Models, models everywhere!! The most exciting part of working in the photography business is all the people we get to meet. Over the past week I have had the pleasure of photographing multiple models, and it was so much fun! We worked on different lighting styles and poses for multiple different models. We had the pleasure of enjoying the company of some aesthetician and hairstyling students as some of our models and we also enjoyed some family and friends of the students in the Digital Photography program all as our models.
Time to talk about the progression of a shoot! When you first bring a client into the studio, or meet up with them on location, the first thing you want to do is make them feel comfortable. The model should feel relaxed in your presence. At Growing Wings we pride ourselves on taking the first five to ten minutes talking to our clients to make them feel comfortable and relaxed. When we begin shooting I tend to keep the conversation flowing and provide minimal posing help, however, some models require a little more assistance with posing. When this happens I make sure that the client stays relaxed while I mirror what to do. This provides a visual for the model to follow.

Tyler modeled for the Digital Photography Class and was such a sport, doing whatever the students required from him.
After meeting up with my December bride and groom,Rachel and Jordan, I am finally able to show some pictures that I took at our consult! We went to the Willistead manor in Windsor, ON. It’s absolutely a beautiful venue!! I am super excited to be able to shoot at this location in December! Here’s an image from the meeting.
Willistead Manor is a historic house located in the former town of Walkerville, Ontario, now part of Windsor, Ontario. Willistead Manor was designed by renowned architect Albert Kahn in the 16th-century Tudor-Jacobean style of an English manor house. It was built in 1904-1906, and was commissioned by Edward Chandler Walker, the second son of Hiram Walker. One of the unique features of the mansion is that it contained only one bedroom. In the years after its use as a residence, Willistead served as the Walkerville Town Hall, Art Gallery of Windsor and as a public library branch. In the early 1980s the City of Windsor wanted to demolish the structure. Preservationists stepped in and the home was saved. The house is decorated for the Christmas holiday by The Friends of Willistead and opened to the public.
Rachel and Jordan are such a fun couple and I am more than thrilled and excited to be able to capture their December wedding at such an amazing venue.
