Brittney Renee SENIORS


I am SO excited you're here! Being a senior is SUCH a special time in your lives and I'm so excited for what's to come. This guide will be your BEST FRIEND as you plan and prepare for your big day, and will allow you to know exactly what to expect during your senior photography experience! I'm so EXCITED to pour into you and to help ease the stress of planning. As always, feel free to reach out at any time if you have any questions along the way!

I'm Married

My hubby, Aubrey is my best friend, biggest encourager, and the love of my life. We were married on March 19, 2011 and it was the best day of our lives. We got married at our home church in Louisiana on a beautiful sunny Spring day! We have dated since we were while we both worked at a local GROCERY STORE. I love doing life with him and having him by my side! Marriage is such a beautiful gift and I love growing in our marriage every day. 

I'm a Mom

Aubrey and I had a Pomeranian named Gypsy soon after we were married! She lived with us in our little apartment until we found out I was pregnant, with our baby girl, Bella, due in July of 2012. She is our feisty headstrong 9 year old that we know and love today! In 2016 our little Gypsy passed away unexpectedly, so to fill that hole in our broken hearts we got our Siberian Husky we have to this day Nymeria, Then shortly after we had our sweet laid back son, Ezra, in 2019 


Before we jump right in, here are three things you NEED to know about me:

I Love Coffee

If you have followed me on instagram for any amount of time, you know that coffee has my heart. They’re my go-to drink wherever I go! Grandi Salted Caramel Cold Brew  from my favorite  coffee shop @Starbucks? YES, please! Any other coffee drinkers out there? I just can't get enough!! You can frequently see my obsession over on my Instagram where I frequently share about my day to day life!

My Why

I love photographing seniors because it gives me the opportunity to serve and love a completely different type of client than I normally service-which is senior clients. It’s such a joyful and EXCITING time in your life, but I totally understand how overwhelming the entire process can be! I’m here to walk you through every step of your photography experience from making you feel confident in front of my camera with constant direction to helping you craft the perfect experience. At the end of the day, planning is so incredibly fun, but the really awesome part is that you’re graduating soon! I love celebrating that with you because being a senior has been one of the biggest blessings in your life, but also your parents as well! I’m here to encourage you as you make your journey towards this major transitions in life the easiest and prettiest it can be!

This is your FIRST step of your experience with me which also makes it SUPER exciting! There are two main goals of our time together (besides getting gorgeous photos, of course): 

1. Spend more time together and get to know each other better!
2. For me to create images for you that will make your #seniorsunday look amazing. 


If you're like every other senior, you're probably a little nervous thinking about being in front of the camera... I mean, you're not used to having a big black box pointed at you, am I right?! Even *I* get nervous when I'm having photos done!!

It's COMPLETELY normal to feel this way, but I want to encourage you to just relax and have a good time. I'm going to be giving you allllll the direction so you never feel like you know what your doing. We're going to capture those timeless photos that everyone loves, while getting a little goofy and having fun (don't be surprised if I pull out my speaker and turn on some music!!). Some prompts I give you both might seem a little silly at first, but TRUST ME, they create some legit magic.

All you have to do is show up and be yourself... easy, right?! I'll take care of the rest and we're going to have a lot of FUN!


BE ON TIME: We typically plan your start time based on sunset time. If you are late, it cuts into the sunlight we have available! No one wants dark photos, so arriving on time will ensure we have gorgeous light to work with for your whole shoot! :) 

BRINGING THE DOG: I adore ALL the cute pups, so naturally, I LOVE it when you bring them along! The best way to include them is to have someone else bring your dog during the last 15 minutes of your session, or choose a session location that is less than 5 minutes away from your home. Contact me so we can work out the details!

CLEAN THE RING: If you bring your class ring, make sure it is clean! I'd love to grab a few up close shots of just your ring while you change outfits! Cleaning it will ensure it's nice and sparkly for photos!

EMPTY YOUR POCKETS: Especially for guys, make sure you don't have anything in your pockets! I am more than happy to store phones and keys in my bag, or ladies, you can bring along a little purse to keep everything in. 

RELAX! You don’t have to be a pro at this! I’m going to help you along the way and it’s going to be a blast! I don't expect anything from you. Enjoy this time and make a date out of it! Plan something fun or go to dinner afterwards and celebrate!!

GET YOUR NAILS DONE: Make sure your nails are freshly painted, or spoil yourself with a trip to the salon! Chipped nails will be noticeable in your photos. Neutral colors and pastels photograph beautifully and will match any outfit!

BRING COMFY SHOES: If you're wearing heels, bring a pair of flip flops or comfortable shoes to walk from spot to spot. Your feet will thank me later!


HOW MANY OUTFITS? Most often, my seniors like to have one casual, everyday outfit (think: date night) and then one outfit that is dressier! This will give your shoot two totally different “looks.” I recommend beginning with the dressy outfit first!

PROFESSIONAL HAIR & MAKEUP: This is the perfect way to pamper yourself before an exhausting day! So I highly recommend hiring a professional to avoid the stress of not being able to get your hair or makeup done exactly how you want it. 

CHOOSING COLORS: When choosing colors for your outfits, I recommend selecting lighter tones and more muted shades. By avoiding ultra-bright, bold colors, it will help bring all the attention to your faces and let the eye focus on the way you feel about each other. Soft pinks, muted blues, and light neutrals like heather gray, creams, leather brown and white all work wonderfully.

SKIP CASUAL CLOTHES: I know flip flops are *perfect* for everyday wear, but Instead...

DRESS IT UP: Have you ever wanted to rock a sequin dress, or a long flowy maxi dress? Maybe you've dreamed of wearing a floral crown, or wearing a tulle skirt. THIS is your chance!  Ladies, especially for your dressy outfit, I typically recommend a long, flowy A line dress that cinches at the waist. This is typically most flattering on most body types! For the guys, opt for a suit or nice pants and a suit jacket with a button down for your fancy outfit. 

FLATTER YOUR FEATURES: Ladies, keep in mind which features you want to flatter and which features you want to hide when picking outfits! For example, if you want to hide your arms, choose a top with sleeves and skip the spaghetti straps. If you want to minimize your bust, choose a dress with a higher neckline and skip the strapless dress. If you opt for a low cut dress, it will minimize the amount of angles I can shoot! 

SKIP THE SPRAY TAN: Even though it seems counter intuitive, I highly recommend skipping a spray tan altogether, even if it's a few days out from your session. Spray tans tend to photograph more orange than they appear and will make you appear more orange than tan!

outfit ideas


First off, I want to say that I ALWAYS encourage my seniors to think of session locations that have MEANING to them. This will allow us to capture more genuine images that reflect your personality. Think: Favorite date spot, family farm, your fave coffee spot, your future college, your home, etc. However, if you're totally stumped for locations, have no fear!! We'll work together to pick a location that fits you two best!

Here is a list I've compiled of some of my favorite locations for photo sessions! I love these spots in particular because I'm able to provide photos that are super consistent with what you see on my website and blog, and also provide a huge variety in backgrounds for you! If a location you're considering is not on this list, feel free to reach out to ask about it - chances are I've never photographed there, or if I have, it's one I can't provide a good variety of spots at! Of course, I always encourage you to pick locations that have meaning to you as well. If there's a spot that is especially meaningful and would love to incorporate it, let's chat!!

Baton rouge

This location has the best light and sun position in the afternoon. With many stone columns, the old governor's mansion and right across the street from Raising Cane's River Center, this location makes it so easy to get to other areas very quickly. 

*Images in this album are within 5 minutes of Downtown Baton Rouge.

MEET AT: Parking Lot where River Rd. and Florida Blvd. in Baton Rouge, LA

Perkins Rowe

Perkins Rowe has that amazing city feel, without having to fly hundreds of miles to get to it. With its shopping district, fountains, and gorgeous theater this is a MUST HAVE for your location choice.

My favorite spot to shoot here is by all of the shops early in the morning where it appears as though you have the entire place to yourself! 

state park

This location has that amazing beach feel, along with many other photo ops! From the beautiful giant mossy oak trees to the gorgeous brick walk ways, this location is one for the books and won't disappoint!

MEET AT: 62883 LA-1089, Mandeville, LA 70448


Want to embrace our states history? This is the perfect place to do just that! Being built in the early 1800's, Rosedown's Plantation will give you all the feels of old and beautiful backgrounds, as well as TONS of greenery, trees and flowers. 

So that the sun will be in the PERFECT spot it is highly recommended to make this location choice an early shoot. 

ADDRESS: 12501 LA-10, St Francisville, LA 70775

Independence Botanic gardens

If you are looking for a spring and flower blooming location, this is the spot for you!! Independence Botanic Garden has beautiful stone walk ways, tons of flowers, and fountains to make the senior session of your dreams come true!!

This location is best shot in the morning to ensure you get that PERFECT defused backlighting that I love and I guarantee you will love also!!!

ADDRESS: 7950 Independence Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70806


There is no pressure to bring anything... however, here are some ideas of items you may want! 

Your Dog/Animal - bringing your puppers along can be so much fun, just make sure you have someone with you to help with him/her when they are not in photos. 

Extra Lip Stick/Powder -you are going to want to touch up along the way especially if your skin is prone to being on the oilier side. 

Your Shade of Makeup - Our hair and makeup artist likes for you to being the foundation you normally use on your skin so that she can ensure a perfect match. Normally she mixes what you bring with other shades to ensure the makeup is perfection! 

Extra Accessories: We will have time to change up your look by adding a fun hat, a floral crown, or a good pair of statement earrings. Bring options!



Of course! I encourage you to bring someone that will help you relax and have fun. In fact, if you’re under 18, I insist that you bring someone. You may want to warn your guest because I often enlist parents/friends/siblings in holding reflectors or act goofy behind me. :) If you’d like to have some photos with your friend, we will take the last 5-10 minutes of your session to photograph you and whoever you brought along! 

This is always a fun surprise/gift I love to give my families and seniors. These portraits are so sweet for my seniors. Many families go years without having photos taken. 

So when you schedule your session, try to get your family to take 5 minutes at the end of your session to snap a few photos. 


One of the most COMMON questions I get asked is, what happens if it RAINS on my portrait day? While this isn't always ideal and doesn't match the sunny day you imagine while planning, I want to encourage you that you can still have GORGEOUS photos, even if it's rainy! Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind: 

1. Overcast skies = perfect lighting. Sunlight, especially mid-day, is actually very harsh. Rainy days give that perfect, soft, natural lighting, no matter where you take your photos! This gives you perfect lighting + the ability to use a lot more locations. It also tends to make colors look more vibrant. :) Don’t get me wrong, I love golden, sunlit photos… but overcast has its advantages as well.

2. Let me worry about the photos. On your portrait day, the only thing you should have to worry about is being the STAR! :)

If the weather is totally un-shootable, I will be in contact with you 24 hours prior to your session to chat with you about cancelling and rescheduling your session. If we have to reschedule, I will give your session first priority on my calendar.
