3 Tips to Prep for your Senior Session

I get a lot of seniors (even parents too) who come to me nervous about their session day. Not about the pictures, but more of the preparation for the day. They ask me,

“What if I forget something?!”
“I don’t know what to bring?!”

Well, the following list should help ease your mind while you get ready for your big day!

#1. Put each full outfit on ONE hanger.
This helps you see your clothes put together as whole collections instead of just pieces. This will help you see if you’re missing anything on each outfit. It will also allow you to see if you have too many outfits that are similar in color or style!

#2. Start a senior session Pinterest board.
Include ideas for makeup and hair inspiration. You can even create sections with outfits that you already have. When you book with Lindsey Bini Photography , you get multiple looks, so this will help remind you of the different varieties you like.

#3. Pair your accessories with each outfit.
This is one of the most forgotten items for session day. Include a Ziploc bag of accessory pouch for EACH outfit so you know what jewelry goes with each different outfit.
Don’t forget: Necklaces, earrings, rings. You can even put things like socks, cufflinks, sunglasses – things of this nature that go with each one!

#BONUS: The last thing you’ll want to do is pack an EMERGENCY KIT!
“Emergency Kit, I didn’t even think of that!?” When you are a Lindsey Bini Photography Senior, I actually have all of these items ready to go!
What is inside my emergency bag?

  • Bug Spray
  • Fashion Tape
  • Petal Stickers
  • Sewing Kit
  • Safety Pins & normal pins
  • Shout Wipes

  • Manicure items (nail clipper, file, ect)
  • Lash Glue
