When I was a little girl I loved to play dress up. To put on a sparkly dress was to become part of another world of imagination where anything was possible. There is just something so freeing about dressing as someone else, assuming another identity, and becoming that person for a short while.
I often feel like this as I look through magazines and catalogs. I get lost in the images, in the clothing, in the models and the characters they have become. Every time I open up an Anthropologie catalog I feel this way. For a while now I have wanted to do a session inspired by these thoughts and images I have in my mind. So when I talked with my good friend, Bri, of Brianna Anderson Photography based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, and she was equally as excited about a session of this type, I knew we had to try it.
This past weekend we met up in San Diego and we had the best afternoon as we got dolled up, found the absolute perfect location to shoot, and avoided the threatening rain clouds overhead. It is so rewarding as a photographer when something you have already created in your head becomes reality in the form of an actual photograph. I just love these next images of Bri. She is just so stunning.
I don’t even know how many images we actually took and which pictures ended up on which camera. When all was said and done we just burned a couple of cd’s so we could edit our favorites from the session. Here are a few of my edits of the images that Bri took of me.
I’m currently working on another concept shoot with a client of mine and can’t wait to do more sessions that really push me as an artist.
