I learned that high schools in Connecticut contract with a photography studio for the senior portraits of the graduating class. From what I have seen, they’re outdated and corny. Enter: Me. I don’t want to photograph the whole school. What I want is a select number of girls — the ones who want something different and the ones who want to show off their unique personality + style. Enter: Philippine + Gabby. I met Philippine at LF where she used to work. Aside from being adorable with her I-want-to-make-a-wig-out-of-her-gorgeous-long hair and beautiful smile, she’s bubbly + fashion forward. After talking I knew she’d be a perfect fit for my studio as a senior rep. Looking for an additional rep, Philippine introduced me to Gabby. Gabby’s also bubbly, outgoing, and sweet. We got to scheduling a joint session and because I want the girls to feel beautiful all of my packages include hair and makeup. Enter: My girl, Amy of Catie and Amy. Amy’s styling is dope and unparalleled.
You should have seen the obscene amount of clothes they brought with them. Amy and I loved how bold and uninhibited they were with their style, which actually made me think to myself that I need to loosen up the self-expressive belt. After all, YOLOOOO! So after hair and makeup was done and outfits chosen we made our way to Edgergton Park in New Haven. I started out photographing Philippine and as we switched each would run to their car to change into their next outfit. It was cold and drizzling that day, so I’m grateful Amy actually was able to tag along and help with their hair.
It was so much fun photographing them and look forward to what the future brings with breaking into the senior market. I’m already starting to look for reps for 2015, so if you or you know someone who is interested holler atcha girl (click contact above ↑)!
