Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always been an avid fan of the button down shirt, whether you pair it up with a clean and polished look or a dressed down one, it is the go to essential that can complete many an outfit. This week I shot model Valeria Leonova in soho, who’s personal style was an ode to the button down mantra. Valeria had just come from a couple of go-sees before our shoot and I immediately loved her outfit. The very masculine yet, edgy look paid homage to the 1920’s look, when women first started sporting trousers. Details on her outfit can be found below.
Every photographer loves the chance to film/ photograph a subject that inspires them to WANT to photograph them. As a photographer one of the best things about photographing an individual is the emotion and/or enthusiasm you get from the person being photographed, you start to relish that moment and are even more excited to take photo after photo. Because everyone knows that a photographer can be good, but their subject must be better. In a sense it’s a two way street, the dance of give and take, where the subject gives and the photographer takes. Now enough of my endless blathering, today’s blog post is one I am super excited to share!! I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Korean models, Jihye Park and Ji Young Kwak, after walking the Badgley Mischka show. I absolutely loved shooting them!! They brought so much energy, hitting pose after pose and were by far my favorite models during NYFW to photograph. The two friends have been spotted on multiple streetstyle blogs, and on the runway of multiple shows during that week. Without further ado, I am very excited to share with you all these photographs from that day!
