It’s very rare that I get to experiment and play with my camera in an almost timeless setting anymore. With my wedding photography business getting older and wiser I have weddings booking year round now. I love that. I really never thought I’d be here with a legit business and a list of people who really want me to take their picture. It’s a little unreal. With a business comes all of the responsibility and timelines. Those model shoots I used to experiment with in my free time just don’t happen very often anymore. I think it’s important to experiment in your craft and try things outside of your usual style once in a while. It’s how we learn and ultimately how we grow. Plus, if you screw up a model shoot, there’s no pressure.
I happen to have a friend who enjoys photography and who, in her own words, has ” a bunch of gowns laying around.” Pretty much the perfect recipe for a good photo shoot. I called her up and asked her to come out to the woods with me. This is what we came up with.
Thanks to Jeannine for being an awesome model! Check out her travel website here.
