High School Senior Spotlight

Luizette | 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 High School Senior Clients all amazing young women!  This week’s Senior Spotlight is Luizette from Osceola Fundamental High School.  

Luizette chose this gorgeous couture skirt from our wardrobe to wear for her shoot – great choice! She also chose the Tampa Bay Beaches area of Madeira Beach as her outdoor location.  We used these fun, colored smoke sticks on the beach to add a whole lotta flare to her senior pictures!

Congratulations Luizette!  We’re proud to have you as a 2017/18 Senior Client!


Why I Love This Location:

In the beach setting, there are so many diverse options! There are many different beach options along the Tampa Bay Beaches for Senior Portraits, Family Portraits or even Headshots!  I love shooting early in the morning when there are less people and the morning light is soft and pastel colored.

Images can be captured highlighting your style, a favorite prop or we can get creative like we did with these colored smoke sticks or a large dress or skirt.  Beach portraits 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)
