Gina & Jislain // Brooklyn, New York

“Initially when I chatted with Gina and Jislain, my mind was overflowing with ideas for a shoot. I looked for an incredible location and tried to source outfits and flowers. They are a beautiful couple, and I wanted to create something that stood out, something unique. Before our session, I attended the Ginny Au Loom Workshop. I was so inspired by this new movement of capturing authentic moments in everyday situations. I knew I had to scratch my grandiose photoshoot and really attempt to find true emotion in a simple scene. 

During pictures they were so comfortable together. I placed them in the kitchen, gave a few instructions, put on some music, and the moments happened. The simplest things like a hug or a whisper where easy to come by.  I love the authenticity that was captured. It felt real, simple, and beautiful.”
