A shoot with Ariana and Kelsie

This isn't really my area of photography, but MUA Kelsie Gygi and I got together and did a small little shoot with Ariana Sterrett, who modeled for us. Hair by Ronni Seth. I may be terrible at giving direction, but Ariana did so well and was such a natural at movement/posing that I would find myself saying, "Could you, maybe... you know, move your hand like... YEAH!" It was fun. Definitely a new experience, since my style is either completely photojournalistic or at the least coaxed photojournalism, where I just tell my subjects to interact with each other and I'll capture the moments for something like an engagement shoot. My best work usually comes when I have absolutely no control over a situation except to capture it without interference. 

In any case... enjoy!


  1. Oh my goodness, she's beautiful! That second to last one is my favorite :)

  2. I'm the exact same way! Giving direction is something I'm trying to work on. You did a fine job here, Annie. :D

  3. Wow!! The colors and bokeh are incredible! I love how the romantic feel to these shots!
