These photos were taken on a 40 degree winter day, perfect for a winter photoshoot. The model is wearing a vintage wedding dress I found while thrifting about a year ago. I had to buy it because immediately I pictured it being worn in a wooded, snowy scenery. She looks beautiful in it!
I thoroughly enjoyed taking these photos! I was invited to watch this artist host one of her 20-minute speed painting events! She started with a blank canvas, and exactly 20 minutes later had created a masterpiece as we all watched the process unfold.
The "Golden Hour" is by far one of my favorite times to photograph portraits. This is the time of day when the sun is low and everything is illuminated in warm, golden colors. It is perfect for portraiture because it is soft yet natural lighting and leaves the model looking gorgeous!
Typically my portraits are taken out in nature, as that is where I find most of my inspiration. These photos were taken in a home studio set up in my basement. I do, however, enjoy being able to play with lighting in a controlled space.
With my personal favorite holiday being Halloween, it is an excuse to create dark themed photoshoots for about a month out of the year! These photos were taken at Afton State Park, where we got lots of strange looks.
Here we have some experimental photos with props that I had picked up strictly for photoshoots. In some, the model has herself wrapped up in a green, leafy vine. In others, eerie shadows are cast across the models face, created by hanging an old lacy curtain between trees in the forest.
This is a glamour shoot that I created to make the viewer question the meaning. Sometimes, I want to make people think when they are looking at my photos and art. These photos mix beauty, flowers, smoke, and a ski mask to create something that I find intriguing.
