Franklin Senior Portrait Photographer | Sarah Ngo

Back in January, I posted about a session I did in November, with Sarah Ngo. Well, this week, I had the pleasure of begin able to deliver her album to her, so I thought I'd celebrate by posting images from her session!

Here are a few of my favorite images from Sarah's session.

The above image was actually designed as a triptych series inside of Sarah's album, as displayed above. As we were shooting, I got an idea for a quick "action" series of images, and I'm a big fan of flowy skirts and dresses, so we gave it some movement and that was the result!

It was mostly overcast all day long, but RIGHT before the sunset, we got lucky and some light peaked out from behind the clouds. So we raced over to a new location to try and catch the last bit of light and color in the sky before the sun disappeared again.

I love Sarah's style! The pairing of her red sneakers with this dress gave these images just the right amount of *pop*.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Sarah is a volleyball player and coaches a younger team as well! She's super passionate about what she does!

It was such a pleasure to get to work with Sarah and her family!

Thank you again to Meko Davis for her wonderful work with Sarah's hair and makeup!

Franklin Senior Portrait Photographer | Sarah | Behind The Scenes

Hello there, friends! Two blog posts in one week?! I'm on a roll! ;)

So back in November I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah Ngo for her senior portraits!

Sarah is a cheerful young lady with a lot of ambition! She's a volleyball player, coaches a younger team, and is a theatre performer.  And she is a straight up TROOPER, let me tell you... because the day of our session was not exactly a warm one... but she did fabulously none the less!

The day of Sarah's session, I met her and her family at her home, along with my hair and makeup artist for the day, Meko Davis of Makeup By Meko. I had the opportunity to work with Meko a month or so prior to Sarah's session, on a makeup-centric test shoot with model, Lisa Van Atta, that I will be posting about later on. Because of that session and getting to experience Meko's fabulous work first hand, I knew she'd do a great job with Sarah, and I was not disappointed!

During our pre-shoot consultation, Sarah let me know that she wanted soft, luscious curls for her shoot, as well as a natural look for makeup. Meko was able to beautifully achieve what our goal was for Sarah's look, and I think everyone was pretty thrilled with the results!

While Sarah was getting her hair and makeup done, we chatted with her about school, volleyball, theatre, her Thanksgiving break, her plans for the coming holidays, and of course we spent some time narrowing down her adorable wardrobe selections. She had so much to choose from, and it was all so awesome, it was hard to pick out just a few outfits!

Once we had Sarah's outfits narrowed down, we hashed out a plan for how were were going to attack the multiple locations we had planned for her session. It was definitely an adventure bouncing from location to location, and I was a little concerned that it would wear Sarah out, but once again she proved to be a tough gal and she kept on pushing ahead full steam until we were finally finished.

At the end of Sarah's session, we found ourselves in downtown Franklin. It was freezing cold, but Sarah's step-mom, April, was very sweet and treated everyone to coffee from Starbucks, while we continued to work, so we could all keep warm!  All in all, Sarah's shoot was a successful one, despite the bitter temperatures, and it was certainly a blast working with her, her father Bao, and April!

I will be posting more finished images from Sarah's session, but for now, here is a sneak peak of one of the finished images from Sarah's session:
