Best friends, creative minds, and good cameras. This is what today’s shoot consisted of. People think that all photoshoots need to be planned in advance and be the most professional, however, not all of them need to be. Emily and I choose to text each other the night before or even hours before a spontaneous shoot. All you need is a camera, a friend, and a good attitude.
For this shoot, I headed up to Emily’s house where there is lots of land and trees. This made for the perfect golden hour shoot with vibrant colors of yellow and green. I decided to bring two outfits because you never know what you’re feeling in that moment or what will look the best in that area. The first outfit consisted of black booties, black high wasted jeans, and a simple, beige, off-the-should top. The second outfit was a floor length cream dress that had a low cut v-neck, color, and sleeves with cuts in the shoulder (as you can see from above) that I bought on clearance at Ohh La La, a local boutique store in Clovis, California (https://iloveoohlala.com).
Emily would take photos of me as I ran around the field flipping my dress and posing by trees. And then we would switch. That’s what is cool about shooting with your friends. You get to take photos of each other and it’s a two way deal. You both get nice, professional photos and after you can both edit to your own style.
Em is always my go-to girl for anything I need to create content for and I pay her back by taking photos of her as well. Go grab a camera and shoot with your friends. It doesn’t always have to be super professional so enjoy hanging out and taking photos!
