Inside: Cute Teenage Girl Photoshoot Ideas (+ Senior Session Tips)
The majority of our teen females enjoy being in the spotlight. In today’s age of Instagram and selfies, it’s no surprise that the trend has gained popularity. It seems like there is always a camera clicking around my teens, what with all the selfies, group pictures, and trendy shoots.
When my friends and I were teenagers, we rarely took serious photos, opting instead for make-up-heavy selfies in the mall mirror instead. Or making funny faces at each other, like some of my favorite photos from senior skip day.
Here are some of our favorite photoshoot ideas for teenage girls, whether you’re looking to capture candid moments between friends, or planning a senior shoot.

Teenage Girl Senior Photoshoot Ideas
There is a lot that can be done to ensure that your senior pictures turn out great. Main categories include settings, clothing, accessories, cosmetics, hairstyles, and poses.
Some of our favorite suggestions for senior photoshoots for girls of that age are presented below.
Tips for Senior Photos
- Bring various outfits: Grab several outfits so you can have a few wardrobe changes along the way. The outfits should include various looks that match your personality.
- Clothes should be basic:Do not wear anything that has writing, plaids, or photos on it (with the possible exception of your school’s logo). Rather than the words on your shirt, you want people to focus on your eyes, appearance, and facial features.
- Don’t wear too much jewelry:Don’t stand out by accessorizing with flashy jewelry. Once again, the jewelry should not steal the show from your beautiful face, eyes, and personality. Another quick way to tell if a photo has become dated is by looking at the jewelry worn by the subjects. The best jewelry is timeless classics.
- Don’t go for exaggerated makeup:Even though you might feel tempted to put on your best glam for your senior portrait, doing so may result in you looking like a total stranger.
- Don’t forget the crops:The majority of photographers will encourage you to bring in personal props to the shoot. These props can range from instruments to pieces of sports gear if you are an athlete or fan. In most cases, you can even include your furry friend in the photos.
- Bring someone with you: If you know of a friend who can help you feel more comfortable and take more candid photos, most photographers will encourage you to bring them along. Plus, a friend or family member can help you with wardrobe changes and make sure your hair is looking good!
