Field of Dreams –
I had the amazing opportunity to work with one of Birmingham’s greatest fashion photographers, Brad Lovell. We started this shoot in another outfit/location but those will come in the next post. Here I’m wearing this fantastic Show Me Your Mumu Emoji Salsa Skirt in the Floating Floral pattern, which is absolutely gorgeous!

I wanted to give you some background on this amazing photographer, Brad. He’s been taking pictures since he was a child and with help and instruction from his mother he learned to shoot analog at an early age. He’s always had a passion for photography but didn’t start taking it seriously until about five years ago. He started off shooting landscape and studying composition. He then started urban exploring and really got into that for a couple years until he realized something was missing. He started looking back at all these wonderful photos but realized something was missing. And then it hit him, the human element. People fascinate him and after that realization he started booking clients immediately. He studied posture, lighting and even sculpture. Brad had some help along the way from artist friends and even other photographers. Now he’s at a point where even portraits aren’t enough, he wants fantastic portraits, portraits that say something. Brad wants to take photos that tell a story or use an expression that set a mood, much like the fashion spreads myself and my readers all see in our favorite magazines. Brad Lovell always said that “I am only limited by my imagination and I truly believe that.” This is one amazing photographer that I truly believe is going places and who knows, maybe one day we’ll see his shots in Vogue, Marie Claire or InStyle.
p.s. Stayed tuned for the next post with more shots by Brad Lovell!
