A Retro Summer Personal Photoshoot

August 14, 2020

I got the inspiration for this shoot from the retro summer style of the west coast & untamed landscapes that can be found within the desert. 

It had been over a year since I did a portrait session because I have been so caught up in mastering my product photography style. But, needless the session went perfectly & the results are exactly what I envisioned.

We arrived at an untouched clearing next to an Ingles around high-noon. I know, so many photographers just gasped because “you should never shoot midday”.  Well, I did & I couldn’t be happier. I wanted harsh shadows & bright landscapes, and that is what the Georgia summer gave me.

Featured Pieces: Athleta Conscious Crop, Madewell Silk Camp Shirt, Bullboxer Boots, & Target Boyfriend Jeans

Camera Gear: Canon 80D & Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens

Concluding Thoughts

I loved every second of this retro photoshoot!  It felt so freeing to create without an end-goal, just a vision. I didn’t have deadline or anything.

We all need the freedom to just create for the sake of creating. I hope you enjoyed this post & found some of your own inspiration. If you have any questions about photography, I have some resources on my Instagram Reels & some more posts that you may find helpful.
