This year I'm adding a fashion magazine style option to my senior sessions (think Vanity Fair). The past few months I've studied up on new lighting setups, styling and posing techniques. But before I tried it on an actual senior client, I wanted to test it out. So I contacted Maria, a beautiful dancer I've photographed a number of times for Vibe Dance Center here in Green Bay. Maria is toying with the idea of modeling and when you check out her photos below, you'll quickly see how the camera loves her. For a light and airy look, I had Maria wear a tulle skirt paired with one of her own tops. Hair and make-up was done by Dana Michelle. We also added a bit of air to her hair. I don't think I ever want to shoot long hair again without a fan!
It was fun to see how much the mood and feel changes with each location and lighting change!
Loved this black on black set!
Next, we played a little "simon says" of modeling and had fun with a ton of different looks. Maria's a natural.
For the last look, Maria wore some of her own clothes that had an edgier feel, so I lit it with some edgier lights. What a contrast to her first set!
This is a perfect add-on for a senior session (on location + studio)! Contact me to set up your session!
