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! 

Here are a few images from recent shoots!

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! 

"Once A Queen" Publication

A few weeks ago I teamed up with another photographer, a new hair and makeup artist, a new wardrobe stylist, another fellow photographer that made a beautiful tulle skirt, and a model I'd previously worked with before. Together, we came up with an idea to create a look that resembled Marie Antoinette and the time period. 

Rebekah fluffed up Sydney's hair, powdered her face and we were ready for the wardrobe. Our first look was a gown with floral design (brought to the shoot by Rebekah), our second look was a corset and a more straight styled skirt with some fluff in the back. Our third look, we took away the skirt and added a more full tulle look to go with the corset. 

We all had so much fun shooting, eating pizza, and just hanging out with one another gossiping. This is one of the best teams I've worked with so far in my editorial journey. Sydney makes photographing so simple, Rebekah had fabulous idea that went with the time period, Preston brought two beautiful backdrops that he let me photograph on as well, and Angie, Sydney's mother, she is the heart and soul of the shoot. She plans, finds wardrobe, and contributes ideas. We deemed her mother to us all during the shoot! 
Thank you all for a fantastic day. 

We also were published in a small independent magazine, Gilded Magazine, in their June issue. The theme they had for the month was 'Pink'. 

Here are the finished images and our magazine tear sheets!

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! 

 

A Few Crazy Days!

These past couple of weeks have been so busy for me! There were a couple group shoots with other area photographers. One was at an abandoned high school and one was at an old abandoned highway with a couple bridges near a river! It can't get more all over the place than that. 

Shoot #1: APOLLO CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL -- BURLINGTON, IOWA (abandoned location) 

Models: Brenna Young, Erica Ly, Jesse Hagerman, Nikki Buns, Nikki Londene, Stephanie Mellecker

 

Shoot #2: ABANDONED HIGHWAY OFF THE IOWA RIVER 

Models: Deonna Troxel, Nikki Buns 

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.

It's Wednesday, Wednesday

Here is a little throwback to October for you Wednesday viewing. 

The theme we did for this shoot was Wednesday Addams and since today is Wednesday, I thought it was the perfect time to post this throwback, you know, instead of Thursday!

Editorials

Welcome to Spring, or is it? It sure doesn't feel like Spring outside yet or quite look like Spring either. 
 

Today this post is going to be about my other work. Along with glamour photography, I also photograph editorials for small Indie magazines with up and coming models in my area. Every once in a while I will post a past or recent shoot. Here are a couple images from one on my favorite shoots from the end of this past summer/early fall.
