When I think about this session, there is so much I can’t take credit for.
From the setup to the execution, this day was just for the love of photography. In a little twist on how we do things, Lauren and I decidedly shot at different times and assisted during the rest. The styling, the lighting, the posing, the expressions…are all a product of people who feel alive creating something.
Lauren and I deliberately distanced ourselves from shooting in a studio a few years back because of how confining it felt. In this case, I can’t imagine photographing these any differently.
There is a hint of fashion, a hint of documentary, a hint of glamour….better yet, there is a piece of Joie, a piece of Lauren, and a piece of me in every one of these.
