Kristen Wroten | Central Arkansas Photographer


Well, let's start this blog post by giving a round of applause to Kristen - both for her incredible modeling and for her patience. This shoot was from the end of November, and because of the holidays and other projects, I am just now able to blog this session.

Earlier last year, I put out a model call and got dozens of wonderful submissions. One of my ideas for a shoot was to have a model wear all black with natural hair and makeup so that I'd really have to focus on the posing. While I love fashion and what it brings to the table, I know that it distracts me from what is really important - the photo itself. 

I had all of these crazy weird ideas planned, but in the moment I went with more natural posing. I love that there is a mix of smiles, model-stares, and straight up weirdness. This shoot was just fun. I did whatever popped into my brain and Kristen was up for anything. Kristen was the perfect model for this shoot.

So here's to you, Kristen. Thanks for helping me out of my creative rut!
