My daughter just taught me how to play chess last year. Although I'm not very good at it, I can appreciate the strategy and competitive nature of the game. When The Queen's Gambit Netflix series came on I absolutely binge watched it and loved the story and costumes. Fast forward to this year when a girl whom I've shot family photos before was at church and I noticed how she looked just like Anya Taylor-Joy the star of the show! Jacqueline is only 10 but I thought she would be the perfect model for a Queen's Gambit chess inspired photo shoot. I quickly made some calls and put it together literally in hours!! I'm SO thrilled how the photos turned out!
