February Session Spotlight with Toni Raper

Welcome to another edition of our Monthly Session Spotlight, where we get to have the honor of highlighting one of our many fabulously talented members. This month’s stunning natural light session is from Toni Raper of Maeve Photography. We had to know more about this easy, delightful session and so we asked Toni to give us a behind the scenes of how it came about:

On this particular day I was aching to shoot some film, aching to get out and practice so I would become better at it. I live in a city but just a short drive away there is a clearing…a meadow. I wanted to shoot here because of the simplified background it offered. Being completely inspired by the tulle in my daughters dress, I wanted to create a sense of feeling and movement above all else.

Thank you Toni for letting us share your daughter’s session with us! What a great series to inspire us to get into the “Spring” of things…

Gear: These images were shot on a Contax 645, manually focused and metered with a handheld light meter.
Film: fuji 400H and portra 800. Dev/scan: Image Source
