Playing It Kool With Kyliel On His Senior Session!

Playing it kool with Kyliel is just what we did when he came to the studio for his senior pictures.  He is a unique kid in a good way – soft spoken, plenty of style and a great look.  He came in with his grandmother who is just a sweetheart and she told us his story – this young man has overcome plenty of obstacles and for his family they look at him as a real life Superman!  Indeed, Superman’s given name by his parents on Krypton was Kal-El – pretty close right?  With Kyliel we planned an all-studio session which is nice.  We’ve explained this before, but it bears repeating that while the majority of our senior sessions combine indoor and on-location photos, the sessions which are all one or the other are a nice change of pace because we get to thoroughly explore one or the other.

So let’s get to our kool session with Kyliel!

Red hair, red background – exploding off the screen…

So first we pulled out our new red background which we have pretty much been obsessed with since we got it.  Kyliel has great hair – just a great red tint that looks so cool and we love this shot:

Kool – right?  Love it.  Next we went for the formal GQ look which Kyliel rocked quite well…

Let’s pause for a second to go behind the scenes of the shot above with a vine of the action…

I love what Ally did with this next shot…  it speaks for itself.

So now you understand what I mean when I say we were playing it kool with Superman Kyliel!  We loved his session and we hope you enjoyed the highlights!

We Are Zo Crazy About Our Spokesmodel Zoe!

Zo… yes we are crazy about our spokesmodel Zoe!  We did not know Zoe before this Spring but she came highly recommended from a few different people and we connected with her and her mom Elyse right away!  We had quite a lot of fun on her spokesmodel session and Ally and Zoe were doing the wobble in the studio by the end of it.  Yes, the wobble (you may have seen it on our Snapchat story and we actually uploaded it to the Facebook page).  That was a first!

To Birmingham…

So let’s get to the session – we met on location in Birmingham where we were joined by a swan, a random somewhat creepy guy and some bright light that was a little challenging on Zoe’s eyes.  Through it all Zoe rocked her session and we love the results, not to mention an amazing black and blowy shot, but we’ll get to blowy Zoe later.  First let’s start on location:

The light was mostly diffused under a cloudy sky on this day which is great to work with.  Sometimes if you’re facing a certain way the glare can still be tough on the eyes but that wasn’t a problem until we tried to get a shot by the waterfall towards the end of the location part of the session.  For these first few spots we were okay and Zoe didn’t have any problem – as I said before she was killin’ it!  Love this next one….

One more location shot with this close crop on the bridge…

Now let’s take a look at our behind the scenes vine of our day:

Back to the studio…

In the vine you can see Zoe during the black and blowy set up, and we will leave you with one of those:

Fantastic!  So, YES we are crazy about this girl!  We are very excited that she’s on our team and we hope you enjoyed these highlights of her spokesmodel session!
