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 🙂

Lingerie Shoots

Lingerie shoots are one of my most requested shoots.  Sometimes it’s as a gift to the models significant other, but more often than not, it’s just for her, to make her feel sexy and confident!  Curious?  Give it a try…you too, gentlemen!

One crazy story:  I was at a womans house as she wanted to surprise her husband with some pin up style lingerie photos.  She looked great, but was nervous, which is entirely normal at the beginning.  The moment she got the courage to ditch the robe?  Ding Dong!  It was the Jehova’s Witnesses.  She clutched her robe tight and explained that, thank you, she already has that book while I chased the dog, who of course managed to bolt the second she opened the door.  I’m happy to report that the shoot still went well after that!
