Portrait of a Makeup Artist

Its been my experience over the years that makeup artists are undercover models! Kristiaan and I met Krysta at a wedding in 2015 and we began Instagram-stalking each other then. Fast forward a year later and I reached out as I wanted to do some simple and clean beauty shots (first two images). However we got to creative thinking and Krysta had some great outfits put together so we turned it into somewhat of a personal fashion portrait session. Creatives are always the best to work with.

If you're interested in camera settings or how lighting was achieved simply hover over the image and details will appear.


Portrait of an Artist | Richmond, Va

This was my second shoot with Natailie since our first meeting a year ago. This time we had the opportunity to shoot in the industrial area near Shockoe Bottom. Natalie is a graphic designer and inspired by many things but high on her list is fashion. She wanted some images both for school and business profile use with a good mix of personal/fashion images.

Below is a little of what we did. Enjoy.

Assignment: DiDomenico catalog shoot

Nothing is more fun and satisfying than having a great team to work with. From stylists, to hair & makeup to models. This was my second time working with Kelsy and her amazing team of talent. Below are just a few of many images taken for the DiDomenico Designs holiday and spring collections.

Fashion and fun with Martina F.

Its been a year since I've seen/worked with Gabe aka Fox aka Martina on a photography project. The last one left my house smelling like baby powder, but was TOTALLY worth it. This time she came up with the concept, outfits (even designed a few) and we had another great shoot. Happy to have worked with Samantha again as she provides excellent makeup services!
