This week we will explore a few more tips for making your senior portraits amazing!
Accessories can really make a difference in the look and feel of your outfit, and they are a great way to add visual interest - that is, they can draw your eye to or away from something, they can break up a large block of color or space, they can tie together pieces of clothing to complete a look, and they can give your hands, arms, feet, eyes, and head something to do!

jewelry - long or statement necklaces, dangly earrings, rings, bracelets, etc.
hats - you can have so much fun with a hat!
scarves - these really tie in a look and make a great place to hold, scrunch, or even toss behind you
glasses - on or off, peeking over the edge, looking chill in the bright sun...there are so many options
cute shoes - they say the shoes make the outfit. Don't forget your feet will be in many of the photos.
