Creative Portrait Session

A rainy day is the perfect day for a photo session, right!?  …as a matter of fact, the answer is yes!  To be honest I was a little concerned as we headed to the designated location and the rain drops were steadily pounding on the windshield.  But I kept my fingers crossed the NC would stay true to form and the little shower would soon pass.  Thankfully that is exactly what happened!

So before meeting this beautiful young girl for her Creative Portrait Session, she had told me that she wanted to include her bow and arrow in the photos and that she wanted to be a super hero… but like a cool one.  I loved the idea and we talked about our mutual interest in t.v. shows like The Flash and The Arrow.  For her portraits we explored the idea of strength both as a kick butt individual and then with a quieter, feminine strength.

I loved her excitement for her photos and her willingness to explore, design and create!  Such a beauty!

Vintage Diner

This past weekend I had an awesome styled photo session!  I had a few lovely models from the Piedmont Swing Dance Society join me at a local diner for a 1930’s/40’s/50’s vintage styled photo session.  (Thank you to them all!)  It was wonderful to see them dressed up and to have such a neat location to photograph at!  This was a fun and creative way to celebrate a pastime that they truly enjoy.  Some are recently familiar with the swing dance scene and some had been dancing for years!  Either way this styled session was a great success and I can’t wait until the next one… maybe it will be with you!!?  What would be your idea for an amazing styled session?
