03-05-10 Ready for Prom

I was skeptical when this subject told me she wanted to pose for one of her senior pictures in a prom dress she had bought on eBay. But when she came out of the dressing room, I could see that this had potential. We took several poses but we liked this one best. Sitting and looking very relaxed and natural, she is surround by the ample pink folds of the gown.

I am always a little nervous when my subjects say they have a prop, though props (like this hot pink prom dress) often add something important. In addition, it helps reflect that subject’s personality.
