I have had a vision of this session in my head for probably at least a year. If you know me, you know I love retro and vintage things. I probably like bohemian things as it’s kind of my personality – go with the flow don’t let much bother you, breezy. There are a few other sessions I’m itching to do but I think I will keep those ideas under wraps for now 😉 Anyhow, this session was styled by me. I didn’t have any help from vendors – not because I don’t value them but because I wanted this session more to be about the person rather than all the details. There is a huge empty field right by my house, that I drive by everyday. I’ve actually shot a maternity session there, and was planning on shooting this one there.. until all the yellow flowers died. So I drove around and checked out some of the other fields (a benefit to living on the edge of the city) and found this one. I saw a few flowers but mainly I chose it because it had not been mowed, and there was a building with a parking lot next to it. I drive by cool places to shoot ALL THE TIME but there is no where to park (besides people’s homes) anywhere near them so I kind of have to give up on them.
The dress is vintage, I put together the bouquet with grocery store filler, the suitcase is one of my personal belongings and I borrowed the chair from a friend’s home. Everything turned out perfectly! The light was SO nice that night and there was a soft breeze which would blow Deborah’s hair and dress or the flowers and grass just enough to show movement but not too much that it wasn’t pretty. I’m so happy with how this turned out! Thank you to Deborah, and her mother Beryl for their help!
