Photoshoot with Birds

Here's the thing: I really love photography and I really, really love animals.  So, when both of them can collide, life is pretty good. 

I had been wanting to shoot with birds for a very long time.  I did a shoot with a snake:

 

And that was when I realized how cool working with animals really is.  Anyway, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and saw @lammergeier studio post these:

 

And so then I got really excited, because Hildi had not only beauty and talent but beautiful birds as well!!! I messaged her literally right away, and we set something up.  I wanted to keep the vibe very 70's inspired.  Hildi is even wearing her Mom's old flare pants from the 70's and a vintage Betsy Johnson dress!  This shoot came together beautifully, and I'm so excited to share these images with you.  

AND for the first time ever I posted a behind the scenes youtube video on this shoot! Please give it some love, and let me know what I can do to make my videos better in the future.

I shot these with a Canon 6D and a Sigma 35 mm 1.4 ART lens.  All photos taken only in natural light. Follow me on instagram @emilymclaughlinphoto to see more of my shoots!
