Fashion Photography gives me the opportunity to work with models, makeup/hair people and stylists. Sometimes we are shooting for a magazine and sometimes it’s for a model’s portfolio/zed card. No matter what the reason, I love being able to be creative!
A recent client who needed actor head shots was the adorable Lexie. She had multiple auditions coming up and since she is a singer/performer/actor she needed a commercial smiling head shot. We also decided to do a theatrical shot as well as a 3/4 body shot.
Photography for bridal jewelry can be challenging. Of course, you want the images to look romantic and dreamy but at the same time a potential customer has to be able to see the details of the piece. These are just a few images from a recent shoot. The designer sells belts, headpieces, earrings and necklaces.
I recently did a headshot session for a former model turned movie producer. I convinced him to let me shoot it square and we agreed on black and white. We also did a secondary image to be used for his IMDB page.
Fashion photography is clearly my favorite thing to do. At Harford Style Magazine, we decided to dedicate one issue each year to Brides and all things wedding related. Bridal and wedding images are so much fun since you can create very dreamy and romantic settings and it’s hard not to love a photo that features a gorgeous gown on a beautiful model.

Photographing gorgeous jewelry with a beautiful model for website and catalog images is a good day for a photographer. I was lucky enough to connect with String of Jewels and wonderful company run by a creative and sweet women named Traci Cormell. Website and catalog images.
Photography for pageants is something I have been doing longer than I’d like to admit. I was lucky enough to work with Brittinay Nicolette who was recently crowned Miss Maryland Collegiate America. I have hired Brittinay in the past for modeling jobs but this was our first time shooting for a pageant. Congratulations Brittinay and good luck in August at the Nationals!!
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.
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.
Finally the new issue of Harford County Style Magazine is on the shelves! I shot the editorial fashion photography pages this time at a great location…Brian Bunce Barbers. Originally I wanted to add a bit of 1940’s graphics to the images but found it was a bit too busy to the eye. So, the actual magazine pages look a little different than this, but I loved the graphics and wanted to share those in my post.
