Here are a few of my favorite shots from yesterday’s photo shoot. I loved working with this senior !

In addition to the outdoor portraits & headshots, I thought it would be fun to add something a little different than the standard senior photos. My husband was gracious enough to help me in my quest for a more unique senior portrait. Cue the smoke…

Ok, so the smoke was somewhat of a disaster. But live & learn ! 3 smoke canisters later, I was able to better control the direction of the smoke & ended up with a portrait I love.

Unfortunately, the smoke set that I had purchased was not worth the investment. I ordered 7 colors from Amazon, thinking I would be able to use these smoke bombs for at least a few photo shoots, and out of the 7, one was broken, two didn’t activate & one barely let out so much as a tiny puff. As much as I love the effect, I will have to hunt down a different smoke bomb supplier for future shoots. When I find a brand I love, I will be sure to post here so that you can avoid making the same mistake I did.
