TIPS:

  1. Grooming is always encouraged - pampering your pet makes them look and feel their best on camera.

  2. Leash and kennel are an excellent way to make sure that you have a minute to focus on your self before, during and after the session as needed.

  3. Plan for treats and be sure to let the studio know if you have any special needs. Be certain to give us a heads up if your fur baby has any physical restrictions or personality points that we should be aware of in advance of your shoot. ie Likes Mom Best, Teething, Bad Hip.

Finally… do not leave your husband (below) to play with your props, your middle child and your 20 year old cat.

When Senior Portraits Meets Old Hollywood Charm

Riddle me this: what do you get when you combine the epic debonair style of Old Hollywood with contemporary charm?

Answer: a Senior Portrait Experience that will go down in history!

When Fabiano walked in to the Studio, we were immediately impressed with his confidence and enthusiasm. This Issaquah High School senior was rocking a Cary Grant inspired wardrobe, and we knew this was going to be a shoot to remember. Talk about a lights, camera, action moment!

Fabi’s navy blue suit, classic white dress shirt, and trendy bow tie combo is the perfect spin on Old Hollywood charm! When thinking of your own wardrobe, choose pieces that are well-tailored…not only does this present flawlessly, but it also keeps things more comfortable for you (assuming a suit isn’t your daily attire…comfort is key, even when making an epic impression;)

OUTFIT 01. Your senior portraits will be taken to a whole new level of sophistication when you step out in your favorite gown, looking like you just might belong in next year’s Hollywood edition of Vanity Fair. This stunning Issaquah High School senior took our breath away in her delicate cream colored dress!

Pro Tip: keep the preparation for your Vanity Fair attire simple by re-wearing your favorite homecoming dress or prom gown! You deserve another chance to shine in one of those favorite dresses!

OUTFIT 02. Sammie kept one of her outdoor looks styled in black and white for a city chic vibe, pairing an adorable peplum top with white jeans and street style black booties. These simple choices allowed for fun pops of color in her background, which allowed all eyes to stay on this senior stunner!

Pro Tip: when you keep your outfit colors neutral, it gives even more opportunity to play around with fun textures and silhouettes!

OUTFIT 03. Boho meets contemporary with this third outfit, and we are in love! This gal knew that this deep shade of blue would compliment her hair and skin fabulously. And can we just give a shout out to that Beyonce breeze though Sammie’s hair. Flawless.

Pro Tip: Sammie wore the same chic pair of white denim for both looks two and three, and the variety in tops allowed each outfit to be independently unique! Repeating base items among looks can cut down on the number of clothing items you bring while still being able to rock it!

OUTFIT 04. Sophisticated simplicity is the key to Sammie’s final outfit! This look aired on a cute and casual side, giving fun variety and depth to her four wardrobe choices. Sometimes your favorite pair of denim and a fun blouse is just what you need to know you are a 10/10!

Pro Tip: bringing a prop adds a personalized flair to your Senior Portrait Experience!

Some seniors care...or at least their moms do! | Studio B Seniors Style Guide for Boys

Don’t let choose four wardrobe options overwhelm you - we’ve laid out four of our favorite looks as a quick style guide for you as your prepare for your Senior Portrait Experience. Keep reading to make prepping for your Senior Portraits a piece of cake!

OUTFIT 01. Who doesn’t love a fella in FORMAL?! You just can’t underestimate the powerful impression of a custom tailored suit. We love the way Jake brought his A-game with this look, incorporating his passion for baseball with this classy look took it to the next level!

Studio B Senior_senior boy sports portraits.jpg

OUTFIT 02. You can never go wrong when you go UPSCALE CAUSAL. Jake’s collared shirt and pullover create a visually interesting style with layers and textures. Classy but more relaxed than his first look, this one is a winner!

Studio B Seniors_handsome boy in sweater senior portrait.jpg

OUTFIT 03. SCHOOL SPIRIT has never looked so good! We love that Jake was able to represent O’Dea High School through his letterman jacket - this is a timeless look that throughout the years will be a fun nod to your high school career!

Studio B Seniors_senior boy with letterman jacket issaquah.jpg

OUTFIT 04. There’s a reason why CLASSIC always results in confidence. Will you be shocked to hear that most senior boys feel most comfortable in front of the camera wearing an outfit inspired by their everyday attire? One of the awesome aspects of having four wardrobe changes within your Senior Portrait Experience is that you can rock that classic tee that brings out the color of your eyes while still making mom thrilled that you jazzed it up for her with a more formal vibe in another outfit. Talk about the best of both worlds!

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.

Studio B Portraits_Senior Pictures in downtown Bellevue_0384.jpg

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!

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!

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.
