The eagle has LANDED ! SO excited to see the new OUR WEDDING magazine hit the stands. Man alive was this a KILLER shoot ! It was one of my all time favorite covers. Our Models Kelsey Johnson and Ryan Ferguson from Cast Images really worked it out on this shoot.
Just the most awesome team EVERRRRRRRRR ! I could go on and on and on about my love for each one of these people we had working on this hot fashion model shoot, but I am going to try and contain myself.
I adore Sherri Morris from Brushworx Makeup Artistry with the make-up, and I am deeply in love with Tina Romo hairstylist to the stars. I am always so in awe of Sarah Kreutz, she is the best in the area for styling. She has such exquisite taste ! And much love for Debbie Hurst and Miles Harley with Sacramento Magazine and Our Wedding Magazine for giving me the gig and their art direction. And our ladies from the venue, Marjorie and Carrell were as cool as two humans could possibly be ! So very warm and kind and easy to work with. Their venue, the Coloma Country Inn is one of my all time favorites ! We had some of the best wedding people give us cool stuff to make our shoot more beautiful. Rebecca from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca and Katie from Ambience Floral both brought their treasures. I had TONS of help that day with my treasured Dacy McWhorter helping me with set styling, Carrie Nicole and Phoebe Verkouw being my right hand helpers all day. These shoots are not easy ! It takes a lot of folks working all day to pull this off, to be able to be the photographer is really such an honor and a blessing. I am one lucky ducky ! And YES, this is yet another ‘you are bloggin’ WAY too many images’ post, sorry, I am going to milk this for all its worth.
This is my favorite cover EVER !
This one is so ‘vampire movie’.
Again thanks to Sarah Kreutz for her great styling, love the dresses and accessories she found.
AND NOW MORE IMAGES THAT DID NOT MAKE THE CUT ( hey we only got so many pages, not all can make it in )
I just love everything about this photo, the hair, the make up, the coy look on the models face. Mama likes !
Love this cake right. It was a work of art !
Positivley LOVE this photo ! Thanks Katie from Ambience for bringing your beautiful flowers, love you !
How romantic right : )
LOVE LOVE LOVE !
BONUS : Lets get a closer look at the cake and flowers shall we ?
Stunning right ?
FUN FACT : My alternate title for this blog post was : ‘ We don’t mean to brag we don’t mean to boast, but we like hot butter on our breakfast toast ‘ but I feared few would get that reference : )
O.K change that to 2 backlights and a black background ( sadly I actually do think of blog titles like this and can not wait to get home to post them…..)
My super cool friends and I did a fun fashion shoot. I LOVE these gals, we LOVE doing fun shoots together to keep our creativity flowing.
Dacy Kolsky McWhorter styled our ‘ modern day Cleopatra ‘ theme shoot. Man alive is Dacy a talented lady. Sherri Morris, one of Sacramento’s Best make-up artists rocked the make-up and Tina Romo, my all time favorite hair person, did our super cute models hair. We were sooooooooooooo thankful to get such hot fashion model from our beloved Cast Images , as they well know, I am their biggest fan !
So here is what we came up with : A bit of cheesy for your viewing pleasure.
BUT WAIT…..DON’T ORDER YET, because I did one other 2 backlights and black background session that I am adding on when you call in NOW ( you just pay the shipping and handling ). This is one of my favorite gym instructors, Cathie Apple. She is a talented musician as well as one of the perkiest gym class instructors ever. I so appreciate her positive attitude every class she teaches. She is such an inspiration in many ways. Act now and get these :
Dig those back muscles right ? She teaches a weights class.
YAYYYYY ! Isn’t it the best to see spring polkin’ its little head in to our lives. And for me, No better spring time boost than seeing my photo of the cover of Sacramento Magazine ! What a thrill and an honor. We were so LUCKY to get a sunny day to shoot our ridiculously good looking Cast Images models, Ellen Hancock and Reed Daniels, for the March cover. Then ANOTHER sunny day with another stunning Cast Images model ( these good looking people make my work look GOOD ! ) for our shoot the next day !
A huge thanks to both of our make-up artists and my friends Sherri Morris ( cover shot ) and Shana Beals ( park shots ), two of my favorite gals in the business ( they ALSO make my work look good ) ! And one billion thanks to Debbie Hurst for being a dream art director and always bringing so much style to every thing she does !
This may sound sooooo cheesy, but I am in with LOVE Sacramento ! Born and raised here, I think Sacramento is the best place to live and LOVE so many things about our city. So who better than me to photograph some of the cool things to do around here.
Yes indeed I am a lucky gal :
And BONUS ! They used some of my photos from the California Hall of Fame !
OH HOW I LOVE THE BEST OF SACRAMENTO MAGAZINE EDITION ! Mostly because I usually get a lot of assignments.
Super cool beans right…but wait, don’t order yet, you also get…THE COOLEST FASHION SHOOT EVERRRRRRRRRR ( please insert the biggest Oprah voice here )
This was a dream shoot with all the cool kids in town. I thanked my lucky stars to get this assignment !
Having the GREATEST people in the world to make this shoot look this good was a big part of its success. My beautiful and talented friend Sheri Morris from BRUSHWORXS doing the make-up makes me look like a better photographer. And the uber stylist Sarah Kreutz pulling it all together, super deluxe style action there. Add Amber Sims, our skilled and stunning model from Cast Images ( I have wanted to work with her for the past 6 years, my dream came true ) Tina Romo from Canvas
Salon who kicked arse, and top it off with Debbie Hurst who is such a dream art director for any photographer to work with….and you get a killer fashion shoot.
There was just magic in the air for this one people. Here are a few more of my favorites:
