The Great North | Cotton Apparel with a Cause

In addition to some recent lifestyle and fitness goals that have left this photographer and sorta model feeling better than in a long time, I found myself able to work with The Great North!

Not only do they donate 10% of proceeds to environmental causes, but their apparel is also made with cotton, a true blessing in the gym!

This tank top is 90% cotton, which is pretty great, not just for aesthetics but for the environment, and my gym partners!

 

Check out more from The Great North and use ROMAA30 at checkout to get a whopping 30% off your purchase!

 

Let’s not forget to choose more environmentally conscious companies while we chase our goals…!

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?

Beauty comes in many forms.  There is beauty in the light as well as in the dark.

While we shouldn’t romanticize the darkness within us, it should be embraced, as the depths of our feeling absolutely influences the beauty of our souls.

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

 

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

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Delicate Lace | Gothic Lolita Portrait

This moody yet soft portrait was photographed while shooting the Pirate Queen theme.

When all dressed up in gothic fashion, with props and clothing all over the studio, remember to vary up your shots to get different looks in the same shoot!

By simply stepping closer to the camera, we can get a completely different portrait, even with the exact same styling!

Let’s keep playing, having fun, and stepping in front of the camera to be our own models~

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!
