Wildflower Photography Senior Shoot

In January, I was contacted by the talented, and super sweet, Hailey Kemper, of Wildflower Photography. And what do you was another senior photo session. I seriously think these are becoming a "thing" for me and I am totally OK with that! SO we get to planning and have everything squared away for this creative shoot. We are going to set up outside, in a field, orchids in bloom, all whimsical ( I hope I painted the picture for you), and BAM! Mother nature messes us up, not once, but TWICE! I mean seriously!!! So Hailey, being her creative self, comes in with the ultimate save and plans this industrial, editorial and fun shoot...Indoors! Fast forward to April and this shoot finally took place at The Laboratory Mill in Linconlton, NC.

Since we changed the venue...we had to change the makeup. What was once going to be light, bright and clean, was now edgy and dark. I enjoyed experimenting with some color and textures on the eyes for this shoot. Since the majority of my clients are brides, it was fun to do something different. I used a combination of creams and powders to create dimension on the face. I loved the willingness of the models to go with any ideas I had for their look. They really embraced the creativity. Hailey did an amazing job of editing this shoot and using lighting to create such magic in these pictures. If you are looking for an amazing photographer who can  in any space...Hailey is your girl!

Melissa Lynn Hunt 2017 Senior Shoot!!

If there is one thing I have learned more than ever lately... It is...Have a SAY YES ATTITUDE...and enjoy what you do every day..Ok..that is actually two things, but you get the idea! So last year when I had my first opportunity to work with Melissa Lynn Hunt,  I said..YES!! Little did I know that working with her that first time{and her amazing Senior Models} would open up so many doors for me to be creative. I was also quickly reminded of how important it is to get up every day with purpose in your work and a true love for you do. Melissa does that every day, and I feel honored to be on a creative team with her behind the camera. She cultivates positivism in these young women through encouragement, kindness, friendship and love... Over the last few weeks, I have watched young ladies come alive in front of the camera. It has been such a special experience. I look forward to working with the #mlhseniors again <3

A few weeks back, Melissa had her kick-off shoot for her upcoming Seniors. This was the most fun I have had on a photo shoot...maybe.... ever. Remember I just what you do every single day...Well this was on of those days where I was BEAMING with love for what I do. I had the pleasure of being on the beauty team for hair and makeup with Layne Barter, of Layne Barter Makeup, and Sabrina Laine, with Be Pretty . We had a BLAST glamming these gorgeous gals for their Powder Puff Football shoot. Melissa provided the music, the energy and the inspiration for this amazing day. Many of the girls had never had professional hair and makeup, so it was such an honor to take them through their first experience. 

These are some of my favorite pictures from the team shoot and a few individual shots of the girls I worked with that day. Enjoy the pictures!

And remember...Love what you do...everyday <3
