I got to work with the beautiful Kaozong Thao again!! YAY!!! Instead of being in freezing weather, we got to enjoy the heat in the summer this time and it was lots of fun. She's so incredibly flawless and beautiful, it makes photographing such a breeze.
This was a closed portrait session, it was pretty much just me and her walking and talking while stopping every few steps to snap a few photos. It felt so nice and relaxing after doing so many large(ish) collaborations that includes MUA, Assistant & Model. Not that I don't love that, I do, the crew makes it so easy to prepare for the next look but this shoot was pretty much taking a breather from that process and going back into my roots: just me and the model and making things work.
So one of my buddies suggested I use my primes again. I don't exactly dislike them, my 24-70mm just gives me the ability to shoot portraits and wide without having to bother with changing lens. Super useful go-to lens whenever I'm shooting fine arts or weddings. Going with his suggestion, I shot this whole session with my 85mm and I'm super glad I did. The photos all turned out so beautifully!! I'm super in love with this whole session, scroll down to see more from this shoot.
