I love vintage styled photo shoots. However, I see so many these days in which the subject is dressed totally in the photographer’s props. In some cases, the props become the focal part of the photo. While I still love the look, I prefer that each element in my photographs have personal meaning to my subject.
That’s what made this shoot so special. The coat, handbag, and watch were her grandmother’s. The pearls: her great-great grandmother. The suitcase: ok, the suitcase is mine, but it works so well with Collierville Town Square
, I just couldn’t leave it behind!
The weather was gorgeous, and the resulting photographs…..I think they are personally, fabulously, vintage-inspired.
I am often asked how much editing I do on photographs. In this case, I added a little cross-processing + a little “glamour glow”, which seemed appropriate for a vintage-inspired look. No cropping and no reality-altering-liquify or warp. I try to get my work as accurate as possible in camera – I’m old-school like that. Hey, that means I’m vintage-inspired, too!
I’ll post the rest of the pictures to your gallery later this week. In the meantime…..Enjoy!!
