When lady shows up to be photographed in a cocktail dress with a vintage camera and lace gloves, my job becomes a whole new level of fun. Someone else loves cameras and wants me to photograph them? Yes, PLEASE.

Props definitely make a portrait shoot more personal. Not to mention they can also relieve some of the nervous butterflies of stepping in front of the camera. The focus is still on the lady (or gentleman), but there is an element of distraction that I’ve found makes one more comfortable.

Kelli was a joy to photograph with her Irish features and calm demeanor. She is a lovely lady and I’m stoked to share these photos with you
