Senior portrait season is in full swing, yearbook portraits are due at many schools in as little as a month and I hate to break it to you but if you haven’t booked your senior session you are running out of time! (contact me now!) For those of you ladies who are preparing for your session in the next few weeks I wanted to share with you some tips for choosing jewelry for your session.
The big mistake I see with seniors choosing pieces for their session is choosing something too dainty. There is nothing I hate more than a single charm on a chain with a clasp that never stays in place. This may seem a little harsh however in most cases the charm itself will sit just below the neckline where it is not visible in the portrait and all that will show is the chain and the never in the right place clasp.
If you are going to wear jewelry for your senior session choose something that makes a statement! I met up with this beautiful senior Faith and local jewelry designer Leslie of Pim and Poppy last month to play with some jewelry and show off some styles that will really make a statement for your portraits.
These show how a great piece of jewelry can really make a simple outfit pop. Also don’t forget that jewelry is not the only accessories that can make your portraits great. I love it when seniors bring hats, scarves, and sunglasses for a few fun shots too!

More about Leslie:I started by making a pair of simple earrings about a million years ago as a lark. The lady at the bead store told me once you start you wont be able to stop.She was so right, 14 years later and I grew my craft from beading, wire work and teaching classes to taking metalsmiting in college and classes from GIA (Gemological Institute of America).I am also a founding member of the Boulder Metal-smiting Association. Where I take classes and love to work side by side with other Metal artist, and a home studio that I work in as well. I specialize in Silver smithing and wire work and have a crazy love of color and texture.
