annie | autumnal elegance

well, long time no see on the blog here. it’s been just about two years since I’ve made a post (oops.. :D), I’m not quite sure how time slips by so fast but I’d like to try to get this rolling again and start posting more often. I have a very strong tendency to be a perfectionist in most everything that I do, it’s very all or nothing with me a lot of the time.. so I guess these past two years on this blog have been the “nothing” version of that haha.
but I’m feeling incredibly inspired and renewed as I’ve gone through a lot of positive shifts in my life since then, so I want to start sharing more with you all again. without further ado..
a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful woman below named annie, she contacted me wanting to get some new creative headshots and photos for her acting career. I love working with fellow creatives, or people that just want to make art together. annie gives off such a classic victorian vibe in these photos, especially with her lovely porcelain skin. such a beauty <3autumnal victorian portrait of annie finnerty by savannah daras in portland maine

vintage flowers | photoshoot

She walks in beauty, like the night. Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!
- Lord Byron

regent’s park | london

On Friday Davina and I met up with Christine, a fellow artist and new friend, so that we could adventure around the city and take photos. We went to Regent’s Park, which Davina and I had gone by previously but didn’t really go in to explore. It was so magical; filled with flower gardens, archways, people scattered everywhere picnicking, sunbathing, and enjoying one another’s company. We all had such a lovely day filled with instant bonding, laughter, delicious food, and discussing our love for offensive humour. It’s such an amazing feeling discovering fellow creatives that you just immediately share a connection with.
