Here’s a shoot that I’ve been wanting to do since last Summer, and didn’t get around to it until this August. 🙂 I took a few of my favorite mermaid-esque models, along with my creative partner-in-crime Sarah Crain, to the beach at Hueston Woods. We layered a literal ton of shiny tulle and netting on our models to create a beautiful tail.

Last June, my husband and I packed up for a destination wedding in Orange Beach, AL, along with Gulf Shores. Stacey and Teddy were fantastic clients and gracious host, saving a portion of their large condo for us and offering it for the entire week. My husband officiated this beautiful beach wedding, and of course I photographed 🙂 below are some highlights from this perfect day!
After playing with my 35mm with Madeline, I was definitely down to do it again… I also didn’t hit all the spots around the area that I wanted to. I wandered the suburbs around my house once again with Stacey (Ai Tenshi Misha) — her boyfriend came along to assist. It was a good day.
I believe I have put my beauty dish to some pretty good use thus far ^_^
I absolutely adore Renaissance art, so I decided to do a photo shoot/project, using harsh lighting, to replicate the chiaroscuro aesthetic of that time. In post processing, I adjusted the colors and smoothed the skin and fabrics strategically to help achieve that look even further.
These shoots were all very short, 10-15 minute shoots against the same black background. I collaborated with each lovely model to envision a unique character for their images. Thank you to all who helped me realize this vision, credited after the jump.
Here are some highlights from a recent senior session I had with Grace. She was an awesome subject, very sweet and always smiling! This session was held at my favorite park 🙂 Pyramid Hill in Hamilton.

I visited Yellow Springs for the first time just a few weeks before this shoot, and knew I had to work with one of my favorite models there. This set with the awesome Jill Liebisch was featured in Beau NU Magazine’s August mini-issue. Hair and makeup by Sarah Crain.
