Having the opportunity to photograph someone like Lydia is an absolute joy, as a photographer. She is not your average teen. Sure, she is fun and quirky and silly at times, and when left alone will undoubtedly be glued to her cell phone. However, Lydia has been involved in the pageant circuit for several years and in fact, just came off her reigning year as the Pure International Young Miss Queen. She has traveled, spoken to many different types of groups, adults and kids and experienced so many things that most of her peers have not. Because of this she is poised, confident, composed and pretty good at modeling!
For this day, our mission was not about Lydia as the pageant queen, but rather to provide her with a portfolio of images that reflected her at this time in her life, as just a beautiful, fun, stylish teenage girl (with a bit of “Teen Magazine” flair). Upon completion of Lydia’s makeup/styling, we headed out and were blessed with sunshine and mild temperatures, as we made our way to Depot Town in Ypsilanti. We shot in various locations along Michigan Avenue and near the train depot. We had a fabulous time together and the resulting images are stunning, thanks to Lydia’s ability to just be herself and let her personality come through.
Thank you Lydia for the opportunity to work together again! You are a lovely, genuine and wonderful girl and you are welcome in my studio any time!!!!!!
