Love these portraits we captured as the sun was setting. You wouldn’t know it, but it was a Sunday afternoon with a packed beach. It’s not easy for most people being in front of a camera with lots of people around, but she nailed it! Loved her fierceness and confidence.
I really love working with women who want a portrait session, it’s one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Bring an outfit change or two and we’ll head to your favorite spot. I also love working with business professionals that are looking for natural, outdoor portraits that are different than your typical (and boring!) isolated-on-white headshot.
Miss Fashion Week International 2018: Kassidy Young at Wynwood Walls
Kassidy Young flew in from Australia to take part in Miss Fashion Week in Miami. She previously won Miss Fashion Week Australia 2018. I was ecstatic when she posted on her facebook page that she took home the title Miss Fashion Week International 2018!! She is so deserving of it. She is smart, extremely talented, so gracious and one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I met her and her parents in Wynwood for an urban photo shoot. She changed into different outfits in quite possibly the quickest time I’ve ever seen 🙂 The time flew by very quickly – Wynwood has so many walls with murals that you can spend quite a bit of time wandering the area for different backgrounds.

She wanted to have a meeting she was having with some clients documented. I met this ambitious and driven group of women in a hotel suite at the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. Besides for photographing Amanda in action, I also photographed each woman individually so they have some professional portraits for their websites and social media platforms.
We then headed to Plnthouse, a restaurant by chef Michael Kinney, which is located inside the hotel. The restaurant itself is beautiful. There is so much natural light streaming in and potted plants throughout give it a natural, environmental feel. (See a photo of Plnthouse.) It was a dream to photograph there (location is everything!) I took some portraits of Amanda that are some of my favorites from this session, and photographed the group as they continued their meeting.
