One of my favorites from the last issue of Joie was the photo essay from Amanda Thorson called Awakening.  Amanda is a wedding and portrait photographer from Canberra, Australia and you can see some of her work here.

Lucky for me and for you, Amanda is putting together another photo essay for issue #5 of Joie, which is due out in early September.

Here’s some shots from Awakening….

Also working on the shoot were:

Annika De Hoog, photography assistant

Kelley Reese, model

Lisa Barret, stylist

Tango & James, clothing and accessories

You can see the whole photo essay below in issue #4 of Joie on page #20.

Finally, here’s some behind the scenes shots of Kelley getting styled.
