Over a year ago I was preparing for a session that was styled after “Downton Abbey” but while I was working with a shop choosing clothing for my models I fell in love with all the styles from the 1960′s that the shop owner had.  It was that very day that I decided that I was going to do a styled session that would feature clothing from the 1960′s.  I shared my vision with my friend and model, Jessica and she was 100% on board with me. Having this in the back of my mind I started looking around for a location…at Christmas time my location found me.  My aunt and uncle had purchased, restored and furnished a turn of the century house that was perfect.   I had the clothing, the location and a model, I just needed to make it happen.

On the day of the shoot Jessica & I spent no less than the first 10 minutes wandering around the house admiring all the details that my family had put into preparing it for the shoot.  Not a single detail was overlooked in re-creating what a house may have looked like in the Mid 1960′s.  We were so please with the results, from the styling, the details and the look of the film when it returned from the lab.

One other minor detail – I decided to shoot the session with film.  I knew that the session would be difficult because I was shooting indoors and didn’t know how the film would respond to limited light.  I choose to shoot Fuji Pro400H to give me some versatility in the low light.

This session was a memorable one for me. Why you might say? well this was the first time that I followed my heart completely and fully. Not that I hadn’t given my heart to a session before, but this was different. I allowed my heart to lead me in the direction that I had always felt was right but never followed because I thought the rules were always broken. I wasn’t till few months ago that I realized I would slowly work myself in the direction of freeing myself wholeheartedly. I knew the moment that I did that I would be free to be me.

This session marks a beginning for me, a new way of making art, and I’m so happy to share these with you.’ – Blissful Maven Photography
