Editorial Mentor Sessions

Something that has quickly become our new favorite thing is our SamErica Style Mentor Sessions. Each of these sessions is dedicated to teaching our mentee something new or creative about the photography process. That could be posing, client interactions, shooting in harsh light (our fav), editing for brands, designing PDFs or whatever! But it's been so amazing creating these shoots. It's been a fantastic creative outlet for us to just get funky and have fun. This particular session was focused on solo portraits and editorial work being shot in the midday sun.  

We also got really weird and played with plates and mirrors and a seamless backdrop (which, in retrospect, wasn't the best idea to bring that outside, lol). But, roll with the punches. The ripped backdrop made for a fun shoot. Work with what you've got!
