Since moving to Ann Arbor I’ve been struggling to get back into my exercise routine that I had while in Jackson. I just don’t have the motivation I did when I was taking classes at the Y, so when I found out my coworker Martin was a personal trainer and model I had an idea. We came to the agreement that we would trade services, he’s building his model portfolio and I am trying to get healthier. It was a win-win situation! We started working out back in November and have seen some great results so far. It was time to get in the studio for his photos. The session was a nice change of pace since most of my work is done on location and I got to “play” around a little more than usual which always fuels my creativity.
Being an Ann Arbor glamour photographer definitely has its perks. There are so many creative people in the area and everything just came together for this glamour session. Yesterday I got the chance to work with hair and makeup artist Taryn, owner of ToughLoveMPD and Miranda Chase modeling a stunning dress from Mariposa’s Clothing and Accessories at Photo Studio Group. I had heard SO many good things about their facility from the photographers I went to school with and Taryn, I was really excited to finally be able to see it. They have an incredible studio set up and conference rooms! Plus, their memberships are very reasonable. I’m really looking forward to get back into the swing of things here in Ann Arbor and using Photo Studio Group more often.
Keep your eyes peeled, I will be offering a Limited Edition Glamour Photo session for 5 lucky ladies very soon. More details will be posted in the couple of weeks! Until then here’s some great images from the session.
When Missy first asked me to do some pin-up portraits for her, I have to admit I was a tad apprehensive because I had never done that style before, but since she’s a really good friend of mine I agreed. These were seriously SO much fun to photograph! We tried all kinds of poses and I have to say I loved every single image, it was so hard to narrow it down, so you guys get more images than normal. We had so much fun that even my dog, Piglet, wanted to join in!
After I showed her all the images, she had me design a hardcover book for her husband’s Christmas gift. I adored the book on screen, but once I saw it in print…oh my! She has one lucky hubby! That book is enough to keep anyone warm on a chilly night like tonight 🙂
A couple coworkers and I decided to have a fun shoot this past weekend. Jena and Amber modeled, along with Desi the horse and Tagus the dog. These are only a few of the photos I captured, I still have a lot more to go through and edit, but I wanted to share these because we had SO much fun. We spent almost 6 hours shooting at various spots on the property. And these ones were only from the first location! When we were leaving to go to the last spot, there was a really bright rainbow going all the way across the sky. I didn’t have a wide enough lens to capture the whole thing, but you can see a piece of how awesome it was at the end.
Keep checking back on the blog because I will be posting more of the images when I finish them.
