Senior Guys

For the Guys:
Photographing guys is much different than photographing girls and we understand that. We’ll make you look like a guy, so relax. You won’t feel uncomfortable or have to do any awkward, girly posing. Use the list below to look smashing on your photo day.

Arrive early or on time to your appointment. Showing up late means you lose camera time, and we don’t want that.
As a general rule, guys are more complacent when it comes to photos. Even if it’s just for your mom, please come prepared. We (and mom) want you to look your best.

Dress in a style that expresses who you are, but dress nicely. If your style is a bit sloppy or you’re rather apathetic, have your mom, girlfriend, or other girls that are just friends help you. Trust us on this one.

Bring A LOT of options. The more clothes we have to choose from, the better. This will give us flexibility in matching your clothing to backgrounds and the surroundings.

Group your clothing together on hangers. Make sure items are free of wrinkles and ready to go. (Please don’t come everything stuffed into a gym bag like many guys have done.)

Bring black and/or dark gray t-shirts to wear under other shirts. White undershirts stick out and photograph poorly.

Avoid t-shirts with large graphics or logos. They distract from the main subject, which is you.

We don’t expect you to get as excited as the girls about shoes, but bring a variety of casual and dressier shoes. Avoid gym shoes or flip-flops since these will appear too casual when viewing your photos.
Please come to your session cleanly shaven. Retouching stubble costs extra and won’t look as good as a clean shave. If you have facial hair that your mom despises, do her a favor and shave it off. We promise it will grow back.

If you have longer hair, make sure it will stay out of your eyes during your session. Have it trimmed if necessary.

Don’t make any drastic changes like shaving your head or dying your hair around your session date. Otherwise you’ll look back at your photos and wonder “What was I thinking?”

They’re great! Bring props that help show who you are. Some popular choices are:

  • Sports equipment (football, basketball, baseball bat, etc.)
  • Sports uniforms
  • Musical instruments
  • Activity related items (dance, art, school clubs, etc.)
Friends or parents are welcome and often can be a help. However, it can be distracting if there are too many people around. Please bring only 2 or 3 people with you to your session.

Remember to give us a call if you have any questions! (424) 237-8378 Or you can always contact us on our facebook page as well!
