In the night, We hear the call

  Anyone that has photographed Christine Keenan from Maggie can tell you that she is a force to be reckoned with on set, my favorite kind of model ( and my favorite type of girl!) She is always willing to do whatever it takes to get the shot and she has shown me an incredible amount of trust on numerous occasions, especially this shoot!

  At this point it is a joke between makeup artist Rose Fortuna, Christine, and I that eventually we will do a shoot where we don't cover her face in some crazy, all consuming makeup. But, to tell you the truth, she is one of the only models I trust to carry a shoot where your face is being covered. You have to really emote and push your gestures and Christine is amazing at that. So thank you Christine for having a little faith with these images and I can't wait to see you again!


Blacklight is one crazy mama' jama'.

This is what friends do, cover each other in paint and feathers. 
We got a little silly; I mean come on, we are in tribal paint.

Ke$sha eat your heart out!

Just a few images from our shoot!

Sinfully Sweet

   Makeup artist Dianna Quagenti and I have been wanting to work together for a while now and our schedules finally allowed a little play time! Together with Model Orla Roche from Maggie we did a shoot around the idea of being consumed and obsessed with sugar. They are definitely some of the most colorful photos I have taken so far and I'm loving it!

My shot sketches, mood board,  and sweet props for the shoot!

So much sugar shouldn't be legal!

Dianna Quagenti skillfully applies cookie frosting to Orla's eyebrows, yummy!

Orla's fantastical sprinkle eyelashes!
   Ps: I had to hand separate every color sprinkle we used! I felt like I was running some kind of science experiment and collecting specimens!

My Dazzeling Dolls

  So between Rose Fortuna and I we could probably fill a house with random things and accessories we have saved for possible shoots, that's just how we are. So we decided we had to do a shoot revolving around the idea of childhood "dress up" and in all of our prop pack rat glory we dove into our closets! 

  I really loved how these images came out, they have an air of playfulness and youth that was completely what we wanted. The girls were fantastic and Rose even did the makeup with slight smudging to mimic that "play time" look.

And yes, she did make that Lisa Frank banner look fabulous

If you look real close you can see our mountain of props =)

I made this fabulous nail set for the shoot, and yes I still rock them on occasion

Tessa Morrissey, Rose Fortuna and Rachel Hurst

I think Tessa, Rose and I were separated at birth. Your attitude inspires me girl, I might just make this picture a poster.
