Wildflower Senior Model Sarah | Davidson, NC
One of the perks of being a Wildflower Senior Model is that occasionally I will text my girls and see if they’d be up for a spontaneous shoot. Usually it’s to test some lighting ideas or give me some creative inspiration. In this case with Wildflower Model Sarah, I had a few lighting tricks I wanted to practice, but at this point, I was also working on furthering my partnership with Jan, owner of Hazel & Indigo. I asked her if she had any outfits she needed updated photos of that Sarah could perhaps model, and thankfully she had a couple that were just so beautiful! We did a mix of Sarah’s own cute outfits she brought… just simple, slightly sporty looks… and Hazel & Indigo pieces. We actually got stopped in the middle of shooting so a couple of ladies could admire the black and white kimono. 🙂
We met up in Davidson one evening, not too long before July 4th. I adore shooting in Davidson. There’s just so much to work with. You can get both the cute main street look, then head to a few lesser used areas for a more gritty/urban look.
One of the ideas I had was using a combination of off camera flash with some twinkly lights. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get an assistant that evening, which made this a bit tricky. Lol. Usually, I’m fine with regular lighting, but I needed someone to hold the twinkly lights for me. Sarah obviously couldn’t help me, and I was determined to the get the shot in my head! I found a random water pipe on the side of the building, hung them strategically on that, and we shot on the ground in order to get those images. Sarah was such a trooper. I’m sure she thought I was ridiculous. haha! But I’m in love with how they turned out!
Since we were so close to July 4th, I brought some sparklers to play with. Why not be festive? 😉 Plus that jumpsuit!! So beautiful!!
