Spring is in the Air

So, 2015 is going to be the year that I actually stay on top of posting here… I am terrible at writing regularly, probably because I spent 8 years in high school and college writing and was pretty over it by the time I was done.  But, seeing as that was 15 years ago (holy hell… I can’t believe its …

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 …

Beauty Test with Erika and Makeup by Lyndsay

Erika is a gorgeous girl who came to our rescue last minute, when the model that Lyndsay, from Makeup by Lyndsay and I had planned to work with last week was terribly ill, and we had to track down a model an hour before our shoot.  Erika had never been in front of the camera before, but she did an …

Creating a Classic Romantic Ballerina Tutu!

I’m always looking for new ways to add to the wardrobe I have available for clients to use during our portrait sessions and I’ve been pondering adding a series of tulle skirts to my selection to provide some more fun, romantic options for softer looks.  I finally decided a couple of weeks ago that I was going to create a …

Gold Leaf Makeup with Isabella and Lyndsay

Last Tuesday I had a chance to work with model Isabella Capri and makeup artist Lyndsay Simon once again.  While we started the day not really knowing what direction we were headed in, after a bit of brainstorming, we decided to start with a basic concept of doing something “Metallic.”  Now, I have a habit of collecting random things (some …

Warwick City Park with Andrea C.

Two weeks ago, I finally had my first beach shoot of the season with Andrea C., from Model Club, Inc. and Celsa of Variant Shades Makeup.  It was a blazing 90+ degree day, with no clouds to be seen.  Luckily for us Warwick City Park’s beach had a ton of shade, so we were mostly able to avoid the sun. …

Beauty with Isabella Capri and Lyndsay Simon

This past week I was able to get together with two talented ladies that I had never worked with before.  For this Test shoot, we decided that some straight up beauty head-shots would be most beneficial for everyone’s portfolio and with a rough idea of at least starting the day with a look that was somewhat ethereal, we dug in …

Model Portfolio: Evan

Evan is a new model who used to be one of my employees at Hot Topic– he was always interested in getting into modeling but wasn’t quite sure where to start.  We had a couple of mini-shoots at work, to show off some new merch on the store’s facebook page, but we never really got a chance to get together …
