Kylie Martin Photography
My name is Kylie Martin and I wanted to submit an all film session from the Erich McVey workshop. This session was inspired by the ancient word “Alate” (adj.): having wings; lifted up in flight. Ginny Au used this word to help evoke emotion in our styled sessions out in Elk, California.
I love this session, Alex and Jillian have an undeniable chemistry that you can feel in their images. The secluded woods made the perfect backdrop for the more intimate, soft images, while the cliffs of Elk provided the most beautiful sunset and scenery for the powerful, raw images at the end of the night. I wanted to capture a lot of movement during our time on the cliffs to help bring the word “alate” to life. The images at sunset are raw, strong, and dramatic, but still feel intimate as Alex embraces Jillian to shield her from the wind.
