Headshot action. I miss you, Michelle! We had a blast; dragging you across carpet to get your “escaped captive” theme alive. You look so sweet here, we know the truth though.

A tattooed princess and her toys. Tiffany has a Master’s in History and has written a few published papers on tattoo history. She is sweet and wicked all in the same moment. This is a candid outtake capturing her essence (along with some fun toys she brought along sitting around the periphery).

Blair, Blair, Blair! A wonderful friend, model, director, and artist. When she said she wanted photos with her guitar, I took it as a challenge because it’s so easy to be trite and cliche with guitars and pretty women! So, we did something a little different and created this shot to show what Blair feels like when she plays her guitar.

A classic, glamour boudoir scene. This amazing moment came care of many wonderful people. Concetta’s Closet supplied the classic undergarments. Trinity Baker provided professional makeup and face contouring. Caitlin and Spring unleashed their inner 1950’s-style sexuality.

It’s not all serious! Here’s a super-playful outtake from a session with a Brooklyn-based artist named Stephanie. She was looking to capture fun and sexiness in all of her shots and this shot is a cool sample of what we accomplished. Along the way, we played with classic David Bowie shirts, her guilty cigarette fetish, and lots of ripped panty-hose.
