There’s Always A First Time: Cary, North Carolina Photographer

The inspiration for this photo shoot was “hats”, yep, hats. I decided to capture images of the model wearing hats two different ways; the first look evoking an era reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn/ Diahann Carroll, Old Hollywood glamour and; the second look, an edgier glam-rock vibe. The juxtaposition of both looks using one model was absolutely brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed the image capturing process on this shoot. 

Admittedly, all the final images do not include hats and in keeping with the theme of not adhering fully to the theme (Ha!), I went totally off-script with the addition of a car; the images with the car were captured late evening, incorporating the mellow lighting dusk provides.
Our model Sonia had no prior experience modeling, this was her first time on a professional photo-shoot.  Utilizing my knowledge of lighting application and posing, and with Sonia being such a quick understudy, I was able to capture great shots of an absolutely gorgeous model.  Sonia hit her poses as directed like a seasoned model and it was an absolute pleasure working with her.
