Bohemian Romance – Fashion Photography Shoot

I collaborated with the most incredibly talented women on this shoot. This team was on fire! It had been awhile since I had photographed something that was my own vision, and I definitely encountered some bumps along my creative process. This group of images may have started in my mind, but they grew into more than I could have ever imagined all on my own. Enjoy.


As I came to the part in my workflow where I import the images into Photoshop for editing, I stopped myself. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with these pictures! I did some color correcting and dodging and burning in Lightroom, but I simply couldn’t bring myself to use a clone or liquify tool on these images. Amanda is absolutely gorgeous just the way she is. And there are enough overly-retouched photos out there. Let’s keep it real. Girl power.

Huge Thank You to all of the ladies who worked on this shoot.
