This year we did something new with the Senior Model team. Four of the 2016 Senior Models participated in a fashion couture event very unlike a regular senior photo session. This photo shoot was separate from their Senior Portrait Session and the intent was not to create a yearbook photo! This session was a fun, out of the box, fashion editorial shoot to create images that highlight the talent of our model team, make up artist, hair stylist and fashion design intern. Our theme for this shoot was STRONG|CONFIDENT|BEAUTIFUL and everything from apparel to make up to hair to location was planned to communicate these qualities in our amazing high school senior models.
We began planning this photo shoot last winter. The goal was to stretch our creative abilities and create a unique image for each model that captured their personal strength, confidence and beauty. It all came together beautifully thanks to the incredible talents of our creative team and the maturity and eagerness of our the models that chose to participate. Here are the details of our Fashion Couture Shoot:

Of course, we had to share these lovely images so we held a Gallery Event on October 28 at FASTFRAME's new location in the Front Range Village Shopping Center. The images looked amazing printed on Fine Art paper! Besides, munching on cookies donated by Mary's Mountain Cookies and sipping sparkling beverages, those who attended donated to the family of Blake Miller to help cover the costs of her medical treatment. Blake was diagnosed with stage 3, high risk neuroblastoma at the age of 17 months. We are thrilled to tell you that we raised over $500 to help Blake's family with expenses. Blake has successfully recovered from surgery and her prognosis is good!! If you would like to help the Miller family with continued expenses as they work with Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York to monitor Blake's health, you can do that by clicking here.
Now, I am guessing that you would like to see these images! Here they are:
