We had extra members of the team capturing Ariana’s momentous photoshoot. The very talented duo from Motion Lighthouse, Skye and Jonathan, were recording all the behind the scenes magic for a promotional video for us. Now I can’t say ALL the moments were magical. An intense allergic sneezing fit came upon me while photographing Ari in the tall grasses. And since she was recovering from hip surgery weeks prior to the shoot, walking wasn’t exactly painless for her. Plus the air was unseasonably cooler for a June day, so those water shots were especially freezing.
Though you would have never known looking at her pictures. Ari was absolutely committed to getting these photos to perfection! We couldn’t have asked for more from a model! Generally, Ariana’s already a natural beauty, and the camera just loves her. Combine that with the beautiful scenery, and the photoshoot was pure magic, or rather, a divine experience! The proof is in the photos below. 😉
But before you scroll, a special thanks to our stylists and team for making this happen!
