Empowerment and Elegance

Posted on Friday, October 14, 2016

I am excited to show you "Empowerment and Elegance" my editorial photo series featuring Allee Struve. I was inspired by the 21st Century woman, self expression, and dreams. When styling this shoot I played with mixing vintage and new pieces to contrast the past and the present. The dreamy and open background of the shoot represents a dream-like environment. Allee and I drove out to the middle of nowhere to find a cornfield (which was much harder than we expected). We finally stubbled upon a throne-like tree stump that was absolute perfection. Allee embodies sublime strength and beauty. I hope you enjoy this photo series! Click to enlarge photos.
