I would spray some cowboy magic shine on them before you get the pictures done.. Make them extra shiny! Something I was thinking of doing for when I get my pictures done would be to paint like "Class of 2012" on one of their necks? Just something to play around with :).
palominolover and Live2Ride15 like this.

If you wanna look really nice, I would pull there maens and braids them up or band them, use a nice leather or clean halter, Of course have them clean and go from there :)

I just set up a senior's photo shoot to do at the end of this month with her horse! she has his mane pulled :) Idk if it would help but I can post pictures when I getthem done and see if you like them for your's!

Rather than paint why not try a stencil and clip 201? on them? Bathing, brushing, a bit of show sheen, one all natural, one in full tack, one groomed and banded for some nice bareback shots maybe?

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

i could put "class of 2012" on all three butts, like class on one of on another and 2012 on the last. and sit on the middle one looking back? im planing on putting bridles on 2 of the three as the other wont be a ridding horse anymore. and just my fun horse with a leather halter.

Wouldn't it be class of 2013 because you'll be a senior this fall? Unless you just graduated, but traditionally, senior pictures aren't done after graduation.

You can steal some tricks from halter-horse people...

Baby oil around muzzle and eyes

That purple white brightener shampoo works great for the paints

Baby powder for the lower legs or any white that doesn't clean up well

Also you can use braids for the mane that doesn't lay on both sides

Hoof polish if they're gonna be seen
