Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Heather Allred Photography located in Baltimore, MD. Here is what Heather had to say about her session!
Please describe this session to us:
“This session was shot in my studio. I shoot the vast majority of the time outside but the winter had me itching so hard to shoot! I was ecstatic to get Ashka in my studio- we are scheduled to shoot again, outside, once spring breaks- so stay tuned!”
Tell us about the gear used:
“I used Savage paper in Stormy Grey as a backdrop. I used a two light setup with my Paul C. Buff lights, one with a beauty dish. I shot with my Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 50mm 1.2 lens.”
What inspired this session?
“I have known Ashka since she played rec basketball for me and my husband with our own daughter. Now, they’re seniors and I jumped at the chance to shoot her. Ashka is not only a super basketball player and a super-kind person- she is also of Indian descent and was perfect for a project I have been chipping at for a while. I absolutely LOVE the beauty of traditional cultural dress for girls and women. I have been wanting to shoot someone in a sari for a while. Side note: Ashka’s mother made her dress, she makes all of their saris and she does a beautiful job!”
