Self Portraits

So a while back I decided to have some fun… I hand painted a new background and just had to test it out ASAP!

Here I used natural light to do a beauty styled photoshoot for myself, there are several challenge that come with self portraiture but I am so happy with how these photos came out. I am also so in love with the backdrop that I brought it with me to the United Kingdom when I moved and now I can wait do use it again.

Puppy Session

I had so much fun on this little cuties puppy session, during both photographing and editing.

I went for a newborn session look as a puppy photoshoot, lucky for me she was still young enough to be sleeping most of the day, making it super easy for me to move and fuss with her while I was taking her photos.

On to of everything she was just so adorable I couldn’t get enough of her and just wanted to spend the day photographing her.

Sheeba

Here she is, Sheeba 10 week old puppy, Max’s little sister (Max, last week’s post) at her first Doggie shoot.

After  she had a good sniff around my studio and wondering off every now and then, she sat just long enough between treats for me to take photos of  her and after she had her fill she started to get sleepy (just like her brother) and I got some lovely photos of her getting comfy and eventually falling into a well deserved slumber.

This beautiful blue eyed girl is a true model, well as long as you have treats to bribe her with. She has been on several photoshoots, including having taken part in a winter wonderland kiddies clothing shoot for a UK clothing company.

Max

10 Week old puppy Max’s first photoshoot. This handsome young husky’s photoshoot came just before christmas, I set up and decorated a christmas tree for him to pull down and he was well suited to the job, before I could even pick up my camera he was already pulling at the tree and I had just managed to take one photo and down came the tree.

He had an absolute blast and fell asleep half way through the shoot, thats when I manages to get a santa hat on him just long enough to get a few photos and then he was back at it. After a well deserved rest for Max we removed all the chewable props and he sat nicely for some puppy portrait shots.

Keep an eye out for his little sisters photoshoot coming next week.

Mini Mouse Cake Smash

This little sweetie pie is crazy about Mini Mouse, can’t you tell?

She also loved the balloons at her very own, “private birthday party”. She didn’t waste any time digging into the cake, face and all, and if didn’t take her long to smash the cake. Her mommy picked out her favourite cartoon character as her cake smash theme along with how the cake should look.

When booking a Cake Smash with me, you chose the theme you think your little one would like and what style you want the cake (cake included in shoot).

Cake by the talented Jennifer at Cakes for Any Occasions

Modeling Portfolio: Clinton

I had so much fun working with Clinton (male model), he took instruction so ell and really made the pose his own.

For this studio photoshoot I focused on specific lighting styles and creating a dramatic feel to the photos, I used the black background to do this and then we took a few photos on the white backdrop for something a little different. I also enjoyed the working on the smoking photos, lighting the smoke along with the model was a fun and different challenge and they came out really well.
