The time has finally come!
When it comes to your senior session, it should be easy and one of the most fun things you get to plan during your senior year. You get to choose props, scenes, outfits and achievements you want to show off. There are plenty of things that make each one of us special. And senior portraits are the best way to capture your unique personality. Here at Cady Studios, we want to help show what makes you, YOU! So, we wanted to lend a hand and lead you in the right direction.
Now is the perfect time to start planning your outfit choices. Trust us, your parents will thank you if you don’t come to them at midnight the night before your senior session saying, “I have nothing to wear!” No matter what you need to plan, doing it ahead of time will save you and your parents from a headache. Everyone has their own personal style, but we wanted to give you an advantage and supply you with some different styling options you might not be thinking about for your senior portraits.
What’s the best way to add personality to your portraits? PROPS!
Bringing your own individual props to your session can add creativity and uniqueness to any shot that helps bring out your personality. What can be used as a prop? Anything that you love! Maybe you’re in an academic club so bring your club t-shirt, or you’ve won a ton of awards or medals, any musical instrument you play, sports equipment or gear, or maybe you collect stamps. Hey we don’t judge, the list of possibilities are endless!
T-shirt from college you plan to attend
Armed services uniform
Confetti or balloons

Car, truck or motorcycle (only outdoor scenes, please)
Artwork (your painting, drawings or sculptures)
