The Happy Anniversary Experience at Studio B Portraits featuring the Hanson’s

I have legitimately talked about this couple and their anniversary shoot more than I can count. I seriously love "love" and for those of us that have been heart-ing the same human for a long time... it's even more special so celebrating with a “happy anniversary” session is pretty awesome.

Here’s how to boss your Senior Style with our Top Four Style Inspirations:

No. 1 | SUIT UP   That suit you purchased for prom? Give it another opportunity to shine by taking one of your four outfits formal for your Senior Photos. Whether in studio for a GQ-inspired look or taking to the streets for a fresh spin, level up by rocking your suit with confidence.   Pro Tip: Have your suit tailored to perfection before your shoot. Now THAT is what I call you on your best day!

Pro Tip: Have your suit tailored to perfection before your shoot. Now THAT is what I call you on your best day!

No. 2 | TOTAL BALLER   You kill it on the court - now it’s time to bring your A-game to your photoshoot! I love the way a letterman jacket reps your school pride while giving a nod to the hours you’ve poured into your sport.   Pro Tip: From footballs to basketballs and everything in between, bring a prop to give a shout out to your sport without having to wear athletic gear.

No. 3 | UPSCALE CASUAL   Keep your style statement bold by wearing a unique jacket to tie your outfit together. From a slick leather jacket to a classic navy sport coat, the possibilities to level up with your outerwear are endless. While often an afterthought, I firmly believe a well-fitted, trendy jacket is a staple to the upscale casual wardrobe inspiration.   Pro Tip: A neutral jacket is a great way to keep an outfit timeless, giving you the flexibility to wear stylized cuffed pants or a sharp turtleneck!

No. 4 | CONTEMPORARY PREP   Prep is not dead. Let me say it louder for the people in the back - we LOVE a fresh approach to the classic trend. A white polo, a sweater over a button down shirt, a stylized scarf…it’s music to our ears.   Pro Tip: For the fellas who would rather stick to something over stylized, this is the look for you!

Field of Dreams for Summer Senior Portraits with Starlyn | Issaquah WA

It was a field of photogenic dreams for Summer Senior Pictures during Starlyn’s Senior Portrait session. Inspired by all things nature, we took advantage of everything Sammamish can deliver in summertime goodness. Of course the perfect sunshine paled in comparison to miss Starlyn’s model-rific vibes! Talk about P for Professional…this Issaquah High School senior was serving up looks that would make any supermodel proud!

A thousand heart eyes for the pretty pop of pink that Starlyn incorporated through the roses in her hair! Swoon. Worthy. Hat’s off to the ingenuity of this floral headpiece - the simplicity of being able to take it on and off made for a unique bonus to her already fabulous outfit.

(Cut to us model walking with a behind the scenes sneak peek of you killing it on the catwalk) Seriously, we love celebrating this huge accomplishment in your life and we can’t think of anything more special than creating beautiful portraits that will literally be the most valuable thing you own one day. As we are kicking off a new Senior Season, we thought you might find it helpful to have a few of our best suggestions for stepping up your senior picture game.

Meet Rishika. At 5’9 this  Forest Ridge  beauty is the absolute definition of high school senior supermodel.

Clothes Horse-ing around: Bring more than you think you’ll need. Roll in with a suit case full of style ideas and you might just be our new best friend. Honestly, too many options is a great problem to have. Give some thought to your favorite and most flattering styles but be prepared to embrace the art of playing “dress up”

Ring around the Pose-y: We are going to move, bend and snap like nothing you’ve ever seen and the fact that no one does this stuff in real life is just icing on your model-rific cake. Since we create a book from almost every photo shoot, all of these angles, expressions and changes make for a great experience and super interesting page-turner.

The Great Outdoors: Whether we’re glamping or city slicking, half of your senior session is photographed outside with a decidedly model-inspired twist so feel free accessorize with coats, sunglasses, and any thing that makes you feel particularly fabulous.

Best senior pictures_Studio B Portraits_0300.jpg

Pin(terest) until your heart is content: Pinterest, fashion magazines and hashtags on Instagram are a great way to quickly find an eclectic array of style ideas and session inspiration. Be sure to save them on your phone and bring them to your session so we can collaborate on your vision.

The More the Merrier: Bring your Mom or your most favorite person to cheer you on and have your back (and sometimes your front) for a trusted on set style partner/hype person. Plan for about 90 minutes of hair & make-up, followed by a 90 minute photo shoot.

Show Us Your Wall: Decorating with Family Portraits featuring the Johnsons

Full disclosure, I have zero hobbies… none (unless going to the Bellevue Square candy shop is considered a thing.) And before you mention spending time with my family and friends, let me stop you right there and say - NOPE not a hobby, does not count because what I like to do with them is take their pictures (just ask them, I’m obsessed) I’m either taking a picture or thinking about taking a picture… with a follow up of making something from the pictures (books, framed portraits, wall series… seriously it’s endless.) Luckily for my clients, my obsession is your good fortune because it’s equally awesome whether I’m doing it for you or for myself. Cut to this fabulous Show Us Your Wall share featuring the family portraits we created featuring the Johnsons.

So many smiles and snuggles for this Spring session, we just had to make this wall-worthy moment something special that they could enjoy every day. PC:  StudioBportraits.com

Art of the Pose: Beautiful posing inspiration for your Senior Pictures Session

Can we talk about the art of the pose? Senior Pictures posing that is!

It’s our job to help you look and feel amazing in front of the camera so not to worry… we’ve got you covered.

2019-06-20_0003.jpg
