A fellow photographer did a session with 16 1/2-yr-old Alyssa a few weeks ago -- I was drawn to her looks in some of his work but was dismayed that he shot several pics in an overly sensualized manner. So I invited Alyssa and her mom to try a different approach and suggested that we shoot in more sophisticated wardrobe. My objective is to encourage her to develop herself in the FE&C area and make the most of herself. She's an A-student, very communicative with adults, warm, punctual and responsible...and if you name any desirable attribute, she seems to already be that. She has near-perfect complexion and pops out of the camera requiring virtually no editing. Her one and only drawback, in my opinion, is that she's only 5'4" and I doubt there will be any significant growth spurt to take her to a runway body frame.

Alyssa is extraordinarily fun to work with and here are some of the images we got from her first session with me:

2 and 6 look sensual to me; I'm curious to see what the other guy did if this is comparatively 'sophisticated.'

Nice shots, like the mirror one the best I think.

Isn't 5/4" enough for modeling petite clothing lines?

I agree about 2 and 6. I would add 7.

My favorites are 4 and 5.

The photography here is generally good, although the skin softening is far too strong. I try to be cautious with setting reasonable expectations with all models under 5'8" about opportunities as fashion models. Years ago I choose to only work with models under 18 if they are already signed to a talent agency.
