  1. Bed Head Hair Spray

This hair spray is my favorite! If you want your curls to last all session even in the ND wind and heat this will do the trick!

2. Hand Held Mirror

Just incase you need to touch up your makeup or fix your hair!

3. Wet Brush

I LOVE my wet brush! Doesn't make my hair frizz and is so good at detangling my long hair after I get out of the shower without ripping my hair out! I also like that it's gentle enough to comb through curls without causing frizz.

4. Band Aids

A lot of the time the shoes you wear to your senior session are new and not broken in! Bring bandaids just incase you get a blister!

5. Lint Roller

Last thing you want is lint showing on your clothes in your photos! Also during your session you will be posing in all sorts of ways including sometimes sitting on the ground. The quickest way to clean off dirt, leaves, grass from your pants is a lint roller!

6. Fake Lashes

I love when Seniors add a natural fake lash to their make-up look for the day! It's a simple way to make your eyes pop in the photo! If you are going to wear lashes during your session be sure to purchase a pack with multiple lashes within. This way you can practice wearing them prior to your session as well as have a back up pair day of! This is the brand I wore on my wedding day and they lasted from sun up to sun down!

7. Chap Stick

You don't want crusty lips in your photo! Even if you choose to wear lipstick, sometimes your lips will dry out during your session. I suggest bringing along a clear chapstick to bring those babies back to life!

8. Living Proof Volume Blast

For when your hair needs a bit of a pick me up during your session! This is the best volume spray I've found that truly works! Pro-Tip: Only use it at your roots and make sure to play around with it prior to your session so you know how much you will need to use.

9. Concealer

Okay I've tried tons of concealers and for how well this one works & its reasonable price it simply cannot be beat! Plus they have so many shades to choose from to match your skin tone!

10. Urban Decay

The ultimate make up setting spray! It is a must have the day of your senior photos! I have always struggled with makeup lasting and looking good as time goes by but this setting spray works wonders! Simply spritz over face after applying makeup and voila you are good to go for at least the next 10 hours! It is worth every penny!
