Asha Benamon Prom Session

This time of year kicks off hundreds of photography sessions for high school students starting with PROM!  Guys will be sporting their best suit or a tux and the gals will be wearing killer dresses or other fashion outfits.  For Asha Benamon the dress she chose was perfect for her prom night and one that made her photo session a thing of beauty.  

Although I had approximately 45 minutes to create images of Asha before she dashed off with friends to her local prom location, by meeting with her and her parents the day before the session allowed us to worked together in perfect harmony.  In fact, the more I photographed Asha and as the session progressed I kept telling her mom and dad that she needs to get into modeling.  That's just how well Asha posed in front of the camera and the pictures below confirmed my opinion. could be a top model!  Oh, and you look like a princess in that dress.  Thanks for the awesome photo session we created together.  I'm looking forward to creating your senior portraits. I hope you had a blast at the prom.

Some of My Artist's Favorites #2

When you photograph people for a living eventually you will create an image during the session that becomes your favorite.  It's that moment when everything clicks between you and your subject and you've captured what you envisioned prior to the session.  I have taken thousands of images of people over the years and in this posting I felt like sharing a few of what I've classified as my "Artist's Favorites".  I hope that you like them too.
