Dramatic Portraits for the Model of the Month

Seattle photographer Lara Grauer is having a great time with the Model of the Month program! The possibilities are endless – who do you want to be?

April’s Model of the Month was a beautiful young lady who has plans to pursue an acting career. She is ambitious, independent, and responsible – she will surely find a way to realize her dreams!

For this photo session, we started with a dramatic and elevated concept, incorporating flowers and a corset. I wanted to create images that feel regal and subdued. I also wanted to create a portrait that could be printed on canvas and feel like a classic painting.

What do you think? Did we succeed? I say yes! I love these images, and can’t wait to display one framed in my studio!

We also took some time to work on a more modern approach through fresh, crisp lighting and some wardrobe adjustments. Here are some of my favorite shots.
