Dani Tietjen is a blogger, author, mother, wife, inspirational speaker, and missionary. She travels all over the US speaking to youth and church groups about love, mercy and identity. Her blog is full of anecdotes about her life and she has such a generous heart. She also really loves dressing up…and twirling…and reading…and laughing…and we did pretty much all of these things for her website photoshoot yesterday.
Dani came up with a great theme of creating a pretty little reading nook in the woods. When she was done creating the set, I immediately thought of the word “gypsy”. And that word fits her, she is creative, grows a lot of her own food, creates all kinds of art, has a homespun natural twist to her designs, and likes a slightly weathered well worn look to her furniture. She did a fantastic job, and I was so excited to photograph all of the details!
She hired Brett Dorrian to come and doll her up, and we had a fun time in my studio getting ready. She did an amazing job on Dani, emphasizing her gorgeous eyes and giving her hair lots of texture and interest. Then Dani got into her SKIRT. Holy moley, you’ll just have to look at the pictures…
At the end of the shoot, I asked her to just twirl and have fun in her gorgeous skirt, and I love the results =)
What a fantastic session! Dani, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! Thank you for letting me be a part of this creative process!
