What To Wear To Your Summer Senior Session//Outfit Ideas+Other Tips//Northern Colorado Senior Photographer

Getting your senior pictures taken is always such a fun time. You get to plan out your location, get all dolled up, and of course-buy a new outfit or two! I remember when I had my senior pictures done, I was stressing out about what to wear for weeks. Do you have this same problem? Well, don’t worry because I got you! I’m going to give you some perfect summer outfit ideas & tips for your senior session so you can feel like your most beautiful and confident self!

Dress for the season:

If you live here in Northern Colorado, you know how hot it can get. Sometimes the heat is almost unbearable. For this reason, it’s always a great idea to have a cute summer dress as part of your outfit options. Some cute sandals and a nice denim jacket (depending on the dress) and long dangly jewelry would go great with a summer dress! Here are some dresses and colors that look gorgeous with Colorado’s beautiful mountain backdrop.

One quick note, with the sweltering heat in Colorado this time of year, make sure that you are conscious about the foundation and other makeup you’ll be wearing. Whenever the sun is out, I start to sweat, so if you’re like me, make sure you set your makeup with a setting spray before your session so you don’t sweat your makeup off during your pics! Better yet, get your hair and makeup professionally done so it will withstand the elements.

Let your personality shine, girl!

One of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing an outfit for your senior session is to stay true to who you are. If wearing dresses isn't your thing, then don’t wear a dress. If your thing is 80’s windbreakers, wear that for a few shots. If you are most confident in a pair of platform heels, do it! It’s always better to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing, so that you can let your true self shine through in the pictures!

Bring props:

Senior pictures are all about capturing who you are at this specific time in your life. Bring along some props that highlight who you are! If you’re a musician, bring your instrument! If you run track, bring along your spikes! If you lettered in a sport or academics, bring your letterman's jacket along for a few pics! Props make for a fun and creative session!
