Grab a coca cola, sit back, and let me whisk you away to South 21 in the 1950’s!!
Creating styled shoots are one of my most favorite things to do as a senior portrait photographer. I have an endless amount of ideas that swirl around in my mind. I have pages and pages of handwritten notes in a photography journal detailing these ideas. This year we were able to pull off this vintage styled shoot because of the most amazing team of people I am surrounded by. Once I had the concept I contacted my photographer friend, Sara (Whitebox Photo), to see if she wanted to do a combined model shoot. She runs a model program in Greensboro NC and she is a joy to work with! We used 5 of my senior models and 5 of Sara’s. We were blessed by the talents of 3 hair and makeup artists including Layne Barter, Glammed & Groomed, and Carla White. Our team of model mom’s worked hard and were able to secure these fabulous dresses you see my model wearing! Then the icing on the cake were the vintage cars. Mr. Thigpen and his father provided us with a 57 Chevy Belair and a 55 Chevy Belair. Dreams do come true.
