At Tara Draper Photography, my senior portraits are fresh, modern and timeless. I offer sessions that include professional hair and make-up, multiple locations, and plenty of outfit changes. I want you to feel and look your best for a lifetime of memories in your senior portraits. My style is fun, natural and bright. No need to worry about feeling shy or awkward in front of the camera as I will help pose you and make you comfortable in front of the camera, which will bring out your confidence. I love to bring out the best in each individual, and show them how beautiful they really are.
All of my senior sessions for girls include professional hair and makeup that is done in my studio located in Wisconsin Dells about an hour before the photoshoot starts. We will shoot around the Wisconsin Dells/Lake Delton area and do a few in studio portraits as well. The best time for photos is about 2 hrs. before sunset.
We will set up a ½ hour pre-consult that you will be able to bring in several of your outfits, and we can talk about your personal style and ideas for the shoot. Remember to dress for your body type in outfits that you feel comfortable in.
Feel free to bring several outfits to in a variety of colors and textures. Think about what your favorite colors are and what you look your best in. Bring layers, jackets, sweaters, ect. It is awesome to be able to throw something over an original outfit, to give another look in just a few seconds. We will usually photograph four or five outfits. Remember to include different styles, anywhere from classic to boho, elegant, sporty, dressy, ect. Check all of your clothing ahead of time and transport your outfits on hangers to prevent wrinkles. Try to shy away from super busy prints or neon colors.
Remember the Accessories
The more accessories, the better! Remember to bring accessories for all outfits, from footwear to jewelry and hair accents. Bring bold accessories such as shoes, boots, heels, jewelry, sunglasses, hats, scarves etc. Accessories can add so much character to an image. Even if you think they don’t match, bring them! You will be surprised how well different accessories photograph.
Bring a family member or friend
The majority of the sessions are on location, and to have several outfit changes can be a bit cumbersome, but 99% of the time, you will be able to change in the car or the outside in a secluded area. I will be driving to all the locations, and usually my car is FULL of props, so if a family member or friend can drive, it helps us to get to more locations = more photos!
Grab a little lip gloss
All senior sessions include professional hair and make up, but lips can always use a touch up. I will have gloss at all times, but feel free to bring your own special color.
Clean up your nails
Make sure your hands and toes are presentable.
Like shoes, hands can show up in some of your favorite poses, so be sure to take the time to make them presentable – guys should trim their nails, and girls might need to touch up their manicure.
Practice those smiles
I will help pose you down to the last finger, but it helps to practice your facial expressions in front of a mirror at home, before you go to the photo shoot. You can try various smiles, serious but relaxed looks, and animated expressions for action shots.
And Most important! HAVE FUN!!
