From Fairy Princess to Super Sexy Femme Fatale

Hey guys! I have an exciting post for you today! Sweet Trade Photography invited me to shoot some latex outfits from Fetasia Latex and Scarlet Bliss (provided by Jade) with her earlier this week. I was so stoked to meet alternative model Fate and have the chance to shoot her. This girl can morph from fairy princess to sexy latex femme fatale in a matter of minutes. It was truly amazing to watch this girl work it. We decided to start off with more “normal” looks and progress to the latex shots at the end. Latex is a messy thing to shoot and if you’ve ever done it, you’ll know why we did it last. 😉

I LOVE working with Sarah from Sweet Trade Photography. We have only shot together one other time but I model for her quite frequently. Some of the best shots in my modeling portfolio are from this girl. She makes magic. But it’s so interesting to shoot alongside her because our styles are very different. We can shoot the same subject in the same setting and the same outfit and the images don’t look anything alike. I love that. We even have the same camera. I think that says a lot about artistic style and a photographers eye. Too cool. I also love shooting with Sarah because we get all of these cool Behind the Scenes pictures of us being goofy. Hehe!

Anyway, back to Fate. This first outfit is such a mashup of everyone’s things. Fate had this amazing flowy skirt that we paired with a Victorian-esque corset I brought, shoulder pieces from Amorous Cat’s Attic (provided by Jaded), and a dip into my magic bag of wigs.

Here I am adjusting Fate’s wig. The wig is from Cosplay Wigs USA (available here: CWUSA Curly Blonde). Also, I’d like to clarify that I am not a giant. Fate is just a munchkin. 🙂 xo

After pulling all of our resources together and getting everything all good to go, we went out to the woods in Sarah’s backyard. Time to make some princess magic happen.

Magic. I love it. It feels like she’s out in some far away world… Just a lost princess looking for her way home.

Next up, we stuck with the same kind of innocence of the first set. Fate switched into an adorable little dress, and we switched her into some dark brown long hair (Available here: CWUSA Long Straight Brown).

Haha!! Wig cap alert! Helping Fate get her wig on…. Always funny.

This time we went out to the front yard to grab some shots by some flowers. The sun was in an awesome spot for lens flare, and I am a HUGE sucker for flare if I can get it. So… here ya go!

Yesss! Sun flare love! And can I just point out how well Fate nails “innocent”? Very convincing… 😉

Another Behind the Scenes shot! This is Sarah shooting. She asked me to shake some flower pedals down onto Fate which led to this funny series….

On the way back into the house, the stairs jumped out at me as the perfect background against the dress and Fate’s beautiful pale skin contrasting with her hair and eyes. SO MUCH LOVE.

She is so beautiful!

After this, sweet and innocent time was over. Cue the latex. This black dress is by Scarlet Bliss.

In this Behind the Scenes shot, Sarah knocks out a few with Fate in Gothic Lolita Wigs’ Teal Bob (available here: GLW Teal Bob)

My turn! BAM.

See what I mean about this girl morphing? From super sweet and innocent to drop dead super sexy. Just wow. I am so impressed.

Time to switch into the last outfit. Latex takes some time to get into and get out of, so here is a picture of me and Sarah being silly in the mean time. La la la aaaa.

This latex is from Fetasia Latex (provided by Jaded). The wig is Gothic Lolita Wigs Red/White Split without the ponytails (available here: GLW Red/White Split). We decided to go for a more latex pinup look and I love the results!

Behind the scenes time!

My hair gets really psycho during shoots. There is nothing I can do!

The sun was so awesome that even the iPad (playing some really awesome Destiny’s Child… because who doesn’t love Destiny’s Child?) could catch it!

SO cute. Ah. This is just too much. To wrap up our marathon shoot, here is a lovely/goofy/what? shot of all of us together. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the photos and the behind-the-scenes look at a photoshoot with Alexa Poletti Photography and Sweet Trade Photography. That’s all for now! xo

Sheb the Showgirl

Hey yall! I know I’ve been neglecting the blog (again).. I’ve just been busy! Sorry!!!

Okay, so here is the story about this photoshoot. I found this amazing hat at a consignment store in Florida like a year and a half ago for $15. There’s no way I couldn’t buy it, right? So I got it and have been hanging on to it all this time and have never shot it because I could never think of anyone who could rock it exactly how I wanted. Then I thought of Sheb. Friends from forever ago… She’s beautiful and classic and perfect.

So Subreen met Shelby & me at my house for a midnight photoshoot on Thursday night. Here ya go!
Enjoy the safety chair, grumpy faces, and eyelash boogers!

Final Product awaits!
