It was a cold day in Maryland when we shot this. My friends and I were scouring for a location to shoot in to stay warm. I was with my friends Lahcen, Chris, and Leanna when Krista invited us to shoot at her house. Her family's house was large with vintage interior design, mismatched wall paper, and bold patterned furniture. This things matched perfectly with Krista's wardrobe. It was a very simple shoot. Lighting was difficult because all we had to work with was natural light. Luckily the house had plenty of windows, but at times I found myself using a very slow shutter speed. Overall it was a great shoot, and Krista saved us from the cold.
Krista's style is very retro. She embodies the 90's look with bold colors and strong patterns. It also helped that her grandma had a large collection of vintage pieces. The large black fur coat was one of my favorite looks from that day. It made everything look regal and powerful. I also loved the blue suit and pants. I regret not taking more photos of that look.
