The Senior Squad for Class of 2019 had their Spring Styled Shoot last month. And Oh.My.Gosh. did we have fun! Styled Shoots are one of the BIG perks for joining the Anna Graf Photography Senior Squad. We do one big shoot in the Spring while the girls are still Juniors in High School. It’s a great way for the girls to get to know each other. Most go to different high schools in the SW Portland area. The girls got to choose between a few different themes for the styled shoot and I was so excited this is what they chose! I’ve been wanting to do this for YEARS! Literally! YEARS!
My vision for this came from Pinterest… of course. It’s where I find so many ideas. I wanted this to be more than just the messy throwing powder at each other, I wanted these to have some beauty type shots. We started with the powder separated into colors and I asked the girls to simply paint their faces. I just love how the images turned out!
Then the messy fun started! Since none of us had worked with this before we weren’t too sure how this would work. Turns out the powder really picks up in the air!
The girls avoided throwing it at each others faces but they still got quite the coating. These two shots just kill me. I want to print these HUGE just to see the detail of the powder. I asked the girls to have a straight face and they delivered big time!
For one of the shoots I had an assistant that squeezed some up into the air. Makes it look like we had smoke bombs but really it’s just the powder! Such a fun thing to work with!
At the end there were nothing but smiles, the girls loved getting messy and were posting to their instagram like crazy. I’m so glad they chose this theme! I’m thinking there might be a family or two that would do something crazy like this. Probably older kids, like pre-teens or teens that will totally huff and roll their eyes at the mear suggestion of family pictures but tell them they’ll be thowing color powder at their siblings and parents…they might actually crack a real smile for the camera! Just an idea! Let me know if you think your family would be down for something different like this!
