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:
