[dropcap]A[/dropcap] few weeks ago I got a call from June. June is a photographer who I came to learn is 20 years old. (June forgive me I had to) At 20 I was in college drinking and trying to figure out my life, I digress. We talked about this project she wanted to do and I was sold. I did not do my usual scrutiny of previous work done to see if it worth it (a habit of mine) I just went with it. She was very passionate explaining what her vision and was very precise about it.
What is “A New Elegance”?
Rediscovering the beauty within. The essence of a woman can be expressed from within her heart and shown outward through the beauty of an image. I got the beautiful Nancie Mwai to benchmark my Glam project. Defining her essence as a glamorous woman. – June
This project could not have been possible without the efforts of stylist Brian Babu and makeup artist Bubbles of Lankara brides. Honestly, when Babu told me to wear this dress, I thought it had a grandma vibe to it. After wearing it I was in love and it worked perfectly with the mood we had in mind.
We shot the whole project at Karura Forest and I’m happy about the outcome considering my first experience with the forest was not the best when I did shots for my blue dress. I can’t wait to share the rest of the work we did with the awesome team.
