Born From the Waves
This portrait is Inspired by Sandro Botticelli's painting, "The Birth of Venus". This was one of the first interpretations of a Goddess I saw when I was a child, and it left a big impression on me and sparked my interest in mythology.
When I thought about who could model Venus, my friend Vanessa immediately came to mind. Vanessa is also a talented seamstress and created the costume for our shoot. I flew out to LA and we met up for a day of photo fun and seal rescuing.
