I was contacted to shoot Senior Portraits of Shannon while she visits the island of Aruba with her family for the first time. In an effort to spread my wings and transform this family into Aruba lovers and have them visit our island year after year, I’ve decided to take on this challenge to shoot Shannon’s Senior Portraits in Aruba eventhough I’m Aruba’s Premier Wedding Photographer. The results I personally believe were exceptional as Shannon is a natural model. She never modeled before but after the shoot I did tell her that she should take up modeling as it’s a natural talent that she has, all she needs to do is develop it and who knows we will see her on the international catwalk within a few years.
The shoot was done for the most part with off camera lighting ala Strobist and I did not have my regular assistant but I must say that Mark, Shannon’s dad did a great job assisting me as my lighting guy. He was my voice activated lightstand and lighting operator. Mark, once again, thank you and you’ve done a great job. We shot at various locations of Aruba. Eagle Beach, Arashi Beach and Downtown Oranjestad in Aruba were a few of the locations that were used for this Senior Portrait Photoshoot.
Look at that smile and her crystal blue eyes, a natural model indeed.

Here you have Shannon strutting her stuff. Showing that she’s ready for the great world of modeling.
Here is a different look of Shannon. This is her with some attitude. She did not liked this one when she saw it in the the camera’s screen. She finds that she looks upset but that is just a different look and I say it’s more attitude than upset.
Loved the hat as a prop in this shoot, it really brought some flavor to the shoot.
Look at that smile and look at the eyes. She was surely enjoying herself in downtown Oranjestad as a model.
Why are you staring, are you not going to join me?
Just lounging downtown Oranjestad.
Aruba’s Sunset + a great model = Awesomeness
Some of you might remember this location that I used in this shoot for a trash the dress session with Shayenne.
