A Barbie Themed Photo Shoot

Styled shoots are one of the most popular aspects of the Planet Photo Tribe, this pink theme was so much fun! After brainstorming ideas for the shoot the idea of the bright pink Barbie logo took hold. I found the most amazing Barbie pink dress at Goodwill and the theme was set.

Barbie was first manufactured in 1959 and it is estimated that over a billion Barbie dolls have been sold world wide. A billion little girls have taken Barbie with them, changing their outfits and imagining all the things they could be and the places they could travel. 

The Economist has emphasized the importance of Barbie to children’s imagination:

“From her early days as a teenage fashion model, Barbie has appeared as an astronaut, surgeon, Olympic athlete, downhill skier, aerobics instructor, TV news reporter, vet, rock star, doctor, army officer, air force pilot, summit diplomat, rap musician, presidential candidate (party undefined), baseball player, scuba diver, lifeguard, fire-fighter, engineer, dentist, and many more….When Barbie first burst into the toy shops, just as the 1960s were breaking, the doll market consisted mostly of babies, designed for girls to cradle, rock and feed. By creating a doll with adult features, Mattel enabled girls to become anything they want”

Senior Portraits: Go Big or Go Home

When it comes to
senior portrait sessions,
go big or go home.

What do I mean by that?

This is an incredibly transformative period of your life.  So much is about to change.  You begin this year as a child, and end it as an adult.  Commemorating this transition requires big, bold gestures.  That is why this year holds the biggest events of your life thus far – college or trade school admission, maybe your first job application, prom, graduation, and countless other benchmarks honoring this transition. 

It is appropriate, therefore, to carve out time to capture this moment, this turning point in your life.  Selfies are not up to the task.  Amateur photographers can capture a few nice photos of you.  But in order to do a senior photo session justice, it isn’t enough to take nice pictures of you.  This is about more than just capturing your physical appearance at this moment in time.  This is about capturing who you are right now. 

It isn’t enough to take photos of you; we strive to take photos about you. 

Photos that tell the story of what makes you unique, what dreams you are about to chase down, what heights you are striving to reach.

How do we do it?

  It starts with an in person consultation.  At this consultation, we want to delve into what makes you special.  Once we have a sense of who you are, we design a custom photo session just for you.  The resulting photographs will be something you will be proud to show.  They will give you a confidence boost.  They will help you get noticed.  And years from now, they will be priceless family heirlooms your descendants will treasure.

In a world where heavily filtered selfies are omnipresent, your photographs will have a timelessness and a quality that sets them apart. 

Schedule your consultation now, before the back to school chaos sets in.  It’s easy!
