Renaissance | Orland Park Fashion Photographer

Do you ever have a dream photo shoot? This one was just that. It was built up as a small idea almost three months ago between myself, Katie and Leonie. We started it off with the idea of using a horse and it then compiled into becoming completely inspired by the Renaissance era, mixed with a little inspiration from Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. 

We had everything working in our favor. We had the best hair/make up artist (Nagham Alzreiqat) who completely understood our vision. All I needed to do was show her a photo and she nailed it. Leonie DeRango was doing this shoot with me and I have to tell you, she is so talented. We mesh so well together, work well side by side and always are benefiting one another. I love working with such talented people! It makes the experience THAT much better!

We ended up only having about an hour of sun left by the time we got there so we pushed it and got in as much as we could. What an experience it was! I have only worked with horses a couple times before but this was just stunning! Totally fit the scene and added an extra bonus to the images :)

I love how much I've been expanding my portfolio recently. I hope to keep continuing on doing so!
