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!
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.
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!
