Valory is a talented musician whose violin abilities have taken her around the world. She has even played in Carnegie Hall. We ventured out into a local nature conservancy with her violin to take some beautiful musician photographs for her. The sound of her violin echoed off the surrounding mountains through the valley of wildflowers where she played. We splashed through the stream and danced barefoot beneath the waterfalls.
Leah contacted me at the end of her senior year at Virginia Tech to have belly dancing portraits taken. This was a first for me, but I was so excited to collaborate! Leah was a member of Virginia Tech's Hill and Veil belly dance organization and wanted some photos to use for her portfolio so she can continue to perform. Since we were getting a little out of the box for her photo session already, I decided that I would make a crown of wood and light green crystal quartz shards as well!
I teamed up with Lauren from Bride of the Fox: Fine Vintage Women's Wear & Lingerie to photograph some stunning vintage pieces from her Etsy shop. The model for this portion of our photos is Meg, we have a few mutual friends, but this was my first opportunity to meet this lovely lady in person! I love when my internet acquaintances become IRL friends. This is part 2 from our shoot, if you missed part one, check out The Haunted: Rebecca for Bride of the Fox Vintage | Blacksburg Branding Photography. Stay tuned for more gorgeous vintage fashion in a hauntingly beautiful forgotten location filled with chipped paint, exposed brick, hardwood floors, and peeling floral wallpaper.
Brittany and I stopped in Richmond, Virginia for a bit of exploring on our way to the Chesapeake Bay over the summer. One of the locations that we visited while we were in town was the sprawling grounds of Hollywood Cemetery where we went walking amongst the ghosts.
