I think she could be famous.

I just edited color on these. here skin and body and face is already perfect. some were shot on film so i didn’t even touch them. love when that happens 🙂

New York Fashion Week- day 1

As most of you know already, I had the opportunity to go to NYFW with Amber Fillerup of  www.barefootblonde.com  and Cara Loren of www.caraloren.com. They are both very well known fashion bloggers who just are stunning and have the most incredible style. After living with them for a week I realized I need to get ready more often. Cuz they just look amazing 24/7.

Every day I shot their outfits, them out on the town, backstage the shows and then the fashion shows themselves. New York just makes any picture look better I feel like. You can literally stand anywhere and it looks amazing cuz everything is so cool! Tall buildings and old buildings and taxis everywhere. It really is a weirdly beautiful but kinda smelly place. haha

Anyways, here is the first day through my eyes 🙂

Lakeside Maternity Shoot- National Maternity photographer

Rachel is probably one of the most stunning women I’ve ever seen. Her face is so perfect it almost looks unreal. Throughout the whole shoot I kept saying how she looked like a fairy or some ethereal creature from Lord of the Rings. haha.. Hopefully she took that as a compliment cuz thats how it was meant.

We shot on the shore of the lake and then went and drove around until we found this perfect lush green spot that I couldn’t pass up. The sun was so low and the light looked  hazy and thick..It was just perfect.

Cant wait to see your beautiful child!!!

Subway Style- Fashion shoot New York Fashion Week 2013

This week has been a blur. This city is madness for fashion week! Amber and Cara have been sticking out amongst the hundred of other fashion bloggers. They are just killing it here. The paparazzi loves them! They just tied for the “newcomer of the year” award.

This is one of the million shoots we’ve done here this week. I really wanted to go down to the grimy subway and shoot their bright colorful outfits amongst the ickiness haha. Love how it turned out. Love them

 

Alex + David Engagements- National Wedding Photographer

First off, yes, they are a real couple. Hard to believe I know.

They both wanted a really simple field type location, which is was not was I was thinking for them at first, but who am I kidding? We could have taken pictures in a cardboard box and they would have turned out beautiful with these babes!

So these two have the most incredible story, I wish I could remember every detail as they told me because it was unreal. But I still must share it in a nutshell!

David is from Dubai, Alex is from Utah. David was shown a picture of Alex and he instantly knew he had to marry her. He then flew to the USA without her knowledge or ever even talking to her , to track her down and take her out. He found her, asked her out and they ended up talking for hours. At the end of the night he pretty much told her he wanted to marry her. Shortly after,  Alex flew to Dubai with him and they were engaged!!! I died when they told me. Never heard a story like it 🙂

How could you not marry someone after doing all that?
