Photos by the Pond

I am stepping into the world of fashion photography. Models. Fancy clothing. Gorgeous locations. Very exciting! Asheville has a growing fashion scene that welcomes collaboration and creativity. For this shoot, I worked with a model who is also just joining the party. Molly is a gorgeous young model with tons of potential. I'm sure I'll be seeing many more great shoots from her in the future.

For this shoot, we went to a great spot hidden in plain view. Near the East Asheville dog park, there is a small pond. We ventured down the path around it and found quite a few great locations with amazing lighting. I lucked into this dress at Twice Round Vintage on Haywood Road. It was a bit tattered, but as with many things, that made me love it all the more.

 In spring of youth it was my lot
       To haunt of the wide world a spot
       The which I could not love the less-
       So lovely was the loneliness
       Of a wild lake, with black rock bound,
       And the tall pines that towered around.

-Edgar Allen Poe
