Background--the story of Eloa
This poem by Alfred de Vigny left a lasting impression on me a few years ago.
According to the myth, Eloa was an angel said to have been born from Jesus's tears as he wept at Lazarus's grave. She descended in hopes of saving Lucifer, but instead, fell in love and went to Hell with him.

More about the background story here: [link]
Please read it; this story is a favorite of mine.

Model: Meghan Mooberry
Styling/make-up/photo by me

Yay for my first legitimate nude! This photo was shot in a secret creek literally 10 minutes behind my boyfriend's house (thanks babez for showing me!). We checked the conditions on Monday, and Tuesday I was lucky enough to have Meghan agree to shoot this with me so last minute! Also, this was my first time shooting with a natural redhead. *so happy* she's such a sweetheart!

I'm definitely proud of this photo. Nice way to kick off my new body of work for 2012!

Also gorgeous but i prefer the horizontal one. I think the model takes up too little space of the picture here and is thus "kind of lost" in all the colours and shapes.

Excellent shot!
Good use of natural light which works great with her red hair.
Nice autumnal colors in the back that fit to her haircolor.
The model makes a great job too, simple and beautiful pose and
a wonderful expression.
Well done =)

And what a great first nude! The autumn backdrop is a great complement to her hair and the rippled reflection holds a symbolic depth hinted in the story (your summary of it, at least). Yay for new developments in 2012. :aww:

Thanks so much! I do hope to delve deeper in the world of nude photographs. I've been inspired by so many nude images in 2011 that I do hope to add some to my portfolio!
