After taking a nice long break in January to recover and re-cooperate from the busy holiday season, I was thrilled to be back at in Ridgewood photo studio to photograph this sweet girl who is an ambassador for the Free2Luv #FriendsDontLetFriendsBully anti-bullying campaign. Free2Luv is a great non-profit organization and their goal is celebrate individuality and quality and stand up to bullying through art and creativity. It is all about spreading kindness, acceptance and love – and what can be better than that?!
Madeleine is a talented young actress (she appeared on Broadway and on the small screen!) and was such a pleasure to photograph. Her Mom brought a whole lot of outfits to the shoot – think tutus, funky hats, sparky dresses, colorful converse sneakers, glittery headbands, fake furs and of course some pretty cool Free2Luv apparel! I cannot even say how much I loved looking through all these goodies and coming up with funky and fun outfits for Madeleine to wear! Originally we thought about doing the whole photoshoot in the studio but the weather was nice and I suggested that we go outside for a change of scenery. There is a beautiful blue door across the street from my studio and it provides a cool backdrop for portraits – which is exactly what we needed for this session!
