Stephanie and her family have been family friends of ours for years. Kevin and her dad are very close and attend the same church. Stephanie and I have worked together on children's worship for about 5 years as well. This spring, Stephanie was gifted a mini portrait session with us from a friend and she chose to use it to add to her senior portraits. Initially, she had her portraits taken by her boyfriend Jedidiah Carter; however, once receiving the mini session, she decided to round out her portraits by taking some dramatic shots that incorporated our off camera flash lighting techniques.
We started at her school Franklin Road Christian's gym to capture her passion and enthusiasm for cheerleading. Sadly, due to an injury, she could not finish the season this year; however, it is still a major aspect of her life and who she is.
We also wanted to highlight Stephanie's talent for fashion design by showcasing her prom dress. After many years of working on smaller clothing projects, Stephanie decided to create her own dress. The dress turned out beautiful and her artistic skills can be seen in every stitch. In the fall, Stephanie will be attending Wayne State University, working on a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Fashion Design.
