Tip #1 - Get into it

The best way to great pictures is the your attitude. If you're excited, it shows up on every shot. Some of my best photos are from people who can't wait to see their pictures. Attitude makes all the difference. And at Ellickson, we know that it is all about you!

Tip #2 - Be Yourself

While we will help with posing, don't be afraid to try something different. Not every picture needs to be a big smile, they should reflect several aspects of you.

When asked to sit for a pose, sit naturally, the same as you would anywhere else.

Make yourself comfortable and it's OK to move around.

Tip #3 - Clothing & outfits

Worn-out blue jeans are very popular. They look great outdoors and are comfortable for you.

Clothing: Bring your favorite skirt, pants and several tops. Solid colors usually work best. Earthy colors (brown,green) look really good outside.

Leather jackets can be worn or thrown across your shoulder for a more casual look.

#4 - Be Different.

If you use the same photographer that everyone else does, you'll probably have similar pictures. Try finding a photographer that will compliment your tastes.

At Ellickson Studio, you can be sure that we will spend enough time with you to get the great portraits you deserve.

If you are looking for someone better than the usual, we are who you are looking for.

Tip # 5- Jewelry & Accessories

Earrings, necklaces, bracelets , hats and other clothing accessories are great to have along.

They can be mixed with every outfit, giving some really unique pictures.

When you call Ellickson Studio to make your appointment, talk to us when we ask about your interests. Then dont' forget to bring your school jacket or sports items along.Senior Picture Boy
