I think this has to be one of my favourite shoots….ever?
Annabelle came into the studio and was the perfect subject. She’s a dancer, with a passion and dedication to ballet in particular. She brought along her stunning Tutu, blue which was perfect to compliment her eyes too.
I styled this shoot to be darker, moodier and creatively lit. There’s both contrast and softness. Annabelle has become a real focus, and her ability to relax and portray soft, serene and innocence through her expression was amazing.
With some fresh flowers, we created a sense of interest in these final shots. I really love this series of three!
A Mix Of Portraits
We did capture some images of Annabelle without the tutu as well. The portrait below captures her stunning eyes and engaging expression.
Annabelle took direction really well. I guided her on how to hold the flowers softly and delicately. She moved in subtle movements (perfect for portrait photography), and just had a lot of fun.
In between these serious shots were lots of giggles, smiles and general fun.
