Eldeen Annette Portraiture
Hi! I am Eldeen from Eldeen Annette Portraiture and I have a passion for story and legacy. After trying all sorts of genres in photography (wedding, engagement, newborn, family...), I was able to settle on what I love most (and honestly, what I felt best at!): portraits of individuals. I love being able to be with someone, get to know them, see them, and help them tell their story through photography. I photograph high school seniors, tweens, and professionals exclusively. ....well, and the occasional pet (hey, they're individuals too!).
This photo shoot was from a recent high school senior portrait session with the absolutely stunning Eva. I wanted to capture the different parts of Eva's personality, from the inner rock star model, to the joy that she brings to every room, to the natural grace and peaceful elegance that she carries. Eva is confident and compassionate, and about as sweet as you can get. Variety in lighting, backdrop, location, and mood were definitely key to telling Eva's story.
Every photo shoot start with professional hair and make-up, followed by a few sets in the studio.
We created a bold, bright look with studio lights, a white backdrop, and lots of well-placed reflectors.
Just after that, we moved to a natural light look in the studio for a soft, muted look that draws you right in.
We have colorful flowered bushes around the studio, so we did a quick set with bold color - she had the PERFECT outfit for our landscaping.
Then we headed out to an open field to show off her softer side. We have access to a beautiful old barn in a wide-open field with mountain views. This was her favorite set from our day.
One of my goals in every shoot is to create a set of images that are timeless, captivating, and perfectly represent my client. Thank you for taking a moment to meet me and see what makes my heart sing.
