Portrait Session with Riftana

A few months ago, I had told Jesse that we really needed to get Riftana into the studio for a portrait session. She has such a great look that I really wanted to add her to our portfolio. However, we were so busy at the time that we didn’t plan anything!

Riftana messaged me a few weeks ago to inform me that she was expecting (twins!) and that sadly, they were moving from the area. With her family growing from 4 to 6, it made it difficult for them to be so far away from family. So, they had to make the move to be closer to them. With this news, we quickly planned a short shoot (she already had all her clothes basically packed away!) to wish her farewell. In the short amount of time we had, we came away with some amazing images.

These portraits were shot using a self-painted canvas Jesse made. We have had a ton of requests on buying one from him, but haven’t had the time to produce more (just yet :)).

The beautiful black dress is from Fashion Nova.


White tee is from Abercrombie.
