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.

Last weekend I had another opportunity to work with an aspiring model. She recently graduated from Barbazon school. This was her first photo shoot and I’m still editing the pictures.

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!
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.
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.
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.
BB Dakota Fall 2008 Frock dress in moonstone. This was one of the first images from the day.
BB Dakota Fall 2008 Sasha skirt and Claudette blouse. This was about one hour later and Vanessa appears a lot more relaxed and natural.
BB Dakota Fall 2008 Arcade Hoodie in green. At this point Vanessa was getting comfortable in front of the camera and is starting to get “into” the shoot.
For any model the more experience that can be gained by working with different locations and photographers, the more natural the pictures look.
