Houston Senior Style – Is Summer the Best Look for You?

Houston Senior Style – Is Summer the Best Look for You?  Planning your senior session for May or September – October might be perfect for you in Houston.  Notice that I left June – August OUT, why?  It is HOT and sweaty.  I have found that the months just on each side of summer often perfectly lends themselves to summer session styles without the extreme temps.

So let’s take a look if summer is right for you?

TOP 3 Reasons to Book a Summer Styled Senior Session:

In Houston, we have warm temps for a lot of the year.  So, our summers are somewhat extended.  DO you love your skin with a hint of color?  Apply your sunscreen and you’ll still have some warm tones to your skin that is beautiful in portraits.  Do you get some natural highlights from the sun?  Take advantages of those lovely enhanced tones and plan your session to showcase them.

2.  Show some skin!

OK, hold up here….my suggestions still apply on this.  Pick one or hesitantly two:  a bit of leg, shoulders/back or a lower neckline.  We do not need to go for all three at one time.

Sundresses, shorts and beautiful backless romper….summer sessions are perfect for this!

3.  Florals and Vibrancy

Another reason for planning a summer styled session just before or as summer wraps is the natural landscape all around us here in Houston.  Florals about, both natural and landscaped.  We can pull in pinks, yellows, and rich LUSH greens.  They are mesmerizing paired with the warm golden sun.
