I love the dramatic.
Eye popping make up. Trendy clothes. Intense stares.
All of it gets me thinking creatively for something that's fun, mixed with a bit of intensity, and accomplished with a flair of sophistication. That's what I was trying to capture with this Vogue Inspired Session shot at sunset with golden light dripping down from dried out tree branches over sun bleached grass. To me, this dry and, for the most part, colorless area set off the models better than any other setting could.
To complete my mind-envisioned creation, I called upon two friends of mine with just such a flair. They were more than happy to be my models and truly helped to create the exact feeling i was going for - detached and distant but nonetheless intense.
Enjoy this beautiful setting and these beautiful people....
Hallie pulls off the "serious face" like no one else I have worked with but I just *love* seeing her burst into smile here! It's completely charming.
My models were such troopers to hike all around the dead leaves just so I could get the "perfect" shot!
I couldn't have asked for a better sunset. This light is just delicious to me!
I am so pleased with how these turned out. I couldn't ask for two better models and I was so grateful to work with them both.
