Today’s Senior Feature
Today on the blog, we’re featuring Miss Maggie Lano’s photos, but Maggie is also our guest blogger! Check out Maggie’s perspective on The Senior Experience and planning for your session.
“So most people, as their junior year comes to a close, they begin worrying about how to prepare and make the most of their senior photo experience. Last spring, I was one of those people who worried. . . a lot. I asked just about everyone over the age of 17 about what to wear, how to do your hair, where to go, who you should have them done with, should you get your makeup done, should you bring anything. . . the list goes on and on. So as someone who loves their senior pictures and has loved their senior year so far, I have two answers for those questions.
First of all, Cameron & Tia. Obviously you should do some research first to see who would be the best fit for you, but I can say with about 99% confidence that you will love them. When researching, look through a photographer’s social media and website. Compare the style of different photographers, pick someone who gives good quality photos and who matches your style.
Once you pick a photographer, talk to them about what you want in your senior photos. They will help you sort out just about every detail to get the pictures you want. I really just wanted my horse to be in my pictures, Cam & Tia had done my older sister’s senior pics and knew that my horse lives in Waconia, so they picked a few other locations that they knew of nearby, that would be good for pictures. Your photographer does this for their job, so they know what will look best and how to work around what you want.
Now the second answer is. . . YOU! They’re your senior pictures, so do what makes you happiest. Most photographers let you have a couple outfits. In addition, they can tie in whatever props or even animals you want in your pictures. Remember, only one photo goes in that yearbook, the rest are for you and your family. If you want to go full glam for your pictures, go for it. If you want your horse in some of your pictures, find someone who will photograph it. As long as you get a few school and parent approved photos you’re golden to do whatever makes you happy in the rest of your photos.
If you’re having fun and incorporating what you love into your experience, you will look the prettiest or most handsome. As stressful as setting up these big life events can be in your senior year, you just need to do what makes you happiest and sets you up for success. ” – Maggie Lano
