Senior Portrait Time

I had a chance to work with a Senior from East Duplin High School a few weeks ago. She wanted some graduation and senior portraits in a studio and outdoor setting. As you can see, we had several different looks in the studio and then finished with some outdoor scenery located near Warsaw, NC.

Eagle Scout and Senior Portraits

I've found an Eagle's nest located at the Stewart household. This is the second Eagle Scout I've photographed from their family. I also captured some fun senior portraits for Noah. We have been friends with the Stewart family for a long time. It is really amazing how fast time passes as you see children grow into adults. That is why it is great to be a can help freeze time for people and help them remember the way things were.

Handing Out The Bruises

To be an aggressive football player and a dancer takes talent! We got to see Emilee in action on the field this winter and she was handing out the bruises. She also makes a great model! Emilee was wearing a cleat on one foot and a 5 inch heel on the other. It made it very difficult for her to balance. The background in this photo was captured with a 5 megapixel iphone 4. I took the photo of Emilee in the Kirk Pullen Photography studio and combined the two pictures in Photoshop.

Zombie - Before and After - The Walking Pullens

If you are interested in seeing what kind of work goes into a zombie family portrait, just wait for 2 seconds. The screen should flip back and forth between the before and after looks. As you can see, we used minimal make up to accentuate our eye sockets and the rest was done by me in Photoshop. My daughter is the only one who did not have any tears on her outfit and I completed that in Photoshop as well. My wife and I took about 30 minutes to pick out clothing at a local second hand clothing store. I used a knife to cut holes in our outfits and then took them outside and rolled them in some mud. The mud smelled awful!!! I photographed each one of us in the Kirk Pullen Photography studio and used the same lighting scenario for each of us. I should have several other zombie pictures from this session in the near future, so stay tuned.

The Walking Pullens

So I really like this certain television show and I thought...hey I could turn my family into zombies. We'd like to thank Sarah's Refuge here in Warsaw, NC for letting us purchase the cool zombie threads. I sort of look like a zombie in real life so it wasn't much of a transformation for me. I spent an hour or two last night putting make up on and getting all the outfits muddy for the family photo session.
