Jenn the Model, Pt. 2

Photo by Ava Dae Photography

Melissa Charry of Ava Dae Photography sent me the teaser image above from the 800 photos that she took on the photo shoot day. I made a pretty decent model, and her edits are amazing!

She also posted a private gallery for me to go through on her website of those 800 photos.  I get to pick four for her to edit and touch up and to send to me as either high resolution photos or as prints.  I have quite a task ahead of me!  It’s fun to go through all those photos, which I will get via a USB drive in a few days.

What do you guys think?!

I LOVE it!

Photo Shoot Fun!

It snowed here on Saturday, the day of my photo shoot with Ava Dae Photography.  I think we got a couple of inches here.  Yuck!  Still, the roads were only wet, really, so I packed up my costume and hoops and headed out to Bucks County for my photo shot with Melissa Charry of Ava Dae Photography.  Simply put, I had a great day.

After I hopped off the PA Turnpike and drove though the winding, yet busy, roads of eastern Pennsylvania, I came to this beautiful old farm house, complete with ponds and chickens.  This is was were the studio the photographer rented was.  It was a gorgeous location.

I got there, and was greeted by Melissa.  We chatted, and she told me what to expect from the shoot, and such, as she set up her equipment.  A few minutes later, Claire Marie, the hair and makeup artist who did the outstanding work above, came and gave me my look for the day’s shoot.

After I put my costume on after hair and makeup, I got on the backdrop and started to hoop while Melissa took photos.  I had two single hoops that make for great photos, my LED hoop for some fun shots, as well as a shiny set of doubles that Jenny gave me.  Overall, I think Melissa said she took over 800 photos!

My overall sum of the experience.  It was wonderful.  I had a great time!  I got to work with two fantastic and professional women who had a lot of experience with this type of photography.  I am so glad I won this photo shoot!

I would like to do another shoot with them in the future, actually.  I have some vintage stuff that would make for some fun photos.  Being a model like this is addicting!

It’s going to take Melissa some time get the photos ready for viewing, and I won’t be posting any until both she and I approve the final ones.  No worries, though, you will be seeing the best of the bunch!

I recommend working with Ava Dae Photography.  I know it’s a drive for many of us here in Lancaster County, but it’s well worth it!

I won a free photo shoot from a really cool photographer, Ava Dae Photography at a breast cancer fundraiser event back in February!  The photographer specialized in pin up, hot rod, and themed glamour portraits.  I’m going to be using my free shoot, complete with hair and makeup, to have some photos taken with hoops.

How cool is that?!

The photo above is the closest thing I have to pin up or hot rod photo, but you get the idea.  And don’t worry, you will get to see some of the photos here.

Since I have am a photographer myself, and have worked with models before, it’s going to be great to be on the other side of the lens!
