Gahhhh!!! So cliche, but I HATE having my picture taken. I can pose you, no matter what body type or features you’re rockin’ but I can NOT pose myself. /sigh. Okay, now that I had my tantrum.
Along with the new branding I am also getting all new material printed and I’ve included a section about me. First, I’m horrible at writing about myself. Second, I’m horrible at getting my picture taken. So I asked my darling friend Eric to photograph me today. Eric taught me a lot about photography and now he’s a *retired* photographer so I was stoked when he agreed to do this for me. I wanted to kill two birds with one stone so I figured I would bring my mini man along and get some pictures of us together. I’ve never had professional pictures taken of us together. HYPOCRIT! Yes, I know. I guess I’m so critical of myself because I do this professionally.
Anyway, we battled with drive-bys, wind, wanting to do sun flares, and the heat. Oh and we fed a stray kitten. But I’m happy with the outcome. But just for the record, if you ever go to Forest City…. don’t dress like me. You’ll get weird looks.
PS- If you’ve followed me on Facebook you know I am now offering a discount to tattooed/modified brides. I am tattooed, so I can get away with profiling! And I think women who are tattooed are beautiful. The weddings of modified couples are always a TON of fun, which adds to my reason to wanting to build my portfolio with expressive and unique individuals. Email me about the details if you’re interested.
PPS- I’m setting up a day for a mini pin-up marathon. I use the term pin-up loosely. I’m not setting up the typical sets. It’s going to be hot rods, hot chics (inked preferably), and hot outfits. This will not be a boudoir/pin up type session. I’m working on finding a make up artist who can do pin-up styles. Email me for details and to put your name on the list. Slots are on a first come first serve basis.
So on to the photos! (Hair & Make up by Katie Cotton, Photography by Eric Mack, Lighting by Eric + Gavin, Editing by Me.)
And heres some of my crew! LOL
My FAILED attempt at a sun flare!
