It is no secret, I love the Vogue Portrait! I love the classic magazine style with edgy fashion and of course the look of film from the days of old. We just don't do it like that anymore. Or, do we? I have begun to implement this style into my regular sessions with glamour clients and models.
A few weeks ago, my friend and fellow photographer was "dying" to get in front of the camera and have some portraits done. I quickly jumped at the opportunity to get her into the studio to play. We decided early on I would do a #Vogue Portrait session; I had a wardrobe ready and waiting for her in the studio. I tend to do that for my glamour clients when I can. I told her to bring a pair of jeans and a white oxford shirt in addition to the outfits I had in my studio wardrobe closet.
I started the session with some fun in front of the camera. I turned up the music so she could get #UptownFunk going on. We had a great time forgetting I was behind the camera and letting her fall into her natural groove. Christie got the moves.
After her morning dance, she jumped into something a little less comfortable and a lot more elegant for the #OldHollywood Film Noir portion of her session. The images were inspired by #JoyceTenneson and #AnnieLiebovitz's portraits of Julianne Moore for Vogue magazine. Christie's graceful persona was perfect for what we were looking to capture.
For her last look, I thought it would be fun to spice things up with a #fierce and edgy #Girlswillbeboys inspiration. I had her put on an oversized retro velvet and wool trouser jumpsuit and some very elegant heels. Her poses were meant to display attitude#girlscanwearpants and still be feminine.
