BOTANICAL PORTRAIT SERIES:

POPPY HEAD

One of my favorite parts abut the LKP ROLEmodel Program is that I get to play creatively with my girls. Coming up with new themes and new concepts I want to try each year is challenging and fun and helps to push me to new creative heights.  My Botanical Portrait Series came to me like a lightning strike and is probably my favorite series of images I have ever created.  I wanted to create images that were very painterly, simple, and monochromatic.  I wanted each set of images to have a focus on a botanical element. For Ava's shoot I waned the focus to be on these wonderful dried poppy heads I found, so I had my hair and makeup artist twist Ava's hair into buns around the heads and kept the rest of the look very simple and sweet.  This shoot could not have come out more perfectly and more clearly representing my original vision. I feel so blessed to be able to create work like this for my senior girls and for myself.
