When Jessica, owner of Root: Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies, approached me about doing portraits to complement the book she’s been working on about her yoga practice, she was careful to explain that she didn’t want the same old “doing yoga in the woods” photos, she wanted something more evocative. The images she had in mind had more to do with the emotions and philosophy of her practice, and she and I spent quite a bit of time brainstorming wardrobe, styling and locations so we could accomplish what she wanted. We actually took these in April (I’m a little behind on sharing them, having spent most of my summer and fall working on weddings). I think these images are beautiful! We were both very happy with the results and will be continuing her project with another photo shoot soon!
Long time client Heather, who lives in Arizona, commissioned me to fly to southern California to do three shoots in one: family portraits, senior portraits for her oldest son, and some very special fashion portraits of just her wearing a fabulous, slinky red gown. This, ladies, is my forté: photographing women beautifully. We wandered up and down La Jolla Cove as the waves crashed, and I got some simply amazing pictures of her. If you would like to dress up and create some incredible portraits like these, for no other reason than you’re gorgeous and you deserve to feel beautiful, contact me for a consultation.
I took these portraits of Marian over a year ago and neglected to share them until now. Shame on me, because look how gorgeous she is! And what are fashion portraits, you ask? They’re fabulous pictures of you looking dressy and beautiful, for any reason or no reason at all. You don’t have to be a high school senior to get special pictures done — you deserve amazing portraits of yourself at any age!
I recently had the great pleasure of photographing the fabulous Michelle Baldwin, a.k.a. Vivienne VaVoom! I hand picked a number of perfect locations for this retro photo shoot, and Michelle has a huge wardrobe that fits the era (both vintage and retro-styled clothing). Bud’s Muffler loaned me their 1955 Chevy pickup, and Russ, who owns the alternator repair shop, also let me use his gorgeous ’56 Corvette. All in all it was a fabulous, fun photo shoot and I love the results!
I’ve been dying to share these portraits of Tara! We took them on Monday at my studio and it was so much fun! Isn’t she gorgeous? Ladies, it’s my mission in life to make you feel beautiful in pictures. If you would like exquisite studio portraits like Tara’s, call me!
