This time were working with a good friend of ours, amazing model, and Real estate agent Alexis Poarch. This is our 7th shoot with Alexis I believe, and every shoot with her has been awesome. Alexis always brings it every shoot this was gonna be no different.
For this first series of shots we focused on Alexis. Nothing in the photos are distracting the viewer from Alexis there's no jewelry or props or clothing (that you can see) very minimalist approach to a portrait and the results are beautiful.
For this second set of images we decided to add some props Alayza had a pink bow and I added a magenta color gel as well. It's always fun to shoot with gels its something I don't do often but it's something I might do more of in the future. Gels are tricky to shoot with but if you get it right it's really effective. I'm still getting used to gels but I really like how these came out. Alexis was able to pull off that giant bow with no problem!
The last set of images were a full blown gel shoot. I think hardest thing was just finding the right complimentary colors to use. I really like the classic cinematic teal and orange, The background color was just what I had on the flash from the 2nd set of images and I decided to use it for a background color I think it looks pretty good, but I like the second image better I just took the magenta gel off the background. I think I'm just a minimalist at heart and that background was a little to distracting even though I still think its a very cool image!
This was another great shoot with Alexis she's an amazing model you can find more of her work on her instagram page, and if you need to sell or buy a house she's the person to go see!
