I will eventually get around to posting Riley’s full senior session, but for now I wanted to show a little peak at a project we did together. I heard Riley say on Instagram that she was remaking a sound that she had previously written into another recording. She was excited about it because she has written, sung and produced the song all on her own. That’s a pretty amazing feat considering she hasn’t even graduated high school yet.
Images for Riley’s Song
Once I heard about her song, without actually hearing the song first, I contacted her to see if she needed help with some images to accompany the song. I asked her to tell me the vibe and create a Pinterest board with the visual aesthetics.
Inspired By The Pink Sky
She told me she was outside looking at the pink sky and that inspired her makeup choice. Pink makeup all round her eyes was inspired by that sky. Riley pulled out some punk clothes, with killer shoes and the look was complete.
She just had one request for the location: she wanted a brick road. I knew the perfect spot! Even though it was frigid outside, we found a day last week and photographed just a few images. This is what we came up with.
As I am writing this, I still haven’t heard the song, but I am so excited to hear the sound that she describes as lo-fi pop. The song is called High School Drama Queens. When I hear it, I will make sure that I post it here to share it with all of you.
The images were a lot of fun to create and I always look forward to creating images just for fun. Of course, the more creative the more I enjoy it.
If you have a fun project coming up, give me a holler and let me know so we can create something great for you and your project.
