Here it is – our latest conceptual portrait. Following in the style of Paper Airplanes, Dock Jumper, and Butterfly Girl, we’re excited to release the latest and greatest in our series of personal work.
The landscape may look familiar from our trip to California earlier this year – the dramatic views of the west coast definitely served as inspiration for this picture. Make sure to head over to our website and see the image full size. Also, keep reading for behind the scenes photos & insight into how this newest image came together…
Earlier this year when Chris and I were traveling Route 1 in California, we shot a handful of landscapes knowing that some would stand on their own as photos, while a few others held different possibilities, serving as both backgrounds and sources of inspiration for new personal portraits.
This particular photo, from just north of San Luis Obispo was one of the first landscapes we made in California.
Months after shooting the original photo, we imagined a concept and a portrait that would pair with the natural beauty of the California coast perfectly. The field of wildflowers ultimately inspired Chris to continue the flowers from the background to the subject, pairing our model with the natural beauty of her flower crown and bouquet.
We couldn’t have asked for better support in making this photo. Many thanks to the talented Wendy Oswald Kinney for wardrobe and prop styling and Tanja Hudson for her work with our model’s hair.
Also a big thank you to Cara Anderson for the behind the scenes shots from our studio.
