Oh my gosh. I am SO behind in blogging! Let’s time travel back in time together to January 12, 2013. WeeeooOoOooOooEeoooOooo. That’s my time travel noise.
Hi. Welcome to my January 12, 2013 blog post. Today, I was lucky enough to have a good friend of mine, Jazzmin Jolly, travel down from Philadelphia to come shoot with me! As if my friends weren’t all awesome and amazing as it is, they also all happen to be models. It’s the nature of the industry and one of the many perks of being a photographer. So when my friends come to hang out, we shoot! Yay!
Jazzmin and I started with a quick Ariel cosplay shoot before immediately being booted from National Harbor. Well. That is always fun. Not. But that’s neither here nor there. This post isn’t about that shoot. It’s about THIS shoot!
Jazzmin and I were featured in Essere Magazine for our The Doll in White photo set!
(Get the issue here!)
Since we are now pros in time travel, let’s go back even farther. The whole idea came to me while I was location scouting a few days prior to Jazzmin’s visit. I read about a cool place online, so I thought I’d check it out as a potential photo location. After checking it out, I walked around through some trees for a bit and stumbled upon this little gem, which is actually way cooler than the original location that I had gone to scout! Don’t you love that? What a win!
So after a quick failure in National Harbor, we scooted on over to this location to switch to our little lolita doll shoot. Our mutual friend and lolita extraordinaire, Grace Valentine, let Jazzmin borrow one of her lolita dresses which turned out to be PERFECT with the house, the white bunny, and the extreme fog. I love to blow out images as it it, but man… This made it too easy!
Here is Jazzy getting ready in the car. We’re fancy like that.
After Jazz was all dolled up, we raided the house, and left with these amazing photos.
She looks so amazing! I love it! And the weather and the lighting… Ah! It’s been a long time since I’ve shot any natural light stuff, but I really dig what we got on this day in January. She was a serious trooper for sitting out in the cold in that dress. Thanks Jazz!
For more Behind the Scenes and a time lapse set to the wonderful weirdness of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, check out this video:
A few more Behind the Scenes. We might be a little out of control.
After we got home, we had a Pikachu party before Jazzy had to head back to Philly. Here is my darling assistant Pipes (looking very happy), and Jazzmin’s assistant Floppy Ears, sporting the Pikachu look.
And that’s it from my fun day with Jazzmin! Remember to check out her modeling page here: Jazzmin Jolly!
Come back and see me soon, you adorable little thing!

Just some shots around the house… Since it’s Mothers Day, here are some photos of my daughter:
An advantage of having a studio in my house..! Here’s me looking foxy:
Haha… kind of a pointless post. Bye!
Oh my goodness. I just LOVE pets. One fun thing about working on a film set is that I get to go around into all of these people’s houses and play with their animals. This is Daisy. She is the most lovely dog that I have ever seen. She is so cute and sweet that I chased her around in the cold rain to snap some photos of her so I can remember her forever. Isn’t she sweet????
Daisy’s Headshot… Sending it off to the studios.. she will be the next big movie dog! She could play a dog or maybe even a…
This kitty was sooooo scared of me!! She saw my camera and would take off running. I don’t know if the big screen is in her future, but she sure is cute!
This handsome little tiger lives with the Beards, the most darling couple I have ever met. This little guy should know us pretty well because we have spent the whole month with Kim & Andy Beard and their little kitties. I can not express how grateful I am to this couple and their feline babies for letting us uproot them for so long. Wonderful, wonderful people.
I hope my adventures continue to bring me in contact with new furry friends because they are often the best kind!!
Hey guys! It’s my cousin Laura’s birthday today!! Happppyyyyyyy Birthdayyyyyyyy toooo youuuu…
For her birthday, she wanted a photoshoot of her adorable cat, Jezebel. Quite a convenient thing that her cousin is a pro photographer… 😉
Happy birthday, sweetheart.

I am sure it comes as a HUGE shock to you guys (not) that I saw Lady Gaga’s show when she passed through Charlotte on Saturday night. My beautiful boyfriend got me tickets for my birthday back in May.. a gift that is fun to receive much later! Anyway, after we got ready to go, we had some time to kill. Since my studio is in our house…. here ya go.
