Precious and I have known each other for a while previous to this shoot. She is a friend and a long time client of mine. This was the first nude session that we shot together and it went well. This location is about 30 minutes from our homes in the hills of the Central Valley of California. It is a pretty heavily trafficked area, but when you go at the right time and early enough, it’s easy to get some gorgeous secluded scenes. I prefer natural light and utilizing locations that I’ve shot while scouting for clients. I love all the various textures, colors and light the outdoors provide. It is art in itself. I have been shooting for nearly 20 years. I photograph a variation of subjects, but photographing people is by far my favorite. Especially the female form. It’s a beautiful thing and every female is different. I allow, and prefer, my clients to be comfortable, so I allow them to roam and be free along with a little direction. This helps create natural movement and “poses”. Precious’ session was no different. She is fantastic in front of the camera and only getting better.
