Outdoor Portraits with Jennifer

I love discovering new places to shoot, so finding this field of wildflowers at Jericho Beach was perfect for some whimsical, etheral environmental portraits.

I feel like Jericho is going to be a “go to” spot for me. This is the second shoot I have done here and the feel is so different from this shoot of portraits with Catherine and then couples portraits with her partner Liam.

I could not have been more excited when I got to Jericho to see this little meadow full of wild flowers. When I had gone earlier in June, it was just grassy looking and there was no hint that this would have popped up.

Jennifer is so tiny that she embodied this  ethereal, woodland nymph-esque shoot perfectly. I had a vintage bias nightgown in my studio wardrobe, and had recently made a flower crown which matched the colours perfectly.

Also the bokeh on the Carl Zeiss Jena lens was beautiful. I am almost predominantly using legacy lenses at this point and although sometimes they can be a little quirky, the bokeh and creamy feel is definitely worth it for me.
