I have no words to describe Nicole's beauty. I let my camera's results do the talk for you. What strike me most about Nicole is her long lustrous thick hair. It would be every girl's dream to have such long thick hair. I know I do.
What I have learned about Nicole is that she is studying psychology and in her second year. From what I understood Nicole likes things to be simple. I then realized later on that Nicole did not wear any bracelet, necklace or earrings during the photo session. Even her make up is very minimal as you can see on these pictures.
She is a little shy and need some of my direction to pose which she took my instruction very well. I love Nicole's expression and simple poses each time I shot her with a multiple shoot mode. Sometimes it shows her looking down, others shows she is playing with her hair, all which are easy poses and very simple. But still the result are really beautiful. Looking back and looking at these pictures it does shows Nicole's personality; simplicity, feminine and elegant.
I created a fresh bouquet flower and tiara for her to wear during the shoot. She then asked me how do I know that purple is her favorite color. Well, I did not know. I just picked the easiest flower to create into a tiara and Wax flower is very easy to create into a tiara for her to wear. She liked the small bouquet flower and the tiara and at the end of the photo session I gave them to her.
Nicole is a true natural beauty. I think you would agree with me. Don't you?
Already I am having some difficulties to pick which photos to put on the blog post as they are all beautiful. In the end I ended up with these images which I think it's a little too much for a blog post. But I can't help and wanted to share these pictures with you.
As far as editing; I always love the look of images from process film. So I tried to imitate those the ones that comes from a roll of film. I searched high and low on how to capture this and I love what I have found and learned so far. For other images I am using Pretty Presets (here) just for fun and to see how they turn out to be. They are beautiful too.
From the beginning I told each of my model/client that I wanted the photo session is as much fun for her and as for me. It is very important that my client feels happy and have fun during the session, especially outdoor during summer as many bugs and mosquitoes might come to them. Not only that, I wanted my client finished the session having a great experience photographed by me.
Photographed Nicole was a great experience for me. Not only I captured her elegant natural beauty, I have learned so much about shooting outdoor; lighting condition, poses, composition. I also learned more about my camera. I guess, each session is different and each session guaranteed that you (as a photographer) will learn new positive and negative experiences.
If you have any idea and would like me to photograph you, please inbox me through my FB page (here) or email me (here). I love trying new stuff and we can work together to create beautiful photographs that we both like.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
