Photography session information, sharing and event photos and tips!
Nothing can be harder to watch than an emerging model struggling to strut her stuff down a cat walk. It's not unlike waiting for something terrible to happen - a car crash in slow motion. The whole time you are secretly wishing that she makes it off the runway without incident, hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. I really root for this girl. I want her to succeed. But, like all things in life - we don't always get what we wish for. Let me tell you from experience, a tumble on the runway is hard to recover from.
With the advent of the internet there really isn't a good excuse anymore for a bad runway walk.
When I first signed with an agency I thought modeling was so easy. I showed up to a job, was pampered and the photographer made me look amazing. But when I was booked for my first Congress runway show I was in for a rude awakening. I spent hours perfecting my walk with a sadistic coach who refused to allow me to be runway road kill. And I was grateful for his diligence. After hours of practice, I was able to slip out of my Doc Martins (this was the 90's) and sashay with the best instead of teetering in 6" heels on the fast track to a broken ankle. If you're just starting out, I highly recommend practicing in varying height heels so that you can be ready for whatever a designer or stylist throws at you.
Remember, posture, posture, posture and confidence is key!

I worked with Elle Halls of Nouvelle Design Studio for my business profile picture (used for LinkedIn, email, website, business cards, etc.) and she was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted, and made me a part of the process, stopping many times throughout the shoot to show me how the photos were looking. What I thought was going to be a "business errand/chore" ended up being a lot of fun! I highly recommend using Elle for your photography project.
Excellent experience. Elle was able to coach out the "model" in me and provided many shots I can pick from. She went well above and beyond me expectations and the final product is excellent.
Working with Elle was wonderful! I was doing a fashion shoot and it was so fun! She's very nice, funny, and professional, the shoot went like that! She has a very keen eye and did wonderful work! Very happy with my photos. Thanks, Elle!
I love the photos of myself and my daughter. We were given excellent direction so we could get the best shots. I couldn't be happier with the results! I highly recommend booking a session for any type of photography you are looking for!
