You did it! After all those years of hard work you are finally graduating! That’s a huge milestone. Your graduation is a once-in-a-lifetime event that deserves to be celebrated and remembered. So do you really want your graduation portrait to look the same as everyone else? My graduation portrait sessions include access to a cap, gown, sash, rolled diploma, and customized charm for the year of your graduation. Its designed for Kindergarten, Middle School, High School, and College Graduates. The photos are done outdoors, however a portable studio can be provided if you’re looking for more of a traditional school portrait.
Most of my graduation portrait sessions are about 30 min for a single grad. However if you have a friend who is interested as well, I do offer the option to book sessions together and save on the bundle. You’d get an hour session back to back. That way you can get some photos individually and together.
What to Wear
The official graduation robes are provided in black to go with any outfit you decide to wear. Though if you happen to have a graduation gown in your school colors, you are welcome to use that instead. What you choose to wear underneath the gown is up to you. The photos will be a combination with the robes on and off.
For boys I would recommend dress pants, dress shoes, a collared button-down shirt, and a tie. For girls I would recommend dress pants, dress shoes, and a nice blouse. If you do decide to wear a dress, try to keep it knee length or shorter. If you’d prefer something more casual, by all means. Just try to avoid any major brand/labels, or prominent prints as they can be distracting. For more ideas on what to wear, check out these ideas.
