I am always so humbled when I get contacted by a photographer to be a muse for a day:)
Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to have Amanda Leigh of Bee Leigh Imagery come visit my little studio bungalow and take some gorgeous shots with this incredible morning light streaming in through the palms. We had just 'met' through Instagram (I super love connecting with other creatives btw! @caleighbirdart) and I simply adored Amanda's use of natural lighting to really give her subjects a heavenly vibe.
So when she told me how much she loved my studio tour and felt inspired to shoot me in my Nest I was beside myself with excitement! Yay!! I love to work with photographers and am especially thrilled to work with a female photog that was close to my own age.
It's just so much fun to see yourself through the eyes of another artist! And I am beyond impressed what Amanda was able to do using nothing but natural lighting - no flashes, no reflectors and totally spur-of-the-moment setups.
It's hard to get a good, candid laughing shot!
To my fellow Hawaii residents, Amanda is available to book for elopements and portraits. Seriously go check out how talented she is right here.
