As of Late with Maskcara | Beauty Photography | Jessica Janae

Maskcara | before and afters | 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!!

Albion Fit Shoot in Guatemala | Fashion Photography | Jessica Janae

Guatemala| Fashion shoot | swim wear | Jessica Janae top photographer

This blog post has been a long time coming.

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Guatemala with the most incredible team to shoot Albion Fit’s lookbook.

Our team consisted of myself,  the husband wife owners of Albion Fit Liz and Dave,

one of Albion’s employee extrordinaires Madeline- https://www.instagram.com/madelinebecker/

Brad and Hailey Devine – http://www.somethingdevine.com/

Hailey’s sister and brother in law Erica and Jay- https://www.instagram.com/cleansimpleeats/

https://www.instagram.com/hiittrainer/

Makenna Mcreynolds – https://www.instagram.com/makenna_alyse/

and Salome- https://www.instagram.com/s_andrea_b/ !

It was hands down the most amazing trip of my life. I still cant believe we got to see all the things we did. The best part was the group. We all hit it off immediately. On the flight we became instant best friends, it was insanity and crying laughing the rest of the trip haha.

Liz (the owner of Albion) grew up in Guatemala for most of her childhood. Albion’s factory is there and has created work for so many amazing people. People who came from absolutely nothing who have now been able to put their kids through college. One of the most amazing experiences was being able to go to the factory and meet everyone who makes the clothes. They truly love their jobs.

Liz took us all over Guatemala. To every single one of their favorite spots. I had no idea Guatemala was so beautiful.

We began in Antigua, the most famous city there full of color and life and bustling cobblestone streets with the most beautiful architecture. Then we went  to Atitlan, probably the most beautiful hotel and view Ive ever seen in my life. Its right on a massive lake that is surrounded by 3 volcanos so the water is super warm.. we then boated across the lake to Santiago to shop the markets there!! Next up was Tikal.. the hotel we stayed at actually scared me a bit because we were right in the depths of the jungle. The most memorable experience I had was there in Tikal when we got up at 3 am to hike through the jungle to the top of one of the mayan temples to watch the sunrise. It was breathtaking and absolutely terrifying. The howler monkeys howled all night and morning, they sound like some sort of Dementor mixed with a jurassic park dinosaur. The last place we went was my most favorite of all. I want to cry sometimes when I think about it because it was just too beautiful to even try and explain. Rio Dulce. We stayed at Hotel Catamaran. Every room is a little bungalow on the water. Rio Dulce is this massive amazing river that the whole little town is build on and around. Everyone gets around on canoes. The river flows into the Carribean ocean which we boated to.. We boated to beaches and waterfalls, even a hot spring waterfall that felt like a massive hot tub. Just the most incredible place that I dream about all the time..

If you havnt already, go watch the video the Devines made which just sums up how much fun we had!!!!! just crazy insane freak of nature fun. https://youtu.be/oQI_LVNKAQ8

enjoy the pictures! xoxo

Retro House Fashion Shoot | Salt Lake City | Whitney

Salt Lake City Fashion Photographer

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!

Sadie Jane Family Session | Salt Lake City | Whitney

Salt Lake City Family Photographer

Hello everyone!  Long time no posts… from me…. whoops!  For some reason putting together blog posts is a real struggle for me.  I’m a person who hates doing anything I HAVE to do, but DON’T have to do.  You know what I mean?  I would say it’s a big character flaw for me.  I’m also a know it all, but that’s another story for another time.  It feels good to be back on the blog and I have a bunch of other posts I am putting together at the moment before the crazy season begins again.  So watch out for me!

 

I don’t know if many of you have heard of Simply Sadie Jane, but she is an incredible fitness blogger!  I met Sadie at an Albion Fit fashion show, but it was very brief.  When I really got to know Sadie was during a sweat session at the Albion Fit Soulstice Retreat.  We were paired together in a little HIIT workout so she got to see me fall to my knees during pushups and watch my bad form on my squats thanks to my awkwardly long legs and high center of gravity.  Luckily I was in pretty good shape at that time so I could kind of keep up with someone as amazing as her!  Sadie is everything that you want in a person and blogger…. incredibly down to earth and sarcastic, genuinely nice, realistic, beautiful, and a hot bod that she works HARD for (she lost 80 pounds years ago and has kept it off).

 

Sadie was nice enough to let me come up with the concept of her shoot.  At the moment I was feeling very inspired by the vibrant colors that Kodak Portra 800 gives off.  So I based the shoot around that.  I had her and her family wear jewel tones and told her to put her husband in tweed.  She hired a stylist and the rest is history.  We had a great time taking these photos…. other than the INSANE amount of wind that made the kids hate life… but other than that…. pretty good ha!  As you can see Sadie is no stranger to the camera and it loves her!  Throughout this shoot I have both color and black and white film.

 

Enjoy!

– Whitney

Holiday Editorial Shoot | Jessica Janae| Fashion Photographer

holiday fashion photo shoot | Jessica Janae Photography| top fashion photographer

Its shoots like this that keep me going some days. These shoots are what I consider my creative outlet.

Bella and Elise are some of the most beautiful young girls I have ever seen in my life. They are both tall and elegant and beautiful dancers. I consider them my muses. Whenever I have an idea for a shoot I instantly picture one of them. I have been dying to shoot them together all year.

We had a lot of fun up at Bella’s house styling the shoot, trying on clothes, doing hair and makeup, eating chips haha. It reminded me of being in high school again when thats all I’d do. Before the business end of photography came about! Makes you remember why you love photography in the first place.

The entire shoot was less than an hour. I knew the look I wanted and went for it. We took probably 10 frames in Bella’s bedroom, a few minutes by the mantle and in the window sill. Them being dancers and me a past dancer and then coach I feel like we are just on the same brain waves. They know exactly what I mean when I show them or explain to them what I want them to do, its so easy.

We then trudged through the 3 feet of snow outside to a little lane only about 100 feet from the house. The snowflakes were huge and seemed to be falling in slow motion. Exactly what I had imagined only better.

I hope you guys enjoy the images as much as I do! xoxo

Happy holidays!

J Bella Fashion Shoot | Pocatello, Idaho | Jessica Janae

Got to take a little road trip with my assistant Dayna to Pocatello, which I forget exists haha! Who knew it was such a freaking cute old town?! Jamie, the owner is one of the nicest humans I’ve ever met on the entire planet and gave me complete creative freedom to do whatever we wanted around the town. Even climbing up on the rooftop which is my fave. I Loved how all the models were so different. Different ethnicities and body types etc. I just think it makes it so much more realistic for the customers. Hope you enjoy! Go check out their shop!! http://www.jbellashop.com/

Jessica Janae Photography | Monday Tip | City Locations and Lighting

Hey everyone! Today’s tip is about shooting outdoors on location.

When I am shooting on location, especially in the city I focus on finding the light and then placing my subjects in it. instead of thinking about the subject and background first I look around and find the best pockets of light around the spot we’re at. And light streak on the ground, across the wall or through the trees i take note of and then throw my subject right in.

Don’t be afraid of shooting in direct sunlight or even side light like in the video, as long as you expose for their skin it will turn out amazing! Once get over the fear of shooting in direct sunlight front or back lit it will change your photography. Light gives your pictures a magical vibe you can get in no other way. Get out of the safe shadows. Especially in city type locations when you want it to look cool and edgy. Shade will just make it look blah if you stay there the entire time!

Jessica Janae Photography | Backstage Pass | Day of the Dead Halloween Shoot

Hey yo everyone!!! This weeks backstage pass video is of our rad Halloween shoot from a few weeks back! We collaborated with so many amazing people (all listed below), and all threw our ideas into the pot to make a different sort of Day of the Dead shoot! Complete with a dead skeleton girl who has come back to haunt and slowly suck the soul of the “other woman” who has married her husband, is a witch and was behind her murder. Atleast that’s what I think the shoot was about hahahah. Sometimes I just gotta make up a story to get the flow going.

We shot this at the SLC cemetery, starting right before nightfall. It was a tad bit terrifying once the sun was completely down. We found the creepiest spot in the whole place under some old trees with crumbling gravestones. There were some people visiting the cemetery and joggers going by who were probably horrified seeing some witch on a hill standing over a table with candles and a cauldron hahaha.

Halloween has been my favorite holiday my entire life and I’ve never once done a Halloween shoot. No idea how thats even happened. Be looking forward to the reveal of these pics in a few days. Xoxo happy Halloween

Little Unicorn | Salt Lake City, Utah | Jessica Janae fashion shoot

top commercial photographer | little unicorn | Jessica Janae

Oh bless Little Unicorn. My good grief their stuff is amazing. They have an awesome team of people who are super talented and super kind. All their patterns you see were hand painted by the girls on their team. They’re different than any other baby blankets I’ve seen. Such gorgeous patterns and the softest of all time. of all time haha.  Me and my husband love them and want a huge kind size quilt !!!

So this shoot happened over a few days. Starting at my studio. It was a crazy day of moms and toddlers and newborns and all sorts of kid madness! Which I actually love because I absolutely love babies and I love shooting movement, which kids are doing every minute of every shoot, so, bam. haha…

I used my own kids for a few pieces and shot them just playing in my parents backyard. I handed them a few things and let them run around and play for an hour chasing them and trying to capture real life feel. So hopefully you all can feel that realness.

Anyways I hope you all enjoy! check out little unicorn here –

Jessica Janae Photography Monday Tip | Lightroom Basics

Supppp y’all. For today’s backstage pass vid I’m gonna show you how I flow through my shoots in Lightroom. Sorting files and then making presets. Everyone asks me what presets I use, the pack I bought and love to use is VSCO. Best ever. But mainly I use my own presets. I’ve made soooo many of them it’s like 5 packs right there. I’ve held onto them for a long time cuz I think they give me a specific look that’s a little different but I’m gonna let hem loose on the world soon and sell them cuz they’re rad. So be watching out for the announcement for that!

Anyways I hope this is helpful for your newer Lightroom users! Thanks for watching!

xoxo
