You may be wondering how pictures of a cute 1st grader ended up in Luke's Senior Picture story and you wouldn't be alone. Luke probably was wondering that himself, but Ella, his little sister, had ideas of her own.
Ella is a shy person so I was quite surprised when she told me that she wanted to be in a big picture in a building while we were doing Luke's senior session. We have displays at Oak Park Mall (all new as of Friday so you should check it out), in the windows by Twist, at Mady and Me, in our studio front windows and at For Women Only. I may be missing some. If I am, let me know or if you would like a display of our work in your business, let me know.
My upcoming project was to photograph the spring line of Spoiled Little Mama - bright colorful clothing and Ella can be quite serious so I said, "Here's the deal, Ella, you are going to need to smile in these pictures if you are going to model for this particular photo shoot. Can you do that for me?" She flashed this super grin.
Then, I thought, I would see how committed she was to the idea so I also asked her to look at her mom and laugh. She did that great as well.
As you can tell, she can do other looks, too. The hard part is going to be deciding which ones to make as big pictures and what building to put them in.
The "Oh my Goodness!" Look
The "Contemplating a Butterfly" Look
Doing her own version of "fashion air"
Twirling to show off the great lines of the skirt.
But we didn't leave her great serious looks behind.
I think this may still be my favorite Ella look.
