It’s so easy – if you like it, Pin it.

Crush (Part 2 of 2, Laundromat Fun!) | Tucson Photographer, Oro Valley Photographer

Oh, boy...
No, really. OH BOY.  As in, OH, look at the BOY we had in our stylized, laundromat "Crush" shoot :) A couple of photographer friends and I got together to shake off the borings and do a little "just for us" shooting. Since I'm mainly a high school senior portrait photographer, and a family portrait photographer, here in Tucson, this was a bit of a departure for me. I mean, these obviously aren't senior pictures :) And honestly, I wouldn't bring my familes to the grungy laundromat for their family portraits. That is, unless of, they insisted on a unique portrait location. It is, after all, all about them!
Any how, iIf you recall from Crush, Part 1, we had a lot of fun with our laundromat location. It was a great surprise for us, with all of the pretty bright natural light.  And the pretty BOY was a treat for us, too!
Meet Mike.

Mike answered our model call, and was kind enough to let us subject him to our whim and whimsy. I'm not sure he knew just what he'd signed up for when he agreed to model for us, but he was a great sport, and up for pretty much anything we asked him to do.
Oh gosh, we did a lot of laughing - I mean, how often do you get to ask a hunky guy to take off his shirt in a public place??? AWKWARD.

But we had a great time putting together our little photo "soap" opera. (get it? "soap"...laundromat... hahah). Mike and Cassie did such great job working together, even though they just met at the shoot. Here's the rest of Crush, Part 2. I hope you enjoy this session as much as we did!

Until then...

Crush (Part 1 of 2) | Tucson Photographer, Oro Valley Photographer

Oh gosh - I am so excited to share this fun, stylized photo shoot with you all! I absolutely love being a high school senior photographer, and family photographer, here in Tucson. Honestly - there is nothing that makes me happier. Except maybe a big hug from my kids, or a grande skinny hazelnut latte from Starbucks (yes, I might have a SLIGHT addiction).

Anyway, sometimes, you just need to shake things up a bit, right?  Feeling a little bit restless with my photography, I talked to a couple of photographer friends  (Hi, Michelle! Hi, Jess!) and found they were wanting to do something a little different, too. 

We tossed around a lot of ideas and finally  came up with something that was different for all three of us – a laundromat. Yep. A laundromat. As on-location, natural light photographers, who typically photograph families, high school seniors, and newborns,  we were thinking this might challenge us a bit – indoor fluorescent light, crowded spaces, and little control over our environment. As it turned out, it was an amazing location for light! The white walls and floor were awesome natural reflectors, and we had two whole walls of floor to ceiling windows, where the afternoon sunlight just poured in and created a perfect softbox for us. And a little challenge for me, since I typically shoot a tad bit overexposed anyway. 

 Michelle (Michelle Perry Photography) and I put together a wardrobe (albeit a skimpy one!) and shopped for some props. I loved the retro soda pop we found and the adorable patterned straws! Orange Crush was my favorite as a kid, and a perfect prelude to our shoot theme (stay tuned for part 2!). 

Jessica (Chirpy D Photography) put out a model call and found our handsome guy, Mike, and Cassie – a photographer’s dream.  Cassie was so much fun – and totally up for anything we could come up with. The girl can rock a laundromat and urban alley (urban scene coming up in part 2, also) like nobody’s business!

Here's a peek at the first part of our stylized shoot here in Tucson. It's a little more "grown up" than my normal sessions, but well, Cassie is more grown up than my normal clients are, too :) She's not a high school senior...this gorgeous girl is a student at the University of Arizona, and if you're not a Wildcat fan already,well,  you will be now!

I know I said this is part 1 of 2, but really, it’s more like a little peek. Next week, we’ll share more of gorgeous Cassie, and a little bit of hunky Mike, too. I hope you'll join us! Oh, and a big thank you to Alexis Whaples, our amazing make-up artist! Cassie's look lasted through 3  hours of shooting and barely needed a touch up!
