One dress, two tweens, and six great shots in under an hour

August 29, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I had two beautiful sisters in my studio last month. To stretch myself creatively, I decided to try for three unique shots of each girl, each wearing the same outfit – a lacy vintage dress.

During a portrait sitting I like to start with a classic three quarter pose.  I can see how the person moves, figure out their better side, and observe how at ease they are in front of the camera.

What I really love, though, are the close-ups. The human face never ceases to fascinate me! Here I’ve added variety by placing hands in the frame, shooting into the backlight, and blowing a fan to get movement in the hair.
