Please give details about this session:
Madison is a beautiful girl that is working on building her modeling portfolio! She is unique in her outfits she chooses and she is amazing at doing her own makeup! She wanted something different for her senior pictures so we hunted down an old house and went to a lake where she wanted to get in the lake even though the water was around 50 degrees! She was brave but she rocked it and her images come out flawless. This gal has like perfect skin!
What gear did you use?
I shoot with a Canon 7D and my fav go to lens is my 85mm. For wider angle shots inside the house, I used my 28mm. Off camera flash was used in all the images as either my light source or for filler light.
What vendors did you use?
Other than the clothes that Madison brought to her session and Lake Carnico where we shot most of her session, no other vendors were featured in this session.
Tell us about yourself and your business.
I am a self taught senior and teen photographer located in the small town of Cynthiana, KY. I cater to senior girls who want to feel like a full blown model during their session! Complete with professional hair and makeup (except with Madison, she did her own for her session), my girls come to me because they want to feel beautiful. Which is what I strive to do with my business. I want every girl, big or small, to feel as though their images could be featured in a magazine. Being published in both print and on the web is something the girls love about me and along with me, they have their fingers crossed that their sessions are good enough to be featured. I may only spend a few hours with these girls, but I share a connection with each and every one of them and I love them all to death!
Please share one tip that you found to be successful to share with other photographers in this industry.
My one tip to other senior photographers is connect with your seniors. Don’t just take their picture. Help them look as beautiful on the outside that you know they are on the inside! Don’t ever stop learning too! Learn posing for different shapes. Girls are so critical of themselves these days so be sure and capture images that show their true selves, that show their inner beauty. I wouldn’t trade my craft for anything in the world! Help your seniors as you would want someone to help you when you are getting your picture taken and don’t ever, ever say anything negative about an image you shot because that will kill their confidence in an instant!
