She leaves the room much darker than she is used to working in. The shadows lend themselves to the rock n roll mood she is setting, making the curves and the angles of Paige’s body stand out more. They pick a Van Halen album to start the session off on the right foot. The music fills the room and the dancing and lip synching along puts them both into fits of giggles.
Shelby at Shelby Champagne Photography created this unique rock n roll boudoir with her friend Paige, who is all about old school rock:
She's definitely one of the most confident people I know. I never laugh more during a session than when I work with this beauty and it makes me so grateful that she's willing to do anything. She's not one to really share intimate details unless you really know her, but she's just got that raw personality. One that sticks with you and you instantly think ‘yeah, we're going to be friends.’ She's real.
Noticing the details of someone can be so contagious once you first see it. It is fascinating to me, only because you see parts of people's faces that you wouldn't notice walking through the farmers market or passing a stranger at the gas station. You really SEE them. I feel like that's when you see the true talent of a photographer.
There is nothing better than when you get a groove going between the photographer and the model, which is evidenced in the spontaneous nature captured in this session. Paige is confident in who she is and isn’t swayed by trends. She shared herself with the world just as she is. We love that this real story takes us right into Paige’s life and captures the essence of who she is in just a few frames.
