Seniors

Hey Senior Eastsiders, we’ve got all your Senior Pictures city style right here

(READ FIRST: A note before we begin - So in the spirit of binge watching Netflix and celebrating the 11 year anniversary of Gossip Girl, it’s important that you read this entire post as narrated with the "Gossip Girl” voice in your head! - Okay GO!)

Hey Seattle Eastsiders. Studio B here… and we have the biggest news ever. Looks like the rising trend in Senior Portraits is a city chic vibe. Don’t believe us? See for yourselves. Lucky for us, we have proof.

Spotted: senior stunner Sophia.

What is this beauty doing strolling the streets of Downtown Bellevue?

Word is Sammamish High School senior Sophia was rocking the spotlight for her Senior Portraits, turning heads wherever she went. We have a lot to learn from our senior stunner. Here are just a few of our favorite lessons learned.

01. When it’s time to celebrate in style… know your style! Sophia wanted a city vibe as far from the rolling hills and wheat fields as she could get! She opted for our Signature Senior Experience and let the fabulous streets of downtown Bellevue be her runway for the day! She hit the museum, a little fun in the fountain, and quick coffee break on her stroll over the skybridge to the W Hotel.

02. The Rule of Thirds. Be sure to add a third item to layer into your look. The dazzle is in the details, my loves so accessorize always. Grab your handbag , toss in a little leather to add some sass and don’t forget to dress head to toe with your favorite footwear. We love Sophia’s Louis Vuitton tote and Gucci belt and oh-my-gosh the shoes… can we please give a quick curtsy to her shoe game on each and every look)

03. Trust your tresses to the Professional hair and makeup masters. Sophia began her Senior Experience with time spent at Gene Juarez Bravern. There is a reason why professional hair and makeup artists are masters of their art - just look at Sophia’s curls! A little luxury goes a long way and remember these pictures are forever so go on…you know you deserve it!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: On Trend Street Style

Talk about a jaw-dropping, stop-and-stare, oh-so-stunning Class of 2019 beauty...miss Sami is always a delight to photograph!  You might recognize this Eastlake High senior from our Model Team Brand Influencer program, and once again she blew us away!

We might affectionately nickname Sami the Queen of Chic.  This gal's fashion game is always on point!  We love her black and white striped pants paired with her adorable off the shoulder on-trend crop top.

Let's also not forget to mention the stacked sandal making a statement this senior season - it's vying for equal billing with the oh-so-hot birkenstock (yes, the birk is back)

Why Your Senior Experience Deserves Better Than a Snapchat Filter...

Okay everyone, real talk: Snapchat is great (who doesn't love a good voice changing filter, I mean c'mon??) but what makes your Senior Portrait Experience different than simply taking fun photos with friends? 

Best of Studio B Girls Beach Chic Senior Portraits.jpg

I. Camera ready hair and makeup = no filters needed!  Not only does it feel simply divine to be pampered while a professional hair and makeup artist styles you to perfection, but the expertise and tools of the artist will allow your natural beauty to shine in a way that reads beautifully on camera.

II.  Four wardrobe changes allow for creativity and expression!  Your Senior Portraits are about capturing your spirit in this season of life, and fashion is such a fun way to make a statement.  From fabulously formal to street chic, there is room for you to express all sides of your rockin' personality!

III. One day your kids will flip through your book of all your favorite portraits and say "Wow, mom was a BABE when she was my age!"  You can store a memory in Snapchat for awhile, but you can remember the thrill of your Senior Year forever when you reminisce through your favorite images. (I know, I know - I sound like I'm a thousand years old, but one day you'll appreciate letting your kids rave about you...hehe)

When it's time to celebrate all you have accomplished, it's time to make it special.   Let us spoil you!

Senior Pictures for Boys and how to find a photographer that loves them as much as you

When I tell you that Studio B specializes in photographing high school senior boys (and grown up men that act like boys) does it make you want to cry with tears of joy?  Excellent. You've come to the right place because this article - "Senior Pictures for Boys and how to find a photographer that loves them as much as you do" was almost going to be titled...

For the fellas who come in simply because they love their mothers and they have a yearbook deadline (basically 99% of senior boys), there is a moment in almost every session where the tide shifts.  It is a sneak attack realization by your son that they look GOOD and being in the spotlight isn't the worst way to spend their day..some might even admit to you that they are having FUN! 

To help you, help him, we have created an extensive Style and Prep Magazine that we'll snail mail to you after you book your senior pictures session. This full color, 24 page guide includes clothing ideas, samples for backgrounds, unique prop ideas (cars, canines + cats - OH MY) and inspiration for creating an amazing Senior Pictures Experience for your son.

Beautiful book designs from your portrait session

How do you keep a memory as sweet as the moment itself?  This is a question we ask ourselves on a daily basis.  It is why we do what we do!  It is why we create something unique and magical for displaying your memories from every portrait session. 

We know there is not only ONE correct answer to this question, but one of our favorite ways to tell your story is through a Portfolio Book of your favorite photos.  Curious to peek inside one of these beauties?  Check out this fabulous book from Brynn and Garrett's prom inspired portrait session in the video below, and keep reading for our top 3 reasons why we love Portfolio Books!

I. The variety of poses and expressions included in your book makes it a powerful storyteller.

II.  Each book is custom designed in house to create a unique layout of the images you love.

III.  Portfolio Books are a fabulous coffee table accessory, and their portability makes them easy to take while traveling to show relatives who live farther away.

 Talk about a dreamboat couple!  We had so much fun with Brynn and Garrett...we already can't wait until next time!
