I’ve been waiting to share Cassidy’s golden, glowing sunset senior pictures in a state park until my new blog was up and running! I love it when I walk away from a shoot with new inspiration, and Cassidy did that for me! I was in LOVE with her style and how uniquely hers it was. As you can imagine, I see a lot of the same trends repeated, which is totally fine, but when I have something new to photograph, it breaths new creative life into my bones!
I love that Cassidy wore jeans that were overly ripped. I love that she mixed long black nails with her soft, pink ethereal dress. I love that she had a cute shorter haircut with girly curls, mixed with more loose, boyfriend jeans. She was just straight up cool. And I may or may not have gotten a manicure just like Cassidy’s after hanging out with her!
Seniors, don’t feel like you need to wear what everyone else is wearing to your shoots. I LOVE photographing unique, specific, weird, WHATEVER type of style; I want you to have an opinion and look like yourself, not match what you are wearing to what’s most popular. Do you love the ’20’s? Cool! Let’s take some vintage-inspired pictures. Do you have a more grungy look? Great. Let’s go find a random alley downtown and do a high-fashion senior photo shoot.
I also love this shoot because I feel like I got rid of my fear of harsh light. In the portrait photography world, you’re mostly told to find soft or indirect light. But I stuck Cassidy right in the sun, facing the direct sunlight. And I love how it turned out! It really brought out her cheekbones, glowing complexion, and the light in her eyes. It’s so fun to “debunk” these principles and make something different out of a situation I would usually avoid.
