Mt. Sinai Studio Shoot at ICP

We had a great opportunity this week to photograph in the studio at ICP. Each student worked hard preparing themselves for their studio shoots beforehand with personal writings and sketches of their desired picture. Each part of the image; lighting, cropping, and pose became carefully considered and constructed.

We had a truly amazing experience creating images of our successful evolution. It was an empowering and unforgettable experience.

“My shoot was amazing. In my shoot I was holding my stomach and breasts to show off my pregnant stomach. My photo showed that even though I have a disability, I can be a good mom.”- Shalon
