A great way to add personality and uniqueness to your senior pictures is to bring along your own accessories! Certain acessories have the ability to elevate an outfit, make your senior photos your own, and really add an element of fun! Think about it… this session is all about YOU and your life at this very moment! What things can you bring to your session that will help you memorialize your senior year? 

Here’s 5 accessories to bring to your senior session: 

01. Sunglasses: these can always add a fun component to any session outfit you bring! Pair your retro outfit with sunnies that fit the era! Or go for classic aviators to add a timeless look to your fave wardrobe piece! We can take a few shots with them on your face, then the rest with them on your head. We can remove them all together for a few pics too – it’s up to you!

02. Hats: for a spring session, opt for a baseball hat, boaters hat, or even a bucket hat to keep your look light and fun. When the weather turns cool for your senior session, go with a wide brimmed hat, beanie, or beret. These sort of hats in deeper colors will perfectly match seasonal trends.

03. Jewelry: whether it be earrings, bracelets, necklaces, or rings, you can never go wrong with adding jewelry to your session outfits. Remember to bring both gold and silver jewelry to match your outfits and give plenty of variety to your looks. Speaking of variety, bring a few statement pieces as well as any jewelry that you always wear! This will make your styling more personal. And don’t forget your Class Ring!
