I set up a little modeling session with my niece, Ella, for her birthday. I can't tell you how blown away I was by her talent! Once she warmed up and got comfortable in front of the camera I was able to get some of my favorite shots in my whole portfolio.
We started off with a soft sweet style with glass boxes, fresh florals, and a metallic dress to die for. Once we got past those though, I was able to let Ella express her own style and shot some more natural photos. She rocked a white lace dress with a fringe suede vest to create the coolest 70's vibe you've ever seen. I am pretty sure Ella was supposed to be born in a different era. I handed Ella my Pentax ME Super 35mm camera and sent her on her way to explore and shoot whatever she wanted. I am pretty excited to see the film because who knows-maybe I have a protege on my hands!
Happy 13th Birthday Ella and thanks for letting me drag you out in the cold!
