Our cover model, Nicole Fitzgerald
On a cloudy and pale July morning we set out to capture images of the mysterious Lady of the Lake.
The warmth of Summer held us in its languid embrace and the wildness of the wetlands enveloped us in enchantment.
With a smoldering look and the hint of mystery in her eye, the Lady of the Lake withheld all of her secrets from us.
The Enchantress beckoned us to come closer.
From the wetlands we moved on to a nearby pool and created magic as the sun rose hot and high in the sky.
I always love to see Behind the Scenes photos so I can see the scene from the perspective of someone else.
I’m so grateful to this team that I had the privilege of working with and especially thankful to Hair Stylist, Nicole Martin and Fashion Designer, Kasha Faye for inviting me to be a part of this collaboration. I’ve been officially published in a print magazine, the August 2018 issue of Avant Garde Magazine, and I have this amazing team to thank! I feel so lucky to know so many talented artists and to be able to create this beautiful shoot, surrounded by a talented fashion designer, a hairstylist who transforms models tresses during New York Fashion Week and my friend, Emmy Award Winning Make Up Artist Margaux Lancaster, was a dream come true. The model, Nicole Fitzgerald, is a delightful soul and we recently got together to take some lifestyle and fitness shots of her and I can’t wait to share them! And I feel so thankful that my husband, Phil Barker, came along on the shoot and was my photography assistant and runner. Thank you, everyone!
