From Paris France, Meet Alix
Coming from Paris, it seemed natural that Alix would want her individual portrait session in Tokyo to be inspired by fashion photography. Alix was also clear that she was keen on incorporating nature into our shoot. I scouted a location that was secluded enough for Alix to feel comfortable and that would yield the results we desired.
Prior to our shoot time, Alix and I met with makeup artist Rebekah Howard to prepare for the shoot and get Alix all dolled up. From the cafe we walked together to our first location, a quiet spot in some nearby woods. We laughed and enjoyed the fall leaves and lazily shot frames until we had enough material.
From the woods we moved a short way down the road to a field full of dead stalks. I had seen the field a few days before and knew that the crumpled and dried field would be a perfect place for portraits.
At the end of the day, I couldn't have asked for a nicer client and was honored to be Alix's photographer. Of course I was stoked to share the results with a fabulous client! Thanks for a great portrait session Alix!
