It's finally here! Erie's first Snow-mageddon! Over a foot of snow feel between Thursday and Saturday, and we were right in the middle of it! It just so happens, I had my very first model shoot on Thursday, right as the heavy snow started to fall. Our new senior model Sidnye Unger won our first themed model shoot for Seniors Ignite- a group of the top senior photographers in the country who challenge each other to up their game through challenges and national features.
As we watched the snow fall, we knew we were going to be in for an epic shoot! I've shot in full-on blizzards before, and having real snow in the image (as opposed to photoshopped textures) will help Sidnye's images stand out in a crowd of models from California, Texas, and New York City.
Do you recognize this dress? I've used it a few times before, in Bella's 1940's-themed custom Fresh shoot and Hallie's celebrity shoot. I absolutely love it because it looks fantastic on everyone and is a great neutral look to build on. Of course it fit Sidnye like a glove, and after some awesome dramatic hair and makeup from Megan, we were off to play for a shoot all about angles.
We weren't kidding our models when we said they'd be tossed into real-life modeling shoots! Professional models have to deal with rain, snow, cold, and and everything else while wearing heels and looking great! Sidnye did a FANTASTIC job of being stunningly gorgeous and working all of those great angles without letting on for a minute that she was freezing- which we all were!
This shoot was the exact definition of "go big or go home!". Snow, traffic, freezing temperatures, wind, we dealt with them all and had a great time! I can't wait to see all of the great looks my entire model team brings to the table over the next ten months. We'll keep you updated on all of their shoots and adventures throughout the year!
