unMonday: retro portrait shoot

This weekend, I had the pleasure of doing a vintage/retro inspired photo shoot with my friend. I watched some Sue Bryce instructions on posing before we went out, so I would be prepared and could try to practice directing someone from behind the camera. If you ask me, it’s a bit intimidating from both sides of the lens. Lucky for me, Sabrina is always beautiful and I don’t think it would be possible to take a bad picture of her! She’s also a photographer, so she was very understanding. I’m so happy with how this day went (even though it was rainy and cold!) and I just love these portraits! I’m going to have to share quite a few with you right now…

Such a gorgeous lady! She obliged me as I tried to get her to do small smiles and lots of different poses. I think one of the best shots though is this unposed laughing one.

And these last few are a bit more contemporary than retro – due to the way I’ve edited them and had her pose.

What do you think? This last one is my favorite. A huge thank you to Sabrina for having such a fun photo shoot in mind and asking me to do this with her! She was such a great sport about everything ~ especially being silly on a tennis court in the rain. :)

    My favorite is the up close against the wall…the brown of her eyes, hair, eyebrows with the browns in the wall. There is just something so genuine about this picture!
