Wednesday was my second time attending such a large shoot. I’m gonna guess there were about 50 creatives there, photographers, body painters, make up artists, hair stylists, fashion and jewelry designers, and models as well as a handful of incredibly helpful assistants…all there ready to create beautiful images with the help of one another. Everyone involved contributed nothing less than their very best, and the results really show it.
I would like to share a few of my own ^^
This first gallery is features my model, Cristina Scala, a beautiful head piece by Tina Marie, and of course the body painting and the photography is that of my own.
I have the first image up on FB but of course some butthead flagged it. Flag me now ;D I wish I had gotten some of her back and some detail shots, but I only had her for 5 minutes before I had to share her with everyone else ^^ I would love to see more images from everyone else of my painting, if you shot with Cristina I’d love to add it to the gallery!
Now here is the last of my sneak peeks. If you follow me on FB then you have already seen a few of these, but I wanted to showcase every girl I had the pleasure of working with.
Captions don’t work in gallery mode so I’m just going to name the models and link here so you can view everyone who contributed.

Much love <3 Feel free to share this link via the buttons below if you are so moved to do so <3
This post is a long time coming but today I was finally compelled to write it =]
As a photographer, a lot of my time is spent with families: re-unions, newborns, weddings, seniors, etc. All of these people are looking for an image to remind them of a special time in their life. And I love it when people approach me, trusting me with this task.
As an artist, I try to conceptualize and re-create an idea or an emotion. You have probably seen a lot of my personal photography work, and a lot of it would probably be categorized as “fashion” photography.
I get asked a lot why I work so much with models and why do I like painting on naked people so much. People tend to throw the word vain around an awful lot and make remarks such as, “You just don’t seem like you’d be into that sort of thing.”
That sort of thing? What exactly is that sort of thing? And why are you making such vague assumptions about me? I am an artist, I thrive on beauty and I want to share the beauty I see everyday.
But now let me clarify: I am the Beholder. These are MY eyes. There is nothing wrong and nothing vain about women wanting to feel how beautiful they really are. Wanting to look and feel beautiful does NOT make anyone vain. You’ll notice in most of my work that very few even have make up on(don’t get me wrong, I like to go crazy with make up sometimes, it is fun to play around! But it’s never needed) . I don’t do crazy retouches (although I am a retouch master and have a side retouching business…just because you CAN does not mean you always should). I use a variety of women, all shapes, sizes, colors, because they are all gorgeous. When I have a say in wardrobe, I always ask my girls to keep it simple.
My art…my job as a photographer… is not to simply CLICK a button, and bring every image into photoshop and completely smooth their faces, remove every wrinkle, freckle, birthmarks and features that makes them, them. Before I even click that button, there is usually this awkward moment between myself and my model (and if you’ve ever shot with me, you KNOW what I mean xD) There’s this difficult task of displaying, in a pose, how this person before me inspires me. Is it their laugh? Their eyes? Do they carry their arms as though they are floating on the clouds? The way their hair falls into their face. Basically, the things that you generally notice when you fall in love…those are the things I search for when I take these pictures. And those are the things I strive to capture.
No, I am not saying that I fall in love with all my models! I am not that creepy! But I am open enough to not be afraid to search for those subtle things, things that ones professionalism may prevent them from seeing. There is a sense of intimacy in all my personal projects. I do not simply select models that “look good” because that is not what makes a beautiful image. Most professional models that I have worked with actually, are rude and think they are the hottest thing to have ever walked the face of this earth. THAT is vanity, my friends. And it is a hideous creature that I do not wish to work with ever again.
It’s the beautiful people…with beautiful quirks and beautiful souls. They make my images shine.
So, last night my husband and I were lucky enough to get to see Floater at the historic Whiteside Theatre in Downtown Corvallis. First of all, Floater is amazing. They’ve been around forever (’93) and every single album is a masterpiece. They are Oregonians, so if you are reading this and have no idea who they are you probably aren’t from around here. Although you may, since they are still huge and have been up for Grammys in the past. Still, they choose to play small, local venues and and keep their ticket prices low so people don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to see a show. They are very community and fan conscious =] They even had a local band, Ambush Party, open up for them (they were pretty awesome too, will add pics on my Facebook soon) The event was in benefit of restoring the theatre…it was a beautiful, intimate setting…I believe ticket, merch, and drink sales all went toward Whiteside Theatres restoration project. Check out their website if you’d like to contribute and see some great shows at the same time =]
Pictures! Here are a few. We were right up front and I didn’t have my camera out long because all the moshers were getting crazy so I had to put it away. But Robert Wynia was right there! And it was a pretty sweet show, sans the morons behind us. I couldn’t get any of the drummer because from my angle he was totally concealed by his set =[
After the show Rob gave us each a hug =*] He was sweaty but I totally didn’t even care.
So! These last few months have been a whirlwind of Maternity and Newborn sessions, a relatively new subject for me to tackle. And it’s been awesome! Minus my awkward rambling, apologizing to the expectant mothers about having to climb the stairs to my studio, and asking them if they feel comfortable walking a few blocks to the river front hehe but hey what can I say? Regardless, it’s been crazy and I have loved every minute of it.
And let me tell you now, I have gone a bit prop crazy.
It gets expensive! And cluttered, oh so very cluttered, very very fast. So I came to a pretty good solution I think, that keeps the images unique and let’s me kind of control the creation more too.
I taught myself to knit!
Sure, the first few hours made me want to cry (haha!) BUT once I figured out the slip knot ( =P ) the rest just took off. The strange hieroglyphs in the books all began to make sense…CO, K, P, YO, K2TOG….that’s my language now. I started with the basics, the simple knit stitch. Once I could knit a scarf with my eyes closed I moved on to different stitches…and then I began alternating the stitches and combining them in difference sequences to see how they ended up looking. I began making simple beanies. Then square tops…now I’m making pixie hats, bonnets, and kitty ears! I am currently teaching myself how to make an awesome stegosaurus hat/blanket. I’ve been making little wraps with big holes to let little tootsies pop out of.
The great thing about knitting is that, with enough time and effort, I can teach myself to create almost anything I want. And with that sort of freedom and creative license, I won’t have to keep chucking my money at someone on etsy who makes mass produced items. I may not be the best ( I still drop stitches and lose them forever sometimes =P ) but once I start getting more of these awesome ideas in my head OUT the quicker I’m on my way to being it.
Any knitters out there? Let’s share patterns!
