Marissa’s “Modeling” Session (Oklahoma City Photographer)

You may remember from my last post about Marissa that she is launching a bit of a modeling career this year! To help her prepare for her first portfolio shoot in Dallas, we met recently for a consultation and mini-session at my home.

Before we started shooting the test shots shown in this post, Marissa, Monica (her mom) and I sat down at my dining room table to look at some images from magazines and posing guides. We talked about what the models were doing with their eyes, mouths, arms, and feet – and why; I showed her examples of eye-pleasing “triangle” body shapes.

Most of all, we had fun! Marissa has a beautiful smile and such a sweet personality. I love the emotion in these shots. You can see both the whimsical little girl and the emerging young woman in her expressions and carriage.

Marissa, you are beautiful inside and out! I know you will be successful in whatever you pursue, especially because, as I’ve seen over the past year, you have a family that loves you deeply and unconditionally. A lucky girl! 🙂

Hope you had fun in Dallas,

I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan.

I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
