Hailey W: Outdoor Theatrical Headshot Session

So you may have seen the beautiful Hailey around town. In fact, I'm almost positive that you have! A few blog entries ago in February we held an in-studio headshot session.  Other than at a recent graduation celebration for a friend of hers, the last time I saw her was performing with her high school marching band in the 57th Ogdensburg International Seaway Festival. (I'll share that wonderful image last because I don't want to take away from the Hailey that is just Hailey.) 

Hailey right now (as I type this) is in New York City taking in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." If you don't find her in her hometown performing at St. John's Conservatory, chances are she is in the Big Apple taking in some Broadway action.  Totes envious here!! And young Hailey aspires to be one of those greats. She's got the looks and the pipes to do it!

This time we held our session outside.  I like the environment better than in-studio as it provides so many more freedoms to be creative and authentic. More vibrant colors, awesome textures, and heck, let's be honest here, an unlimited number of cost-free backdrops! Some of our best shots happened on a whim.  We held this session at my absolute favorite spot about town. Can you see why it's my favorite? 

This shot of Hailey happened just as she was about to step down. Her mom asked if we could incorporate the alarm into the shot and give the impression that it's sounding. I love it when parents have great ideas that turn into great images!

This blue is so vibrant that it just actually seems to want to blend in with Hailey's shirt!

For the next two, we decided to go a bit dramatic.  It is always good to have variety.

Um. What? This look says SO MUCH! It captures everything that a teenage girl embodies.  Passive yet defiant. Disinterested or curious. Nonchalant yet expressive. Casual yet classy. The American Teenager. Without thought or pensive? This image speaks.

And so, we look forward to the next time when we see Hailey.  The last two clients that strolled through the door were nothing short of amazing.  I love what I do!

As promised ......
