Beauty with Heather Schofield

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of working with Makeup Artist Heather Schofield of HS-Artistry at The SOPHA in Manchester, NH.  We brought in two models neither of us had worked with before and had a blast creating some fun beauty shots!  Lavanyai and Kira were great sports and I am excited to share my favorite shots from the day with both of them!

A Tintype Adventure

At the beginning of August I had the pleasure of taking a workshop at George Eastman House with Mark Osterman, who studies and teaches vintage photographic techniques. My husband and I went to Rochester, NY for 2 days to take the workshop with 8 other participants and learned a bit about the process of Wet Plate Collodion photography, and were given instruction on how to prepare a plate to photograph with as well as how to develop and fix the image. It was such an amazing and inspiring experience and as I now am gathering the materials to add this process to my repertoire, I plan to add the option to have a tintype portrait created during portrait sessions and also as a separate service before the end of December. I am excited to start on the process and can’t wait to share the Fine Art pieces I’m already planning in my head.

Here are a few examples of the images that we created during the workshop!

Amanda’s Dark Art Portrait Session

A few days before Halloween, I had the pleasure and privilege to photograph a portrait session of a young mother and wife who wanted to treat herself to a session for her birthday.  She told me during our consultation that she loved creepy things, halloween and Rob Zombie…. my first thought was, “YES!!!”  My creative tendencies lie in the direction of dark imagery to begin with, and being able to create art like that for a woman who not only appreciates the art, but wants to be a part of the image is my dream!  We decided to work within a few different concepts, and created a broad variety of image styles.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session!









Hair and Make Up was created by Lyndsay Simon, of Makeup By Lyndsay, I created the outfit in the last two images, as well as the train on the black dress in the top two images.  The autumnal headpiece was created by me for my Discord Industries Etsy shop.
