Shake It Off Shoot

I love the words to this song. Everyone deals with trying to want to be someone else. Their life seems to look better, they post beautiful photos on Instagram, they always seem to be having fun and aren’t stressed. They probably don’t study for the AP class and still get an A, they have the latest clothes and get to eat out all the time…and take awesome photos of it. You feel like you’re not living up to “them.”

We see people and how they fit into categories that others have pinholed them. And then there are “haters” who see you going after what you believe in and they want to tear you down.

The term “shake it off” can mean different things to you, and I don’t know Taylor Swift’s true meaning. I think it speaks to shake off all the junk people want to use to keep you down. I did this shoot because I think it’s so important for you as teenagers to remember this as you encounter obstacles when you are full steam ahead after your passions. And that it’s okay to take time to have fun, in fact, it is vital to keeping your motivation.

Don’t let them get you down…don’t wallow in what negative things others say…don’t forget to sing loudly to a song because you can and you should! Truly be YOU, shake off all those haters and keep going with focus and drive!

Roller Girls

This was an absolute blast to photograph! Some of these girls sported their roller girl outfits in their senior parade at Heritage Christian and after seeing them I knew we had to do a photo shoot. There’s something about girls dressing up that gives them confidence and a killer attitude that totally showed through at the session. Girls, you rock.

1920s Shoot

2014 SGH Models, Kendra and Tianna were part of a 1920s stylized shoot. It was all about taking the 1920s idea and simplifying it so the focus was on the beautiful girls. The backgrounds are handmade and their amazing hair and makeup was done by Loni Wilson and Erica Foit.

Wearing Their Prom Dresses Again

Prom dresses can be just like wedding dresses…you wear them once and then they end up in the closet forever. After talking to several of the 2014 SGH Models, we decided to get together and do a fun prom shoot. A bunch of them showed up, did their hair and makeup and we headed out to try and beat the storm that was headed our way. We weren’t super successful at missing the rain so we found an abandoned gas station that was covered while it poured. The girls didn’t care at all that it was raining and made it all look fabulous!

I just adore all of these girls! So looking forward to getting to know them better!
