I was extremely happy with how this session went with Brie. We started the shoot off with walking around Trustom Pond in South Kingstown, Rhode Island. I heard of this location about a week before the shoot and it was a fun challenge to try to use the space creatively.
The highlight of our time together was when Brie and I took our shoot to a small local beach that we were both familiar with. The little hideaway was lightly trafficked even with it being a gorgeous day out, which gave us a little more room to try out ideas. As the sun set we got more comfortable working together and started getting more creative. I had her put on one of my favorite dresses I own and decided to just play around in the water. This part of the shoot is what will always stay stick out in my brain because it was truly the both of us working together and having our own singular ideas come together to make the most out of the experience, and I could not be more happy with the outcome.

This shoot was a perfect reminder that you can find beauty right down the street. I’ve lived in Rhode Island for the entirety of my twenty-one years and I never found the time to visit The Fantastic Umbrella Factory in Charlestown. My good friend and model of the day, Abbey Duhamel, talked highly of this little wonderland.
We started our adventure just before golden hour and the soft light complimented the farmyard beautifully. This Rhode Island landmark is nothing short of it’s name with its amazing walkways decorated with foliage, abstract sculptures, and side attractions of various welcoming animals. Abbey and I had so much fun exploring this tucked away treasure and also learned ostriches make very intimating noises (maybe don’t get too close to those.)
