Mothwing Photography; Lexington, KentuckY

All photos by Lexington, Kentucky photographer, Ayna Lorenzo (mothwingphoto.com). Contact her for a portrait session! Also, check her out as a model in the blogpost before this. 

A Monday evening in Lexington, KY. Golden Hour. Met up with sunny, stunner Ayna. She put on orange lipstick. We walked together to the BB&T building for it's reflective magic. Took turns in front and behind the camera.  September 2014 was the last time I was in front of a camera like this. She directed me. Made me comfy. Made me feel glamourous. I'm always down to play dress up & be ostentatious (dress and ring from Fox House Vintage).

Rooftop Photoshoot Duel

Almost a month ago, I dropped by Tiffany's apartment for a spontaneous visit, as we hadn't seen each other in nearly 2 months-- It's crazy that two friends can live in the same "small" town, share similar routes and coordinates of interest, yet not see each other without making concerted effort. Anyway, I stopped by adorable abode and ended up waking her from a cat nap (sorry Tiffany!). We talked for a while, sharing adventures while we sat opposite of each other on her mirroring couches.

It just so happened that the same day, I was finishing up the Urban Outfitters guide to Lexington (see my post here or their post here), and I was needing some all-encompassing photos that represented the city. Tiffany has the perfect rooftop view with easy access that looks out over the charming downtown and "skyline". At the end of conversing, I hopped out to snap a few pics, while she stayed cozy, wrapped up on the couch. However, after snapping a few of the city from the invigorating viewpoint, I heard her sneak out onto the roof, and she started photographing me, photographing the city (it should be noted that I love anything META, or any subject teetering on a mise en abyme...

...I continued photographing Lexington, but for a moment, I turned the camera on Tiffany for a Rooftop Duel to capture her in her comfy jammies: something that's a rarity for the stunning fashion forward lady of Lexington [check out her Instagram (@tifforelie) and you'll know what I mean]. So, I relished seeing her in her most comfortable and found her to be just as striking and adorable. To refer back to the title of this blog, if this were, in fact, a Rooftop Photoshoot Duel, Tiffany would have definitely won the battle for all sorts of reasons. As you can see from above, she's such a talented photographer. Nevertheless, here are the few shots I managed to get of Tiffany. Also, I'm including some of the pictures of the city (the photos that I took while Tiffany was photographing me taking those photos --mise en abyme of sorts).
