When she inquired with me for a portrait session, I was pumped as hell because she is so beautiful and even more stunning inside. She is a close friend of my wife’s and has become a great friend to me along the way. Her name is Angela and she is a sincere badass.
When I asked her what sort of vibe she had in mind for the shoot, she told me that she trusted us and that we could DO WHATEVER WE WANTED. What?! “Yeah,” she said. “I totally trust you guys and am up for anything!” Then she got even cooler.
Hayley and I were inspired by Angela’s love of being on the water, wanting to illustrate her airiness and inner beauty. Her outer beauty speaks for itself. We wanted to make something dramatic without the weight. Something bold. We wanted to put together a body of work that took pieces of Angela and sewed them all up into a new garment that could only be worn by her.
I think we nailed it. Some of these photographs are my favorite to date. Additionally, I had a blast on this evening. My mom even came out to meet us and assist. Angela was a dream to shoot, each frame she changed her look. Each. Frame. I teased her that she must have done this before but she assured me that she hadn’t. Oh, and that sky.. it’s real. It is one of the best sunset nights I have seen, it was a perfect storm. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
Here are some of the best moments:
