Emma in Studio

Friday was my first shoot in my new studio space :) This is my roommate, Emma. The daylight in the studio was insane and I’ve been really drawn to this low fi aesthetic including the vflats and stands in the shot. A little secret is the last two were shot with a Trader Joe’s bagel bag on the lens! Lately I’ve been obsessed with classic black and white portraits so it seems like I’m growing a little series?

Women’s March NYC 2018

Yesterday’s Women’s March was breathtaking. The signs were creative and faces were full of hope and determination. I braved the wind with two very supportive friends and a piece of pink stretch velour to take some guerrilla style portraits of women marching on Central Park West.

At first it was intimidating to approach the subjects and manage the backdrop in the wind, but I surprised myself with the end result. The backdrop was sometimes a little janky but it was a fun challenge! I hope to do more portrait series like this even as a little self assignment :)
