Third Ward Target Photoshoot

Vanessa Jordan Photography

As many of you know (and for those that don't) I am OBESSED with Target. So as you can imagine I was so excited when Target reached out to be a part of their Rep/Sponsorship Program. I decided to curate this photoshoot to showcase the AMAZING clothes Target has and how easy it is to add these pieces to your wardrobe. (Also how great they look in photos! *Tip for those thinking of what to wear for their next session, look at Target's clearance rack to find some great hidden gems!*

I had the wonderful and extremely talented Gabby as my model (check her out on Instagram @guppymay18). A fellow lover of Target which made this photoshoot all the more fun. Plus most of these pieces I already had in my closet!

The first outfit was this Mossimo Jean Jacket and Xhilaration Lace Dress. Both of the pieces are great stables to have in your closet. Dresses are perfect for any session, they give movement which flatters any body. I love this distressed look of this jean jacket. It gives that live in feel. Again another perfect piece for photoshoots or sessions because you can great a totally different look by taking the jacket off or putting it back on. Also it keeps you warm on chilly nights!

We styled this outfit with a pair pastel colored flats, minimalistic necklace, rings and some fresh flowers (I mean who doesn't like fresh flowers?!?!) (Also side note for my local Milwaukee readers, if you need a cute hairdo for either a wedding or a photo session, check out the DryBar! Let me know below if you would like me to white a post about them and types of hair styles that work well for photo sessions.)

The next outfit featured this Pink Crushed Velvet Bomber Jacket from Mossimo and this basic white tee from A New Day. Bomber jackets have become super popular and they are super easy to style! They look great with a simple t-shirt and jeans of even spice it up a bit and wear it over a little black dress. The possibilities are endless!

This basic white tee is something everyone should have in their closet. It is a perfect base to add anything on top. Tuck it in or leave it loose, another perfect piece for photo sessions.

We styled this outfit with a simple pair of dark wash jeans and sneakers for more of a casual vibe.

To spice up the outfit we swapped out the sneakers for a pair of black high heels. Completely changes the outfit right? This is a perfect way to change up a look during a photo session without changing your outfit entirely. You don't need your entire wardrobe to have a different look during a photo session.

Walking a few more blocks in the Third Ward we found a new "location" which complimented the look perfectly. Cities are perfect for finding new "locations" just down the block without having to drive across town for a new look. For those readers that don't live close to a big city, another alternative is college campuses which are full of interesting nooks and crannies for photoshoots. (Again let me know if you would like to see a post about finding locations for photoshoots on college campuses or anywhere else!)
