Another summer day, another summer shooting at the studio with bright colors outifs.

Coumba who is originally from Senagal has brought some Senegal flavor with her outfits: the colors were present, the style and of course the design.

The studio photo shoot took place at the studio photo in Clichy from 12:30 to 13:30. We had such a great time.


Coumba brought five different styles for five different styles with heels and handbags. She didn’t change her hairstyle during the photoshoot.

The photoshoot took place on a bright and sunny day. We had to use the fan because the studio was really hot. For this photo session, I use two softboxes lights and flashes I also use the remote flash and was playing with the light. I mainly use the white background for this photoshoot session in order to focus on the poses and styles of the model.

We had six different shooting styles. Coumba, first, started with a Senegalese stylished pink gown with heels and her bob hairstyle. She posed gracefully in this outfit.


Then Coumba went for a fashionista look with a black jumpsuit with a v decolleté and matching heels. She had sunglasses and black handbag as accessories for this shoot.


After this fashionnova style, the model wore a midi dress silver dress with black heels. She looked like she was aboout to hit the red carper of amfAR. Great pick.


On set 4, model had this striped light blue dress you wear on a Sunday family dinner or when you want to be classy and not looking too much. She completed the style with a handbag and black heels for the shoot.


Back to Africa, with a Dashiki print dress with black heels and accessories to play with during the shoot. Coumba graced this African creation during the shoot.

We finished the shoot with what’s so called the model outfit: a blue destroyed denim pant with light blue striped blouse.


I like to finish the shooting with some casual outfits so the model gets more at her ease, reveals more about her personnality during the shoot, during the pose. A personnality can be revealed in different ways: body language, the eye contact… It’s a great way to connect to the model especially models you want to do projects with.
