Melissa - Model Shoot

Okay, how fabulous is Melissa? We headed out to my new favorite location which either requires a fairly out of the way walk (as the crow flies, its about 50 yards from my front door) or a quick fence jump. Even though she was in a dress, she was down to hop the fence! Don't worry...completely legal. It's just the fence separating my housing development from the bike trail. As soon as I started shooting, I knew we had something special. Melissa is drop dead gorgeous, tall, and really, anything she did looked beautiful. I'm hesitant to do super close up headshots of people, but the headshot that we got of Melissa is by far one of my favorite images. Her eyes knock your socks off! I played around with the style a bit, channeling my inner "Vouge".

Oh, and anyone else notice the dress? Scroll down a few posts to Shelby's senior portraits. Look familar? What a koinkidink! img_1566img_1575img_1568img_1611img_1614img_1644img_1667
