I get asked all the time about how to avoid awkward senior pictures. Because I've photographed hundreds of seniors over the years in the Atlanta area I just happen to have some experience with that! Haha! So I have some senior session tips for you about avoiding those awkward senior pictures :)
Seriously. You've got this! Let your nerves settle and just go with it. You really are going to be amazing in your senior pictures!
2. Hire a photographer who is good at directing and understands how to pose for every body type, especially your body type!
Do your research before hiring a photographer. Watch their behind the scenes stories on Instagram to be sure you will be comfortable with them. That comfort level will ultimately make you feel more confident. You can see mine here.
3. Trust your photographer AND the process.
Once you are in your senior session there actually may be times when things feel a little awkward. More than likely this is one of the first time all the attention has been on your for professional portraits. That's totally understandable! But remember back to why you hired your senior photographer in the first place. She (or he) has got your back! They want you to look and feel your best! So trust them and trust the process.
4. Be true to yourself.
Don't try to be someone you aren't. Being genuine with your outfits, your makeup, the locations you guys choose and your expressions will help you feel so much better during your senior session.
5. If all else fails, put on some music you love and just jam out during your session! This is the ultimate way to calm nerves. Have fun guys! This only happens once :)
