A Fashionable Classic Photoshoot

 

fashionable senior portrait at Upham arch miami university
Lauren already knew she wanted to use Upham Arch at Miami University (Oxford).

Lauren and I brainstormed her session.  I always let my senior go first so I can get true thoughts and ideas.  I asked her “give me words to describe what you want your session to feel like.”  She chose “fashionable, classic, timeless, vintage, Chanel, Jackie O”.  By her giving me these words, I can envision the style she’s going for.  Then we start brainstorming locations.  Most times seniors don’t have a location in mind, if that’s the case I will offer suggestions that I feel will fit their vision.  Lauren already knew she wanted to use Upham Arch at Miami University (Oxford) and a few other areas around campus as well.  The image above is my absolute favorite from her session!  That arch is a wind tunnel!  Holy moly!!  No where else on campus was windy that day, that tunnel was crazy!  That’s why I now love it!

Vintage style senior session using a 1968 Cadillac
Lauren channeling Jackie O for this pose

Lauren owns a crap ton of scarves!  I have never seen so many!  We kept it to just one for this shoot though.  We channeled Jackie O and Chanel.  I think it turned out perfectly!  We used her parents 1968 Cadillac and we went to the Fairgrounds in Brookville, IN.

Old world feel at the Miami University campus
For this shot, all I did was pick the spot and click the shutter. Lauren is such a natural!

Ok, you are going to go coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs….Lauren made this dress!  Yup!  She’s been in 4-H for like ten years!  She has won numerous awards, including Grand Champion and has placed 1st-3rd to name a few!  Not only is she AWESOME at making outfits, she is pretty darn good in photography too!  She is a super hard-worker, she didn’t just “poof” into an amazing girl.  Anyway, for this location, we were going for Old-World, Elizabethan Era.  Again, I think we did pretty good.  Well, in this shot, all I did was pick the spot and click the shutter.  Lauren is such a natural beauty!
