Remember that we don’t need a lot of money to enjoy and create amazing things.

A kit lens, cheap lights, costumes and accessories from thrift shops, drugstore makeup, and modeling for yourself can go a long way.

Let’s not get caught up in what’s ‘trending’ and expensive.  Let’s get lost in our art instead.

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?

Can we all take a moment to appreciate the glory and beauty that is studio photography.  That white umbrella just may be one of my best tools in the studio for creating dark, glowing, stunning photographs!

With an alternative flair, hopefully!

What’s your favorite tool in the studio?

These Books | Fantasy Portrait

A little self love can go a long way in dealing with life’s ups and downs.  So what matters to you?  What would you like to spend more time doing?  What activities bring you back to yourself?

Be it spirituality, creativity, nature, time with family, or anything else, let’s spend more time enjoying the things that make us feel whole.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Soft Silver

Recently found myself playing in the studio and using an enormous, used reflector for the first time!

Lighting in most portraits has been pretty directional and one-sided, so why not add a reflector to even out the light for a more etherial, emotive feel?

The dried yucca flower was composited from another shot, as it was barely visible in this capture.

Let’s keep experimenting, practicing, and playing with new equipment, tools, and techniques!
