The nature preserve is grey and moody this time of year, without much sun or snow. The grass has gone brown and the bushes have lost all their leaves, leaving spindly branches reaching out toward the sky. There are fewer visitors and those that do come don’t stay for long. Although not everyone thinks this season is beautiful, there is something special about the sparseness.
They are racing against the setting sun, wanting to get the light just right before it is gone completely. It could disappear at any second and leave them in the cold. The light being reflected off the land is playing on the model’s skin, both connecting her to the elements and setting her apart. She is dressed minimally to let the natural elements that surround her create the perfect setting.
We love how the natural backdrop is really shown off in this session, not distracting from the model but absolutely shining through with focus in the photos. There is an organic connectivity between the model and the setting, which adds to the beauty of each. Jeff of Jeff Brummett Visuals knows just how to balance the dynamic between the subject, the space she is inhabiting and the message or mood he wants to convey, which is why we are so happy to feature him here on Boudoir Collective!
