How to Accessorize Your Photoshoot

Planning out your outfits for a photo shoot is very important because you want to make sure the pictures capture you and your style. Outfits need accessories to build them up into a more fashionable look, so it is very important that they are included in the preparation for a photo shoot. When planning out my outfits for my Senior Shoot I came up with the 4 Prep Steps. I made a collage to help show a variety of different accessory categories that can make a difference in a shoot.

4 prep steps

1. Hats and headbands make the shoot more fun by giving you more posing options. They can transform your outfit and allow you to play with different styles.
2. Bags and purses help with tying the whole look together and shows a bit more of your personal style.
3. Jewelry is very important because it dresses up the outfits and make them look more put together. Always bring a variety of pieces that can go with different outfits so you can switch them up and have more choices to work with.
4. Sunglasses are fun to use in photo shoots because they look cool and can be worn in different ways.

Have fun planning your outfits and remember to include accessories/props because they really make a difference and give you more to work with.

I am so thrilled to announce that we have a new Style Intern this semester – Gabriella Garza! Ever since I photographed her senior portraits back in April 2014, Gabriella and I have remained good friends.  She’s very much like a little sister to me.  Her positivity, maturity, and natural fashion sense made her the perfect candidate for this internship.  Every monday, she’ll be putting together collages of outfit inspirations to help you plan your own stylish senior portrait wardrobe.

 

As part of Gabriella’s introduction, I’ve asked her to fill out a fun little magazine quiz, so that you can get to know her better.

In addition, you can check out Gabriella’s personal blog and instagram, where she posts some of her daily inspirations.
