2014 SENIOR: Maddie Mikulin
SESSION TYPE: Style Session
LOCATION: Combo (Studio+location)
MAKE UP ARTIST: Sara Williams
PHOTOGRAPHER: Teri Fode (assistant Tori Fode)
This senior session is being used as the PERFECT example of a senior photo shoot complete with artistry collaboration by Client/Photographer/Makeup Artist. Our STYLE SESSION offers our high school senior client an amazing experience of being pampered with makeup application and styling for her special photo shoot day.
Maddie is actually one of our 2014 Spokesmodels so I already knew prior to her official senior photo session that she was very photogenic and stylish. She called and asked about including a floral wreath and I knew she would be the perfect candidate to create a look I had been wanting to create for some time. After she sent her outfits via text and described some of her accessories I knew exactly which floral wreaths I would create. My vision was a very feminie, soft and pretty look with a tinge of vintage. Maddie literally made that vision come to life in these images.
One of the things we REALLY encourage our senior clients to do is to bring PROPS…but not JUST props for the sake of adding something to the photo—rather, items that MEAN something and portray her/his personality. Maddie came with lots of amazing things to show her fun and creative side in her senior pictures. She brought vintage suitcases (her mom used her resources and friends on Facebook to ask if any one had any vintage cases!), her guitar, a drama mask (she’s active in theater at her school), a chalkboard to write her favorite scriptures, and amazing accessories and clothing choices. Oh…and mom. I always encourage mom to come along because senior portrait day is part of senior year and it’s fun and exciting and an experience mom will not want to miss.
LOTS OF PHOTOS in this post? YES! Because I want to share exactly how diverse a photo shoot can be when including items that can be used as props and also how important it is to select outfits that are completely different, one from the other. Notice how Maddie shows her different sides and interests in each sequence!
Using this post as an example of our SENIOR STYLE SESSION gives me an amazing excuse to share more than just a few of my faves :)
So yes, THIS is an amazing example of lots of diversity in outfits, accessories and props. And an amazingly FUN and FABULOUS day.
