Senior Portrait Guide Make the Most of Your Session Congratulations Class of 2014! You’ve almost made it and when you walk through those doors again in September you will be a SENIOR! Taria Reed Photography has created THE SENIOR PORTRAIT GUIDE to assist you through this very important event in your life... your Senior portraits. This invaluable guide contains information that will let you know what to expect, answer questions and help you with what questions to ask. Feel free to check out Taria Reed Photography at www.TariaReed.com for more helpful info.
Pre-Portrait Consultations These complimentary, no obligation get-togethers are a great way to find out what T.R.P. is all about. Tour the studio, inside and out, discuss your likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, and view Taria’s “Best Of” images to give you ideas. We’ll explore clothing options and share ideas to create a session that truly reflects you. Most importantly, you will be relaxed, familiar and comfortable, knowing what a session is all about. This consult guarantees that you will get the best results.
Plan Ahead Think about who you are, what’s important to you and what you want to express in your Senior portraits. What’s your passion? Sports, music, hunting, computers, a favorite pet, or do you just think you deserve a variety of great images and special effects? Call us for ideas, or research our galleries online. Look at the different poses and backgrounds, and get inspired! Also think about what portraits you need for your family, friends, graduation, or for gifts for the coming year. And don’t forget yourself!
Clothes, Accessories Bring it all! Casual, formal and in-between. Remember shoes, jewelry, and accessories for each
outfit. Don’t forget that your images can represent ALL seasons despite the temperature outside. Try to have summer, winter and fall clothing to ensure you get a variety of looks and to go with all the varied background choices. Make sure to include what you can’t live without right now: a favorite tee, hoodie, jeans, hat, sunglasses, uniform, formal dress or shirt. Don’t forget your clothes for your Yearbook images too! Polish your nails, haircuts a week before look best, and be careful of suntan lines.
Clothing Colors Solid colors photograph best, but bring along stripes, solids and prints for some variety as well. Black looks good on everyone. Bring a variety of colors for the myriad of backgrounds and sets. Greens, browns, burgundy, navy, teal, and fuchsia photograph especially great. Choose colors that compliment your skin tone.
PROPS Props define what you are all about; your and hobbies. A friend, pet, your car, motorcycle, sports equipment, uniforms, trophies, books, instrument, hunting gear, computers, or siblings are always favorites. We’ll capture it all in a special way, and you’ll never pay extra.
WEATHER The one factor we can’t control. Don’t worry, even if it is pouring in the morning, it may clear up later in the day. If it’s a total washout, keep your appointment, we will photograph your indoor portion and reschedule the outdoors for another day. Don’t stress – we will always do what’s best for you.
SPECIAL EFFECTS We offer all the latest must-have trends in digital effects. Take your favorite images to a whole new level with photographic effects! These customized images insure your portraits are like NO ONE ELSE’S. GUARANTEED! Amazingly, we don’t charge extra for creating these exceptional images. We continually create and add more innovative offerings as each Senior inspires us. The possibilities are endless!

HAIR Avoid radically changing your hair before your session. Haircuts should be done a week before your session to look their best. If you color your hair, don’t forget your roots. Highlights should be touched up 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Quick, hair changes during your session are great, but make it easy and fast or you lose valuable camera time.
MAKE UP Go with your normal daytime look to start with- you can always add a little more when you get to the studio, but it’s hard to take off and have to start over. If you want a bit more of that superstar treatment we have access to amazing makeup
TANNING DO NOT over-do the tanning bed or sun. A three day rest from tanning is definitely recommended before your session.
Yearbook photos are due when you get back to school in September in most cases. Your yearbook advisor should mail or give you a “spec sheet” with all the information for your school’s yearbook requirements. Most yearbook images are sent electronically, however there may be some exceptions. We will send your yearbook images directly to the school so that you don’t have to worry about it
FREE RETOUCHING! Images come with Basic Retouching, so don’t worry about blemishes, under eye circles or stray hairs. They won’t exist after we work our magic! We also offer more extensive retouching including brace removal and more, for an additional fee.
