The summer may be coming to an end but it is never too late to pay homage to America with a fun American Girl themed photo shoot!
“The Summer ushers in a new wave of patriotism with the 4th of July being the highlight of so many summer memories,” said Amanda Coker of Dash Photography in Atlanta, Georgia. “These gals rocked the red lips and made this shoot so much more amazing than I could imagine.”
Check out this red, white and blue shoot below and read what Amanda had to say about it! Thanks for sharing your work with Seniorologie, Amanda!
What was your inspiration for this photo shoot?
American Threads, Americana, Rock-n-roll, and red lips!
Where did this photo shoot take place?
This session was at a small park in Johns Creek, GA, and a side-of-the-road field in the same area.
Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
Yes! I sent some ideas via Pinterest, and had the girls come up with a few pieces for the shoot. The more excited they got, the more ideas they had. One of the girls even helped with make up! She killed it!
What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
I shot this with a Canon Mark III, a 50mm 1.2, and a 100mm 2.8. We also used a 24×36 Etekcity reflector.
What time of day were these taken?
What is your favorite thing about this session?
Oh my. The light is just stunning. The outfit and make up combo is to die for. That red lipstick was the game changer (it really IS Maybelline).
What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
I wanted to show a litte more versatility in my images. Most of my work is very soft with neutral colors. We wanted to add some bold color to the soft light I hunt down. Two of these girls are heavily involved with theater, and they adore theater make up, so we wanted to incorporate that as well.
What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
Give them some ownership. Whether you’re planning their session, or a styled session, listen to their ideas. By giving them ownership, and maximizing their ideas, their enthusiasm will be through the roof!
