Esther Gallarday Photography
I’m a photographer specializing in senior and family photography in the Northwest Indiana & Chicago, Illinois area. It’s my desire to show my clients how I see the world through my lens and how beautiful and amazing they are!
I usually shoot seniors or families during the year, and decided to do something a little different with the down time I have before Spring comes. We have had such beautiful weather for it to be January, and I had to take advantage of that soft winter sunshine. I had several ideas floating around, and finally one started taking shape. I dreamt and imagined a demure lady drinking tea and reading about of far off places. I read the quote: “I’m in love with places I’ve never been, and people I’ve never met.” and decided that I was going to take that idea and run with it.
Makeup artist Lety Benitez (facebook.com/eyecandyglammakeup) pulled the whole shoot together with the vintage-inspired look she gave the gorgeous model, Ashley.
With perfect light and a soft breeze at the end of a dark, cloudy day, this shoot was meant to be. I think someone was smiling down on me to give me 45 degree weather in January. I hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
