I want to thank these two girls for being some of my very first senior models. I was so new to the whole thing and really appreciate them helping me out and allowing me to learn and practice on them! You could tell Katelyn & Rosie are a riot; they were laughing and joking the whole time. An absolute to work with. Here are a few shots from their session back in April.
A few words about Rose? AHHHHmazing. Talented. Gorgeous. Smart. Athletic. Model.
We met in Plymouth and instantly I felt like I’ve known her for years. She was so easy to talk to, super friendly, and I didn’t even have to direct her posing. She was totally spot on.
It was easy photographing her and you’ll be able to see it in these sneak peeks.
During our session, we were stopped by a New York photographer named Ryan Duffy who was interested in my work and her modeling. How cool!
I always tell myself to try something new. I’m still discovering what makes my heart flutter when I photograph it. I’m still finding my niche. I’m still full of ideas and things I want to accomplish, like, yesterday. So I figured, I shoot outdoors in the greenery all the time. Let’s try something different. Let’s shoot in a quaint little downtown area. And guess what? I LOVE IT!
Working with these three sisters was fantastic. Even with crazy hectic schedules they were able to get together and model for me… and just in time for a Mother’s Day surprise!
Not to mention, it was my first set of female twins and I was super pumped. I know, corny, but still. I love when twins don’t necessarily look identical. I love the individualism of each one. I love my job. I love what I do. And these girls made me love trying new things.
Here are a few of my favorite images:
It’s always been a dream of mine to photograph a ballerina. Always. Maybe it’s because I never had the talent or coordination to be one myself, but there is just something mesmerizing about how graceful they are.
So when I had the opportunity to work in-studio with a fellow local photog, Kelton Kaye, I jumped on it of course! At the time, I didn’t know I was going to be working with a prima ballerina, but boy oh boy was I excited when she walked in!
Maddy and her mom were so wonderful. I seriously can’t say enough nice things about them. So, I’ll just show you a few of my favorite shots from their session. =)
When I first saw her in her tutu and pointe shoes, I envisioned an entire black & white series, but then when I uploaded them for retouching, I realized I loved the color just as much, so I did both.
I had a lovely time and can’t wait for her to see her complete collection of images!
I want to preface this by saying I am truly blessed to have such a support team behind my growth as a photographer. There are many other local photogs in my area that are so kind and generous with their knowledge and I am so happy to have met them and look forward to meeting more!
Jessica, from M & J Photography in Northville, and I went exploring downtown Plymouth last week and I was able t ocapture a few shots of her on our journey. Here’s a little peek at our fun time!
Jessica, you have been such a wonderful person and I am so glad to have met you. =)
Another one of my gorgeous senior models! I know, I’m so lucky!!! =)
For starters, Charlie was fantasic to work with. She was so natural in front of the camera and is also interested in photography! Not to mention a crazy good basketball player, from what her coach seems to tell me. Of course we had to add a few shots with a ball.
And because she was willing to head anywhere my imagination led us, we stopped at random trucking places, walls, and even a beaten path. I can’t wait to work with her again!
I was dying to get out there and shoot again. What can I say, I JUST LOVE IT! I can hardly wait for the weather in MI to actually be spring. Warm one day, below freezing with hail the next… driving me completely mad!
Lucky for me, I know of a gal who lived down south for a while and still had a bit of country charm. Karen and I went on an adventure and I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots from the chilly day:
