rivers & rompers: fashion editorial with ashley, cocoa, fl

Photographers talk a lot about what makes an image beautiful.  A person wearing size two clothing with perfect hair?  How the light hits the lens?  Perfect exposure or playing by the rules of thirds?  We talk and analyze because we desperately want to recreate beauty in every image, and if we could just figure out that formula…

But beauty could never come from a formula.  Beauty comes from honesty.  Honesty from the subject, owning her emotions, honesty from the photographer, and honesty from the moment itself.  Honesty carries this significance with it that leaves beauty in its wake. 

Ashley owned this honesty and brought such beauty to every image.  She was present, living each moment, and was not afraid to be real in front of the camera.  So lovely…
