So … Summer time usually means slower family shoots and what not because y'all are spending time with your families on vacation and just enjoying each other! Perfect! That's what y'all SHOULD be doing! I also get to spend time with my family, but it also means I don't do too many sessions.
Thankfully, I have awesome photographer friends who come up with amazing concept shoots and invite me along! So here are a few of them thus far. I mean, I wouldn't have come up with this gorgeousness on my own in a million years! haha!
First up is the lovely Patricia modeling an awesome dress that William from Darkroom Portraits made.
Will also came up with this concept… Again, I would have never thought this up and it pushed my creativity level to the max and look at the RESULTS!?
The beautiful Nikki worked with us during this shoot! She was an awesome muse.
Then there was this concept. A flaming flower. LOL I'm telling you. I'm around REALLY creative people!! I believe this was Tysha from Tysha Hallman Photos idea.
These girls were fun and BRAVE. :-)
And finally, I was invited to a Spooky Mask concept shoot. Gah! It worked my creativeness BIG time. Y'all know my style … light and fluffy! haha! Well, with Rico from Rico Allende Photography, there is no light and fluffy. It's dark and creepy! ;-) I also love his lighting techniques, so I learned a lot. But of course my favorite pictures were with my style to them and a little Photoshop magic! ;-)
The gorgeous, Breena was up for anything. Including jumping and climb on top of stuff!

And then, just for fun. A little Before and After for you!
***A little something to add: Due to recent events, if you're a model and looking to shoot with me, we need to go over certain stipulations prior to the shoot. I do not like having to figure out last minute, as in 20 mins till shoot time, that I need to find a new model because you canceled.
If you contact me, I will assume that you've been following or at least looked at my work. I am a legit photographer and take my job seriously. I do not get paid for creative model shoots, nor do I pay for models to shoot creatively with me. I do however, put lots of money and time into coming up with these concept shoots (as well as my fellow photographers). We do not appreciate cancelations 20 mins till shoot time because we will not allow husbands or family members to watch.
We have had children and spouses join us, but we had already discussed these stipulations prior to the day of shoot. We choose locations depending on theme as well as safety. I bring my children along, y'all know that. Even if we are going into the middle of nowhere, my children are either on my back or very close to me. You are safe. We are not going to intentionally harm you.
As stated before, we do understand that sometimes spouses (or parents if model under 18) don't feel comfortable having you shoot with us alone. That is fine and understandable. But you cannot come to me 2 hours before shoot and nonchalantly ask for them to tag along. We are professionals and if you are too, you will give us prior notice if you have any stipulations of shooting with me/us. You wouldn't bring this up last minute to a Victoria Secrets photographer 2 hours before, so don't do that to us.
So basically what I'm saying is … if you have stipulations on shooting with me, please be courteous enough to give me fair warning to see if it's workable for me and other photographers. Sometimes we don't want anyone else around because face it … are you REALLY going to give me the face I want if your mother-in-law is standing 5 feet away? Any way. Thank you for looking at my work and I do look forward to working with any of you beautiful (and handsome) models! :-)
