Commercial clothing shoot

Recently, I dove head-first into the world of commercial photography when I agreed to shoot the Virginial Dunn Spring 2013 line (www.virginia-dunn.com).  I have done a couple of little commercial/product projects here and there in the past, but nothing to this scale.  It was a lot of fun & a lot of hard work.  I quickly learned that shooting a clothing line on spunky little models is quite a bit different than doing portrait shoots.  My beautiful little models were sooooo great!  

 

 

Fall fauna

Fall is such a yummy time for outdoor photography.  This is the time of year the “golden hour” is its most golden & delicious.  The leaves are turning, apples are in season, the air is crisp, and the wildflowers are in full bloom. Wait, what?  wildflowers, you say?

Yes, here in southern Louisiana, fall brings beautiful hues of purple, yellow, & white by the way of gorgeous wildflowers.  They grow on the sides of the roads, on the creek banks, & and most anywhere left overgrown and wild.  It would be easy to overlook these lovely little patches of color since they decide to pop up in the most unkempt of areas… a little reminder that beauty can be found anywhere, even the most unexpected of places.

Still-life photography is definitely not my specialty, but I wanted to capture some of the fall flora & fauna, so I took my camera & went on a wildflower hunt.  I took all of these shots on the short ride from my home to my daughter’s daycare.  I hope you enjoy my fall flowers & remember to look for the unexpected beauty in your life :)
