Wild Child Session: Halie Johnson
There are moments in life when the planets align and magic happens. November 9th was one of those days.
My dear friend and regular creative collaborator, Alex, mentioned a gorgeous young photographer named Halie way back in August. I checked out her worked and was instantly floored. She is, without a doubt, one of the most talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Alex suggested we approach her about her possibly being in front of the camera. She gave us an immediate yes and so we began piecing together our ideas.
Generally, our ideal aesthetic when working together is free flowing, natural beauty caught in organic moments. We wanted to showcase her unapologetic feminism and so we chose lacy, sheer lingerie pieces with delicate rings and loose waves in her hair. I focused on bringing out the gorgeous color of her green eyes. I played with neutral browns in the crease and placed a dusty rose on her cheek. She was not only a delight to work with but made my job that day extremely easy.
We got her out on a rock on the lake and eventually transitioned to a much moodier concept with tea lights and dark lingerie.
As I said before, the day was magical. Halie is a beautiful soul and I feel like I've gained a wonderful friend. As for Alex, she never ceases to amaze me. Her work is incredible. We have a few things up our sleeve for the coming months I can't wait to share with you. Be on the lookout for more information about Wild Child Sessions!
