Not Your Ordinary Senior Portrait Session

Congratulations to Anna Huffman who will be graduating with the class of 2018! When Anna contacted me about doing her senior portraits, she told me she wanted the standard cap and gown photos but she also wanted to use flour in a dance action photo sequence. I have worked with dancers for years now, but I have never worked with flour during a photo session. I was happy to accept the challenge and intrigued by the  possibilities of making some unique images! When you work with flour, it goes everywhere and you had better prepare beforehand, covering up anything that you don't want messy. During the two hour session, we had such a good time trying different movements with the flour! Anna's mother also participated in throwing some flour on the background and Anna during the session. Anna had some nice things to say about her experience with Kirk Pullen Photography. On her social media page she said, "18 years of dance pictures and i have never had this much fun during a shoot & this guy is AWESOME! #kirkpullenphotography

2018 Mount Olive Pickle Festival

One of the highlights of the Mount Olive Pickle Festival this past weekend was Circus Stella. They performed death defying tricks and included the audience in the fun! I was hired by the Mount Olive Pickle Company to photograph all the events at the festival. There were so many family friendly events to attend and participate in. Some of my favorites to photograph were the pickle eating contest, mascot races, bicycle racing and the various musical performances.trucks#circusstella #kirkpullenphotography #mountolivepickles #mountolivepicklefestival #mountolivephotographer
