I couldn't be more excited to introduce this amazing group of young people: my senior team for the Class of 2019. I also couldn't have been more excited to execute this theme, which I had been dreaming up for awhile now. I loved the idea of soaring, flying, and looking towards the future, while celebrating the past. That's where the vintage aviator theme came in. Each student and their parent or guardian was sent a mood board, to help prepare them for the session. The mood boards helped show them what I had in mind, but it also gave them creative space to infuse their own personality and ideas into what they were wearing, as well.
These seniors totally pulled together some incredible looks, and when I saw them together, I knew this shoot would be a total success (and a ton of fun!). With neutral, retro tones of army green, khaki, and even a bomber jacket, they punctuated the wardrobe choices with pops of red. The look was super influenced by a retro time period, and it looked just like I'd envisioned (or better!). We are so grateful for the amazing people at the Flying Circus Air Show, without whom we could not have had such an authentic location with prop planes and this hangar. I'm also so thankful for our senior team parents, who were great sources of support, and who lent lots of fresh eyes and inspiration to every shot. Last but not least, our fearless makeup and hair artist, Yisell Santos :: Hair & Makeup Artist who gave my models perfectly coiffed retro hairstyles and the perfect red lips. Here are the amazing seniors below:
Kyleigh - Patriot High School

This is part of our Retro Summer Series, which we will continue in July with our Summer Teen Experience group, so stay tuned!
