Senior Feature

Katie - Iowa City West High class of 2019

Katie chose the PERFECT time of year to have her Luxe senior portrait session; mid October can have some of the best weather and all the leaves have started changing. Not to mention that sun sets a bit earlier giving us the perfect timing to get the most amazing golden sunlit images for the grand finale. After hair and makeup at Zen Salon and Spa by Frankie we started out with some subtle Iowa Hawkeye vibes.

After that we got a little more edgy with a off-the-shoulder top, army green pants and heels. We ventured down a grungy ally and found some bright red chairs downtown Iowa City.

Sometimes less is more, so we looked for a simple urban spot to go with her all black outfit with pink heels.

Next we wanted to look for a more modern location to go with her romper and cardigan outfit so we headed to a new hotel close to downtown. Since the Luxe session comes with 6 outfits that means we drive to a few different areas of town to achieve a variety of looks and feels for each outfit.

And of course I had to take Katie to a parking garage. They are my favorite places to photograph and the blue tones compliment each other perfectly!

And lastly we ended up in a field of super tall grass and trees while the sun was going down casting a beautiful golden light on the whole area. We saved Katie’s favorite outfit for this spot and it was EPIC!

Katie - Thanks for an amazing senior session. You killed it and got some truly beautiful images. I can’t wait to see where you go in life. Good luck and congrats on graduation!

Senior Picture Outfit Tips

Take a basic outfit to the next level

Putting together just the right look for your senior pictures can feel overwhelming. But it’s not that hard to add a few accessories to a really simple outfit and change up the whole look! I’ve put together a short video with a few tips on how to take an outfit from basic to BOLD.

Did you know that a couple weeks before every senior session we get together for an in-person styling consultation right in your own home? That means you don’t even have to worry about the details because I will be there to help you! We can go through your closet together and choose just the right pieces for the locations you like, or I can assist in narrowing your outfits down to your ultimate favorites. We will also go over hair and makeup ideas and talk about what kind of locations will be just right for YOU!

Thanks for watching and don’t forget to ‘Say Hi’ through the contact tab. I can’t wait to plan YOUR custom senior experience.
