Smocked-off the shoulder top: Hollister / Medium wash jean shorts: American Eagle / shoes: Ralph Lauren Charla Espadrilles / Bracelet+Necklace: Hollister

Photographer’s notes: why it works…
I was thrilled when I saw Julia’s top and then she brought out those shoes! This style of top and the colors are really versatile to go with many settings and royal and navy blue photograph so beautifully. I love the subtle texture that playfully complements the pattern. She made such a great choice with a necklace that doesn’t compete with the neckline of the top; it falls right above and below while offering lots of detail in the layers. I absolutely LOVED her bracelet and ring pairing, they all worked together really well and with the whole ensemble. Finally, you just can’t go wrong with wedges!

Q+A with Julia

What made you choose this outfit for your shoot?
I wanted something casual, but pretty and unique. And I really loved the colors.

What did you love about this outfit? How did you feel wearing it?
I absolutely loved my shirt and shoes the most, the off the shoulder blouse made me feel beautiful. The shoes were comfortable and adorable. The outfit itself made me feel comfortable and good about myself.

Do you have any tips to share for shopping/prepping for a senior shoot:
My tips would be to choose an outfit that is casual and comfortable but is unique and beautiful in its own way. Take your time while choosing your outfits because senior pictures will be seen forever. You want to love your outfit every time you look back at the pictures. Theresa was also amazing putting my outfits together and recommending certain outfits for certain locations.

Photographer’s notes: why it works…
Layers are my favorite and a hood to frame your face is dreamy for any portrait. Blue is one of the best colors to photograph, it really pops and looks amazing in almost any surrounding, especially when it brings out your eyes like it does for Lauren. I love the urban simplicity of her grey tee, typography is so elegantly understated. And finally, the long necklace is PERFECT to give something for your hands to do and Lauren nailed it!!

dark blue jeans: American Eagle / red top: Marshalls / vintage brown booties: Pay less / Pearl & Heart Necklace: Icing

Photographer’s notes: why it works
I really love the subtle layers that Lauren’s top has at the bottom. I about freaked when I saw those mad men-esque brown booties! This whole look had an intellectual vibe, especially with her black frame glasses. They gave her something to do with her hands and made for a cute detail when we took them off.

Dark Blue Jeans: American Eagle / pink floral top: Tj Maxx / light pink knitted sweater: Tj Maxx / Pearl & Heart Necklace: Icing / Nude Pumps: Payless

Photographer’s notes: why it works…
Hello girl next door! Lauren did such a great job pairing these tones, I mean, EVEN HER NAILS MATCH! <insert heart eyes emoji here> This look is so comfortable yet classy. I LOVE the texture of her knit sweater; how we were able to give her hands something to do by pulling it closed (which again, she nailed) and how it flowed down past her blouse and hugged her body. Her pearl necklace adds interest, subtle details do so much for an image. Then her classic nude heels top everything off to really dress up the jeans. 

Q+A

What made you choose these outfits for your shoot?
I wanted ensembles that displayed not only the different parts of my wardrobe but my quirky personality as well. The first outfit wasn’t actually planned! I wore it to the studio for hair and make up and TM loved it and wanted to work with it, so we did! I wanted to choose clothing that was fashionable and super cute but modest as well. I am a huge advocate for modesty and inner beauty so it was essential for me to pick outfits that not only expressed my personality and highlighted my natural features but preserved my values as well.

What did you love about these outfits? How did you feel wearing them?
To be totally honest, I adored these outfits because I felt like me and it was great! These ensembles are ones that I would wear on a daily basis so it was really awesome to embrace my style in a “trend setting” way haha. Primarily, I loved that these outfits were comfy! I tend to describe my style and Cute n’ Comfy and thats exactly what it was. I really loved that each outfit had a central color piece like the blue jacket or red top that really made the look pop!

Do you have any tips to share for shopping/prepping for a senior shoot:
Well, my first piece of advice is to not break your bank buying all new clothes. I personally didn’t spend a cent on any new clothes; but I did invest in some hair spray (I seriously have the straightest hair ever haha). You already have your best looks in your closet so design some outfits and hold a mini fashion show for your mom! (I guarantee she’ll love it) And by the way Theresa is not only a bomb photographer but an amazing stylist as well, she has a fantastic eye for fashion and can help you class up any look! My second piece of advice in prepping for a shoot would be to embrace spontaneity. Don’t panic about trying to get every location or worry about the weather. Some of my best shots were last minute/random idea shots! So relax and fun!

Meet Terese who graduated from Steinbrenner High School with the class of 2016…

Fashionable Senior pictures in Clearwater, Florida

IN HER OWN WORDS:

“I chose Theresa Marie because I didn’t want my pictures to look so staged and tacky like they do when you get them done in front of the screens. I had an amazing time and loved every part of it. I felt like a princess and was completely comfortable. Getting to meet Theresa Marie was my favorite part, we clicked right away and she made it so much fun! When I first saw my images, I was shocked! I couldn’t believe it was me, I looked amazing!

I wouldn’t change anything about my experience! I had so much fun! The only thing I would change would be having more time to take pictures because it was so much fun! I would tell other seniors how sweet and kind Theresa Marie is! She makes you feel comfortable right away and her pictures are amazing! It’s the best experience I’ve ever had!

Doing my senior pictures with Theresa Marie was the best thing I did all senior year! She made me feel so special and comfortable in front of the camera! My pictures turned out amazing and I know they’ll be something I will treasure forever! I wish I could do this again!”

Meet Maddie who came all the way from Ohio…

Graduation pictures taken in Clearwater, Florida for high school senior from Ohio

IN HER OWN WORDS:

Coming from Ohio, we were hesitant to get my pictures taken really anywhere but our local area. But after some research, and a Florida vacation planned, Theresa Marie came into the picture and we took a change and it was well worth it! I knew the experience was going to be amazing once I walked into her office. From getting my makeup done, picking out outfits, driving to the beach and the pictures themselves, my parents and I were all so excited. My favorite part was taking pictures on the beach because that was a dream I’ve always had, to get my senior pictures done on a beach. It truly was a dream come true.

I was more than pleased when I saw my pictures. Theresa Marie captured my true personality and happiness in her pictures. I have never been so pleased with pictures of myself. I would not have changed anything about my experience. It all was flawless! I would recommend Theresa Marie to any parents or seniors, not only because she is a great photographer, but because of her personality. I think her personality was the thing that, after my pictures were over, my parents and I were so blown away by. It was meant to be that we picked her to take my senior pictures.

I knew nothing about photographers in the area since we came to Florida for a vacation. After hearing about Theresa Marie and looking at her website, I knew I found the right photographer. Once the time came for my pictures, I was nervous and anxious because I knew nothing about her and her business, other than from her website. But the anxiety quickly vanished once we finally met. I knew I had made the right choice very quickly, and the day of my shoot was one I will never forget. Theresa Marie made my senior picture shoot so memorable, and I can never thank her enough for that!
