Senior Portrait Scarf
There is this great gift shop in town where I like to shop. (I hope to feature them soon in an upcoming blog post.) My friend's husband was throwing my friend a surprise 40th birthday party and when I saw the black and white scarf at the gift shop, I just knew she would look fabulous in it. So, I bought it and had them wrap it up with another fun little gift I found there. Turns out, my friend doesn't wear scarves and I didn't know that. Not sure why, though. I guess she doesn't feel comfortable in them. (Kind of like I felt about ruffles on blouses at first, I guess. But now I love ruffles!) I was hoping she'd change her mind about the scarf but I still haven't seen the scarf. <sigh>
As you may already know, for senior photography sessions, I recommend solids. This keeps the portraits from being really busy. However, a little pop of color does wonders to an outfit. And the cool thing about a senior portrait scarf is that it is easy to change to create a different look. You can wrap it differently, too, which changes it up.
Here are some beautiful examples of scarves that would work with the right outfit:

You can wear a great scarf with a jacket or sweater or with a simple blouse or dress. But, if scarves are not you, don't feel that you have to wear one. It is really important to me that a senior wears things she loves and is comfortable in, outfits that speak volumes about her personality and energy. But if you like the idea of wearing a scarf and you haven't worn one before, try it out for a while before your senior portrait session. and see what you think.
