Little Girl Fashion Photography – Dorothy

Dorothy

We photographed Dorothy for years as a dancer at her mom and dad’s dance school, Connecticut Concert Ballet. Dorothy is a beautiful dancer, a sweet, tiny little thing and is absolutely obsessed with makeup art! She did her own hair and makeup for the first half of the photo shoot (all the way through the hippie/fairy images.) Dorothy was accepted to an out-of-state dance program for the Summer –  a big step for a little girl. So we started off at the train station in Windsor, CT, creating an editorial on her journey away from her parents to pursue ballet.

After a short break at a yummy roadside grill, we headed into West Hartford for hair and makeup by Elise O’Mara at Top Level Salon. Dorothy knew so much about makeup that she held her own in a conversation with Elise! It was absolutely adorable. For this final look, we were going for a surreal lengthening of her already-tall-and-super-lean figure. We found a great adult-sized dress at a thrift shop that hugged her body perfectly, helping make the appearance of a dress that was made just for her. Propping her up on a stool completed the look we were going for.

Dorothy knocked this photo shoot out of the park! She followed direction perfectly and, mixed with her own personality, made this set of  little girl fashion photography our new fav!

Model Portfolio at Harkness Park

Rebecca heard about us from one of the models we shot this year and when she reached out to us, we were all excited to work together. Hair and makeup was done by the always excellent Top Level Salon, with shots done around West Hartford Center and at Harkness Park. As you can see, she was amazing, being able to pull off a range of looks from cute girl next door, to Parisian street fashion, to elegantly sexy. Check out the result.

Fashion Senior Portraits – Taina

Vintage Fashion Senior Portraits

By Johnathon Denney

Fashion Senior Portraits

Taina has such an adorable and unique look that we thoroughly loved working with her at our favorite location, Hotel Duncan, for her fashion senior portraits. Taina was the perfect model. She was up for anything we asked! With such a variety of nooks and locations in and around the hotel, we were able to capture everything from vintage to high fashion. Taina was adorable, fun and edgy. We can’t wait to work with her on an editorial shoot!

Behind the Scenes

Funky Family Portraits and Fun With Sibling Rivalry

Funky Family Portraits with a Twist

We know these girls… and we know they have a love/hate relationship. When they asked for funky family portraits, we decided to have a little fun with it. The image above was amazingly captured in one shot thanks to Sarah’s amazing jump and Rachel’s perfect timing! We can’t wait to work with them again in the Autumn for beach family portraits with Dad this time. [wink]

On the day of the scheduled shoot, it rained and rained… and rained. No problem! We knew just where to go for some cover with style – downtown Hartford! We started inside the building at Top Level Salon where Sarah had professional hair and makeup done by the fabulous Elise O’Mara! Then we headed downtown to the Riverfront, battled the chill and rain and came up with these amazing images!

Modeling Portfolio Starter – Sara

Sara Needed A Modeling Portfolio Starter…

Which is funny because Sara is already a model. And an actress. So why would she need a modeling portfolio starter? Because her wonderful agent (her mom) is ready to pass off the duties of agent. So we set Sara up at Hotel Duncan (in our favorite room, 505) in New Haven, CT for a diverse photo shoot. We had Elise O’Mara of Top Level Salon on hand to create three different looks for Sara. Beginning with natural beauty, we worked through a glam, smokey eye look and on to an avant garde tough chick look. Looks included everything from evening gowns to boudoir! Stopping only for a pizza break, we worked straight through most of the day, easily moving from one look to the next. The results are fabulous!

 Urban Ballerina At Her Best

We first met Becky years ago when we were photographing a ballet by Connecticut Concert Ballet. She stole our hearts. Her beauty, strength and control makes her a star on the stage. So when the opportunity came up for us to photograph her off stage, we jumped on it! Working with this sweet, urban ballerina made our day. So humble. So amazing.
