This beautiful black and white session is so special to me, because the young lady in those pictures is my 17 year old niece, Ola. She came to visit us for the summer all the way from Poland. Having her with us for extended period of time allowed me to take time to prepare for a few photo shoots. Yes, a few! I had to take advantage of having a personal model in the house and capturing as much of her a I can, because I know her parents will appreciate having these pictures.
We started off with the makeover by Alex (Bella Ti Artistry), who actually joined us for the first part of the day and was incredibly helpful (as she always is!) fanning some air our direction to give us a bit of air flow on this super hot FL morning. Thank you, Alex!!
Ola's mother asked for some black and white portraits of Ola, so she could print them in large format and hang them on the walls of her new hair salon in Poland. Of course, we made it a bit more artsy with a black couture gown.
This is just one of a few different looks for Ola. More to come!
