This is Julia. She is one of the most beautiful people I know! She is so wise and strong. She gets things done and does everything with humility, kindness, and strength. She has inspired me so much and encourages me constantly. I felt so lucky to take her senior portraits! She is a literal dream!
Photo tip: when you aren't shooting during golden hour and the lighting is super harsh, get creative! I have realized this year that I am afraid of lighting that isn't golden hour lighting. I have accustomed to taking photos at a certain time that when then it happens to be afternoon/ early evening I feel lost! I am working on breaking this habit but when in doubt try new things! Take photos in random neighborhoods, by cool walls, random streets! I have seen that my favorite shots from this shoot were from doing those random new things!
