An Illinois Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Captured by Katie Photography, located in Collinsville, IL.

Describe this session for our readers:
“Three of my Senior girls decided to participate in my Metallic Gypsies themed shoot. The girls were instructed to choose a neutral colored dress, and bring gold jewelry they had that paired well with a bohemian theme. I purchased gold jewelry and flash tattoos for the girls to wear. I gave free reign to the hair and makeup artists to do whatever they liked with the girl’s hair styles and makeup. The location was a park setting, and they day was bright and sunny, which was absolutely perfect for the theme.”

What inspired this session?
“Metallic Gypsies came to life when I knew I wanted to do a theme shoot that had a bohemian feel to it. I was walking down the aisles of a craft store and saw some metallic temporary flash tattoos. That sparked the idea to have a Coachella vibe to my bohemian shoot. I brought the idea up to my hair and makeup artists, and they were ecstatic to be on board. I created a Pinterest board to give a general idea to the seniors and the hair and makeup artists on how I wanted the shoot to feel/look. It all came together perfectly in the end!”
