There’s still so much in the studio to photograph!  Lots of lace, books, horns and more.  But still in need of armor and more swords!

Red Flowers.

First effort in styling a wig for a photoshoot, and it came out alright despite almost destroying my favorite hair!

Hairstyling is worth the time and work, so here’s hoping to have some different styles for future shoots!

What’s your favorite style?

Baby’s Breath | Self Portrait

A more ‘traditional’ portrait with an alternative flair.

 

Let’s learn to love ourselves with all our heart and be our biggest fan, as we’re stuck with ourselves for life.

Thrills of Darkness | Boudoir Portrait

Second in set with Black Swan.

There’s a thrill that comes with darkness.  A sense of purpose as we slowly learn to master ourselves and our demons.

Everyone’s darkness is unique.  Our personal demons set us apart from each other, but they bring us together as human.

 

There is no light without darkness, nor darkness without light.

Let’s see the beauty in the darkness, and claim it as our own.

Pirate Queen | Fantasy Portrait

This fantasy shoot was inspired by a pirate theme as well as Gothic Lolita and Victorian fashion, and was great fun to shoot with a new 50mm lens!

As we head into the new year, whether in the realms of photography or our personal lives, let’s continue to embody strength and flexibility, and push ourselves.

Let’s explore, grow, and be fierce like a pirate queen!

Sometimes we need to branch out from what we’re used to doing.  Experimentation can lead to new passions or at least a new set of challenges and experiences.

Although beauty style shoots aren’t a passion, they draw my interest every once in a while.

Photographed after shooting Gothic Wallflower, because it’s often worth trying to shoot different styles during the same shoot.  Why not take advantage of the full makeup and costume to try something new?

Let’s keep playing, exploring, testing, and creating freely.
