I love senior portrait photography and especially in Richmond VA where there are so many beautiful backdrops to play with. Recently we set out to do a teen girls stylized shoot. The theme was Rural Couture and the backdrop was my residential studio and downtown Ashland, Virginia.
We love showing young women how beautiful they really are. We also want to empower young women to feel beautiful and confident as they reach a significant milestone in their life and go on to the next phase in their life.
Anetra, owner of NeeChic met with all the ladies at Lex’s of Carytown so they could pick the right style gown for their body type. Anetra also paired the accessories. Anetra took the extra step of getting everyone a fan to compliment their outfits and she picked up long black gloves for Montana’s dress. It all came together fabulously!
A very special thank you to Lisa McSherry, Owner of Lex’s of Carytown for generously lending us her amazing gowns and accessories.
On the big day, we met early to start the production of hair and makeup. Beauty by Brittany brought her talented assistant Kelsey Daubery. Makeup by Holly brought her exceptional assistant Tierra Parker. Anetra had her amazing assistant, Arlice Baker.
Here I want to showcase Montana Bowman a rising senior. I wanted to photograph her for more than a year. I met Montana at the Agriberry CSA booth at a local farmer’s market. I was immediately captivated by her and gave her my business card. She is full of beauty and grace. I love Montana’s gown, hairstyle and makeup. She is a natural in front of the camera. I hope Montana pursues in interest in modeling. It will neat to see her modeling career flourish!
Here is what Anetra of NeeChic said about Montana!
Montana was so regal and can wear just about anything. Everything that she tried on looked amazing. But, when she tried on this mermaid style gown, I knew it was the one. From the pink that set off those beautiful, blue doe eyes, to the cross neckline, with the keyhole at the top of her waist, it all screamed HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR GIRL! The earrings give it that extra pizzazz, but I knew the over-the elbow gloves would solidify the look!
