Today I had the chance to collaborate and shoot with the wonderful Allegra Marie Villella for her earthy lifestyle session. I approached the healthy vine covered cottage Portland home to meet this bright photographer knowing instantly I was going to like her based on the blog theme. My makeup was done by Lena Walsh, who was just as cool and relaxed as Allegra throughout the entire shoot. I brought a bag overflowing of Free People intimates and we played with lace all day, getting wrapped up in beautiful hanging trees while drinking tea. Magical atmosphere, magical morning.
Working with new photographers is always fun. Everyone has their own way of doing things, perspective, space, how they move around you, how they want you to move, new feedback making you better, and different ways & words to make you laugh or feel just a bit more comfortable.
