Meet Kate


Meet Kate, our third model for the "rock your school uniform" photo shoot. Kate dressed up her uniform with some bracelets, watch, and a scarf from Trends Boutique. She also (as seen in the group photos) chose boots to wear for her winter outfit that looked really neat.
Kate interviewed with me while getting her hair and makeup done. She didn't even hesitate when asked what she wanted to be doing in ten years.
This was such a fun series of pictures to take, and these girls were fun to work with. These girls are simply high school seniors who were willing to participate. Thanks, Kate, Julie, and Katie for being models.

Meet Katie


Katie started out modeling for me toward the end of last year when she finishing up her junior year. Katie is one of a kind- you can hardly keep her from smiling! Keep reading to see what she would spend 1000 charitable hours on. 
Katie's school doesn't allow different shoes or scarves, so her hair and jewelry made her jumper look casual, yet that she cared about her appearance.

How to ROCK your school uniform- Tara Marie Photography Seniors

School is upon us! As a matter of fact, two weeks from now, my little girl is starting school for the first time. She has her cute little uniforms in the drawer and is always wanting to try them on.

I love the fact that she has to wear uniforms for three reasons. One, she's very picky about her clothes. This should simplify our life tremendously when it comes to getting dressed in the mornings. Two, I will easily know at a glance when I need to wash uniforms. We have six total, just in case time gets away from us during the weekend. Three, she looks really cute in them.

But, I got to thinking about my senior clients who have to wear uniforms to school, and realized that not everyone loves uniforms as much as I do. So, three local girls, a local salon, and a local boutique helped me put together some different looks of how to make a school uniform look good using accessories, hairdos, makeup, and shoes.

The rules for this photo shoot were 1. You must wear your actual school uniform. 2. You can only wear accessories that are within your school's regulation.

It was really fun to create this photo shoot for these high school seniors. I hope you enjoy the pictures of how these high school girls rock their school uniforms and can get some ideas for yourself.

Some ideas of how you can rock your school uniform-
Great shoes
Bracelets
Watches
Purses
Put time into your hairdo
Accentuate your lipstick
Put a little more eye makeup on your eyes

Do you have more ways that you rock or personalize your school uniform? Comment below.


Coming up in the next blog post - get to know the models behind this photo shoot.
