One of my goals for 2015 was to build more Creative Concept shoots into my schedule. I found that this can be hard to do, but they are so revitalizing to me from a creative standpoint. This summer, I came up with the idea of a vintage swimsuit concept, and one of my 2016 Senior Models – Carly, was the perfect model for me! Amy Maxwell of Amy M Bridal Beauty did an amazing job on her hair and makeup, and helped to complete the “vintage” feel we were going for. I am a big believer that a bunch of props are not needed in order to result in a great shoot. Some sunglasses, a paper umbrella, a floppy hat and a cute cover-up are pretty much all we needed! Oh, and a big thanks to my friend Jana for letting me borrow her pool!
Towards the end we moved from the pool, and ventured over to the lake. As the sun faded into the horizon, a beautiful pinky-purple sunset resulted. I’m a big sucker for sunsets and silhouettes, and I couldn’t resist creating a few with Carly.
