Catching up!

It's been almost two months since I've posted! I have lots to update you on. 
First, I've been busy working two other jobs so my photography had taken a pause for a while. I got a few photo shoots in though!

And now for the BIG NEWS!!! Haley Marie Fine Art Portraits now has a physical location for a home. Yes, that's right, I have a studio now! It became official yesterday, I should be getting the keys soon and then I will start moving my equipment and materials to the space! Once the studio is ready, I will host an open house! There will be headshot mini sessions for a discounted price, wine, snacks, free product vouchers, and contests! I hope you can join us when it's time. If not, you can always book an appointment for your own personalized styled photo shoot! 
Here are a couple photos of the space, it may be small but it is mighty and we will create great things in this space! 

Spring Equinox

I thought today was an appropriate day to post this set! Merry came to me with the idea to shoot a cute theme that had a spring and warm feel. She had made this adorable umbrella for the shoot and she wore rain boots with her outfit to finish the spring look. It was fantastic! A few days before our shoot, I looked at the weather forecast and turns out our spring shoot was being taken over by snow. It snowed a few inches that weekend but we decided to still try to get our spring look. It was a little cold and windy, but it went great and we had lots of fun talking and laughing with each other. We did accomplish what we were going for with our Spring theme, so take a look below, close your eyes, and imagine that there isn't snow on the ground in mid April here in Iowa right now. 

 

Sugar Rush

The first time I met Eva Von Rose, she had been looking for a photographer to shoot an idea she had, which was sprinkles. Sprinkles in a bath tub. I had done one milk bath shoot before so I was up for trying another shoot in the bath tub. 
During planning, we also gained ourselves a creative director, Nicholas Stark. We planned the look we wanted and how many sprinkles we might need. She purchased the sprinkles and a few days later, I met them both for the first time at my house. That's a great way to meet people right, in your bathroom with a huge soft box? Turned out, we all got along great! Eva and Nick had previously met before. To this day we are all great friends and have done a couple other shoots together, we definitely need to plan another one soon. 

Here are some photos from the day, behind the scenes, the final shots, and our tear sheets from both magazines.
