The cool thing about being a creative professional is that when you want to, you can step out of your comfort zone and try something completely new and different. This is the case with my shoot with Elyse. I’ve never tried my hand at fashion photography. So when I was planning a day of shooting with some photographer friends, and one mentioned that she was bringing Elyse along to model for us, I was both excited, and nervous. Luckily for me, Elyse is a natural in front of the camera, and such a fantastic model for my first fashion shoot. We photographed in and around the Old Port in Portland and I love this mix of images that go from edgy to light and coastal. Many thanks to Elyse for letting us practice on her, and to my friends Becca and Patty for a fun day together behind our lenses.
