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.

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:
