Daughter of local photographer, a film student, avid Star Wars fan, and budding young fashion model, Katie Shea Walters sure has her hands full modeling, walking in events such as the recent “Philadelphia Fashion Week”, oh, and-as mentioned-she’s a film student.
Katie and I first got together in January of 2013 and have worked together a couple times since then. These images are from our very first shoot together. This was very much a run-and-gun style shoot as we ran around a Philadelphia area town called Manayunk and captured images in several different areas of town. This shoot was a stylized, fashion-influenced, environmental portrait shoot to get Katie some unique and fun pictures that she could add to her portfolio.
The light source in these images was a single light, a 400W head with a 39” Rotalux Deep Octa bank (one of my personal favorite lighting modifiers!)
Check out a few of the images we captured below.

In 2010, Mary Grace made a dream of hers a reality when she entered the National American Miss Pageant and won “Overall Most Promising Model”. This promising young model entered the National American Miss Pageant contest once more in 2011 and, after winning, was named “2011 Miss Pennsylvania Jr. Teen Queen”.
This outgoing and adventure-loving teen is dually enrolled in Montgomery County Community College and poised to graduate high school as a junior this year. Mary Grace contributes in various charities in south eastern Pennsylvania including the ALS walk in Allentown in the autumn of 2011 as well as the Second Harvest Food Bank where she packs boxed food for more than 1800 local seniors.
Setting herself apart from the masses of teenagers in our modern age, Mary Grace leans heavily on her upbringing and Born Again Christian roots, preferring to be a leader for good among her peers rather than falling into rank with the commonly accepted stereotypes associated with today’s teens.
As she works tirelessly to better herself, finish school, and continues her charitable endeavors, Mary Grace awaits her next big break and opportunity to share more with the support network of people who surround her. Impressively, this teen seemingly grows up without getting older, it leaves little doubt in the mind that her next trip in the spotlight will be a more permanent one.
Mary Grace is currently represented by Expressions Models. See her information here »
Mary Grace, her mother, and I got together to shoot some fun fashion style photos with a cool edge to them; we had a total blast working together and below are some of my favorite images from that shoot!
