Paris-Inspired Springtime Portraits

Joyce - by Sarah Bradshaw Photography_0016

One of my goals for this year was to spend a good bit of time this year pushing myself creatively. One of the ways I’m doing this is crafting shoots just for myself, for no other reason than that I want to shoot them. You’ve seen a couple of them already (here and here)… and today I’m happy to showcase one more!

Joyce is a friend of mine with a lovely pixie-cut, French-inspired style, and who spent time living in Paris in college. I’ve wanted to do a modern French-inspired shoot of her for awhile, and a few weeks back we made it happen. Isn’t she darling??
