Princess project part 3

So here is part 3 of a personal project I’m doing – I just call it the Princess Project.  It’s a creative session using a model, location and theme to call to mind certain childhood princesses.  So far, I have done three different shoots. I have a few more in the works.   It’s just nice to have a session where I get to control everything – from the theme, to the location to the model – and just use some creative vision.  It’s always fun to see what these sessions bring me and this one did not disappoint.

After Autumn did hair and make up for my model, Lauren, we headed out to our first location, only to be met with a bit of rain.  Well, that’s what happens sometimes, so we just managed to work around it.  Thank goodness the location offered some cover to keep her dry and my assistant had an umbrella to hold over me.  Then we managed to get to our final location with just minutes before they closed -thank you, Park Cities Oriental Rugs!

I hope you enjoy this small sample of images of Princess Jasmine…..

make up/hair: Autumn Cooper      model: Lauren Liles



2013 Senior Ali from Ursuline Academy

Ail and her mom showed up at the studio with a beautiful wardrobe for her session.  Autumn of course, did her make up, and she is just such a classic beauty. We did a few shots in the studio in this gorgeous white dress – loved those.  Then off to one of my favorite parks with such a pretty background for such a pretty gal! Can anyone guess Ali’s favorite color??  Ali, I so loved your session! Best of luck at Texas A&M!

2013 Senior Mary from JJ Pearce High School

I had so much fun with beautiful, tall and fun Mary! She has the best laugh!

She brought her best friend to help out during our session since her mom couldn’t make it.   Mary opted for Autumn to do her make up in the studio and then we did a few shots there.  Then we headed over to the Museum district and finished up at the new Perot Museum. Such a fun place and you can shoot around the exterior, but just a warning, those security cameras work real well – we had someone questioning us within about 2 minutes (commercial photography isn’t allowed without a permit-we were fine).

I loved that Mary followed all my prep tips regarding clothing – she had such a colorful wardrobe.. She even texted me pictures of her outfits before the shoot and asked for suggestions – love it when girls do that, as it just makes everything go smooth.

Mary, I wish you the very best next year at Northeastern!  Those poor engineering boys are going to be a little distracted……

2013 senior Rachel JJ Pearce High School

Rachel was smart and scheduled her session in January for the spring and we had a perfect day!

She opted for Autumn to do her hair and make up at the studio. She and Autumn had even done a trial run on her make up to make sure it was the look she wanted.  She looked fabulous! Rachel has such beautiful eyes and Autumn did her magic to make them  just pop in all her images.  Rachel had a shoe (Choo) wardrobe – TO DIE FOR (check them out).  Honestly, it was so much fun showcasing her outfits with the locations and the shoes.  Her mom is such a sweetheart, as well and her dad even met up with us towards the end for a few shots with his super cool car.  I love it when clients want to personalize their session with their car or dog.  Her mom left me the most amazing phone message after she received her collection of digital images – so loved getting to know this family and capture the beauty and personality of this gal!

Senior 2013 Katie from Trinity Christian Academy

Gorgeous senior session on with Katie from last September! I had this location in mind for awhile, but I knew this would be the perfect place for her shoot – this amazing antique store in the Design District.
