The Songbird

Photographer/Editor – Mary Tait
Model – Jessica Davis

This was my first time working with another person on a photoshoot, and I was blessed to work with the lovely Jessica. She is a fellow creative person (like me she loves to work with a bit of everything), though I know her creativity mostly through her singing on the worship team at our church. When I was thinking of how to approach this shoot I asked her about what music was to her. She said it was a way to freely express herself, and I sought to capture that same sense of freedom in these photos. I chose a field where I imagined a bird might be free to fly and sing, but still allowed the freedom to express emotion beyond just joy. I think some people might think of a birdsong is a happy thing, but there are times it can express other emotions as well. It was this vision of the songbird—the bird that sings of all emotions—that inspired this shoot.
