With fall finally giving hints of itself in the air, I felt it to be the right time to debut part 1 of my photo series with my new friend, model and student Sabrina Jetli. One gorgeous Manhattan day, we met up at Central Park to create some beautiful looks and images for her portfolio. I came prepped with three outfits I had in mind that represented three very different kinds of styles, but all linked with a similar feel. My vision when it comes to photography always falls back on a dreaminess and free-spirited outlook on life and fashion, but that still feels related on an everyday level. It was so much fun working with Sabrina the day of the shoot and incorporating some of her own pieces to personalize each look. Look # 1: The Explorer. I chose apparel in hues of rusty orange and black, to be broken up with a light, light denim. This girl feels the autumn rush. She takes in her surroundings and incorporates them into her seasonal dressing. She sees everything through her camera lens, so as not to ever forget a moment that inspires her. Her spirit and dreams are multi-dimensional like the layers that she wears, and she isn't afraid to fully embrace more than one thing, because life is too short. She's a little flighty, but still very grounded. As long as she's in balance with nature, she's in her element. I think this is the type of girl I connect with the most. Especially in NYC. It's nice to stop for a while from the craziness and just breathe in something as simple as the first golden leaf of fall.
