Yesterday Crystal came to our new studio for an editorial style photo shoot for her new blog, “Haynes Her Way”. As a young reporter in Connecticut WTNH and the New Haven Register are interested in her thoughts and opinions on everything from nightlife to current events. So the problem we were hired to solve was, how to create a website for Crystal’s fans and followers to go to get this information, follow her social media and at the same time be visually interesting and easy to navigate. After a brainstorming session Lindsay and I came up with a rough outline for the website and some great ideas for her photos. Crystal braved the snow storm yesterday to make the trip up to the studio, but even with the bad weather she came with a great attitude. You could say the her life as a reporter helped her with this photo shoot but most models would agree it is completely different to be the subject of an editorial fashion/portrait shoot. Once Crystal settled in she opened right up and was a natural, her eyes tell a story in every shot and her smile could light up a room.
There are so many great shots to choose from and some of which may never be seen but here are just a few that I like.
