Senior Pictures LA
Dominique is one of our 2013 MxB High School Senior Reps. She shot with us a few weeks ago at our Los Angeles Senior Portraits location. Usually, the seniors that apply to be MxB reps are extremely outgoing, because they know that they’ll be ambassadors for our photography studio. Well, even in her application, Dominique admitted that she was shy…but that she thought maybe this might be a good thing, something to help her push the boundaries of her comfort zone with social stuff. So, when she arrived for her shoot, we were prepared to really have to work at directing & getting great smiles & poses. ….wow….we were wrong! Within a matter of a few minutes Dominique was modeling as if she were a total pro!! Being tall & super athletically built, she honestly photographed very much like a professional model. To say we were blown away would not be an exaggeration…. So many of the cute poses & all the playing around that we captured on camera came organically from Dominique. On the train tracks, our main direction was to say “just imagine you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere, and you know to follow the tracks to the next city….but, along the way, while you’re walking, give little glances & smiles to the camera”. That was it! She took off her shoes & started taking little steps over the pebbles & rocks on the tracks…and when she’s slightly trip on one, she’s laugh & look right at the lens. To be able to take your actual circumstances & use them to inform your expressions & body language is the very essence of modeling….and obviously, Dominique has it.
Senior Portraits Thousand Oaks
So many of our HS Seniors from Thousand Oaks ask about the urban locations they see in our LA Senior Pictures – and the same is true for our LA & South Bay Seniors….they often ask about the beautiful mountain shots we get at our Newbury Park location. Both are such awesome locations for shooting HS Senior Pics that it’s tough to choose which location to book. Our suggestion is to shoot both!! We offer discounted rates for Seniors who decide to do 2 shoots – and the fun part is, you get double the amount of images at this totally amazing time in your life 🙂
