Fashion Shoot at the Beach

Wanting to do a test run of a photography session with a newborn, I sent out a model call! Ally Prater (IG: was willing and eager to meet me (and Skyler) so that I could see how a shoot could be accomplished with a newborn.

We met at Seahurst Park – me with Skyler in the baby carrier, and her in her sexy floral top and black faux-leather pants. With the beach scene around us, we did a quick fashion shoot which turned out spectacularly. Skyler slept the whole time! Even when crouching down in the sand to get the low angles, he didn’t even stir.

Ally, who has been modeling for many years, was a total pro. She expertly changed poses, emotions, and positions to give variety. She’s got a great, bubbly personality which made the session pass by quickly. When editing the photos, I decided to take a stylistic approach. I wanted the color and tone to give a moody summer appearance!
