Rachele and I shot together about a month ago. We honestly did not have much of an idea besides what she had seen on my Pinterest and the outfits she had chosen. I met up at her place and we headed to the hills behind her house. I enjoyed spending time with her, getting to know her and photograph her. She brought something new out of me.
As I was going through the photos afterward, I had a really hard time narrowing it down. There were so many photos that told a story. If there's one thing I have learned in photography it's that it's about telling a story, giving something more than a photograph (Samuel Lippke). These photos tell a story of girl who has come into her own. She's not afraid to be her own person and look past the things that long to hold her back. I hope you enjoy these photos.
