I’m so excited to have my photo of adorable actress and model Journey Christine published in the Winter 2018 issue of La Belle Kidz & Teen Fashion Magazine.  I’m filled with gratitude to have my photography featured in such a stunning publication and so thankful to La Belle Kidz for the opportunity.

Journey Christine is featured as a La Belle Fav Model and I’m so happy for her. I was lucky to meet five year old Journey Christine in September. After talking to her mom about my plan for the shoot I found the perfect dress from Biscotti and designed a Beyonce-inspired floral crown for Journey to wear. Not only is Journey absolutely adorable but she has the most charming personality. She flitted from tree to tree, like a precocious little pixie, in a gorgeous park in Pasadena, California and worked her magic for the camera. The results were stunning and I’m so thrilled for her continued success.

 

To learn more about Journey Christine, visit her on Instagram and see all of the incredible work she’s already done for Disney, Honda, Walmart, Kohl’s, Home Depot and other top companies.

My Dia de los Muertos Wedding Shoot is Featured on POPSUGAR!

It’s been an exciting couple of months around here and it’s been a real challenge to contain my excitement! Especially because I’m really terrible at keeping secrets!  First, I was published in a print magazine AND my team and I got the cover. Then, I found out my Dia de los Muertos photos were going to be featured on POPSUGAR as well!

I’ve been familiar with POPSUGAR for a while, especially because they had a really nice subscription box. But, they are so much more!  They’re a lifestyle website that “delivers the biggest moments, the hottest trends, and the best tips in entertainment, fashion, beauty, fitness, and food.”  How cool is that?

I’m still in love with this Dia de los Muertos shoot and just so thankful for the team of professionals that helped me bring it together. And now to find out that it’s featured on such an amazing website is a dream come true!

See the entire feature here!

PS:  There seems to be some confusion about the Grooms Coat. It was inspired by the coat worn by Daniel Craig in the James Bond Movie, Spectre. But, the bones on the coat and tie were lovingly hand painted by me!

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!
