Have you ever felt like you weren’t good enough? Well I sure as heck have. In all honesty, I wasn’t even supposed to be the mom featured on our Mother’s Day promotion. 

The truth is I had a mom already booked who I felt would be a much better “fit” than me. We were set to take photographs of she and her two beautiful daughters later this week, but I wanted to do some test photos for the set before she came. 

So how did I end up in the photos? The answer is  simple —my husband and partner, Pedro. He said, “Don’t you want to get in some shots too?”. Each time he asked I told him no, slightly considering the thought more and more each time until I finally cracked. He suggested I wear one of our studio gowns. Then I pulled my hair up into the same hairstyle I’ve had a thousand times, and threw on some chapstick.

Seriously. That’s all that happened. So why was it so hard? I’m assuming the same reason moms all around the world have camera rolls of more than 1000 photos of their children, and only 20 of the photos include themselves. The number of snapshots of both them and their children pictured together is probably less than 10% of their camera roll. It’s hard because we’re not thinking of ourselves. It’s hard because we don’t think we’re perfect. Our hair isn’t right. We don’t have makeup on. What if we don’t look good? 

Girlfriend guess what? These are really just figments of our fears of what beauty means to us when all along strong women and mothers like you have been creating our own standard of beauty. When my children look back on photos of me, I’m almost certain they won’t be thinking of those small details we nitpick and use as excuses everyday. They’ll simply reply, “This is Mama. Oh, and that’s me!”

How to Slay Your Senior Session with Confidence! | Houston, The Woodlands, and Jasper, TX Senior Photographer

how to style senior session.png

Get to know your photographer. Seniors who take the time to get to know their photographer feel more relaxed and comfortable, than those who meet their photographer for the first time. The Pre-Session Consultation, is just a fancy way of saying we get to know a little bit about each other via a chat, phone call, or in-person meeting.

Bring yourself, as in BE YOURSELF).  If you don't remember anything else from this post, please remember this --be yourself. This includes being true to yourself and who you are. Trust me, if you're not being yourself at the session, it shows. It's okay to step outside of your comfort zone, but you definitely don't want to display serious facial expressions when you're normally smiling or goofing off. In order to get great photographs, it's important that you're relaxed and comfortable at the session.

Plan ahead of time. It's important that you plan for the session ahead of time. Waiting until the last minute to book a photographer, could leave you in the position of not having photographs to document this important time in your life. And, in the event that you are able to book a photographer at the last minute, there's still so much planning that goes into a session and you certainly don't want to scramble through boutiques or stores trying to find outfits for your session. 

Dress to impress. Clothes should be fitted prior to the day of your session, so that you know exactly how they fit. Make sure to get rid of the wrinkles prior to the session. Blouses and bottoms should hang neatly on hangers. Avoiding clothing with large logos or graphics because they take away from the person in the photo.

Don’t worry…be happy. Last minute pimple show up the night before or day of your session, that's okay! I’ll take care of your acne and blemishes so there's no need to worry. All you have to do is show up to the session and have a great time -I'll take care of the rest! 

Professional hair and makeup artist. A professional hair and makeup artist can completely transform your senior session. They are trained professionals and know how to cater to your needs. You'll have less time to stress and worry about your hair or makeup, and more time to focus on being pampered like a queen! *Bonus: schedule a makeup and/or hair trial a few weeks before scheduled session. *Ask us about including hair and/or makeup into your custom senior session. 

Don’t forget your props! Sports equipment, jersey or uniforms, musical instruments, and books are just a few props that can really tie your personality into the session. They can also add meaning and originality to your session. No props? Not a problem, you'll rock your session either way. 

Get a good night’s rest. Often overlooked, many seniors tend to forget to get a good night's rest; however, it's more important than you think. The more rest you've had, the more time you'll have to enjoy and have a great time at your session. You're also more likely to feel comfortable and have more time to focus on the details. 

Take care of the necessities. This may go without saying for some, but it's worth it to include anyway: 

  • Clean shave. Unless of course, hairy legs and lots of stub are your thing.

  • Guys, it's best to get a haircut at least 6-8 days prior to the session.

  • Bring a hairbrush or comb. It works great for fly-aways and touch-ups.

  • Nails should be manicured, while skin should be moisturized.
