Top 5 Tips for Wildflower Portraits

1.  Wear bug spray, not perfume.  Wildflowers are beautiful.  We love to look at them and smell them and so do all the littlest flying and creepy crawly creatures.  Your portrait session will be a lot more fun if you aren't itchy.

2.  Sturdy shoes (or rain boots) and long pants are good choices.  In addition to the tiny creatures, wildflowers grow in very muddy areas sometimes and can be home to snakes.  Your pictures will look better if you aren't worried about getting bitten or ruining a nice outfit.

3.  Prepare for allergens.  If you are prone to hay fever attacks, a preventative antihistamine can save the day.  Swollen red eyes and leaky noses don't photograph well.

4.  Style matters.  Wildflowers make a great setting for Senior Pictures, but some styles look much more natural in them than others.  Some good styles for outfit choices are Boho, Gypsy, Rustic, and Country.  

5.  Consider color.  Color harmony makes any portrait better.  Consider the color of the flowers in the field you are photographing and wear colors that match or compliment them.  For example, a field of red clover looks great with bold colors, while a field of pale pink evening primrose looks better with pastels.
