Sometimes a little checklist is just what you need as you are running out the door to your senior session. Check out this senior session checklist to make sure you are ready to rock your senior session.
1. Outfits – How to Pack for Success
This one probably feels pretty obvious but here are some tips to make the most of packing your outfits.
- Wear your first outfit on the way to your session. If you are not sure what to wear first, come in something easy to change out of.
- Pack your clothes in a garment bag or hanging. It might be tempting to throw them all in a duffle bag, but that can cause unwanted wrinkling and makes it harder to find what you are looking for.
- Use zipper bags or other easily organized containers to keep your accessories for each outfit organized and easy to access.
BONUS OUTFIT TIP: For my signature senior session, I recommend 4 outfits. Pick a casual outfit, a dressy outfit, something that shows off your personality (sports outfit, etc.), and something bold.

2. Touch Up Makeup
Bring along a loose powder to absorb any sweat, some extra lip gloss, and any other applicable makeup you may want to touch up in case of sweat or accidentally rubbing off when changing, etc.

3. Comfy Shoes
It’s always a good idea to bring along a pair of comfy shoes. Sometimes we do a little walking to and from locations around the farm and surrounding areas and it’s nice to have a pair of flip flops or other easy-to-slip-on comfy shoes to wear rather than your cute heels.
4. Water & Snacks
There is nothing worse than the mid-photoshoot munchies. Modeling is hard work and having some of your favorite snacks on hand can help keep your energy up for the whole session. (Not sure how long of a session you need, check out this article: How Long Should My Senior Session Be?)
