Two things about this shoot scared me: 1. I worked with a new photographer. 2. Ponchos seemed hard as hell to pull off. (be sure to get the 40% off code by reading on!)
The photographer's name is Kiely and she has a lifestyle blog of her own! It is always scary getting comfortable with a new photographer. You have to get into the groove, remembering which angles work best, and at the same time, break down any walls of insecurity. Kiely was awesome! She gave direction when needed (and wasn't over-the-top or rude) and also built my confidence saying when poses looked good, or even complimenting me! I found her easy to work with, and was even happier when the photos came back to me. She is so sweet and would definitely work well with anyone.
The poncho is from BCBGeneration. According to Joyce Azria, BCBGeneration is a contemporary brand made for the youthful and spontaneous spirit. This poncho fits perfectly and feels incredibly soft. It also seemed to work right in with my style of dress. I was surprised it was so easy to style! You can find similar ponchos from BCBGeneration here.
