First Ever Collaborative Shoot | Tyler, Longview, Kilgore, Gilmer Senior Photography

This was quite an adventure!  What started with a cup of coffee with a friend from High School turned into models, hair, make-up, clothing boutiques, a vintage truck, vintage furniture, a horse and ONE TIRED AND HAPPY PHOTOGRAPHER.

And I can't wait to do it again!

Models began arriving at the studio around 2:00pm as did hair, make-up and stylists.  I have to confess - it was like your fantasy sleepover in middle school on steroids.  Pandora was playing, make-up was spraying, hair was curling and clothes were flying!

About 6:00pm we made our way to a beautiful, sun-soaked field and hastily threw together sets and props.  And then I shot.  And shot.  And shot.  Did I mention it was 95 degrees?  But oh man - we had a ball!

And there is absolutely no way I could have done it without Christen Turner of Trends-With-Benefits.

Again - a big thank you to all who put in so much of their time and resources:

 Photographer note: For these up-close portrait images I shot with the 135mm f/2L lens.  Isn't it so buttery and dreamy or what?
