Holly by Natalie J Watts for Vecu Spring 2011
With spring comes whimsy because nothing quite heralds the coming for spring for me like whimsical romantic shoots. For one, I am very into wreaths of gigantic flowers; there is something very charming about that May tradition. Highly unpractical, but very lovely to be photographed in. Also, I like how apparent the scalloped details to her dress is. The whorls are elegantly crafted and add a touch of glamour to the shoot. Moreover, I am a big fan of soft filtered lighting which casts a glorious glow on the model; dusk shoots are particularly good for this. Holly appears fey-like in this with her hair beautifully lit in the sunlight. My favorite shots are the close-ups at the end. Simple but very pretty.
