So this posting is way, way late. What can I say? We’ve been a little busy. That is an understatement. Better late than never. Regulars to this blog might have noticed that I like close ups. Real close ups. If as a photographer you are going to do close up portraits like this one. Rule one says you have a subject who is stunningly beautiful. Torissa, I think you’ll agree fits that description perfectly.

I tried to warn you another close up portrait. This time at least there was room for Sam in the shot. My excuse is that you rarely get great light like this while in the great outdoors. So, when it happens you just gotta go for it. All Torissa and Sam’s photos where taken in a beautiful garden prepared by Torissa’s mum and dad. Love the tropical feel to this garden. And of course the rich greens which go with that look. Anytime we’re working in a location, we try to have the location create the mood of the photos. Often, you don’t even have to show a lot of the location. Just being there is often enough to create a feeling in the final photos..

OK, so I can hear you chanting…We want the dress… We want  the dress. Well your wait is over. look down and you can see almost all of the dress… See we can do pictures other than close ups.!

Anyone can do stock standard debutante poses. Standing in the studio beside a bowl of flowers is real easy. Taking a beautiful dress outdoors and wearing it with attitude and character. That’s a whole different story. Luckily for us, Torissa knew exactly what we meant when we said “Let’s go girl, wear that dress”. As you can see Sam is doing a pretty good job of this photography modeling thing as well. However, we’re not going to mention that, because we wouldn’t want to embarrass him. Well, maybe just a little bit.
