seniors -what to wear



ahhhh… this is the fun part! we encourage you to bring SEVERAL outfits, and we will help you to select the best ones for your session. for example, if you choose the lookbook session we recommend bringing at least 6 outfits (or more). we may not get to them all, but it will give us a great idea as to your style and ‘look’ so that we can give you the best experience possible.






MAKEUP (this part is just for girls!)

makeup is probably the most critical part of your portrait session. even if you do not regularly wear makeup – or don’t wear ‘much makeup’ – you need the appropriate amount applied for your portraits to look their best. based on the application, makeup can make you look ‘natural’, ‘glamorous’, ‘sophisticated’, and more.

Photography By E. provides a make-up artist we continually work with that can provide you with the perfect look for you. Its the prefect start to the most amazing photos of you that you will cherish for years to come.



your hair should reflect YOU, and your own style. senior portraits are not a time to try new ‘looks’ for your hair that you do not normally do. any cuts or color should be done at least a week prior to your session to ensure they look their best. also, you can change up your hair during your session – add accessories, pull it up, curl it (time permitting), and more!

Do you photograph guys senior portraits? 
Absolutely!  We photograph almost as many guys as we do girls each year!  We love showing off the individual style of our guys, whatever it may be – fashion, sports, musical, urban, skateboarding, techy, whatever your style is we love to focus on having fun and showing off YOUR individual style.


Do I have to come in for a consultation?  Can’t I just book a session over the phone?
While we don’t require an in-person consultation, we do highly recommend it if you are new to our studio.  This way we can show you the studio, examples of our portrait art, and work with you one on one to select the perfect seniors by e session for your once-in-a-lifetime experience and get a session plan in place.

However, if coming in to the studio for a consultation is not an option, we can go over everything you need to know over the phone.  We want to ensure that your senior portrait session is everything you want and more, and we strive to make this experience one that you will never forget.


Do you photograph sessions in your studio or on location?
Both!  While our specialty is vibrant, in-studio portraiture, we also photograph seniors on location – from urban settings to vintage fields to custom locations, we create the senior experience that YOU want.

In our portrait studio we photograph indoors with fashion studio lighting – we want to make sure you have a variety of looks to show off your individual style.  On location we also photograph with numerous location lighting techniques – from fashion lighting to natural light and more.  Photography is the art of ‘painting with light,’ and our goal is to make you look incredible!


How many outfits can I bring?
As MANY as you like!  Our sessions are based on time, NOT on the number of outfits you are limited to.  In general, we can typically photograph 4-5 outfits per hour, however this is entirely dependent on you.  The more time you spend getting ready between outfits, the fewer outfits we will get to, and vice versa.

We encourage you to bring LOTS of options and accessories – we will assist you in selecting the best variety of looks to make your senior portrait session the best experience it can be. 


How long do you keep my image files?
Non-ordered images are removed from our system following your ordering appointment – we do not archive files which are not ordered.  All ordered images are archived for a period of 1 year.


I want to wear my hair two different ways – can I do that at my session?
of course! Our hair stylist can create the perfect look for you & mix it up if you like!

 We LOVE variety and love to show off your multiple styles.


Do you photograph yearbook headshots?
Check your school’s guidelines for yearbook headshots.  If you are allowed to select your own image to submit from your senior portrait session, then we can photograph any type of image that you would like for your yearbook. We will then submit your image when and where you direct us to send your chosen image.
