One of the hardest things about having your senior portraits taken is figuring out what to wear. This is probably my most frequented question that I get from my clients. I actually have an entire 45 page magazine that details What to Wear for my high school seniors, so they can feel totally confident in how they look and feel in front of the camera. So when it comes to your senior portraits, it’s imperative that the clothes you wear flatter your figure and highlight your personal style. I look back on my senior pictures, and I love how I can see my 90’s hippy self.
For the photos in this post, I partnered with Stitch & Feather and worked with the most amazing stylist named Bry. She has a special talent of envisioning from head to toe, what should be worn with what, and even what sorts of outfits would look best according to your figure. I seriously want her to dress me for my entire wardrobe. I recommend all my future high school senior clients to go to Fullerton’s Stitch & Feather and get the perfect photo ready outfit. Ask to work with Bry, and you will be set!
Keep in mind, this is the second installment of images highlighting our special shoot with Stitch & Feather, so make sure to also check out Part One of the series.
I really love this open shoulder peasant romper that Ashley is wearing. So gorgeous. It’s flirty, just like her. And the spring colors are perfect for So Cal and really pop against our backdrop of green.
These shots are so fun too. Emily is look adorable in this kimono ensemble, but made more daytime with the funky boho hat. And Alex’s legs could go for days, so the white dress that she was wearing looked amazing on her!
How much do we all love this shot! Soo fun! The glasses that Victoria is wearing are so 60’s, but without looking explicitly vintage. I think I have to pick me up a pair.
Oh to be young again. Ashely, you are killing me in this romper! Adorable!!!! And Nicole’s romper is equally amazing. I love the flared arms.
I really love the whole look of the tide dyed inspired dress that Kelsy is wearing. So cute right?! And the sweet girlish pattern accompanied by a long sweater vest on Victoria is gorgeous!
I love the layers of this outfit. Every detail is perfect.
You girls are beautiful. So Foxy!
Thanks so much to my team of Foxy Models for waking up early and strutting your stuff for the camera. I love my makeup artist, Amanda at Salon Lujon, who always does the best job making my girls look especially beautiful. Always amazing to work with. And of course, a huge thanks to Stitch & Feather, for dressing my girls and giving them a super model experience. Bry, you are awesome and oh so talented.
If you are not sure what to wear to your senior portrait session, then you should stop by Downtown Fullerton’s awesome boutique called Stitch & Feather. With super cute clothes that are perfect for the free spirited and bohemian girl, Stitch & Feather has a plethora of adorable outfit choices for your senior portrait session. Fullerton has lots of great boutiques, but when Stitch & Feather moved into town, it was a game changer. Everyone always refers to them as a light or as a breath of fresh air in the neighborhood. They definitely set a new standard of awesome boutiques in Fullerton!
The weekend of the epic music festival called Coachella, my Foxy Models and I worked with a team of stylists at Stitch & Feather to come up with our own versions of what we would of worn if we were going to Cochella. All the outfits, from head to toe, are using clothes from Stitch & Feather’s Fullerton store. They also have a store in Huntington Beach, so there is chance you can also find some of the care free styles there as well.
My Foxy Models rocked the shoot! They had a blast getting all dolled up by the wonderful Amanda from Salon Lujon. Girls, you were troopers to get up at 7:00 am on a Sunday morning! And Amanda, you killed it…the girls looked flawless.
And a special thanks to Bry & Candi from Stitch & Feather who really made this all happen. We had to do our shoot before store hours, so it was awesome that Candi set the whole thing up. And Bry was such an amazing stylist!!! Seriously, I want her to dress me for the rest of my life.
So onto the photos…enjoy the beauty!
Our first model is the gorgeous Nicole, from Sonora High School. Isn’t her necklace just amazing! This is a total statement piece. When you layer jewelry with beautiful clothes, it equals a win for a great outfit for your senior portrait shoot.
I think I am in love with these pants. Nicole is totally ready for her next summer concert.
Our second Foxy Senior Model is Alex, also from Sonora High School. Alex is looking especially gorgeous in this darling ensemble. So cute!
From Alex’s shoes to the darling bando, she is perfectly styled.
Ashley, a Foxy Model from Troy High School, totally brought her joy into the shoot. Ashley, you look radiant!
I love how Ashley’s accessories totally match the colors found within the dress. LOVE!
Victoria, is a Foxy Model from Troy High School and she looks like she just stepped out of a bus heading to a summer concert.
I love how casual this outfit is, that you can dress it up to go out on a date or even wear to school.
Emily, a Foxy Model from Sonora High School, is just perfect in her coral necklace and kimono. This would the perfect sort of outfit for a senior portrait shoot.
Emily, you are stunning!
Our last Foxy Model, to participate in this Stitch & Feather shoot is Kelsy, from Los Alamitos High School. I just love this entire look! Soo cute!!!
Kelsy, you are radiant and your smile just beams. And you wear this open shoulder peasant top so well.
Thanks for an awesome shoot girls. So if you in the Fullerton area, take a moment to check out Stitch & Feather. You won’t be disappointed. It’s my new favorite store for sure! And if you ask for Bry; she will style you perfectly for your next portrait shoot.
I was so excited when Kathryn’s mom contacted me to do a senior portrait shoot of her graduating senior. Kathryn is a Class of 2015 Senior at Orange Lutheran High School and she is GORGEOUS. She was a joy to photograph, because she has been a dancer her whole life. I get giddy when I get to photograph dancers because they know how to elegantly move their body and really can nail every pose I put her in. Kat also has a great sense of style and her outfit choices were perfect for a spring day in Downtown Fullerton and along the Fullerton Loop.
We then changed outfits into a gorgeous green dress, which worked perfectly in our urban Downtown Fullerton location.
Seriously, Kat you are STUNNING!
We then headed to the Fullerton Loop in search for some gorgeous yellow mustard flowers. And oh girl, we found them!
Kat is super sassy. And I like it!
For a little surprise, I made Kat a flower crown. She loved it, to say the least. I think these next photos are some of my favorites from the whole shoot.
The sun was about to set, and I couldn’t stop taking pics of Kathryn! She is just so beautiful.
Kathryn, I am so excited for your bright future. I admire you for choosing to go away for college, to the University of Nebraska. You have so many adventures ahead of you and I just know you are going to love every second of college. Join a sorority, fall in love, travel the world and of course learn something while you are in college.
Maddie is a sweet heart and I am so pumped that she is a Foxy Senior Model for the Class of 2016! Maddie Wallace is a Class of 2016, Troy High School ASB kid. She does it all, yearbook and full honors load…so being a Foxy Model will definitely be a highlight of her senior year! Yay!
Maddie has lots of favorites: strawberry soy milk, sour patch kids, Swedish candy, Northern California and her Doc Martins.
Maddie is super into school, so she loves to stay on top of her grades. She dreams of going to college, then teaching English in Korea, going to med school to eventually become an Oncologist.
Maddie’s friends would describe her as confident, funny and independent. She loves to travel, play soccer, read great books like Unbroken, and run.
This was Maddie’s first time having professional photos taken of her, so she had a blast. You did a fabulous job and I hope I made you feel beautiful…because you are!
You all know that I love to photograph my Seniors, but every now and then I like to mix it up when I get the opportunity to do a Foxy at 50 session.To see other Foxy at 40 sessions, check out Grace & Kasey.
I LOVE photographing older women for a plethora of reasons. When you are young, you don’t know how beautiful you are. When you’re older, you have confidence and have learned to love yourself. When you are post-partum, like myself, you most likely don’t like your new mommy figure and feel insecure like a teen ager all over again. And when you are in your 50’s you hopefully have accepted yourself and found a deeper beauty within and that shines forth, making your already beautiful self even that much more beautiful. Us women are so cruel to ourselves; that inner voice that tells us that we are not beautiful. When I get the opportunity to show other women that they are truly stunning, I love it. It’s quite an addiction really. I think women of all ages, at all stages should have professional portraits done of themselves to give us a good dose of self-confidence and allow something to yell louder than the inner demons that try to tell us that we are not enough. Anyhow, here are some gorgeous photos of my friend Lisa.
As you can see Lisa has a gorgeous smile. She is has a super fun personality and a heart that is filled with laughter. Her joy just radiates. She made it easy to photograph her, as she loved smiling for the camera.
Lisa is a former client from five years ago, when I just started out in my photography biz. I photographed her and her husband Randy. We had a blast together, capturing their love. Fast forward five year later and Lisa wanted to update her head shots and naturally thought of me. We had so much fun together.
Lisa, you are a Fox! You are truly beautiful and my goodness, you are in awesome shape and have beautiful skin. What are your secrets?
Lisa shared on her Facebook page, “Very excited to share that I recently did a “Foxy at Fifty” photo shoot with Amber Fox Photo and I could not be more pleased with how my photos turned out! Amber is an amazingly gifted photographer, very professional and wonderful to work with. Her skills behind the lens and her adorable personality make her a joy to spend time with. She has a God given talent as a photographer and she’s able to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. It was a real blessing for me to able to do this photo shoot with her. The last time I had professional images done, I also worked with Amber Fox but it was 5 years ago, so it was time for a re-fresh! If you are local and thinking about getting some head shots for work or personal use you have to visit Amber! She’s amazing!” Wow, thanks for the awesome testimonial Lisa!
