Amazon Women's & Teens Summer Outfits

Amazon Summer Dresses, Shirts, and Accessories for Women & High School Seniors Styled Photo Session

best of Amazon summer women’s outfits for high school senior photo session with dresses, rompers, sandals, wedges, summer shorts, tank tops and other accessories.

It’s summer! Which also means fun rompers, dresses, tanks and shorts. Layer things on for those bonfire nights and wear the least amount during the 90 degree Nebraska heat. We love summer sessions at sunset when the sun dips ever so slowly into the horizon and we thought it’d be great to create a fun style inspo post for our high school senior girls or even just for those wanting some fun summer looks for concerts or county fairs!

This posts theme is boho yellows, oranges, and pinks mixed with neutral toned creams, tans and browns. We went with colors that will stand out with green summer grasses and rich sun tan skinned. We felt this would be great for everyone to mix in with what they already might have in their own closet which is what we love about helping style our clients. Show us a few things that you already have and we can send you ideas to build off that. You don’t need an entire new wardrobe to create a magical session, just a few additional pieces to dress it up and freshen up your look! Our biggest suggestion is to pick a couple pieces with patterns and then keep the rest simplistic and focus on the textures instead of the fabrics.

*Keep in mind, A LOT of the links shared do have other color options so make sure to click the links if you see something you love! ;) Amazon is accessible to everyone so this is a fantastic way to share links with lots of options in sizing and colors. Please of course read reviews on sizing to make sure you’re getting quality items!


Amazon Dresses & Rompers

Alright our top ten inspo for dresses and rompers includes a lot of boho styled goodies. We like to recommend flowy types of outfits that don’t cling too tightly to the body. This enables us to shoot some fun, more candid and careful style shots. Those mixed with the more posed images are what give you the beautiful look for a styled session. So choose a few favorites, pair them up with fun bralettes (for modesty), stack on a few accessories or bracelets and necklaces and slip on a kimono or cardi towards the end of the evening. You’ll have a full beautiful look that you can wear even after your photo session!

Amazon Women’s Tanks & Shirts

We realize that not everyone is a fan of rompers or dresses and we actually recommend you mix it up and do a few different options. Sometimes we like to do sitting poses and dresses aren’t lady like for those things so here are a few cute shirt options! We usually recommend to think less patterns and more textures. That gives us depth and draws attention to the details but doesn’t pull away focus of you during the session. By choosing some basic colors you can really dress them up with accessories to bring out your personality!

Amazon Women’s Shorts

Shorts were a little tough to find more styles but we assumed you’d have some simple jean shorts or other shorts in your wardrobe already. Of course if you have something similar absolutely use that instead of buying new! If you’re going with a print on your shorts, we’d recommend a very simple plain white tank or tee shirt to go with it! ;)

Amazon Accessories

Accessories are so fun! We tossed in a few kimono’s to layer with as well as a couple of bralettes that have cute lace details in case those straps show. The second row is a couple different styles of earrings that are fun to dress up your whole style a little bit and the last row is some layered necklace options. Of course use what you’ve got at home too! ;)


Amazon Women’s Heels & Wedges Sandals

Can you tell I like shoes?! Also, can you tell that the espadrille is really my style right now? Yup. Wedges are grand when walking on uneven ground at a session so heads up, bring the cute shoes for flat surfaces and bring flip flops for walking in the tall grass areas! We won’t see your feet for those shots so no need to get those cute heels dirty!

Hey! My name is Shelby Timmerman and I’m a Dirt Road Photography Senior Model Rep! One of the reasons I became a Senior Rep is because I have always been uncomfortable when it came to taking pictures, so when I heard about the Rep team, I thought it would be a great opportunity to get out of my comfort zone! Kelsey is such a amazing photographer and she makes it so much fun! I’m involved in cheerleading and track at my high school in Wilber, Nebraska. I’m also in lots of other clubs at school like show choir, student council, TCBY and more! In the summer I show miniature horses with my family and in the winter I do competitive cheerleading! I plan to further my education, and hopefully cheer in college! I would love to become a Radiologist or something in the medical field. I definitely recommend Dirt Road Photography, Kelsey makes it so much fun and she’s super talented!

Bre Zoubek of Wilber, Nebraska

Bre Zoubek graduated high school from Wilber-Clatonia High School here in Wilber, Nebraska this past month. We’re excited she was one of our senior reps the previous year and wanted to share all about her beautiful fall session! It turned out gorgeous and we always love sharing some fun session throw backs from the fall that we didn’t have time to catch up on.

Bre was part of the Class of 2019 at WCHS here in Nebraska and is one of those girls that is filled with the best smile that can warm up any room. She is such a social butterfly and it’s so much fun watching her laugh and play with all the small kiddos whenever she’s out and about. The thing I love most about Bre is that she’s always willing to help those around her.

For Bre’s fall senior session we decided to do a little bit of everything. We started off at Doane University Campus in Crete, Nebraska where we did some more urban style shots. I used to shoot on the campus all the time, they have so many beautiful spots to stop and take pictures from flowers that bloom nearly all year to fun archaeological stops along the way. The bridges are beautiful but be careful near the pond, for some reason those swans are never a fan of me! ;) I think her style is always so perfect and her striped pants went perfectly with her yellow tank and denim jacket. Hands down my favorite outfit was her white dress with floral embroidery on it. It was just so whimsical and cute.

Thanks again Bre, it was a joy getting to know you this past year. Wishing you all the best in college and have a great summer girl!

Wilber-Clatonia High School - Friend High School - Tri-County High School - Norris High School

It’s finally starting to feel like spring and quickly turning into summer!! Congratulations to all of the Class of 2019 seniors that we just finished up shooting, you were an amazing class to get to know and I am so happy to see such great young adults entering the scary world ahead of you. Keep me updated, I like watching what my DRP seniors are up to!

With the end of a school year means it’s time to start thinking about the next crew of seniors. To me, that’s the most exciting part! Getting inquiries asking about pricing and info on senior sessions as well as meeting and getting to know the teens that are part of Class of 2020! Everyone knows I love my seniors, but what I love the most is the connections and friendships I make with not only them but their parents and families. It’s always a joy meeting newbies and learning their stories. Those stories have been kicked off by launching our new Senior Rep Program and my girls are the best. Ever. I can’t wait to meet more high school seniors from all over Nebraska!

We hosted our spring senior rep sesh night this past weekend and the girls and me froze our booties off but I’m thinking the girls could all agree it was totally worth it judging by these beautiful pictures! They look totally warm and happy, but in reality, the wind was blowing about 20 mph and the temps were about 50ish. Nebraska weather can be fun like that, it was in the 90’s a few days earlier and we had our heaters on the following week. Spring truly is a magical time of blooming flowers, allergies and tornadoes, but Nebraska always has it’s way of working magic into the mess. We choose a location around Wilber and Swanton, Nebraska area because I had the perfect spot filled with everything spring including flowers, barns, tall grass, a cute little pond (with my ducks I’ve named Bert and Ernie!) as well as the perfect sunset. The girls of course talked to the cows and goats while out on the farm that evening so I guess you could say it was perfect for everyone!

Our first location was a tiny hike but once we got down there, the girls loved the soft subtle look of the purple wildflowers that were growing near the pond. We zipped down there and each girl had the opportunity to pose and have fun while being photographed. What I love is that I literally sent off a short message and gave the girls full style options. I offered a direction and said bring what you want and it always works out the girls match so well without even planning on it. I like to make sure they can feel comfortable and expressive in their own outfits but as a whole, they all look great together.

What I love the most about my rep team is that the girls, while not getting their picture taken and are waiting, have small talk but make sure to include each other. While shooting I could hear them saying words of encouragement to the person getting theirs taken and it warms my heart. It’s tough being a teen, there’s so much judgement and to take the time to find women who lift each other up is extremely important to me. These girls will eventually be our community leaders! But, I think my favorite part of the day was watching them laugh and get to know each other! My whole intention of having a rep team is to find ways to bridge schools and bring girls together to empower and encourage each other.

Our next location was up on the yard. We choose an open area with these cute little white wildflowers growing and the perfect faded white painted barn. My favorite was the light leaking into the images but of course, no one besides a photographer truly notices those details. A couple of the girls did a quick wardrobe change and there was a sneak attack scare shenanigan going on behind the scenes then we were ready for more laughter, jokes and of course, pictures! Those Nebraska sunsets and my senior teens I just can’t brag about enough. I love the midwest!

And our final stop for the senior rep team girls was at the pond. We hiked around the back side and froze as the sun was almost down but the girls toughed it out and smiled like it was the best day ever! Between the crisp spring sunset and the beautiful fresh grass growing, the girls looked stunning. I swear i have the best of the best from local high schools and I am forever grateful for these girls who are willing to laugh at my bad dad jokes.

Match Your Personality!

The best advice I can give is don’t buy a bunch of clothes to dress like someone you’re not. Make sure you wear clothes that you’re comfortable in and your outfit selections should match your personality and your own personal style. If you don’t normally wear heels

Dress For The Season

You wouldn’t show up to a summer baseball game with Ugg boots and a CC Beanie would you? Of course not! So don’t show up for your summer session wearing a fall sweater and booties! You want to be comfortable and not sweating or freezing so just plan accordingly. It’ll look silly with your snow boots if there’s sunflowers blooming with bright green grass in the background.

Don’t Always Follow The Trends

As much as the cute crop top shirts are trending, trust me, you’ll thank yourself in twenty years when you look back and didn’t follow that trend. Choose outfits that are timeless and classic. Just remember, the things that are in style, don’t necessarily always photograph well and aren’t flattering on all body types. Find clothing items that you can move around and sit comfortably in.

Avoid Neon Colors (At All Costs!)

I honestly don’t think people realize how horribly these photography. Neons cast colors, not flattering colors, onto your skin. As a photographer, we try our best to keep the colors as natural as possible when we’re editing but sometimes we adjust things to highlight you or the background, with neons, that not only makes it difficult but next to impossible to change your skin tones if you’ve got bright pink gleaming up onto your face and neck. If you take one piece of advice, take away that you should avoid neon colors in your clothing choices!

Bring Options & Accessories

This may seem obvious, but don’t forget to pack extras! I highly recommend doing a consultation before your session where you send us your outfit choices and we can tell you if there’s small tweaks or changes to amp up the looks but if that’s not possible, just bring a few extra options and we can choose the day of your session. We like to see what you all have in mind so we can choose locations based upon outfits ahead of time and it’s helps tremendously to keep the day of your session running smoothly.

New Outfits

It’s always fun to go out and get new clothes but be mindful of your budget. Remember that if you pair your basics with just a couple new accessories you can really dress up what you might already have! Bring something you’re comfy in and then of course if you feel obligated to, go get yourself a new fancy outfit. That way you can feel fabulous and ready to rock your senior sesh!

Solid Colors

Solids are always in style. Just remember a simple white tee and jeans are super classic and timeless. Dress up the look with a kimono, necklace, fun shoes and BAM! We can work with prints but try to keep the patterns less bold, we want you to stand out and not be hidden with busy clothes. ;)

Props

For sure think of fun props! Highly recommended to bring something, anything to your senior photo session. If you’re into sports, bring a basketball. If you’re into video games, bring a controller and teach me all about the newest games! If you’re into farm life, we’d love you to bring a tractor of your favorite horse out to see us. The options to elevate your senior session truly are worth the extra effort to make your session unique for you.

Rep Your High School Or College Team

Everyone needs at least one picture of them reppin their alma mater! Let’s snap one quick shot repping your high school or maybe even the college you plan on attending. Hoodies or tee’s your closet is filled with I’m sure so grab one! You’ll love to look back at it someday!

Don’t Have large Logos

We recommend not to wear clothing with name brand tags or logos and nothing with large pictures. You’ll want these images to be classic and stand the test of time. These images with their personality outfit will get you the most sincere smiles and they will probably be the ones they brag about, the ones that make their cover photo on Facebook or Instagram.

I hope some of those tips help! If you have questions or want more information about booking please reach out to us. We’re always open to answer questions and help make the process easier on you guys, we cannot wait to make your senior session amazing for you!

Grayden Lester

Dorchester, Nebraska

Sweet baby boy Grayden there are so many words I could write to describe you but I think what sums it up the most is mommy’s words!! ;)

See!! I told you mommy had the best version about you. When she sent over the audio files that I requested, I sat there ugly crying listening to her words about you. I’ve watched your mommy and daddy’s love story unfold and hearing her talk about you made me so emotional! You are such a fun loving and bright young man who is full of laughter, love and life!!

When we talked about your third birthday we sat down and discussed fun ideas we could incorporate into your session. She mentioned your love of all things bull riding right now and I instantly knew the perfect location for your photo session at our farm near Dorchester, Nebraska. It just so happened that we’ve got cattle up on the yard so if all else failed, I knew you’d consider it a hit that you got to see cows that day. First we did the boring stuff that the adults wanted, the cute smiles, the posed pictures to announce that you’re turning three. We kept promising you that we’d get to go see the cows and pull out your buckin bull to play on. Then, once we finished up those pretty photos, you got to do the fun stuff!

You wore the cutest little outfits to your session, from your blue striped shirt to the perfect cowboy attire of a plaid button up shirt, wrangler jeans and cowboy boots you coordinated perfectly for the entire photoshoot. I’m so glad you choose to also bring your pint sized chaps, cowboy hat and bull rider vest, it truly was the make or break of the whole day!

We talked about your love of bulls, you told me all about your favorite bull, Red Rocket, and then things got fun. We found the perfect “Grayden Sized” bale and you stole the show! You hopped up on that bale and showed us exactly how to tighten your hand down to saddle up for a bull ride. My favorite part that left me laughing so hard I couldn’t even get pictures was when you yelled out, “let’s go boys!” and then started bucking around just like the real bull riders too. Sweet boy, you are the most precious thing I’ve seen in awhile!!

We played and giggled the entire session, you bring so much light to the world and your precious little blonde hair and blue eyes are the perfect combo of sweet and ornery!

She is always smiling, for sure is the type of person that walks into a room and can brighten everyone’s day and the one thing I love the most about Lizzie, is that she’s always willing to volunteer and lend a hand if someone needs something.

Lizzie is active in FBLA, is in National Honor Society, Student Council, Legion Auxiliary, VFW Auxiliary, is an elementary teacher’s aide, and is active in volleyball as well as so many other things.

Lizzie was one of my Class of 2019 senior reps and did an awesome job helping me out when I needed something. She for sure brought laughter to our sessions and I absolutely adore her sense of style. She planned out all her own outfits and clearly I wish I could keep her around just to help style myself and my future seniors!

At Lizzie’s session we choose one of our farms located near Dorchester, Nebraska and went with a super earthy vibe. Not over the top “farm” feel but more nature and just boho vibes. She wore some amazing outfits like the jean skirt with the perfect yellow floral shirt that coordinated perfectly with the wild flowers we found in late summer. The sun was setting so perfectly that evening and I swear it’s what us photographers dream of! ;)

She also wore a beautiful white flowy long sleeved shirt that had dainty lace details in it. Paired it up with some cute Steve Madden wedge sandals and distressed denim jeans it was amazing for the white flowers we found and ideal with tall grass. I’m totally serious when I say she did amazing with the outfits.

I always suggest to my seniors to grab a few tops to swap out during your session for a quick change and that’s exactly what Lizzie did. She also brought the most pretty soft green tank again, with great lace details, that flowed and looked gorgeous when we put her with that rustic car.

For senior sessions I love clothes that all flow together and give off the same vibes. I like that Lizzie went with flowing and neutrals. When we mix all the final images together in an album, they look stunning together! If you have too many different styles mixed in, sometimes it can get overwhelming and the overall feel of the session doesn’t flow as nicely. Lizzie did perfect combining all the outfits to function together.

I asked Lizzie what she thought of her experience and here are her words:

“Working with Kelsey was absolutely amazing!! She had so many great ideas and gorgeous locations! I was very comfortable and always laughing and LOVED how the pictures turned out! There was never a dull moment and Kelsey is such a genuine and hilarious person. :)”

So there you have it, even Lizzie LOVED spending time with me, almost as much fun as I had with her ;)

Thank you Lizzie for trusting me with your precious senior memories. You session for sure went down as a favorite and I am so proud of who you’ve became. I’ve known you forever, and watching you come to events with your mom as a pre-teen to seeing you bloom into a beautiful young lady, I have no doubt you’ll go on to become successful in any career path you choose. Lizzie is going to the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and will be studying elementary education. I know she’ll be fantastic being a future teacher! ;) Keep doing you girlfriend, you’re a true leader!

Emerson Rose

Clatonia, Nebraska

Just a quick little sneak peek of miss Emerson Rose to tide you over while I work my magic on her newborn session photos. I have known her mommy and daddy forever and was actually lucky enough to be in their wedding. The love I have for you is more than you’ll know sweet baby girl and I cannot wait to watch you grow. You’re such a precious baby girl and the sweetest most innocent face is my fav.

Emerson arrived at her newborn session ready to sleep and just be cuddled. We included the cutest little cowhide rug that is actually included in her nursery that was a gift from her cousins. I love including little bits of nursery decor or lifestyle things into sessions. Little Emerson will grow up loving cattle since daddy works with show cattle and in Nebraska, we take our cows pretty serious ;)

I love getting to work with newborns and cannot wait to share more sneaks from this session. Emerson did fantastic and we captured some of the best newborn pictures ever of her. These tiny details will quickly fade and babies don’t look like true newborns for too long so it’s great to snap those memories while they last. If you’re interested in booking a newborn session contact us, we’d love to give you more information about the sessions as well as talk about our milestone packages! As a reminder, newborn sessions are held within the first two weeks of birth for the babies and are recommended to be booked in advance to ensure we have room in our schedule. We place your due date on our calendar and stay in touch as you get closer, it also helps so we can plan a unique and custom session for you!
