    Your senior portraits are incredibly important. Aside from candids with friends and your yearbook photos, these are the pictures youre going to look to remember your years in high school.

    When youre 30 and decide to take a peek at your high school portraits, instead of thinking Oh my gosh! What was I thinking wearing that [insert ugly clothing item here]?!, Bousquet Photography wants you to look back at your photos and still love what youre wearing and be proud.

    Weve put together the ultimate guide of what to wear, how to wear your hair and what type of make-up to wear just for our awesome clients!

    WHAT TO WEAR: SENIORS TIPS ON CHOOSINGYOUR OUTFIT

    STAY AWAY FROM TRENDY ITEMS (EX: OVERALLS, PLATFORM SNEAKERS, CROP TOPS) Trust me, Im all for awesome trends, but trends are called trends for a reasonthey wont always be in style. When you take your senior photos, you want to be pictured in something that is classic and timeless so you wont look back at your senior photos and think Why the heck did I wear overalls?!

    1.

    2.BE YOURSELF. Yes, its incredibly corny and youre probably laughing at me for saying that, but its so true! These are your senior pictures! You want to remember you for who you really were in high school. Dont wear mainstream brand clothing if you totally hate it. Wear a vintage dress you found in your grandmothers closet and are obsessed with be-cause if thats you, then show it off!

    3.DRESS FOR THE SEASON. If youre taking your photos in summer, please dont wear a winter coat. It just doesnt make sense! :)

    SENIOR STYLE GUIDE

    Dresses are perfect for girls who are taking their senior photosespecially in the summer. Theyre light, airy and girly and you can totally have fun with them!

    If you choose to wear a dress with a pattern on it, make sure the accessories that you pair with it are simple. We dont want to distract to much from YOU since youre the main focus of the photo shoot.

    If your dress is strapless, grab something simple that you can throw on top like a plain, white denim vest or jacket. Its best to have layers so you can take some photos wearing the dress with the jacket/vest and some without just incase you dont like how one or the other photographs.

    If you choose to wear a solid colored dress, this will give you more room to play with accessories. Remember those AMAZING embellished shoes you bought last summer? You can totally wear those with a simple, plain-colored dress. Grab a chunky necklace to match the sandals and a great nail polish to match and youre ready to pose!

    TIP: When matching accessories, try to stick to just gold or just silver instead of mixing and matching. It will present a more put-together and prepared look.

    Maxi dresses are just plain old awesome. Theyre perfect if youre a more bohemian, free spirit type of person. And they come in tons of different solid colors or patterns.

    When wearing a patterned maxi dress, same rules apply: try to limit your accessories to plain colors so you dont distract too much from yourself.

    If you choose to wear a solid colored maxi dress, try to stick to 2-3 colorsthe color of your maxi dress, the color of your accessories and the gold/silver/copper of your jewelry.

    Maxi dresses look amazing with gladiator sandals and something with a small heel to make you look taller. But, these kind of dresses also have the power to make you loose the shape of your body. If you want to show off your waist and add some shape into your ward-robe, try pairing your maxidress with a belt around your waist.

    Its totally cool to keep things classic and simple for your senior por-trati session by wearing denim jeans. Sometimes jeans are just the comfortable thing to wear which is totally fine.

    When choosing to wear denim jeans, keep in mind that now your top will most likely become the main attraction. The best thing to do so that the attention is focused on you would be to keep your top a simple color, but try a cool texture like lace or velvet.

    You can pair your plain top and jeans with a cool pair of exciting shoes and a matching necklace to add a little spice!

    Since its summer, its great to wear bright colors. If youre a bright person, you should definitely incorporate bright colors into your outfit for your senior portraits.

    Bright colors are awesome, but make sure that you incorporate them in moderation so you dont show over do it. Remember you want to wear something youll be proud of in 20 years.

    When wearing bright pants, try pairing them with a top that incor-porates some of the same colors as your pants. Make sure that your shoes and accessories are a neutral color that coordinates with your top and pants.

    I absolutely love when people wear bright skirts for senior photos. Its the perfect amount of color to incor-porate into your outfit.

    If you choose to wear a bright skirt, definitely stick with a plain colored top. Black or white works the best. You can always throw on an embellished necklace with colors the same as your skirt to make things exciting. Again, make sure that your accessories all match and are neutral colored.

    TIP: Wearing a skirt is something you should totally con-sider when choosing your outfit, but make sure its long enough because you will be doing some photos sitting down as well as standing.

    If you know me personally, you know that Im all for a leather jacket. In fact, its probably the most worn item in my wardrobe. If youre the same type of person, I definitely suggest incorporating a leather jacket into the outfit you take your senior photos in.

    Jackets are great because you have the ability to take them off and put them on. This leaves us with a ton more opportunity to use the jacket as a prop in your photos.

    When choosing to wear a leather jacket, Id sug-gest pairing it with a more girly outfit. Maybe throw your jacket on over a dress or with a pastel top and white jeans.

    The first thing I think of when I think summer clothing is denim shorts. Whether theyre white, denim, black or a mix of all, jean shorts are great for senior photos.

    With denim shorts, you can really wear anything on top. I really like when people keep the top simple and decorate with accessories, but it can really go so many different directions.

    TIP: Make sure theyre not too short. Sometimes when shorts are too short or tight, they wont photograph well. Try your shorts on and have someone take a photo of you with them on to make sure youre 100% comfortable with the way they photograph.

    WHAT TO WEAR: GUYS

    Patterned shorts are truly all over every store right now. While its not the best idea to wear something thats too trendy, these actually make for great photos.

    Similar to what youd wear with a patterned skirt or pants, try and keep the top simple. You can always wear a more decorative shoe or necklace to add a little spice to your outfit, but make sure that you dont overdo it by wearing a patterned top with your patterned shorts.

    Its also a really good idea to make sure that your nails are done and not chipped or cracked. Remember, you only get to take your senior photos once! (Perfect excuse to get a manicure)

    If were being honest, guys, you have it pretty easy when it comes to choosing what to wear to your senior photo appointment.

    Cargo shorts seem to be the most popular option for my male clients for sum
