A Portrait Session

Thursday, June 27th, 2013 15

A while back, I dreamed up a little photo shoot and asked a dear friend (and almost former student who will be graduating with her PhD in August — WOOT!) if she’d like to play along. I had been wanting to take photos of Alysondra for some time and had come up with some fun locations and ideas. She jumped in full force and we had an awesome afternoon together. We went to a few different places and she brought a few shirts to make some costume changes. We laughed and played and had so much fun. Here are some of my absolute favorites from the shoot.

Our first stop…




Time for a wardrobe change and new location…




And last but not least, one of my very favorite Polaroid photos ever…

SpectraSoftone_AlyCarLooking back over these photographs makes me smile and remember the fun Alysondra and I had during this portrait session. And it makes me want to dream up new ideas and locations for photo shoots, and keep shooting portraits. I had no idea a few years ago that I would grow to love taking photographs of people, but it’s happened. We grow. We shift. We like new things. Change is good.

    Think your work from this session is just gorgeous, and I’m so on-board with the grow/shift/change is good plan. I hope it’s happening to me right now.

    Gorgeous work. The light is amazing. It’s very…glowy. For lack of a better term.

    I love the settings you chose. They are fun, complex and full of pops of color. My fav of the grouping is #2. It just seems to speak to me for some reason.
