I’ve known Kristen for right around a year now- she’s going into her junior year at JMU and is one of the college kids at the church where Matt was the youth pastor. I remember the first time I sat down and talked with her, leaving feeling utterly amazed at her maturity and pure heart. Kristen is the bee’s knees. A total sweetheart and an incredible listener, I was always stoked for holiday breaks when I knew she and the other girls would be home.
Matt & I had a Friday afternoon off together so we decided to head over to the theater to see “Brave.” After the movie, all I could think about was the fact that I wanted to photograph someone with red, curly hair, and after Matt suggested I call Kristen I knew I HAD to photograph her. So she met me at dawn the following morning (I still love you for that, girl!) and we frolicked among the tall grasses.
Kristen, thank you so much for being my muse! I’m so thankful to have had the chance to get to know you over the past year, and watching you grow is nothing but a joy to me. Thanks for lending me your modeling talents that Saturday morning- I’ll love you forever for it!
The first half of these images were developed + scanned at Indie. From here on down, the rest of the images were developed + scanned at Richard Photo Lab. It’s definitely interesting to see what a difference there is!
KRISTEN!! I die! You’re gorgeous!!
I will say- I metered this session using the in-camera meter, and I don’t recommend it- my exposures weren’t nearly as accurate as when I used my Sekonic light meter during Rob & Alicia’s dawn film session. Just my personal experience! The light meter is definitely worth the investment if you’re looking to get serious about film.
Also! Winner winner chicken dinner time! The winner of the camera tote giveaway is Hollie Dyson! Hollie, you have 24 hours to shoot me an email. And… go!
One last thing. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER!
