Since sharing her portraits on social media, Kirby has been designated the "Snow Queen" and I whole-heartedly agree! We don't get much snow or winter weather here in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Even being from Colorado, I'm okay with that - I am SO not one for cold. When it does snow, though, especially that soft, fluffy, perfect snow I am always inspired to take snow portraits (despite the frigid temperatures).
When I saw those big white flakes from the coziness of my bedroom window, I knew I had to take advantage. This is the second (pretty) snow of the year - that RARELY happens here in the south - and I didn't want to waste it.
I quickly rummaged through my wardrobe collection and, although most of my collection is at the studio, I found an outfit that would work splendidly. I immediately reached out to Kirby, the salon owner of Hair By Kirby based out of Jasper & Fern, and asked if she would be my model. We talked vision, styling and then jumped on the session.
Man, I am stoked with how these turned out! I can definitely say these are bucket list photographs for me.
A big thanks to Kirby for being the biggest reason this session happened!
