KARA: Lebanon High School [Southern Illinois Senior Photographer]
Kara was our last Supermodel for 2014 and we really went out with a bang! Like tiny pieces of a mosaic, each outfit exhibits facet of her personality and the final product was nothing short of perfect. We started the day downtown St. Louis with her stunning prom dress and made our way around to nearby locations. Of course we couldn’t be downtown with one of our Supermodels and not stop into Pi Pizza for lunch! Full bellied and ready to get back to it, we made our way to her Grandfather’s farm where, as promised, we found the ideal spot for her “laid back country girl” outfits complete with four wheelers and tractors. We even managed to get the dog in for one on the four wheeler. (after she got a ride of course) The creek proved to be tricky at first but Amy was able to spider monkey her way into a spot to give the perfect light. We headed back to the studio and hung up her softball uniforms. We had some fun and did sporty, competitive images and also captured one of the most thoughtful images we’ve had this year. Kara pulled out one more shirt from her bag and asked if we could incorporate it to show support for her softball coach. A day made to be all about Kara, she wanted to give a piece of it to him and repay him for all of the support he had given her. After multiple outfits hair and makeup changes, his was what really showed us who Kara was and exactly why we do what we do.
