A few years ago I had done a portrait session of myself for my website. You can see what I'm talking about in my my bio, here.
My husband shot the photos and I remember saying to him, I just wish my clients would trust me. I wish I could find someone who when I say I want to go to a muddy field they get it, and go.
That day finally came, and it was with a beautiful girl named Jessika from Algonac High School.
We met before hand, like I always do with my girls, and talked about how we wanted to embrace the natural look, sit in a field of wild flowers, splash in the water. When it came to the day of shooting I told them, there's a corner about 2 mins down the road filled with amazing wild flowers right now. If you don't mind being next to the side of the road and a ditch, we can go. And so we went. And the results are simple, and breathtaking, all at once.
It started to sprinkle and that little bit of grey was exactly what we needed to take her images from every day, to something that looks totally ethereal. Not to mention the way Jessika holds herself in front of the camera, it's stunning all the way around.
When we got done and were running back to our cars I looked over and saw a field newly plowed and just loved the texture. Remember when I said I just wanted to find someone who would love a barren, muddy old field, just like me? This is why. Jessika hopped right in, posed, and ended up looking like she should be in an urban outfitters magazine.
The next set was taken right at the AJBC Photography Home Studio.
After that we headed downtown to mix up our looks. And man, does she rock this edgier downtown look too.
Finally, as the sun was about to set, we got to play in the water! I was just in aw as she sat there, perched on top of the log, dress floating in the water, her hand delicately leaving ripples in the surface, at how gorgeous she was, especially in that moment.
