes stand out more. Don’t worry about a random pimple or small break out the morning of your session as these are easy to fix in editing.
Tanning – Stop for at least 4 days before your session. Burned or peeling skin is not flattering.  Avoid having tan lines that will show with your outfits.
Glasses – If you can buy or borrow a pair of non-glare glasses or frames without the glass.

Guys

     Clothing

  • Try to avoid patterns, plaids, words, and horizontal strips.
  • Bright solid colors are great.
  • Bring at least 1 nice button up shirt,
  • 2-3 collared shirts,
  • 2-3 casual shirts (T-shirt),
  • Comfortable fitting pants and shorts.
  • 2 pair of shoes.
  • Bring a belt that matches your outfits.
  • Bring hats if you typically wear them.

Grooming

Shaving – Shave accordingly, depending on how fast you get the 5:00 shadow….  If you quickly get stubble shave 2-3 hours before the session to avoid red irritated skin.
Nails – Make sure to clean and groom your finger nails
Hair – You should get a haircut 2-3 days before your session and new hair styles least 1 week before your session to allow enough time to figure out how to style it.
Glasses – If you can buy or borrow a pair of non-glare glasses or frames without the glass.

Things to keep in mind – light colors, tight fitting, and horizontal lines make you appear heavier than you are.  If you don’t like your arms, don’t bring sleeveless/tank top shirts. Darker colors, looser fitting, and vertical lines are slimming in portraits.
Bring some of your own props – Class rings, musical equipment, books, flowers, balloons, sports equipment/apparel, iPod, glasses and shoes…items that make you who you are.
Bring a friend or two – Friends bring a level of comfort and relaxation to you and that’s what we’re going for during your session. Your friends will also know if you are looking and acting like yourself, which is important.
The night before – Get all your outfits and accessories picked out and packed the night before to avoid any stress the morning of your session. Get plenty of sleep the night before. Most importantly, RELAX & HAVE FUN!!  Be wild and free.  No one will see your images until you OK them.
