Yelena is a photographer and responsible for capturing other people’s moments, but for the last 7 years, she hasn’t really captured any of her own. So when Yelena called me for a portrait session, she said she was ready to spend some time on the other side of the camera.
The other reason for the shoot was that her mother (as many photographers’ mothers do) was constantly reminding Yelena that she didn’t have any pictures of her daughter. Apparantely, parental pressure works at all ages!
So Yelena and I headed out to Folsom Lake for a shoot rooted in nature, but still inspired by fashion.
It was a little windy, but as you are about to see, Yelena rocked the natural fan like a pro!
Can you believe that someone once told Yelena that she wasn’t photogenic?
Yelena was such a sport…she really glammed it up for the last several shots!
The water was freezing cold. But Yelena looked HOT!!
Hopefully we got a few Mom will like.
Thanks Yelena for bringing your beautiful spirit to this photo shoot. And anyone who tries to say you are not photogenic after looking at this post is completely out of their mind!
