Note: This year we will not be offering family, group or friend sessions in order to ensure social distancing and the safety of our employees and customers.
What’s Your Fashion Type?
Grad portraits feature you at your very best, and celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime milestone of graduation. So when you plan for your portrait session, think carefully about how to get that picture-perfect look you want. Browse through your closet and think of the types of outfits you feel great wearing. Are you bohemian or classic? Retro or rocker? Or do you like to play with surprising combinations for variety?
Rock Your Style and Think About Themes
Scroll through these style trends to see which look matches your personal style the best. Use the photos and descriptions to give you ideas for planning totally put-together looks. And get suggestions for formal-themed and athletic-style photos too. Plan to bring at least three complete outfits to your grad portrait session. Or, bring more if you like!
Flirty and Feminine
Keep it light and breezy in fit-and flare dresses, playful prints, fun accessories, headbands, bold lipstick, and tops or dresses with bow accents.
Think outdoor concerts and laid-back fun. Wear flowing maxi dresses, worn denim, tiered ruffle blouses, layered jewelry, and maybe a floppy hat for a little easy-going glamour.
Go modest, yet playful and never too conservative. Combine knee-length dresses with cinched waists, opaque tights, classic pumps, lush mascara, and hair curlers to top it off.
Take your style to the streets. Pair skinny capris with gauzy blouses and pointy pumps or peep toe heels. Finish off the look with simple jewelry.
Be bold, dress down, rock on. Mix up skinny jeans with vintage statement tees, ankle boots and silver jewelry, and complete the look with a bomber jacket you love.
Classic and Elegant
Keep it crisp and simple in tailored dresses, oxford shirts, plain tees, dark jeans, vests or blazers. Pull on knee-high riding boots or ballet flats and add pearl studs for subtle sophistication.
Combine surprising elements that you like, just because you like them. Try cowboy boots with a little black dress and colorful jewelry, or patterned pants with a satin blouse and animal print sandals.
Up and Gowned
Dress up in your favorite gown from a school dance and wear elegant sparkling jewelry for a timeless look. Or, borrow from trends including Flirty and Feminine, Classic and Elegant, and Retroglam for a fresh take on formal.
Show off your school pride and sports achievements. Wear your jersey and bring equipment like a ball, glove or field hockey stick to memorialize your run in high school athletics.
