This winter, Elizabeth wanted some photos to portray her heart in the season she has been in. So we delved into some foliage, and we played somber music that evoked her grief.

Elizabeth grew up in dance school, so it was easy for her to express herself through movement. I feel like this truly captured her emotions. Her sorrow, her confusion, and her fight for a sense of stability in the midst of it all.

This kind of photoshoot, the kind where I portray a season of someone’s life, is my ABSOLUTE favorite.

Towards the end of the shoot, we were both close to tears. I love connecting with someone in their season of life, and portraying it in an authentic way. More to come soon!

Enjoy these moody photos. And consider letting me connect with your season of life through photography. Whether it be a light or dark season.





And here is a cheeky photo of Elizabeth to end on a lighter note! 🙂
