Every year I get the chance to work with so many wonderful HS Seniors, and even more so with my model team. A lot has changed since I started CSP. But the one thing I knew from the start is that senior sessions where always my favorite. So this year I decided to start offering hair and make-up as an added fun way to make my girls look and feel great. Just by chance I had done a styled session with one of my favorite photog friends from Jessica Lacey Photography, and she had Teddi from Bobby Pins & Blush come out for it . OMG I loved watching her work, the air brush make-up was so amazing in camera, and having her available for touch ups was great. I knew instantly I wanted to work with them. Working with BP&B has been amazing if you’ve had a LUXE session you know the benefits of having a HMUA on site for a look change or to keep you looking amazing in the heat. Having the ability to have a team of artists come out was key to making the True Vintage shoot come to life.
Since I wanted the shoot to have a real vintage feel I spent a ton of time planning, looking at vintage suits. I scored most on Ebay and etsy and one from a friend. Fitting vintage suits is not an easy task but we did well. I’m so lucky to have these girls in my life. They are always up for what ever crazy last-minute thing I spring on them. I know I work better under pressure so I tend to procrastinate on almost everything. The pool was going to be tough, if it been had not been for Tom & Julie Gill opening up their home and pool for us to use. A million thank you’s three months later!
My models for this shoot where Paige Maxwell Senior La Plata ( no Paige I don’t have favorites) Emily Fleming La Plata, Sydney Currie Chopticon and Kirsten Sheffield Westlake. I love how they jumped right into their roles. Sydney and Paige had never met but where like best friends, and it was perfect in camera. Emily always brings some fresh attitude mixed with a whole lot of fun and keeps everyone going. You guys truly rock. I also appreciated the time you put in to stay and help clean up and put the Gills house mostly back together.
HMUA rocked this session it some thing to have a vintage suit, it brings it to a whole new level when the hair and make up are amazing ! Thank you so much! Rachel Helsley and Kristen Stewart of Bobby Pins & Blush Check them out http://www.bobbypinsblush.com
