I affectionately called them my “Stylish Seven”! I’ve been working with most of these ladies for at least a couple of years and I’ve been amazed at how they’ve grown and developed into amazing young ladies both in front of the camera and in their schools and communities.
I’m all about partnering with local boutiques to highlight their styles and give my models and the studio local exposure.
This occasion was no exception. Danielle Lazaro of Shop Stevie and Dani boutique is a friend from way back. We met for the first time at a photo shoot, have spent many a shoot together, her as my makeup artist and even my model in some shoots. We’re besties forever and of course I jumped at the opportunity to highlight her newest venture of her online boutique.
There’s nothing more powerful in your home market than highlighting a boutique’s styles with local models, particularly active young ladies with deep social media connections.
We quickly developed a plan and shoot schedule to highlight some of Danielle’s current styles and of course my Stylish Six models were more than up to the challenge.
DJP Studio was up and firing on all cylinders for this shoot and we came together and made magic! These girls are beyond amazing and I’ve seen their comfort in front of the camera and in their own skin improve dramatically through the years.
Check out the results. All of these looks are available at Danielle’s online boutique. Click HERE to shop and enjoy.
Happy Independence Day everyone! As we all celebrate this time of our nation’s independence and all of our freedoms that we so richly enjoy, let’s take time to also thank our service professionals and brave soldiers who keep us safe every single day.
As an annual ritual, I have a fun and creative Americana portrait session with some of my models and Catherine Harrison and Makaila Efird did not fail to impress and help me create amazing images celebrating this holiday.
We met at the beautiful lakes in Catherine’s neighborhood and had a great time flying the red, white and blue.
I’m so excited to introduce my 2016 DJP “Me” Models!
So What In The World Is A “Me” Model?
I’m starting a brand new rep program specifically for teens and “before” teens in the age range of 10-16. My models are the face of my marketing and represent my studio throughout the year. We do some amazing creative photos shoots to create image that I will use in all areas of my business.
My Me Models are a part of an exclusive program and eligible to participate in special shoots and events that are not available elsewhere.
Their first model shoot is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 where they’ll be showcasing some of the latest teen fashions for the spring and summer. I can’t wait to share the images from that shoot in my upcoming Spring/Summer Lookbook.
So now introducing the 2016 DJP Me Models:
Let me begin by saying that I had the greatest time doing this sibling portrait session in Pineville, NC. This was the first time I’ve worked with the Phan children and I loved every minute of it at Johnston Park and downtown Pineville. Cynthia is the older sibling a Freshman at Nations Ford High School. Very energetic, style savvy and FUN!! Young Celina is a 3rd grader and while she started out a little shy and reserved, by the end of our session she was asking, “When can we do this again?”
This fun shoot began in Johnston Park, which on this beautiful Sunday afternoon was quite crowded! I’m used to shoot around the moving scenery and we were able to find some spots around the park to hide and get some beautiful images. The girls were full of energy the entire time and they posed so well together. We left the park and ended up in the very small downtown area of Pineville where the girls changed into dresses and we continued to get amazing images of them.
Check out the rest of the images below and remember this is the PERFECT time to get your kids together for a Fall/Holiday session.
You, my existing clients can save $150 on a session fee if you book between now and the end of November. That’s right, a portrait session is only $50 through the end of November
Let’s get together soon and create some lovely images like the ones below.
So check out the beautiful and FUN Phan sisters!
