Everything has been pretty busy over the last few weeks with home and work so I have not gotten to shoot as much as I would like. I will be posting some new art images soon... But first...
I had the opportunity to shoot with the beautiful Caitlyn Van Auken this last weekend. She holds the title of Mrs. American Dream Florida. Mrs. Caitlyn Van AukenMrs. Florida American Dream 2015 Caitlyn will be competing for the national title this August when she goes to Jacksonville for the National Mrs. American Dream pageant.
She wanted new headshots to put in the pageant program so I helped her out. Caitlyn has a degree in marketing but is currently pursuing a bachelors degree in nursing through UCF.
I have never done beauty pageant images before, but it was a great opportunity to play with some lighting and practice skills that I learned in my workshop with Anthony Neste.
I used a white background, but I didn't want it so white that it totally blew out, I wanted to see just a few hints of the curtain material without lots of messy wrinkles. I think they came out pretty well.
I wish Caitlyn the best of luck in the upcoming competition. Mrs. Caitlyn Van AukenMrs Florida American Dream 2015
