creative shoot | gold rush

Back in April when my mom was visiting me, we were out shopping and I came across a braided leather bracelet. As soon as I picked it up, a vision for a series of photos popped into my head. I pictured golden light, a western theme, flowing fabrics, and a feeling of softness. I decided to create a series of photos with a contemporary gold rush theme. Moments of inspiration, when they arrive, should never be ignored. I started sketching out ideas for the shoot and looking for a model to be my muse.

Luckily, I was introduced to Lotte through my friend Tiffany, who you may remember from my workshop this spring. A model hailing from The Netherlands, Lotte embodies grace and elegance. Also, I think she has the best hair in the world.

Lotte, thank you so much for your time and wonderful talent! I absolutely adored working with you and hope to do so again in the near future.

During one of our last photos of the day, this man just showed up and popped a disco ball into my frame. Lotte didn't miss a beat! Silliness and spontaneity make for really fun shots.
