Little Bohemian | Ohio Child Portraits

This session with K. inspired a different retouching style than I normally create. Her sweet, soft personality deserved to be presented in just that way, so I created a Lightroom preset that is reminiscent of 1970's tones with allover soft contrasts. 

When I have narrowed down a session to the best images, I consider the final presentation as a whole, and what tones would best complement the overall feel. With this Ohio portrait session, I admit so many styles complemented the gorgeous light and her darling expressions. But I finally settled on these muted, retro tones to really pull together the bohemian theme her Mother and I styled. 

I was able to create the beautiful flower crown by weaving Hydrangeas into a hand-sewn headband. It looked perfect with K's curls in the golden sun! Hope you enjoy these images :)
