Kate is gracing the space on my feed today with this captivating image from our session in Nashville this past summer. Kate’s pensive look here let’s the viewer create their own narrative for this scene. it’s a great example of how one can connect with an image without the subject’s eyes making the connection. Plus, Kate’s simply lovely no matter how you capture her

Mecca deserves a lot of the credit for this shot from downtown Santa Fe. She spotted this bench in the shade with all this dappled light hitting the wall behind it. All she had to do was say “what about over there?” and I knew this would be a great spot. Add in Mecca’s strong connection to the viewer to this captivating location and this is what we get. Thank you for partnering up with me for this shoot, Mecca!

Making a “180” from yesterday’s light and bright fitness style post, this image of Kate flips the “feel”. This subdued and moody image was shot at the same parking garage location as the aforementioned previous post with just a wardrobe change and a short 50 foot walk to these stairs.
Kate does a fantastic job here with expression matching the tone and feel of the surroundings. Beauty and versatility!

Dustin Steel perfectly executing an idea I had during our shoot at Sinking Creek Farm in Murfreesboro. The weather was gloomy and we just leaned right into. No image manipulation here, just graded the color to set the mood.
