Senior Photo Session Day Checklist with Shalimar B. Photography with award-winning Chicago senior photographer Shalimar B. Photography.

As your Chicago senior photographer, it’s my goal to help you through every step of the process – from booking and styling to session prep and making the session incredibly fun and all about you!

Today’s blog post is dedicated to your senior photo session day checklist. That’s right, we’re diving into all the things that you need to have prepped or that you should pack for your senior portrait session with Shalimar B. Photography! Here we go…

1) Bring all clothes and accessories inside to the studio when you arrive

My biggest piece of advice is to make sure all of your clothes are ironed or steamed. I also recommend double and triple checking that you’ve packed everything – all of your outfits, shoes, accessories, and undergarments. And hey, it never hurts to pack an extra outfit just in case!

We don’t want to mess with your hair! After you’re picture ready with hair & makeup all set, you will change into your first outfit for your senior photoshoot.

3) The makeup artist will provide all the makeup

Isn’t this music to your ears?! Woo-hoo! Do not worry about bringing any makeup except for touch ups throughout the shoot. 

4) Makeup bag for touch ups

Piggybacking off of the last one! The only thing you need to worry about when it comes to hair and makeup is bringing lip color for touchups and some extra hairspray in case it gets windy!

Remember how I recommend ironing or steaming all of your clothes before your session? A garment bag is a key player in keeping your clothes photo ready before we start taking photos!

6) A strapless bra if you are wearing anything strapless

Trust me, I want you to feel as comfortable as possible at your session, so don’t forget to bring the appropriate undergarments that you might need to work well with you outfits.

7) A pair of comfy shoes to walk between locations

Last but not least, we’re going to be walking at your session! Bringing along a pair of comfortable shoes to walk between locations throughout your Chicago senior portrait session is a must!
