Senior Model Spotlight

Suzette | Osceola Fundamental High School

We live in such an awesome area for Senior Portraits: The Tampa Bay Beaches and St. Petersburg are in the palm of our hands.  Our seniors get to choose from our studio location or on location at white sand beaches, local parks, downtown St. Petersburg and more.
This year, our Senior Model Team are all amazing young women!  Our third Senior Model Spotlight is Suzette from Osceola Fundamental High School.  

Suzette is a young woman who is Fun and Creative! She would like to attend a New York university and eventually become a professional photographer! Way to go Suzette!
Suzette has a twin sister and is a hard worker.  In her spare time she likes to hang out with friends and assist on photo shoots. She also likes to go to the movies, go downtown or find a fun activity like bowling or rollerskating. She has participated on the Swim Team for 4 years!  One important accomplishment she has achieved has been getting a Congressional Award for one of her Images!
Three words that describe her are Goofy, Loud & Surprising.

Suzette chose this gorgeous dress from our wardrobe to wear for her shoot – great choice! She also chose the Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg as her outdoor location and our studio as her second location.  We used a parachute at the Sunken Gardens to add a whole lotta flare to her senior pictures!

Congratulations Suzette! Your hard work does not go unnoticed and we are proud to have you on our 2018 Senior Model Team!

Why I Love This Location:

In the studio setting, there are so many diverse options! We can get as creative as we want or be as simple as we want in my home studio in St. Petersburg, FL.

Images can be captured highlighting your style, a favorite prop or we can create magic by shooting on a plain backdrop and making photoshop magic!  Are you into sports? We can add your school colors and add a digital stadium backdrop to make you look larger than life! Are you into fashion? We can treat your shoot like an editorial spread and really show your style off! The possibilities are endless.

What to Wear:

I always recommend 3 types of outfits:
  • Casual (Think lounge wear, jeans and a tshirt or something comfortable you would wear on the weekend)

  • Trendy (Is there a Fashion trend that you love? Whether its fringe, skinny jeans or round sunglasses – this is a fun outfit that shows your personal style)

  • Formal/ Dressy (Want to wear that awesome dress that you have only worn once? Prom or homecoming dress that you looked amazing in? This outfit makes Mom happy and shows your dressy side)

*I have every Senior Portrait client start a Pinterest board so that we can both pin outfit, hair and makeup ideas prior to the session! This makes sure we are all on the same page.

Hair and Makeup Tips:

All Top Tier Senior Shoots come with professional hair and makeup services!

Our hair and makeup artist Daisy Ocasio typically recommends that seniors wash their hair the night before and blow dry their hair straight.

*Remember, drink plenty of water and get quality sleep in the weeks leading up to your session to be the best version of you for your portraits!

Things to Avoid:

  • Over Plucking eyebrows

  • Spray tans or tanning beds (do not get a spray tan or visit a tanning bed within the 2 weeks prior to your session)

  • Over whitening teeth (too white is not a good thing and looks unnatural in portraits)

  • Changing up your skin routine (last minute pimples, greasiness or dryness can occur when our skin PH is off)

  • Over treating pimples (this can cause them to get worse or dry out too fast which causes skin to peel)
