My Very First Photo Shoot

10 Mar

My very first photo shoot was in March of 2009 with John Wilson. I went in thinking I just wanted to shoot goth and darker stuff, but I didn’t realize how pretty I could look until I saw some of the photos. John was great at directing me and helping me with my expressions (which I am still working on to this day).

Here is one of the first photos we shot:

I love my hair and I really loved the way this shot highlights it. I don’t think anyone else up to this point has ever gotten it to blow around that well. I also love that jacket. I still wear it all the time.

And here are three photos from the prettier set I mentioned above. I was so amazed at how lovely they turned out.

And finally here are a couple from the darker sets we shot:

I did the make-up on that one, kind of on the fly since I hadn’t ever really done make-up at all at that point. I don’t know if I could do it again, but I think it turned out awesome.

And finally the one that is possibly my favorite from the shoot:

I so wish I could shoot more of that style but I simply do not have the wardrobe at this point. But I can say that if I’m only going to have one really good goth shot, this is the one I want 🙂

I was so lucky to have such a great first shoot. I think that shoot really gave me the confidence to really jump in to modeling and I will always be thankful to John for taking a chance and shooting with me. 🙂

A Taste of 2011

6 Mar

I thought I would share with you a few of my most recent photos taken during my first two photo shoots of 2011.

January Shoot

This shoot was a bit of a test, you could say, for me. It was my first shoot after much personal and modeling related drama, and was done to help me decide whether I wanted to continue modeling or not. My good friend Ted Vallejos of aglet photography agreed to shoot with me. Here is the lovely first “fruit” of that shoot:

With that result (and that only being one of many photos we both liked), I did of course decide I should probably give modeling another chance.

February Shoot

My second shoot was once again with Ted, but also with Bob Cassady as a sort of workshop to shot how Ted and I shoot. Perhaps not the best representation of a shoot as we are close friends and pretty much goof off while shooting, but always fun nonetheless and I think Bob enjoyed both watching us and shooting.

Here are three of the images Bob Cassady shot:

I think I may actually be most fond of the first image with the glasses, but it would be hard to say. Bob is great to work with. I spun around in that crinoline skirt so many times I think I almost ended up being dizzy. Lots of fun!

And of course Ted didn’t disappoint with this test shot of a concept I think he mentioned he had been wanting to try.

I don’t believe I need to say much. Although I will tell you that I love those shoes!

I look forward to sharing more from further shoots and I hope some of you will take these as incentive to book something with me soon. I am just itching to model again soon!
