In about 2 weeks, Eleanor is turning one! And for her first birthday, we did an early morning session at Jeffery Mansion in Bexley. I had never shot there before and I was really excited to get to do so. We got absolutely PERFECT diffused light from the cloudy morning. Eleanor was a super champ and she lasted almost the ENTIRE hour and a half while we also got some whole family shots! I was literally giddy with excitement looking at the back of my camera and had a really hard time not chimping on my camera. My assistant/husband, Nik, was my behind the scenes photographer this time and I am glad he was there to catch these few and far between shots of me working. Thought you guys might like to see them!
behind the scenes
With the Fashion Meets Music Festival in it's third year, the fashion portion has grown each year. I was excited to shoot backstage and in the photographer's pit. Shooting fashion was a new experience for me this year, having typically been a concert shooter. I made a lot of connections and saw lots of amazing collaborations going on backstage. With hair and makeup by students at Paul Mitchell and designs by local designers such as Celeste Malvar-Stewart, Lydia Hopmann, Cierra Reeve-Cunningham, and Horacio Nieto. Below are some of my favorite images from the runway!
