1. Bring a Friend

Having a friend or family member with you can make the experience more enjoyable and less stressful. They can help you feel more comfortable, and their presence can bring out genuine smiles and laughter.

2. Choose Comfortable Outfits

Wear outfits that make you feel good and reflect your personality. When you feel comfortable and confident in your clothing, it shows in your photos. Bring a few options to the shoot so you can choose what feels best on the day.

3. Bring Fun Props That Are True to You

Props can add a personal touch to your photos and help you feel more relaxed. Bring items that are meaningful to you, like sports equipment, musical instruments, or anything that represents your hobbies and interests. These props can also make the shoot more fun and engaging.

4. Practice Posing

Before your session, practice some poses in front of a mirror. This can help you feel more familiar with how you look and move. Simple, natural poses often work best, so don’t worry about getting it perfect. If you do not want to practice poses, that ok because we will be helping with that anyway!

5. Focus on the Fun

Try to focus on the fun aspects of the shoot rather than worrying about how you look. Think about the exciting milestone you're celebrating and the memories you're creating. We’re here to capture your genuine joy and laughter.

6. Trust Your Photographer

Trust in our experience and expertise. At Kate Buckles Photography, we’ve worked with many seniors who felt nervous at first. We’ll guide you through the process, giving you simple directions and making sure you feel at ease every step of the way.

7. Take Deep Breaths

If you start to feel anxious, take a few deep breaths to calm your nerves. Remember that it’s normal to feel a little nervous, but we’re here to help you look and feel your best.

8. Embrace the Moment

Embrace this special time in your life. Senior photos are a celebration of your achievements and the exciting future ahead. Let your personality shine through, and don’t be afraid to show your true self.

At Kate Buckles Photography, our goal is to create a relaxed and enjoyable experience for you, capturing beautiful images that reflect who you are. Just show up, and we’ll help you with everything else, ensuring your photoshoot is filled with delicate moments, joy, and laughter. We can’t wait to capture this special milestone with you!
