Looking like a model can be expensive. But done the right way, you can help your senior clients stay in their budget while looking and feeling like a model in their senior sessions.
Photographer Michelle Albright of Michelle Albright Photography in Manchester, Maryland shared a gorgeous session based on a look for less idea.
“I saw a look on @thebudgetbabe’s blog that I thought was gorgeous and perfect for one of my clients,” said Michelle. “I wanted to see if we could recreate the look for less.”
