If you've been reading my blog at all, you know that botanicals are a massive inspiration for my creative eye. There is literally nothing that excited me more on camera than florals. And if I can pair florals with compelling faces? I'm in heaven. So my friend Cori (who is also my photo assistant from time to time) agreed to help me test out my new "studio" in my garage. It was a great opportunity for me to get used to shooting with available light indoors...and for her to have some updated portraits. I kept the styling really simple and even if I didn't nail it, we had a lot of fun. Cori, of course, if flawless with little to no help from me...inside and out.
I've had such a busy fall that I've taken a break from blogging. This seems to happen more and more frequently as I get older. I really cherish this tiny corner where I can share personal projects, create pretty things and talk about photography. Yet, sometimes I feel burdened by creating content. Then I remember, it's just a creative space for myself...much like a sketchbook. It can be whatever I need it to be.
