Between Valentina's long, blonde hair and the gorgeous golden dress, Claudia's Italian series makes my heart sing. The motion created throughout this series evokes excitement, giving the portraits a life-like feel. Each shot is captured at the perfect moment for a windswept look as her hair dances across her face. The cool color palette creates a calming effect that is both contagious and radiant. I find Claudia's photography to be truly inspiring.
Here's to those who inspire us and don't even know it!
From the Photographer | I travel quite a bit for my photography business but it rarely gets me to the beach. So I was even more excited about this shoot. I was lucky to meet Valentina on a recent trip to Tuscany. She is an art history student in Arrezzo and a photographer herself. Working with her was an absolute delight. It was an incredibly windy day when we set out to do this shoot but rather than pack up and postpone I decided to use the wind to my advantage and let her dance with it. I love working outdoors – especially for boudoir sessions it kind of sets a different mood than being in a hotel room. The open space, the nature around you is a powerful accessory to work with.
