“The 20’s Today” – Senior Model Shoot, Day 2

WARNING – HUGE POST!  But there just was no other way to show it!  You need to see allllll of them…. so here we go.

 

Senior Model Shoot, Day 2.  I was super excited about this theme.  Back in May, I had been over at a family member’s home for a party.  I saw this vintage 1929 Ford Model A in the driveway and that got my wheels turning.  I began to wonder if I could incorporate that into my senior model shoot.  I wasn’t sure how I was gonna do it, but if I could get permission to use the car, I knew I could figure it out and make it amazing!  His uncle generously agreed to drive the car to our location and I was so excited.  I kept this big prop as a surprise for the girls and I am pretty sure they all thought it was awesome.

This car is special because it once belonged to my husband’s grandfather.  It has many original elements – like the back roll down shade, original seat/coverings, paint, and ORIGINAL KEYS (which I think is the craziest part).  I actually loved that it wasn’t repainted/restored because I love the color it is now & knew it was going to photograph really well.

Ok, enough about the car!  More on the girls!

In May, they learned the theme of our shoot – “The 20’s Today”.  I wanted to pull some class 1920s elements – including women’s fashion and jewelry – but I didn’t want it look to look costumey or stereotypical – a.k.a. – no flapper look.  I am not a total fru-fru type person either – and wanted to keep the focus on the girls  – so we went with more simple patterns and just brought in some art deco accessories to glam it up a bit.  One girl is in advanced fashion design in school and actually designed and sewed her own dress!  I love it when things like that happen because it just makes the whole thing so much more meaningful.

We lucked out and a perfect weather day with magical light.  Couldn’t have planned it better myself!

Yes, it is so awkward for me to be on the other side of the camera.  Oh, whatever!photo jewels rockwall seniorLast shot of the day…. me and the girls.  THANK YOU for reading/looking this far if you’ve made it down here!

 

I think we acheieved the goals from this styled session…. we all had an amazing time and were exhausted afterwards!  I loved that the girls were up for anything and just went with the flow.  I loved all of the special touches they added thru their hair and makeup, too.

 

What a memorable even this was not only for me, photography-wise, but especially for the senior girls.  It has been a privilege to have them on my team this year and I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
