You know what my most essential photography tool is? It’s not my camera or my tripod–it’s my purse! I use my purses as stand-ins so I can focus before I run to pose. I can’t tell you how many times people have come across my solitary bag, picked it up, and started looking for its owner–or worse–before I run up from behind my camera screeching that it’s mine. (Don’t worry–I never bring anything valuable with me to shoots!)
No bag has done more duty than this green one that I got from ModCloth years ago. It’s the perfect color and size to go with nearly any outfit, and I don’t know what I’d do without it! Here are some of the ways I’ve styled it in the last year.
