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!

Now Booking 2020 Senior Sessions!

My daughter Veronika at eight years old.

My daughter Veronika at eight years old.

The first thing I learned about Veronika is that she loves to dance. I met my future daughter nine years ago when I invited her mom to a barbecue in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Veronica, who was eight, wore a bright green and white dress, spoke no English, and spent the afternoon dancing and making chalk drawings on the patio. Her bright blue eyes twinkled when she smiled, and her exuberance was contagious.

Now, nine years later, I’m taking her senior portraits. So for us, 2020 is a big year, and to celebrate, Steve Daubs Studios is launching all new sessions, wall art, and albums for Madison area Class of 2020 future graduates. For the most adventurous seniors, we are building a senior model team that gives your children the opportunity to get free sessions, earn cash, and represent our brand in their high school. Details and the online application are available on our website now. If you’re interested, sign up soon, as we’re closing the program at the end of March!

We provide a complete photographic experience when we photograph your senior. We get to know what you love about your child, what they love about themselves, and capture all that in stunning portraits that will grace your walls for decades.

We know that in another year, Veronika will be off to college. We don’t see her a lot these days between school, poms practice, friends, and dates, but we’ll definitely miss her even more when she’s out on her own. So we have a wall in the living room prepped for a collection of her photographs showcasing that mischievous smile and twinkling eyes. For us, that’s priceless.

What would it mean to you to have a daily reminder of the impressive young man or woman you have raised? What would it mean to have an album capturing your child’s unique spirit sitting on your nightstand for those times you’re missing them? Our senior sessions capture exactly what is unique about your child and what you love about them the most.

Call us today to set up a consultation, or send us a message via our website. We’d love to show you how we can help you celebrate this landmark in your child’s life.
