As of Late with Maskcara | Beauty Photography | Jessica Janae

Shooting for Maskcara is one of my most favorite things in the world. I started shooting her a couple years back and it has just grown into an incredible thing. She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. No lie. Ever. Love her and her cute family so much I could just scream. She’s so unique because she’s insanely successful and yet you’d never know it because she’s chill and down to earth and the lowest maintenance human who loves everyone she meets.

I use her makeup every day. I die at how brilliant she is. Every shoot we do is so much fun. Just so much love over here right now ahhh!!!!!

These are my faves from some past shoots that we’ve done together in SLC and in St. George, Utah.

ENJOY!!

Retro House Fashion Shoot | Salt Lake City | Whitney

Hi everyone!

This is a shoot that I’m definitely excited to post!  Lately I feel as if everyones work in Utah looks THE SAME.  Like, almost exactly the same.  Everyone is copying everyone else and it’s turning into a big, confusing, mess.  Almost all of these photos were shot on film (there are 7 digital shots… can you find them?).  Normally when I shoot film I overexpose, but for this shoot I intentionally exposed the photos to look almost exactly as the scene did in real life, OR underexposed for that muddyish look.  When shooting these photos I really tried to focus on the design aspect of things. These photos are not perfect.  You will notice that a few of them are soft.  The house was very dark and the viewfinder on on my cameras is very hard to see through, so it’s literally a shot in the dark.  I still included the images because there is just something about them.  All of the styling was done by me and much of the stuff the model is wearing is actually vintage.  Here is the story behind the details of this shoot…

A couple of months ago I was on Snapchat (you can follow me whitneybrailsford) and my friend Maggie was posting videos of her grandmas INCREDIBLE house!  I quickly messaged my friend and let her know that I was inspired by the place and wanted to do a shoot.  Luckily Maggie is also an artist so she was all in!   I immediately thought of the model Tiffany when I thought of the look that I wanted to achieve with this shoot.  Tiffany is gorgeous inside and out.  I also brought Vivian Makeup Artist on to do hair and makeup because she is absolutely the only person I would trust for a shoot like this.  She is the perfectionist of all perfectionists and SO talented.  The perfect combo!

Now… about those gorgeous Tintypes… my friend Sylvia deserves her OWN paragraph!  Sylvia is my great friend from college.  The first night I really spent with Sylvia was an all nighter in the darkroom.  Do you even understand what I am saying here?  An ALL NIGHTER IN THE DARKROOM…. we are talking on your feet…all night long.  Things got crazy under that red light that night and bonds were made.  Sylvia and I did a lot of undergrad together as well as traveled through Europe together.  We have a strong bond, Sylvia and I.  Sylvia is so unlike anyone I have ever met.  While traveling through Europe we would often end up sitting apart on long train or plane rides.  I would walk off of the trains having had a really nice nap and Sylvia would walk away with someones life story and contact info.  She has this way of making you feel so comfortable so quickly so you end up telling her all of your greatest joys and challenges.   She is Sylvia.  She owns everything about herself.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, Sylvia shot the photos that have the almost Sepia look to them.  They are called wet plate collodion or tintypes.  Go ahead and google them for a better idea of what they are, but it’s a pretty insane process.  Sylvia has to take a portable dark room as well as HUGE HEAVY BOXES full of chemicals and lights to every shoot she goes to.  Ever seen someone with an accordion camera underneath a black cloth?  Yeah.  That’s her.  Sylvia is an ARTIST.  She loves her art and pursues it no matter the expense.  It’s something I admire about her and it inspires me to be the same. You can find Sylvia’s Work on instagram at @sillverstill… make sure you don’t miss that extra “L” in sillver!

WOW!  Did you make it through that?  I’ll let you look at the photos now haha!  Enjoy!

Whitney

Mermaid Perfume Beauty Shoot | Jessica Janae

Whenever I see bloggers post about a beauty product I always wonder if they actually like the product or if they’re just posting about it because they got it sent to them. Mermaid is a company I’ve been wondering about, and let me tell you that I am kind of obsessed now. I did a shoot for them recently and they sent me some stuff to try, it was soooooooooooooo good!!! I’m a huge sucker for perfumes and lotions anyway so when something smells and feels like this stuff I’m in heaven. The body oil is unreal. I’ve never smelled something better than it and Its like thick buttery oil if thats even possible. I caught my husband using the body oil once haha.  And the perfume is like citrus and plumeria mmm…..

Anyways, I highly suggest buying some stuff for yourself of bff for mom or husband? haha
