These photographs immortalize the culmination of years of hard work and growth, capturing the essence of the individual as they stand on the cusp of adulthood.

When it comes to senior portraits, every detail matters – from the location and lighting to the outfits you choose to wear. With Amelia J. Moore Photography behind the lens, you can trust that your senior portraits will be nothing short of extraordinary.

You’ll have time for 4-5 outfits at the Signature Session and 2 at the Mini Session. To help you prepare for your session, here are four stunning outfit style that are sure to make you shine:

Classic Elegance:

For a timeless look that never goes out of style, opt for a classic ensemble. A simple yet sophisticated option could be a knee-length A-line dress in a solid color such as navy blue or burgundy. Pair it with nude heels or ballet flats for an effortless touch of elegance. Black and/or white are always classic and make the skin glow! Or bring your formal dress. Keep accessories minimal with delicate jewelry – perhaps a pendant necklace or stud earrings – to let your natural beauty take center stage.

Boho Chic:

Embrace your free-spirited side with a bohemian-inspired outfit that exudes laid-back charm. Consider pairing a flowy maxi dress in a floral or geometric print with ankle boots for a boho-chic vibe. Layer on some earthy accessories like stacked bracelets or a statement pendant necklace to add a personalized touch to your look. Complete the ensemble with loose, tousled waves or a braided hairstyle for a whimsical flair.

Bold Sophistication:

Bold Sophistication exudes confidence, elegance, and a fearless attitude. It’s about making a statement with every outfit choice, whether through striking silhouettes, vibrant colors, or daring accessories. Take a risk and push the boundaries of traditional fashion norms. Combines classic pieces with unexpected twists, creating looks that are both timeless and cutting-edge. From tailored blazers paired with leather pants to vibrant jumpsuits accessorized with statement jewelry, reflect your sense of self-expression and individuality.


Showcase your edgy side with a fashion-forward ensemble that reflects your individuality. Start with a pair of distressed jeans or faux leather leggings as the foundation of your look. Layer on a graphic tee or a band-inspired tank top for a dose of urban cool. Elevate the outfit with a statement jacket – perhaps a moto jacket or a denim jacket adorned with patches or studs. Complete the look with chunky boots or sneakers and accessorize with bold jewelry or a sleek belt bag for an extra edge.

Moore Photography will expertly capture your unique personality and style, ensuring that your senior portraits are a true reflection of who you are at this pivotal moment in your life.

  • Bring spandex shorts to wear under your dress as you will be in a variety of poses.
  • Choose a variety of colors. Chances are you wardrobe pallet is made up of similar colors.
  • Don’t pick things that are too tight or too loose. Loose clothing is super comfy, but it will look even bigger in a photograph. If you have a baggy bottom, wear something tighter on top.
  • Bring shoes (and socks!) and accessories for your outfits. 
  • A jacket, sweater, wrap or fun blanket, something for layers and movement. (optional)
  • TRY ON EVERYTHING before the day of the shoot.
  • A prop or activity – your car, a musical instrument or special pet. (optional)
  • Please iron everything (if needed) and hang them on hangers. 
  • Under garments: nude options unless you have a bralette that will be showing. Bring a strapless bra or sticky boobs. 
  • Jeans go with anything, bring for a back up option!
  • Accessories – Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, etc.
  • No need to self tan prior! I promising your skin will glow!
  • If you color your hair, plan a fresh color a few days prior. Roots are hard to photoshop!
