I was chatting with my assistant Marissa yesterday over lunch after we had finished 3 shoots. We were talking about fun stuff like music, movies and tv shows. Marissa also shared with me some of the ideas for shoots she has and I encouraged her to pursue them and if there was anything I could do to help, I would be there for her. After all, it was Marissa and friends Kristine and Tanner whom were integral to putting me on a path of inspiration and growth this year.
Back in January of this year I had my first concept shoot that put me on a path of inspiration, collaboration and even publication. Marissa, Kristine and Tanner were all gracious enough to model for an Alice in Wonderland themed shoot. It was after that shoot that I felt my creative juices were allowed to flow freely, and I was determined to make photo shoots like that come to fruition.
Here's some highlights of those shoots from this year so far. I'm very fortunate that some of them have been published, but more importantly I'm excited to see where it takes me and how it brings my family portraiture and weddings into a more fashionable and stylish genre.
Wonderland (see orginial post here)
I was the Assistant Producer for an episode on the Framed show featuring New York fashion photographer, Lindsay Adler. (see that episode here)
A collaborative shoot for Horse Around Town. (see orginal blog post here)
An impromptu studio session with model Carrie, (see blog post here)
I have a few other editorials that I am still working on before they will be released, however here are a couple behind the scenes images from those. First, a photo shoot with the band Ashentide in Los Angeles.
And finally an image of me with one of the baby goats from the most recent editorial I photographed. Stay tuned to see where this will be published!
Thank you to everyone who has helped on these shoots either in front of the camera or behind. It's been a wonderful year so far, pushing myself and collaborating with others. I'm so thankful and can't wait to see where the next 4 months take me!
