Teresa

3 12 2014

I shot this of my friend Teresa when we were in college at Pan Am in Edinburg, Texas. I was definitely on the Renaissance-romantic-princess-fairytale-vaseline-on-the-UV-filter kick in those days. Oh, and I always had to fashion headpieces of flowers out of mom’s flower arrangements to complete the scene. Teresa was a beautiful subject for my lens!

A very different Nicole

3 12 2014

I photographed my friend Nicole several times many years ago (in fact, one photo of her ended up as one of two selected by American Photo magazine in their 2nd Annual Readers Photos Contest—I had two out of the 146 published!—in the early 90s. That photo had her in her “natural state,” with gorgeous Rapunzel-like hair (all hers) in a flowy golden gown. For this session several years later, I brought out my bag ‘o wigs and we decided to totally switch it up. I thought she looked like a mysterious French actress. I did a soft-focus technique with vaseline smeared on a UV filter and also upped the ISO of the film (slide days) to create the grainy look.

I photographed Marisa a few days ago and we just finished converting one of our favorite images to b&w using one of my actions from Florabella. I like the warm tint to this particular action. More shots to come…

Vintage Laurie

20 07 2012

While Laurie was in town to see my show and be photographed for the Hearing Loss Magazine, we also had a fun modeling session one night. For this vintage look, I used the Musette filter from the Florabella Luxe Collection, with a few tweaks. For the gown underneath her shrug, I wrapped her with this cool bubbly-texture throw that I bought at IKEA, of all places.
