So excited to share the first of my 2016 Senior Model Sessions! I had so much fun getting to know Heidi and exploring this little plant nursery with her. I’m hoping we get to do a few more shoots throughout the year, because she was so much fun to work with! Here’s what Heidi had to say about the experience:

“I absolutely loved working with Allegra for my senior photos. Allegra made me feel completely confident behind the camera. She was so encouraging the entire time and chose such a cool location based off of my requests! You should seriously consider choosing Allegra for your senior pictures. I was amazed with the result of my photos and couldn’t stop looking at my photos when she sent them to me! Her work is so fantastic. GO TO ALLEGRA! You won’t regret it.”

Prom is just around the corner and it’s time to start start thinking about a dress (and maybe a date)! So far I love the trends for Prom this year. Here are a few of my favs:

Two-piece gowns. Ever since Sarah Hyland rocked this Christian Siriano gown, I’ve been obsessed with two-piece dresses. There are so many fun ways to work this look:

Totally classic:

Fun & flirty:prom 3

Boho beauty (just add a flower crown or bangles!):prom 2

Embellished tops: Beading or glitter all-over can be a bit overpowering, but having an embellished top can add just enough “wow” to stand out in a sea of dresses. Here are a few ideas:

Soft & Sweet:

prom4Just enough sparkle:
Prom5Dark & bold: (Let’s hope you can get this one past Sister Linda!)
prom6Floral. It is spring after all! A little floral can go a long way, and these dresses are sure to make a statement! No need to add too many accessories since the fun patterns will speak for themselves.

Full-on Floral:prom8prom-Shoulder details. It doesn’t take much to turn a simple dress into something really special. A pretty shoulder detail can do just that!
