Sarah

 
 Photography:  Esther Boller
Model:  My beautiful best friend - Sarah

This photo shoot was inspired by this painting (below left) created by George Breitner  Right away my eye was drawn to it.  The composition feels so intimate and the shapes are simply elegant.  When I first had the idea to recreate this painting, I became super excited when I realized that I had the perfect beaded dress that I found at Goodwill a few years back.  I was saving it for the right photo shoot, and finally found the reason to bring it out after looking at this painting.


 







I've been really excited with the way these painting-inspired photos have been turning out.  They've been so much fun to shoot, and I've noticed a change in the way I look at compositions now.  I have some new photo projects coming up this weekend.  Can't wait to share more with you!
