Portraits of Singer Jessi Hughes at Fresh Pond, Cambridge

Jessi came to me a couple months ago looking for some creative, relaxed images of herself to accompany the release of her upcoming, self-released gospel record.  We took advantage of Fresh Pond Market’s green garage door and the white-washed brick wall for some more urban shots, and then headed over to Fresh Pond for a more natural, outdoorsy look.  I wanted to push for an editorial/fashion shoot look, especially given this particular client’s creative and stylish personality.

Jessi is as talented as she is beautiful!  At one point, I asked her to sing to me, and it was so lovely, and definitely one of my favorite moments photographing someone (a private performance with the light fading behind the reservoir – so special!).  I can’t wait to see how she puts these images to use, and more importantly, play her music repeatedly as I edit other photos that I hope turn out as well as hers did…
