Carolina Photo Shoot

Getting to shoot a portrait session out of state was a wonderful opportunity; there were new landscapes, people to meet, and many beautiful sights. This time it was a photo shoot with an amazing young lady.

Choosing an accessory or two for the model to sport can really make a simple outfit particularly eye-catching. Here I had her wear a scarf and an antique hat over a plain tank top. While she would look pretty either way, the accessories push the photo to another level of interesting.

The same can be said for going barefoot. This change in wardrobe makes the pose, in the shot above, more organic. Now shoeless, she appears to be perching by the creek–a more compelling pose, in this instance, than simply squatting. I’ve learned over time that sometimes small adjustments can mean big improvements in portrait photography.

  1. Lovely shoot! I like the idea of going barefoot, maybe some photos emphasising that would be good too! Good light and wonderful modeling!

    Have a great day!

    Cheers,
