Portrait shoot for Emily Fletcher Design

Portrait shoot for Emily Fletcher Design

I knew from the outset that this would be a fun shoot. Emily, who’s a freelance graphic designer and artist, was after quite a dark aesthetic, and send a few sample shots where the body nearly blended into the background. Her sample photos included Kate Moss and a beautiful photograph of model Tatjana Patitz taken by Peter Lindbergh. Personally, though, I felt Emily was channeling Angelina Jolie in some of the resulting photos!

(I’m excited to say I’m actually going to hear the amazing Peter Lindbergh speak in September, at the Portrait Masters conference in Phoenix. Can’t wait!)

Many thanks to our mutual friend Catherine Adam for assisting, and to Victoria Faith for the great makeup. Emily is all about keeping it real so these photos are unretouched.
