Hey all! This season has been quite busy with my favorite subjects and I am enjoying it. I love my seniors and models! In fact, I am getting spoiled. I think this is the type of photography that I want to stick with. That means no weddings, no events, no children, just seniors and models. I haven’t committed to that yet but I feel the change coming. Big changes coming to Poetic Edge and I am excited about the brand that I am building.
Meet the charming Annaliese. I loved meeting this girl and her family. They live in a cute little house in the Dilworth area of Charlotte NC. When I arrived, her dad and the sound of old Jazz music greeted me. I walked into their world of vintage culture and sophisticated class. I was in love. If you know anything about me, you know that I am secretly a hippy. Flowy tattered skirts, long hair, lavender, floppy hats, gypsy style…the list goes on. I love things like Free People and Anthropologie. In fact, one day I’d love to work commercially for any of those brands. Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People if you are reading this: I NEED A JOB! 🙂
Annaliese took me up to her adorable room fit for a young woman with dreams. We visited both her closet and her mothers and I was in awe. Normally folks get excited over Louboutins and Chanel, as do I, but go back to my hippy statement. I love vintage looks. They had almost everything you could think of. The first set of images where Annaliese is wearing the felt hat, I knew that I wanted to shoot this look on their couch in their living room. The cloudy light was spilling into the window and highlighting all the little Parisian details of this relaxed and incensed room.
The rest of the session was such a breeze because Annaliese rocked it. I have always wanted to shoot in the Dilworth/East Blvd area of Charlotte. It is gorgeous year round. I am hoping to get more seniors from the Myers Park, Providence, and South Mecklenburg High Schools. If there are any seniors that are looking for a great experience, contact me.
All senior sessions come with hair and makeup, outfit consultation, and a fully customizable location/session catered to you and your personality. Do you want the Blue Ridge mountains? I’ll drive up to them. Do you want the charming Charleston and ocean? I’ll do it. Vintage? Let’s do it. Let’s make your senior session as unique as you are. After all, you will never be this young again. 🙂
