Senior Model Program
Teenagers have more pressure than ever to be perfect or Instagram ready. Positive body image starts at a young age, some research suggests as little as age 5 both girls and boys can have body image issues. 🙁 Society, media, ads and even other women, convince women they are not enough. Thats why I have created the Senior Model Program. This program is designed to give all young ladies a chance to see how beautiful they truly are. In the year long program, during their senior year of high school, there are optional sessions and events to attend.
By far, one of my favorite sessions is the Bathing suit session. This session is not for everyone. And what I mean by that is, it’s not easy to be photographed in your bathing suit. It takes a huge amount of strength and confidence to look at images of yourself in a bathing suit and only see beauty. The bathing suits session gives these young women and chance to experience a discomfort, that shouldn’t be discomforting. The session is designed to teach these young girls that they are beautiful both on the inside and out. So whether they are in a parka or a bikini, it doesn’t really matter because true beauty is confidence.
Noelle’s Bathing Suit Session
Noelle’s bathing suit session was the first session I photographed that day. We both arrived early because we worried about parking and how busy the beach would be. Good thing we both arrived early because Wrightsville Beach was insane. We didn’t let the packed beach get in our way. We started on the beach access path. There were these cute benches that over looked the ocean so we started there to allow the crowded beach to thin out. Next we headed to the dunes and took several different portraits among the beach grass. Noelle brought a cover up and the cutest little sun hat. We were able to get a variety of images with these two easy accessories. And lastly we we headed down towards the pier. We had to wait a few minutes because several other photographers were there waiting to use the space under the pier. When it was our turn, Noelle suggested sitting in the water and I LOVE the image where the wave comes up and hits her. <3
