This senior wanted to be Marilyn for a day for her senior portraits (we did "normal" stuff too). I'm just really proud how some of these turned out and wanted to share!












You can see the rest here. and also here.

sweetlips6: ACTUALLY, I've really been considering promoting portraits to the "older" ladies as they seem to be overlooked a lot. I did a shoot with a woman who is 50-ish because she really was feeling bad about herself, and kind of down. By the time I saw her to drop off her pictures, you could PHYSICALLY tell a difference in how she walked and talked. She was thinking of starting a new business, she was dressing differently.

I'm sure it wasn't just me, but it felt really great having a hand in such a change in someone's life.
