Portraiture – Photography & Inspiration
We have come to the last of “Photography & Inspiration Month” posts: Portraiture. Portraiture or portrait photography is the type of photography usually being practiced during my modeling photoshoots. It is fun to go on shoots with local photographer friends! I wanted to feature some photos from a shoot that I had this past April. I had not worked with Robert Shatzer in a while, and it was nice to reconnect. He is one of my favorite photographers which I have had several shoots with in the past. I also brought my new DSLR along to try a few self-portraits, and get some pointers from somebody way more experienced. I hope you enjoy our outcome, and the quotes I found to go with these favorite shots.
Self-portrait taken and edited by me. Loved this little bridge at Caledonia State Park!
Another Self-portrait by me 🙂
Photography: Robert Shatzer
Another favorite from Mr. Robert Shatzer. I look fierce! By the way, the dress is from Livingsocial! You never know what you might find, and I was very surprised to find a dress that had a perfect fit for slimmer girls! I loved it so much I ordered another in blue! Oh, and it HAS POCKETS. A perfect maxi for Spring and Summer!
Love this quote! I like to dabble in a little bit of everything and anything especially if it takes creativity to do. If you would like to see what else I have been working on with photography, you can read through the previous posts of Photography & Inspiration Month:

The place and the lighting are just beautiful! Your red dress looks elegant, and the photographer was able to capture all different moods.
Thank you! It helps when you are super comfortable after working with the same person a few times.
