Crescent Hill Reservoir Portraits | Alexis

“She belonged to a different age, but being so entire, so complete, would always stand up on the horizon, stone-white, eminent, like a lighthouse marking some past stage on this adventurous, long, long voyage, this interminable --- this interminable life.”

― Virginia Woolf⁣

I’ve always had a fascination with the gorgeous Gothic architecture at Crescent Hill Reservoir, and as a Louisville photographer, that meant it was on my “portrait photo location bucket list”. Thankfully this winter, model Alexis Bode agreed to do a photoshoot there with me. We both felt very inspired by the Brontës and 19th-century literature on that gloomy day by the reservoir. Gothic novel/book covers/Sargent painting vibes, for sure.

“It is far harder to kill a phantom than a reality.”

Autumn Louisville Graduation Portraits | Lexina

I am so excited to share these portraits I took of Lexina for her graduation from the University of Louisville! We had a blast at UofL campus taking some portraits in her cap and gown, popping champagne (to various degrees of success), followed by some fun photos in St. Matthews to take advantage of the autumn leaves! One of the best things about being a Louisville photographer is the variety the city offers in terms of locations to photograph! When we saw the gorgeous golden yellow ginkgo tree and vibrant violet Japanese maple trees we knew we had to use them in these portraits!
