Madison and I partnered to help her build her modeling portfolio with some different looks. We shot our Winter Wonderland session on a cold winter day (26 degrees outside which felt like 10 degrees in the wind) in a super fun setting at Creekside in Gahanna, OH. I choose Creekside because it provides diverse background opportunities such as the wooded hiking area, urban street setting, bridges, waterfall, restaurants, AND it also had many locations for us to quickly step inside and warm up our bodies.
We started on the walk bridge because it gave us a fun picturesque location and the walk from the street to the bridge allowed us to talk and for me to discover more about Madison and her modeling journey. The wind picked at times during our session but we positioned her so that it turned into our own modeling wind machine! Make lemonade (or in this case lemon ice) from lemons right? From the walk bridge we then shot some in the fountain courtyard, on the hiking paths (on both sides of the river) and finished up inside a restaurant with some through the window shots.
Madison started her modeling journey in January 2021 which is tough during the COVID pandemic. I believe our outdoor winter photo session provided her with some outstanding diverse looking shots to help her enhance her modeling portfolio. What do her images tell you about her Winter Wonderland session?
