Brooklyn Bridge Park Head Shots

From looking at the amount of outdoor photo sessions I’ve had, you could say I’m in denial that it’s late December. Granted, these photos were taken this past November, when you could be caught outside in a non-sleeping bag type jacket.

Miss Jordan Rose needed some updated head shots as she finishes her final year at Circle in the Square Theater and I was lucky enough to be in town 🙂 Our last session was shot in my home studio and the great outdoors of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This time, we opted to change up the backdrop just a bit and headed over to the Brooklyn Bridge park in DUMBO.

Oh, and we totally lucked out with the current installation of Tom Fruin’s Stained Glass House sculpture. An stunning yet subtle backdrop for Jordan’s bright blue top.

For a cooler, more monotone look, we ventured over to the park’s famous carousel. The inner child in me is still dying to go for a ride or two. Good thing it was closed for the day…. the grey granite steps above provided just enough texture for the casual look we were going for.

And if you recall from our earlier shoot this past January 2014, red is a fantastic color on Jordan (actually I can’ think of any color looking bad on her…).

Jordan is so photogenic and comfortable in front of the lens, she makes my job look easy 🙂 Now for some fall colors, we combined a bright purple top with a warm wooden door on our way out of the park.

I am always looking for fresh faces and talent to photograph. Don’t let the winter blues deter you from stepping outside to show those pearly whites! If it’s too cold, we can always find a neat cafe/ library/ shop in Brooklyn or the city 🙂

Happy Photo-ing!

Photo Session: Jordan Rose

Sunday afternoon in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A balmy 30 degrees Fahrenheit keeps things indoors for the most part today during Jordan’s photo shoot. Head shots with a bit of a color pop to them are key if you want to make it big in this city. Note our favorite zing of red… Eye-catching, no?

For fun, we tried the Pin-Up look on for size. It fit.

We eventually ventured outside to enjoy the beautiful weather (note, sarcasm – I really hate the cold!) and found some greenery! Astro-turf braided chain-link fence makes for an excellent backdrop. I’m thinking girl next door?

Astro-turf, meet Jordan.

And to close out our session for the day, we found a lovely red door. I can’t get enough of this color. Seriously.

Red. Red. Red. Pairs excellently with Jordan.

Well my dears, till next time. If you venture to the Williamsburg area or find yourself within a 2-mile radius of this village, let’s take some snaps!
