My most recent photo session was with Emmaline, an Australian singer and model. When I conceived the idea of a nighttime shoot in front of a street-full of Christmas lights, I wanted to collaborate with the right model. I always try to match each person I photograph with a specific idea for their shoot.
Emmaline was up for the idea and we talked a bit about wardrobe. After arriving on time, which photographers always appreciate, she rocked this beautiful, white empire-waist dress. I love how the white gives a natural high contrast to the darkness of the night.
I knew the cascade of blue lights in the backdrop would photograph well with her eyes, but the bubblegum-pink lip gloss was a bonus, and added just the right small splash of opposite color to the shots.
Although it was chilly, Emmaline didn’t complain, but kept her good nature. I had a great time working with her. She had just the right balance being laid-back and professional. I look forward to next time.
