"Southern Beauty" is a fashion portrait series showing off why I find the south to be so beautiful. Look around and the landscapes have a distinct feel down in the south. The beautiful southern light can allow for a glowing look. As a portrait photographer from Columbus, Ohio I am used to the winter days being dark and dreary. Living in the south, during my college career, I found a new love for winter. The sun is almost always shining and there is so much beauty to share looking out at the vast landscapes I was lucky enough to see everyday.
I had each subject pick a couple outfits from their own modern look and incorporate them into the landscapes, allowing the images to feel cohesive. This series wasn’t just about the beautiful landscapes or the fashion stated models but it was about allowing them to find their place and where they belonged amongst the location I picked for them.
