Wall Image

So, I recently shot this image for wallpaper for the new Marisa Perry Atelier location…I’ve never done wallpaper before so that was challenging and stressful!  The color didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted, but I’ve decided to (ok, fine, TRY to) stop nitpicking and be happy with the experience.  This was just a crappy shot done on my phone…

And this is the one off my camera.  They wanted a sexy pin-up look to show their rings on, and this model, Brittany, was wonderful…she’s a dancer and could hold that pose endlessly while we fussed.

Check out her instagram, lots of amazing shots there!  https://instagram.com/bricavaco/  Makeup and hair was done by Leah Stangas, another fab lady to work with….and here’s a behind the scenes look!

Vintage Glamour

I am one sleepy girl this week…but vintage style always cheers me up.  It’s fun to shoot…in the film days, I used to stain prints with tea and lightly burn the edges to get that look.  Um, away from all the chemicals of course!

I find vintage style to be a great way for first time subjects to play around with the concept of sexy.  It can range from just a hint of leg peeking out from a robe, to quite nude!  Up to you how you want to do it!

Dogs Interrupting Photo Shoots!

Ok, a few entries back, it was all about the cats!  This time, here’s Bella the Boston Terrier wanting her close-up, thank you very much….

Not a fully edited shot since a different one was the winner for the client, but I was entertained by Bella, so here it is.  What you don’t see is me lying on the floor, trying to shoot upwards with Bella licking my face 🙂
