Bohemian Chic | Orland Park Fashion Photographer

I never get to venture "outside of the box" as much as I would like. I absolutely love my client work but I am always thinking of ideas in the back of my head for personal projects and ideas. I don't consider myself a fashion photographer, but whole heartedly appreciate it and would love to keep expanding myself in this genre of photography!

My good friend DeNae has such a gorgeous look. Her dark, european features totally stood out on camera! We decided early on to do something with a Bohemian theme, which then came to the "Bohemian Chic" style we ended up with! :) The lovely Miss Amanda Pignatello styled this shoot and there is a combo of both her clothes mixed in with DeNae's. So many things to choose from! We'll just have to do another shoot together!

We had a super gloomy overcast day, which also made us have to reschedule because we thought we'd get rained out. Luckily, we didn't and I am actually really okay with the moody overcast skies. It just adds to them and the atmosphere I wanted.

Once we got back, we impulsively decided that doing some shots in the pool would be the icing on the cake. Literally, I was so blown away with the results! I haven't done anything like that before and I really feel like I took a step in the right direction with this shoot. Hoping to do more just like this soon! I love exploring!

This was one of my last sessions with the 85L, I seriously miss that piece of glass. Must invest in that ;)
