This was my last session in Miami before moving north. Bitter sweet. We met at a park that had this beautiful white fence, open field and people riding on horses. It was a quiet little place tucked backed off a side street. Despite the very hot temperatures, humidity, and mosquitoes galore, I had a fun time photographing Alexa. Her mom showed up with a couple of outfits for her to change into and an awesome chair for a prop (which by the way she got at one of my favorite stores, Home Goods!). I think I need more props in my photography life. It added an extra element. I also loved the contrast between the grass + the trees + a single, funky chair. Alexa’s mom also made the adorable headband she is wearing in some of the pictures. Super crafty!
I decided to post these set of photos in black + white. I have always been drawn to black + white photographs. There is just something about them that I can’t really put my finger on. They seem to tell more of a story….or at least allow you to dream up your own story behind the picture.
