Old Fashioned

This past weekend I worked a little more on my folio for the website with a friend, Eva Von Rose. We always have fun when we shoot! You might recognize her from her vibrant pink hair and our Sugar Rush photo shoot. These new images are all in black and white, so no bright pink in this set! We were wanting to channel her inner beauty of the past and old Hollywood. It's a perfect fit for what I'm going for and it's wonderful for my portfolio! We have also submitted our images to a small independent magazine. Wish us luck! 

 

Sunshine

It was a little bit sunny out some today but still a little cold. Tomorrow there is even snow in the forecast, then it'll start to get warmer. In the mean time, I took some macro shots of flowers we have in the house. I haven't taken macro flower photos in so long, it was nice shooting them again! 

 


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.
