Welcome to my latest personal project, a series of “mood shoots.” For these shoots, I wanted to explore a certain look and feel in my portraiture, working with light and shadow, styling, and directing. As with all my personal projects, I just sort of dream up these ideas and form a vision in my mind, and then it’s all about execution and letting them take on a life of their own.
Atop a hill at sunset, we created stunning portraits against the changing sky. Jessica had also participated in my Pointe of View ballerina series, and she has since been signed as a professional model, so we had the best time playing around with this shoot, even with the chilly winds and the rugged terrain on this hill. See some of my favorites below:
Model: Jessica Boynton
Hair & Makeup: Becky, Beautiful One for A-List Makeup
