The Parachute Dress: A Fun Option for Senior Photos

The Parachute Dress: A Fun Option for Senior Photos

One of the most exciting things about photographing seniors is the creativity that we can bring to their sessions. As professional senior photographers, our goal is not just to understand and amplify your senior’s unique personality, but to allow them to have a fun time and create photographs and wall art that go several steps beyond the ordinary.

This year we chose to implement parachute dress sessions, not just because they’re fun, but because, I’ll admit, I always wanted a parachute. Yes, I was one of those kids jumping off balconies holding onto my wubbie or trying to convince my mother to sew a giant parachute every time we went to the fabric store.

Now I’ve got one! My jumping days are long gone, but we recently purchased a white military surplus parachute (minus the cords….nobody’s jumping off the Capitol building!). I still had to lean on my mom to help us retrofit it as a dress, but she was happy to bust out the sewing machine to complete the project.

The inaugural session occurred over Easter weekend in front of Monona Terrace, and we can’t wait to bring in a few more seniors for this kind of session. If you’d like a session with this dress, just give us a call, and we’ll design a senior session that not only brings out your personality but also makes a statement like this!

Senior Model Zoe's Fashion Session

Senior Model Zoe's Fashion Session

Zoe, an upcoming senior at East Troy High School, is whip smart, sarcastic, and passionate. We had her into our Madison studio recently for her first session, a glamorous and fun fashion shoot, that showed off not only her stunning beauty but also some of her spark. She’s active in music and theater in her community and school, and also engaged in activism across a variety of important causes.

Using lighting and techniques from editorial fashion and incorporating some of her favorite looks, we put together a portfolio that brought out a wide range of emotions (no doubt in part to her theater training!), and even evoked a bit of drama to highlight her singing chops!

As a senior model, this is only the first of her sessions. We can’t wait to get her outside later this spring!

If you’re graduating in 2020 and are looking for something fun, different, and customized to your personality, give us a call! And if your son or daughter needs senior photographs, we can create art that will not only appeal to your senior, but also will help you as parents mark this coming of age. This experience will help you see your senior in even more amazing ways. A special shoutout also to Katrina Christine of The Posh Beauty Bar for the amazing hair and makeup design!

Give us a call today at 608-620-8304! Or use our contact form and we’ll call you!
