Beauty photography and makeover sessions

This lovely young lady was a good enough sport to allow my makeup artist to do a “BEFORE” photo of her.   I wanted to photograph her because I loved her long red hair and perfect pale skin with freckles.  This is proof that my team can transform someone with our beauty photography and makeover sessions.

These shoots are great to do just as a treat to yourself or as a gift to a loved one.  They can be as simple or dramatic as you want!

Beauty photography for models

Lighting is the most important things when it comes to beauty photography for models.  A photographer has to learn to light in such a way that does not cause unflattering shadows on the model’s face.  A beauty shot may look easy but it’s truly a situation where you can spot a novice photographer vs an experienced one.  At this shoot, I worked with an amazing hair/makeup team which helps make a great photo amazing!  Not everyone will like this crazy lighting but I love these images.

Thanks Gina Bateman, Sarah Jackson and the lovely Allyson from L&M Modeling and Talent.

Fashion photography jewelry

In the past few months I have been working on new fashion photography images for a jewelry designer’s website.   Most of her marketing has been bridal related and she wanted to take her image to a new level.  I suggested doing the model images in black and white to make her site and her images stand out.   I was thrilled with the results!  We had a great team that day of makeup/hair/stylists that created some striking images that I am very proud of.  We also did some softer model images with her jewelry and hair pieces as well as individual shots of all her earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  Fashion photography jewelry.

Event Photography

This last month has been filled with mostly event photography.  One of my regular jobs is with Rams Head Center Stage.  I was lucky enough to photograph The Fabulous Thunderbirds last night!  They were amazing to watch and of course, sounded great.  If you haven’t been to Rams Head Center Stage at MD Live Casino…check it out!

Event Photography Bucknell University

This past week was filled with events at Bucknell University.  Homecoming at Bucknell involved so many different activities that needed two of us to cover all the event photography.  They had BBQ’s for staff, a huge Gala, a memorial service for a beloved professor and a wonderful arts evening of various performers.  Feats Inc. built an amazing tent and covered the buildings in lights to make the gala night extra dramatic in photos.

Photography for actors and models.

Autumn is my favorite time to do photography for modeling composite cards.  Photography for actors and models is very different than portrait work and allows for a lot of creativity.  I had a wonderful time working with model Ally from L&M modeling and talent.  About 2 years ago I shot the images for her first modeling composite card and what a difference!  Photography for actors and models.

Fashion photography for HC Style Wedding Issue

We had an amazing amount of fun with this Marie Antoinette inspired shoot for HC Style Magazine.  The dresses were provided by Amanda Ritchie Bridal and Beauty and also K&B Bridal both in Harford County.  Hair by Lisa Jones-Butz of Subtle Rebellion salon + gallery and makeup by Gina Bateman.  These were done a few months ago…but I needed to add them to my website.  This fashion editorial was shot in Harford County Maryland.  Fashion photography for HC Style Magazine.
