There are many reasons to book a photo session. They usually are to celebrate some big life event and this shoot was no different.
Is it too early to start celebrating Halloween yet? I was going to wait to post these images but the leaves are starting to change….
This weekend I stepped out of my comfort zone and attended a seminar for professional and aspiring makeup artists. I love playing with makeup and have been wearing it since I was 13 years old.
If you can't tell by now I love to do themed sessions. I love putting together concepts and planning everything out. For this shoot Nastacia wanted to do a 1920s flapper girl theme.
Since the last colored smoke session I have been itching to do another one.
Lately I have seen a lot of people commenting on how they are not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. But what if we turned this holiday around?
Collaborating with new models fun as they bring new ideas and concepts to the shoot. I met model Chloe Selene on a Facebook model group a few months ago.
Model: Maya Mikayla Roybal
Sometimes when I talk about boudoir, women give a scrunched up face and comments such as, "Oh no I just couldn't! I need to lose weight, tone up, don't have time, etc." I believe this reaction comes from the media and fashion magazines pushing this "perfect" body image. It is important for me to show just how beautiful each woman is through my photography.
The planning for this shoot started several years ago when I saw other photographers using items from home improvement stores for their shoots. I just love creating unique pieces as well as seeing ordinary objects in a new light.
I am always surprised when I ask models if the have a comp card and get told no or that it is out of date. So what is a comp card? Comp cards (short for composite card) are a marketing tool for both models and actors.
What is a head shot and why would you need one? A head shot simply is an image of a person, usually from the torso up. It does not have to just be of the head and torso however. Depending on what you are using it for and what you are trying to convey it can be simple or creative, head or full body, in a studio or in some type of environment.
