I am so excited to finally be able to post this editorial. It's one of my favorites that I worked on this year! I used Annelise Adams from Emerge Talent, and make-up artist Andie Sleeman ( for this one. I wanted to show a street brawler, but do it in a way that was still beautiful. Annelise was the perfect choice for me, her face is that mix of edgy and beautiful that really brought this to life.  Not to mention how awesome Andie did with the make-up. It all looked so realistic! The editorial was featured in Ellements Magazine in their November issue.( Here is a look at the entire editorial.

I can finally post some work that I was waiting to get word on regarding submission. I'm so impatiant, lol. Abbey, T Rob and I worked on these a while ago. One of the pics was accepted for Styleology ( It was in their pink issue. I finally have a moment to sit and post the images on my blog. Took my mother-in-law and I hours to figure out how to put the background together. I bought some flowers and had to find a way to bunch together in a way that made it look as though she was laying in a ton of flowers. (Esp since I bought no where near a ton. More like 10-15 bunches. lol) Plus it had to photograph well and not look cheesy. Next was the figuring out the lighting. Many hours and countless shifts in the lights later I found a spot that I loved and really like how these came out. I named the editorial 'Blush' because everything had very light pink undertones, and I wanted everything pale. Had a conversation with Abbey during the shoot that gave me an idea to change her hair color. Thanks for that Abbey!  Here are the shots:

Kayla Deconstructed

Today was a really beautiful day! The temperature was great, the lighting perfect on my front porch so I decided to take advantage of it. I had my hubby help me drag my background outside, and we did the entire shoot out there. I wanted simple shots, something reminiscent of old Calvin Klein ads. I went into the shoot planning to change everything in black and white. One look at Kayla in that lighting though and I totally reneged. LOL. The lighting was soft and really gorgeous. As always at the end of the shoot, we took the wardrobe down to the bare minimal and did the last frames super simple. Here are my fav shots.
