Rustic California Styled Portrait’s Story
“The vision for this session came together when I first laid eyes on this short lace dress that my sister was wearing as a bridesmaid to a wedding! Kate, our model, had the perfect look to help tie this vision together. Such a timeless appearance combined with a sweet flare. Our shoot took place deep into a canyon that we had to hike to from a townhouse community.
We were literally racing the light as it was becoming dark quickly and the entire creative team who came along, picked up the pace and raced along side with me. I’m sure the day after we were all regretting it, but beauty is pain and I wasn’t about to let these beautiful ideas succumb to sore muscles as we viciously climbed steep hills!
This was my very first stylized shoot and there is absolutely no way anything I had envisioned for it would have come alive if I didn’t have the most creative and selfless vendors donating their time, skill and money to make this successful. They deserve all the glory.”
