Inspiration in Plainfield, Illinois
Inspiration can be a funny, yet elusive thing. You dont choose what inspires you, it just takes hold of your soul and your mind starts racing. For me it was red lipstick.
My husband is a partner in the coolest new, restaurant in town and I have the pleasure of hosting on Friday nights with him. As I walked in last Friday night, there was my inspiration. It came in the form of two, red matte lips and pig tail dreads at the hostess stand. Cody, who also hostesses at Sovereign, is the most gorgeous girl inside and out. She’s fun, laid back and has the most beautiful soul. I could not wait to photograph her.
Cody and I met on a cold, Saturday morning in downtown Plainfield, Illinois with her wardrobe in tow. She worked the model poses as if she had been doing them all her life and my camera loved her. It was the most fun I have had in a long time. I am extremely proud of how this images turned out, like a movie playing my visions right in front of me.

Thank you Cody for the inspiration and the fun! I cannot wait to do another shoot with you in Spring.
