Rain Drops on Roses: A Photoshoot

Posted on

A few weeks ago, I spent a cool, rainy afternoon modeling for photos taken by friend and photographer Marina, the talented artist behind Marina Claire & Co.

I received my photos two nights ago and, since that moment, have been bubbling with excitement to write this post- I couldn’t wait to share with you friends the beautiful pieces of art Marina created and captured!

We began inside my home, taking some “lifestyle” shots for upcoming posts and future ideas. I’m not featuring those images here, just yet, but if you check back often, likely you’ll see some new photos floating around the blog! I was simply amazed at how each and every picture turned out; Marina made the interior of my seemingly not-so-photogenic home look like a professional photo shoot backdrop. I’m telling you: she can do wonders behind a camera!

Oh, that’s me, spying on my neighbors.

Next, we ventured outside for some moody, fall shots. Again, I reiterate: I am so in love with my photos! Eeek!!

The weather was dry all day- until the moment we went outside to take photos, of course.

I was able to use an umbrella to stay dry, but Marina braved the raindrops in order to ensure some great shots!

We were having so much fun that I could barely hold back my laughter here!

Told you; we were having a lot of fun! (Don’t you just love the raindrops visible in this one?! Feels like the moment was frozen in time.)

I was trying to feign a serious facial expression here… I don’t have a good “poker face”- haha!

The colors of these leaves left me speechless!

It can be difficult to “act natural” in front of the camera, but Marina’s genuine personality and fun energy make you feel so at ease!

I’ve walked through this area of the park countless times, but until these photos I never viewed it as such a serene, picturesque backdrop.
