Travel Diary: Washington DC

I recently traveled to a city that is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to visit – Washington DC. As the nation’s capital, it surprisingly does not get tons of recognition for the beauty that it is. I loved every moment of my trip but I sadly was only able to capture the last day since I neglected to remember my camera until after we left our Airbnb almost daily. These pictures are all of Georgetown and the National Mall area  – focusing primarily on the Lincoln and Washington Memorials. Enjoy the few pictures I was able to capture from DC!

Vintage Photoshoot

Recently I’ve been missing the precision and vintage feel that film brings to each of my images so I purchased some Kodak Portra 400 film and scheduled a shoot. After having to develop all of my own rolls, not understanding the manual setting on my film camera and constantly smelling like developer had I drifted away from shooting with film my Sophomore year of high school. However, I wasn’t completely confident in my film abilities because I haven’t shot with film in over two years so I brought along my digital camera. I wanted my digital images to also have a vintage quality so I diy-ed a lens filter.

I placed a piece of clear saran wrap on my camera lens and attached it with a rubber band. Next, I added a thin layer of vaseline around the outside of my lens creating a frame around the lens opening and slowly building up to my desired opaqueness. With much trial and error, I created the perfect amount of haze and began shooting.

I was inspired by photographers Jerry Maestas and Samuel Elkins for this photoshoot if you would like to see my mood board click here!!

The film versions of this photoshoot will be coming soon

Dark Bath Portraits

I created this photoshoot beginning with the concept from a mood board that I created and progressing from there. I sketched poses, diy-ed a tulle veil and scouted for a model to get the best images as possible. I’ve recently become fascinated by the concept of portraits with water, I think it can add an element of beauty, darkness, innocence or even mystery to an image. I told my model my ideas for my photoshoot and got shooting. Enjoy.

Hipster Portraits

I recently photographed one of my good friends during golden hour. Her unique style paired with this new “golden” preset that I developed creates a very retro and hipster chic feel to these images. This is the first time that I’ve taken a more fashion-driven approach to my photography and I’m loving how these images turned out, it is one of my favorite shoots to date! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.

Dreamy Portraits

I was recently inspired by the breathtaking image taken by Sorelle Amore in her latest video and I had the idea to do a full shoot with an angelic or innocent quality in mind. To accomplish this, I styled my model in all white with bold makeup and made the background and surrounding area completely white and airy as well. I also edited them all to have a very light and contrasty feel to them to add both the innocent and light quality but preserving a fine art quality to each image. Here is the full set of dreamy portraits!

Golden Hour Portraits

Golden Hour, it is seen as the epitome of lighting perfection in every photographic community. Many photographers refuse to shoot at any other time of the day other than golden hour because it is so sacred. Golden hour is the hour or so before the sun goes down where the lighting is absolute perfection from almost any angle. I often shoot at golden hour because I love the tones it gives my images but for this shoot, I tried to really focus on the warm tones of my image. Here is the full set of golden hour images.

Pool Portraits

Inspired to create better portraits in the water I recently took some portraits using a pool and natural light to create a very summer-like feel. Here is the full set of images, edited and shot by me.
