Gorgeous Carissa | Portraits | A Farm in Sir Lowrys Pass

I have a BEAUTIFUL girl who you may remember form a previous blog post :) If you haven't had the pleasure of being introduced, this is my cousin/almost-sister, Carissa :) I've been DYING to try out my new Canon 35mm 1.4 and give it a real test run along with some new techniques, so strong-armed this gorgeous chick into spending a few hours in a field in front of my camera :) And SWOOOOON much??? Could she be any more beautiful?? Didn't think so ;) 

And as an aside, the 35mm is as sharp as a ceramic sushi knife, with bokeh like butter, but you'll see that for yourself here ;) As much as my 50mm 1.4 is my baby, this little sneaky piece of loveliness is currently my favorite :)

Here's the 'narrowed' down selection, there are a lot! 

And thank you to the precious Rissa for being the most wonderful muse, for going up on pointe on a gravel road, scrambling through thorn bushes, and being your breathtakingly beautiful self :) I love you a ton xxx

Mmmmph! Sharp as a whip ;)

Pirouette on a gravel road!

Too much gorgeousness!


Waaaaay too much gorge to handle!!!

Swoon :)

Loved playing with the shadows between the grass :)

Such poise :)

Flare + light + beauty = SIGH

Love love LOVED the light for these, just gorgeous!

Give me juxtaposition and I'm a very happy gal indeed!
