Wow, did I ever have fun a few weekends ago hosting a Portrait Party at my studio! It has taken me a while to do a blog post because I couldn’t decide which pictures to post – I have so many favorites! What is a portrait party you may ask? Only the most super-fun party idea ever: 2-3 hours with your friends rummaging around in the prop room, dressing up in your favorite outfits with accessories from the studio, and getting awesome portraits of you and your friends. Here are some of my favorites from the session:
Nothing says fashion model like a big floor fan and sheer scarves!
Such lovely young ladies.
We laughed so much during the party my gut was sore afterwords!
We get lots of fun and silly shots, but also make sure to get some nice ones too.
We made saris out of fabric from the prop room for a very unique image.
I was trying to have an equal number of images of each girl in this post, but I really love this shot and just had to include it!
I can’t wait to do another portrait party! They work for many age groups including bachelorette and teens and can be customized to a theme of your choice. I am so glad I had the chance to spend an afternoon with these awesome ladies 🙂
