Park Lake Mermaid Portraits [Miss Marin]

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

park lake mermaid portraits

As a treat for Marin’s 10th birthday, she got to transform into a beautiful mermaid! Park Lake was a perfect backdrop for her mermaid portraits that evening with its gorgeous views of the water. The docks and rocks against the lake were perfect for a mermaid to come out onto land and Marin was all for climbing on everything! She had some pretty great skills in hopping around with a fin on, while her dad helped her with the more difficult terrain :)

Her mermaid tail was so fun to play around with and I’m sure she’ll get lots of use out of it this summer. It definitely deserves a few more swims!

Jenni on Film [Personal Project]

Lethbridge film photography portrait session

Finally, a new film photography session! I started trying to use up my film two years ago with Beth, and somehow the time got away from me! This means the film was expired by an extra two years and thanks to my camera eating the first roll of film, I ended up switching to 800 ISO. Oh, the grain! I’ve toned it down a bit after scanning but the age of the film is starting to show. Maybe by the next session I do like this we’ll start seeing some awesome color distortion :)

My model this time was Jenni. I’ve danced with her for a few years now and thought her tribal bellydance outfit and steampunk costume would be awesome to capture with film. We timed things perfectly to get the tail end of the canola fields being in season in Lethbridge and I’m so happy with how the film captured the colors. Jenni did a great job and I so appreciate her patience when the first roll of film died on us.

Jessica Rabbit | Lethbridge Cosplay Photos

Lethbridge Jessica Rabbit cosplay photos

I love themed photo shoots so having an opportunity to photograph Amanda as Jessica Rabbit was super exciting. Jessica is such a classic character with so much charisma, and I had to make the photos sensual with a little pinup while still pulling off an over the top cartoon character. Amanda really brought the character to life, and I have to give a huge thank you to the Owl Acoustic Lounge for letting us use a corner of their space that afternoon as it was absolutely perfect as a backdrop. Makeup was once again done by the talented Katt Panic (I love how she cleverly hid the real eyebrows). (more…)

Elizabeth | Lethbridge Cosplay Photography

Lethbridge portrait photos of girl in cosplay, Japanese fans

I was so excited when Elizabeth came to me with her costume ideas for a photography session, both of which were female-warrior inspired but vastly different from each other! With some wonderful makeup and hair work from Katt Panic before our session, we first set out to do an Asian style theme in the lush trees, followed by a Viking style over at the coulees. I love that Lethbridge has such diverse landscapes that we could pull off such different looks within 10 minutes of each other! Elizabeth was great to work with and I love her creativity in coming up with the main idea. (more…)

Cassandra as Blind Mag

Friday, March 19th, 2010

It took some planning and a crew of people to get the artistic vision perfect, and I was happy with the results of turning Cassandra into her own version of Blind Mag from the movie Repo. This is a bizarre, wonderful dark rock opera, so if you’re into quirky things like that, be sure to check it out! I was hoping to do some evening light painting with this shoot, but the temperature dropped quite considerably and our fingers went pretty numb, so we stuck primarily with strobes.

Sara (who is new to the photo scene; check out her link below!) was a huge help with moving my lights around and manning the flashlight so I could get the focus right, and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without her. This was also the first shoot I had Bonnie do makeup for, and I hope there will be many more because that girl is talented! And if the zombie makeup is any indication of what those two can do, you shouldn’t be too surprised with this costume.

Blind Mag sneak peak

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Cassandra contacted me a while ago to do a photoshoot inspired by the character Blind Mag from the movie Repo, and things finally came together to make this happen! We had a great team on this and I have a few more to post, but won’t be able to get them online until I get back from WPPI. Stay tuned!
