Last Minute Photo Shoot

I got a phone call and had to throw together a photo shoot really fast.  The model got the clothing and makeup done in Saginaw and they drove to Bay City for the shoot.

It was about 4pm in the afternoon and there was not a cloud in the sky.  No assistant and all my equipment was in Saginaw.  I simply had a model, camera with 3 lenses, a great location and full blasting sun!

The pictures turned out great.  Now we need to decide which one the client is going to use for their magazine ad.

Saturday Fashion Shoot

The fall 2008 BB Dakota coats just keep arriving.  This Saturday we had two models:
Paige – who last month competed in the 2009 Miss Michigan Teen USA pageant and won the most photogenic award!
BB Dakota Marlis Coat
Jolene – this was the first time we worked with Jolene and she was great! Jolene brought along her twin babies and we had to get pictures of them also.
BB Dakota Alpha

The weather was mild and we decided to have some fun at the photo shoot and take the pictures outside. We walked down the street, leaned on old buildings and threw leaves around. Everyone had a great time and we got some fun shots.

Vanessa’s First Time

A models first photo shoot always seems a little stiff and awkward. I had the opportunity to work with Vanessa this weekend. She had done a runway show 2 weeks ago but this was her first photo shoot. We were shooting clothing for a clothing boutique.

For any model the more experience that can be gained by working with different locations and photographers, the more natural the pictures look.
