Sammy

I was scrolling through this shoot the other day and fell in love all over again with these summer vibes. I love sharing photos on social media but so many shots go unseen- so here’s my full shoot with Sammy! Scroll through for some tips and tricks and to see some before and after edits.

One of my best tips for getting photos where the model looks like she belongs in her environment is to use props! We went to Kwik Trip for these shots, so we stopped inside and grabbed a cherry icee for Sammy to hold. By giving her something to interact with and do with her hands, she looks natural in every shot.

Bonus of shooting at the gas station was that a guy drove up in this sweet car that totally matched our vibe!

Creating movement is the best in photos- I have my models/clients do a lot of running their hand through their hair, walking back and forth, and just swinging their arms to create natural movement.
