Every business has its slow seasons, Photography in particular, especially in Minnesota! Even Newborn and Child Photography in the Studio can be slow this time of year. Everyone had their portraits taken around the December, and we’re all taking a much-needed break from all things holiday. And who wants to go outdoors in this???
During the slow season, I like to schedule a few shoots that are just for me. To learn, grow, try new things; ask a model and style the shoot how I would like. Sometimes, those ideas evolve beyond me.
This fashion portrait photography session started out as having an athletic feel. Anyone who knows me knows that fitness is a large part of who I am, and that is a direction I have been wanting to go with my fashion portrait photography. I have known my model, Keren, for years. We actually met at the gym, and I knew she had similar feelings toward fitness, which was why I thought of her! So I asked her to bring some sporty clothing, and a dress or two if she wanted to add some fashion images for herself.
Here is our obligatory sporty shot:
As you can see, Keren rocks it, no problem! But we both quickly realized that we were feeling more of a dressed up fashion portrait photography shoot. She could make a paper bag look pretty, but when she started putting on her dresses… Well, first THIS happened…
And then THIS happened!
But seriously, could have been a paper bag, folks! She didn’t even look in a mirror to style her hair. I wish I could do that!
I can’t believe this was a year ago now and I’m just now blogging it! Keren, we need to get together again for another fashion portrait session!
