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!
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!
Special thanks to Alexis Whaples, of Illusions Salon, for Cassie's beautiful make-up. Cassie's look transitioned from clean and bright to urban edgey -- you can catch a peek of that part of our shoot next week!
Psst: Alexis is also our make-up artist for my Couture Sessions, for high school senior pictures. Class of 2013 -- you won't want to miss working with Alexis! Book your senior session by contacting me today!
