Behind the scenes | Portraits The West Parlor Photo Shoot
With a great team and the perfect location, we worked together to create a photoshoot, "The West Parlor".
I worked with my stylist, Emily Goodin of Effortless Style, and she pulled off everyday items and felt like they fit the space. An emerald green dress was crucial for the vision I had in my head, and Emily crushed it with this dress from The Showroom Nashville for Bree. And the bow tie 'Hollywood' by Clifton & Leopold completed Jacob's look.

Get inspiration from other top photographers and learn about their setups and process. Take a look behind the scenes movie.
For this photoshoot, I am using two strobes in total, my favorite 86" PLM Umbrella Silver with a front diffuser. This gives a soft light wrapping effect around both my models. The other flash is used as a fill light.
I use natural window light in the second setup, which gives a whole different atmosphere to the photos.
