Busy week this week. Had fun maternity photography session, some headshots and couple of amazing boudoir photography sessions.
One of my favorite shoots this week was one with a young model named Jillian. She wanted some photographs to start her portfolio. As you can guess, she is looking to start her modeling career soon. She needed some new pictures for her portfolio that she could send to different agencies to see which one wanted to hire her. Becoming a model is difficult. Not only do you need an amazing portfolio of images, but you can also be asked to create a resume with your experience on it. This helps agencies to work out if the model is a beginner or not. Jilian mentioned to me that she would contact https://www.arcresumes.com/local/michigan/ for help writing her resume if any agencies asked her for one. She really wants to be a model, so she said that her resume would have to be good. She was very interested in creating a fashion look. Working with young models is always fun as you never know how they will be in front of the camera.
Some are shy and others are just bouncing off the wall with energy. Either way, my job as a photographer is to bring their personality out in the photographs and also push them in new directions to create a diverse modeling portfolio.
We shot both in studio and on location. We had to get an early start as summer is here and we don’t want to be outside much. Jillian was a trooper and we got some great outdoor shots. We then moved to the cool studio for the remainder of her shoot. Music and AC make for a fun shoot.
Later this week I am doing a shoot for Flashes of Hope, a great organization. Check back as you will want to read about this shoot.
