Here are a few shots from my portrait session with Eloise (Elo).
Elo is participating in the 2011 Miss Las Cruces Pageant, and needed some simple head shots for the event. She might look familiar to some of you Aggie fans; Elo was a Sundancer for a number of years, dancing until the 2009 season.
Because it was a head shot session, I kept the setup pretty simple, but I still needed some help from her friend Olivia to get that “wind blown” look on Elo’s gorgeous hair. For that I had Olivia sit on the floor with a blow dryer trying to keep the flow of air focused on her hair (her aim was off and Elo got a blast of air in her eyes a couple of times!) Olivia was also very helpful with her advice and critique of the shots afterwards.
Overall, a very fun session that produced alot of great shots. Good luck, Elo!
