Sydni and the 4 Seasons

My beautiful model/friend/creative collaborator/photography assistant/all around awesome girl, Sydni, and I have decided to shoot 4 portraits depicting the 4 seasons; Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer. We began this project back in the fall of 2014 and have been battling wind, snow, allergies, dirt, and bitter cold ever since. However, the best part about working with Sydni is that she is ALWAYS in it for the shot and will fight the elements until we get the perfect photo !

Besides the fact that I am wildly happy with how the photos have been going (we have completed 3/4 so far), it is CRAZY to see how much both Syndi and I have changed over just a few short months.

Sydni went from long hair to short hair and has matured into a beautiful young woman !!!! Her posing has gotten more natural and her expressions seems to light up all over her face. She is an amazingly talented woman and I am SO happy and lucky to have her as a model and a friend.

As for me, I am astounded to see how my editing style has changed. I’ve gone through a lot of experimental editing techniques, but I finally feel like I am coming into my own. This last portrait with Sydni (Spring) really took me by surprise. I’ve always loved portraiture, but this photo showed me that portraiture truly is my forte. I absolutely love it and can’t wait to shoot our last¬†portrait; Summer.
