Senior Girls Activity Poses
Activity Poses are Always a Hit
High school senior girls – probably more so than boys – collect their “stuff” from activities. Jerseys, medals, ribbons, shoes, t-shirts, plaques, posters, certificates. It can sometimes make for a “busy” image.
I remember one year, had a senior girl who’d been a dancer since pre-school. She had a dance recital costume from every year she’d been a dancer.
Another senior girl had been a figure skater since she was tiny. Junior year in high school she switched to girl’s hockey! That was an interesting juxtaposition. Foofy hair, makeup and frilly dresses to braids and sweaty hockey equipment. Believe me, doesn’t make any difference if it’s a boy or a girl – hockey equipment stinks!!!
I don’t know that there’s a sport or activity that doesn’t come with the requisite t-shirt. One senior girl had a grandma that was a quilter. Gramma had taken all the t-shirts from years of activity and sewn them into a quilt. What an awesome piece of memorabilia. And of course, one we certainly needed to add to her portraits.
It can be a challenge at times to include all their stuff. Take your time and do your best. Be more concerned with including everything than with proper portrait technique.
As always, if you have questions about how any of these images were created, need answers on props and posing helpers or lighting – just ask – that’s what I’m here for.
