My First Photo Shoot, I did it!

I am a friend of DeDe, the owner of Dream Design Events, and I became a one-day model to introduce her flower backdrop work. I am not a professional model (I am a student at the University of Arkansas) and frankly, I was nervous about the results. I was surprised when I saw the photos later and knew that they turned out great! Wow factor!

Before the day of the photo shoot, I also experienced a number of interesting things, for example, DeDe took me to several planning meetings with venders and our photographer, Pramod, to discuss about the theme and setting.  Pramod lent me a wedding gown catalog "MORILEE“ and a week later he gave me a lecture on how to pose during the photo shoot.  It was very helpful and interesting to me.  

DeDe took me to several salons and for make-up training to make me look good for the concept of the modeling day. We went shopping together to buy beautiful modeling accessaries such as a tiara, necklaces and shoes. It was really fun, too. 

On the day of the photo shoot, I found that posing was not easy or not natural for me, but I overcame this problem thanks to Pramod's direction. The beautiful paper flowers DeDe made for the backdrop also made me feel great.
