There is a true art in styling a moving and emotional photograph, and Ginny Au has a natural gift for creating touching images alongside some of the world’s most talented photographers. In order to share her gift, Ginny has started offering one-on-one sessions and recently helped Lesley Lau bring a vision to life in the romantic and lush woods of Birmingham, Alabama.
More from Lesley Lau on her inspiration for her session with Ginny:
The inspiration for this shoot was born out of the serenity of the creek and the warmth of the late afternoon light as it disperses through the lush canopy of trees. The girl is searching for something in the elements, unknown to her and the observer – tracing the aged patterns of the tree bark and exploring the cool flow of the creek’s waters.
Details were kept to a minimum to convey the purity of her search, with the surrounding foliage used as her mask to provide a sense of protection.
