Venus & Trevor

Monday, September 7th, 2009

A week ago Jan and I headed over to Cardston for Venus and Trevor’s temple wedding. What cuties they are! I had a great time with them and their itty bitty bridal party, and they were so much fun! They came prepared to have fun in their photos and it made the day run so smooth.

I was very excited to see the zebra shoes Venus and her sister picked – if you see me much at all, you know how big a deal that is for me… I have a bit of an “obsession” with that pattern ;) Venus, thanks for keeping me in mind when shoe shopping!

They had a few requests for their photos, specifically: a field, and a tractor. Jan and I came to Cardston early, and were met with great luck for locations! Actually, the luck was too good, and I found so many places where I wanted to shoot, most of which we just didn’t have time for. At least we got to the best ones :)

Chelsey & Eric

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

This last very beautiful Saturday I got to shoot the wedding of Eric and Chelsey (Julie’s bridesmaid) and had such a great time…. I anticipated it would be so much fun, and I was not let down at all! These two are young, totally in love, and (my personal favorite) a little bit silly, which all amounted to such great moments for me to capture! We worked super fast to fit in all the wonderful ideas we had, and ran totally on time all day – they even had time for a few spins on the ferris wheel!

Zombie Pinups: Starsha

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

It’s been a while, but here is my first zombie pinup of the year! Between the great locations, Starsha’s excellent modeling, and not having done one in a while, it was really hard to narrow these photos down!

Starsha has several pet cockroaches, and we made use of them for the last portion of the shoot. They are actually pretty laid back creepy crawlies, but when we would put them on her they would make a run for it. We ended up having to only use one so they didn’t get lost in the field (because that would just suck for EVERYONE), and I multiplied it afterward. If you are absolutely terrified of cockroaches, it is the last photo, so you are safe to scroll through the 16 that come before it.

When I first arranged this shoot with Starsha, Hope Litwin had recently done a little personal assignment, Project: Norma Jean, recreating Marilyn Monroe’s ballerina photo. I found out Starsha had an orange tu-tu, so Project: Zomba Jean was born…

Zombie Pinups: Cassandra

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

This was a really hard one to narrow down, because Cassandra had such a great makeup job done. Though Cassandra is great at zombie makeup herself (she did the makeup for both myself and Dino at Lethbridge’s 2008 Zombie Walk), she enlisted the help of makeup artist Jamie Ripley, and wow! Plus, Cassandra is a zombie natural and is downright scary in some of these.

The farm girl theme worked out pretty fantastic with the location we picked :)

Cassandra

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Okay, I admit, sometimes when it comes to me grabbing models and doing shoots I’ve planned out, I can get a little behind on editing them! So here it is, finally, the shoot I did with Cassandra just after I got back from California in November.

We revisited the old abandoned farm where we had shot her Zombie Pinups because I was just so in love with the inside of one of the barns. It has this strange (because I’m not a farm girl and don’t understand it!) series of metal rods running along grids inside, and tons of cracks for light to spill in. It was perfect for some daytime light painting! I love doing light painting on models… it’s just hard to get them to hold absolutely still for 30 seconds, but Cassandra was awesome at, you know, not breathing for that long.

Cassandra and I both hit our heads on the rods a few times, but luckily I never tripped!

After stepping over pigeon “remains” in there for long enough, she changed and we did some photos outside around the barns in her reeeeeeally cool blue corset. Not as cool as her Carmen San Diego hat, but cool nonetheless.

Cassandra

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I am seriously bad for posting these because I am supposed to be working on other things and be in bed, but I couldn’t wait! Back when I did zombie pinups of Cassandra I noticed she is an awesome model (willing to climb all over and create her own poses) so today I finally did some “normal” photos of her, returning to the same location where we had done her zombie photos!
