Miss K has more spirit inside her than you can ever imagine. She's so candid and never hesitates to share a kind word. She's touched heart several times, just when I needed it. We have known each other in passing for 15+ years. I'd have shared her photos years ago, but she just got the emotional nudge she needed to sign the model release. As all my clients know, I never share a single image without permission. With permission granted, I couldn't wait to share. So in honor of Flashback Friday, Miss K in 2010.
I freaking loved C. Here's my favorite C story. Because I did this shoot in California, and we were extremely rushed to make the holiday deadline for my album company, I did a Google Hangout to show her the pictures. I'd signed on just to check my settings and an invitation to "hang out" pops up from C. I figured, "No problem," we could do the reveal then and there. We connected and I started showing her pics. After a couple of pics I realized she kept looking over her shoulder. I asked her where she was and she told me she was shopping! She couldn't even wait to get home to see them. She is so beautiful and sweet. C, thank you for allowing me to photograph you and trusting me to advise and style your shoot. You're fabulous!
When K and I met she was barefaced and had some adorable new bangs. She was totally striking. I hadn't met her before and I hadn't even seen a picture on Facebook. My amazingly talented makeup artist Courtney Carmack of Kiss & Makeup gave her a glamorous cat eye and neutral lip. We became friends on Facebook after the shoot and I was blown away that her style was so different from how we did her pictures. K is self-proclaimed not to be much of a lingerie girl, so she asked if we could shoot without. Absolutely. Her timeless look helped create some of my favorite portraits ever. Thank you, K, for letting me photograph you (and for doing all that yoga that made you a great poser).
I LOVE working with clients who are referred by former clients (or current in this case). Miss K, who is one of my repeat customers, sent Miss A. We did her shoot in Sacramento while I was in town. She elected to do her own makeup, which I'm usually very nervous about. This girl didn't even need makeup. Who has skin that luminous without makeup or retouching??? A was so much fun to shoot. She's got all the right curves and knew how to rock them. It was such an honor to shoot another military spouse. She's been with her husband since they were just teens and she is clearly wild about him. Miss A, thank you for trusting me to create these pictures for you and your man.
The fabulously talented Ferrell Hapgood of Feral Fashions created a gorgeous collection of swimwear this past summer. I had the privilege to shoot it with two gorgeous models. It's swimwear, but of course I had to add a little bit of sexy boudoir flare to it. Check out my favorite pics, go to her site and put in your order for a custom bikini. They're amazing. My favorite: the lacy one of course!
