Senior Portrait Fashion Show Swag Event | Stuart FL photographer

It seems like just yesterday I was running around trying to get last minute details all worked out for my senior portrait fashion show swag event.  I can't believe that was three weeks ago!  We had so much fun that night and my class of 2015 elite model team did such a great job modeling the clothing, hair, and makeup for us!

The outfits for the models were provided by Francesca's Collection from the Jensen Beach Mall. The girls and I had so much fun trying on the outfits and accessorizing with the help of the lovely young ladies who work at the store.  As a photographer in Stuart, FL I am very fortunate to have a plethora of stores and options when it comes to special events.  However, Francesca's always goes over and beyond in helping me put my events together.

Not only do they help me with events, but the store manager, Joyce, is my go to stylist for senior portrait fashion.  I always encourage my clients to go to Francesca's to be styled for their senior portrait experience with me.  Joyce does an amazing job pulling current, stylish outfits together.

I must share some more of the fun that we had.  Here you will find an array of pictures from my senior swag event.  I truly had so much fun that evening.  I met wonderful students, some seniors and some juniors.  I loved all of the outfits the models wore.  Everyone was just amazing!

Senior Swag Fashion Show Event | Stuart FL Portrait Photographer

The first annual senior swag fashion show event was this past Saturday night.  It was so much fun!  I loved meeting everyone who attended, and seeing our elite model team walk the runway with the beautiful clothing provided by francesca's boutique.

Our models looked amazing thanks to the awesome team of hair and makeup artists at besos salon.  Jessica and Lindsey did an amazing job demonstrating the professional airbrush make up application, hair styles, and eyelashes that are included in my senior portrait session options.  Everyone loved seeing the process unfold.

Many of our guests drove to Stuart FL for the event from as far away as Wellington.  I was so ecstatic to see so many new faces and make so many new friends through this event.  Martin County High School, Jensen Beach High School, South Fork High School, Jupiter High School, and Riviera Beach Maritime Academy were all represented by our attendees.

I'm very grateful for the effort that everyone extended, including the models, the hair and make up team, and all of the other people who helped to make this event possible.

I must give a special shout out to Anthony for being such a tremendous help to me.  He greeted everyone, he kept things organized throughout the night, and was so helpful during the set up.  I can not thank him enough for all of his help.  He is a true treasure!

Below you will find some images from the senior swag fashion show event.  I have to thank my husband, Jay, for all of his help in being my portrait photographer that night and capturing all of the fun that was going on.

 This picture of me with some of the attendees also includes our big grand prize winner.  Wayne, in the grey shirt, standing next to me, won the big mac daddy cinematic senior portrait session.  He's into skateboarding so I think that's going to be our focus... unless we come up with something else.... like maybe a green stretch limo with lots of attitude.  We'll see.  It's going to be epic, that's for sure!

Finally, I'd like to give a special shout out to Besos Salon for allowing us to use their space for this event.  It was absolutely perfect in every sense... and they did an outstanding job with the models' hair and make up!

Senior Pictures What to Wear Tips | Stuart Portrait Photographer

They're your favorite pair of jeans and you want to wear them for your senior pictures.  However, they've become a little tattered and worn.  Never fear, it's the fashion... dare I say senior portrait fashion, to wear ripped jeans.  It's part of the street style look.

If you are looking for tips on what to wear for your senior pictures, this is one that you can have fun with.  Who doesn't love a good comfy pair of jeans?  Senior portrait style should reflect who you are at this incredible and singular time in your life.  If ripped jeans and street style speak to you then that is the what you should wear in your pictures.

This street style trend can take on so many looks.  Whether you're a fashion forward senior who loves lace and a little more refined look, pair the jeans with a lace tip and a blazer or jacket.  Or, put some lace on the inside of the ripped area so it shows through the gaps.

Perhaps you want a more casual look for your senior pictures.  Add a simple crisp white button down blouse or white tee.  Accessorize with some chunky metal jewelry, and you've got a more street look.  Whatever direction you choose for your senior portrait wardrobe, these tips will guide you through.

Here are a few fashionable looks for ripped jeans.  All of the images were found on Pinterest.

What to wear tips for senior pictures.
All of the items on this what to wear guide are located on my Pinterest board titled ripped jeans.  Take a peek for more inspiration and to locate where these items came from.

Are you looking for your senior pictures photographer?  You've come to to the right place!  Amy Tara Photography offers an unparalleled experience for the fashion forward senior.

Senior Pictures Sneak Peek | Stuart Portrait Photographer

The heat radiated through the shade, yet we were able to capture some amazing pictures of Bella during her Amy Tara Photography senior portrait experience. 

Managing to look fresh throughout the entire photo shoot during the heat of the summer here in Florida can be quite a challenge.  At times it almost feels as if a you would melt, truly melt.  But, Bella pulled off each of her looks flawlessly.  

Here is a quick little sneak peek of her senior pictures.  As a portrait photographer one of my favorite parts of the job is sharing the sneak peeks!  And there's more to come next week.  I can't wait for Bella to see all of her pictures... to die for, if I may say so myself!

Sneak peek:

Sneak peek of Bella's amazing senior pictures.
Oh, and by the way, did I tell you what an absolute doll this young lady is?!  And did I tell you she brought the most amazing outfits, including an awesome tulle tutu in hot pink, that she made herself.  LOVE!

More coming soon so stay tuned!
