Hope {Concept Photography Central Virginia}

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
–Emily Dickinson
I am TERRIBLY behind on blogging. I haven’t blogged most of my 2017 clients and I’m sorry for that. It’s been quite a long spring and summer for me and I will get back to blogging more often! I am going to start with this peacock-inspired photoshoot from the spring.
I found these peacock wings at an antique store in Ruckersville and they immediately drew my attention. I went back several times over the next month, to see if they were still there, and they were. I knew I had to get them and create a concept around them so for the next year I spent time finding pieces of jewelry and masks, creating the skirt, borrowing my niece’s homecoming gown for a second outfit and arranging for a model–Clara.
I swear she could be a model in her own right, and has the best style! It doesn’t hurt she’s one of the most artistic and sweet young women I know. And she jumped on the chance to create this concept with me!
Last year my focus was often on reflections. I don’t know why but they ended up in nearly every photoshoot I had. This year I’ve focused on creativity–my own and my models. I am like a kid at Christmas planning a concept, building the costumes and seeing the vision unfold.
If this is something you enjoy let me know and we can figure out how to incorporate it into your own sessions as well! I only have 3 more weekend dates for the fall so get in touch with me ASAP to schedule your session.
