Jess is an incredible young woman who just lights up a room. She is an actress (among a myriad of other talents) and has got her sights on pursuing a career on the stage. I love that she is so passionate about the arts and so I really wanted to do something special for her session to show that part of her personality. I approached the Banff Centre and they were kind enough to invite us to shoot inside one of their theatres (so much fun!!)
The talented Michaela Howie, from Simply Me, came along and created the perfect glamorous look.
After our time at the theatre was up, we headed back to my studio in Canmore, where Michaela whipped up the most amazing braid crown so that we could do some studio portraits, capturing Jess's classic, dreamy beauty.
And, since Jess is a true Banff girl, we had to head outside into the most biting, cold wind EVER, to show off that amazing red dress against a majestic mountain backdrop :)
Check out a little behind-the-scenes vid from Jess's Grad Dress Session - yay!
Alexis McKeown Portrait - a Grad Dress Session
Jess is a bright, beautiful theatre student, graduating from highschool this year. She came in for a super fun makeover & portrait session with her very glamorous grad gown and we created a little slideshow with some behind the scenes peeks at the process.
