Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Sean Molin Photography, located in Zionsville, Indiana.
Sean shared a little about this session: “Well, it didn’t start off so hot. I lost my wallet. I couldn’t find parking. I was almost out of gas. I was pretty flustered.
But hey, the weather and the model were lovely. I knew Kelsey through her older sister, Cara, who was a previous senior of ours. We spent an hour in downtown Indy on Mass Ave, and created something beautiful. We decided to schedule the second part of the session for a future date due to time constraints. I bummed $5 off her dad for gas, and I was on my way.
The next day Kelsey got her wisdom teeth out. Ha. So it wasn’t until about three weeks later we were able to complete the shoot, but we did it in style at a family friend’s abandoned farm with one of her dad’s classic cars. The golden hour light was insane, and magic happened.”
Gear: “The entire session was shot with a Nikon D800. Two lenses were used; the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 and Nikkor 85mm f/1.4. I’m very well known for my off-camera use, but no need on this session. I didn’t feel it was necessary to compliment Kelsey, but also the lighting we were working with was so good both nights.The square image is a composite of three frames to exaggerate the shallow depth of field.”
I loved the locations used here. And the last shot with the car….ohhhh so good. And I love how she knots her sweaters! Thanks so much for sharing this awesome senior session with us!
