I don’t often do portrait sessions without my team these days but sometimes it is just so easy to have a session with no one else around me. After all, it was how I used to work.
This 18 year old young lady just came back from Brazil after winning a bronze medal at the ICF canoe slalom Junior and Under 23 World Championships. And she will soon be off to Europe and the USA for other international level competitions and training.
Unlike in America where Senior Portrait (for those who graduate high school) is popular, I don’t really get to take portrait of girls like her here in Australia.
It is quite apt that she got to do this session with me as she will be able to use these images to replace her profile photos (after all, she is an elite athlete!), to approach potential sponsors and employers.
I also managed to dress her in a more grown-up attire, namely, a lattice pattern top from a local designer Gail Thompson whose work I recently found and fell in love with. I also put her in a peach dress from our massive shooting wardrobe (which is growing day by day).
Love making gorgeous images of young girls (ahem, adults, thank you very much, she would respond)… more images to be seen in my portfolio.
