Hey guys! It has been a while since I’ve updated.. Things have been crazy for me lately (I feel like I am always saying this!!) between photography and modeling/acting. Seriously guys, I can’t wait to tell you all about what I’ve been up to. Secrets, secrets, are no fun! In the meantime, hop on over to my facebook fan pages and give them a “like”.. I’d really appreciate it!

SO! Now on to why you all are here… drum roll please… Drew Grant!
My buddy from film school turned 24 last week. As a gift to himself, he flew himself up to DC to do a photoshoot with me. It was the best present ever, because its not even my birthday and I got to hang with an old friend. Everyone wins! Not to mention that he is a hottie and is a blast to photograph.
What a great looking guy!
I love the green suspenders!!!
Work that train!
Uh oh… things are heating up!!!
OW OW!!! SOMEONE PUT OUT THE FIRE!
Hahaaa, I had SO much fun having Drew here over the weekend. Now I’m off to North Carolina to do some acting (haha) and shoot some Wrightsville Beach senior portraits.
Thanks again, Drew, and happy birthday!!! Hey gurl!
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!
Oooh, Ice Princess! Subreen and I have decided that we have been working too hard lately and wanted to do a creative shoot to relax and have some fun! We take breaks from work.. by working.. I know, we are obsessed! Can’t hate us for loving our jobs 🙂 So, after we found a night that worked for us, I went in search of a model to play with. That led us to miss Emma Blaney of High Point! She was so much fun! It’s hard to be around new people and be outgoing and chatty but she seemed like she has been friends with us forever. I love models like that!
Subreen started by curling her long, long hair. Then it was makeup time! Because of her super ultra glittery eyeshadow, Sub had Emma lie down on the floor to prevent a huge glitter mess! Haha! I came in the studio and was surprised to see them like that.. so goofy hahaha…
After a while of chit-chatting, video chatting with Genna!, and glittery madness, we got closer and closer to shooting. Time to prep my camera for the shoot.. I obviously wanted to use a cooler color temperature to portray this lovely “Ice Princess”.
Alright! We are ready! Hopped in the studio, set LR3 to tether the shoot so Subreen can watch (a new addition to my studio life, woohoo!), and off we go!

Thanks again, Emma! You were such a delight!
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!

I do plan to return to these when I am all caught up with my clients, heh… I love these though.. I can’t wait to revisit them! Here is a bonus picture of my two hunny bunnys:
Arsenio! Incredibly awesome makeup by Genna, incredibly awesome model Arsenio totally workin’ it… This is going to be a long post because I really, really love this shoot.
I think it speaks for itself so I’m not going to sit here and jabber all day. He wanted a mix of gritty and glamourous.. love it.
Gaga..oh la la!
Time for a wardrobe change!
Hello, hello, hello! Another studio update for you guys!
This is Holly Gardner rocking out a catalogue look for some new promo pics for herself.
Ch-ch-check it out!
Hahaha… Ok, so just for fun, Genna decided to be a tough rockstar and put a funny hoodie on her new puppy. So she came on over to my studio, blasted some Rihanna for the sassy attitude, and here are the results…
New puppy, new puppy!!
Last night, my twin sister, Genna, got a brand new little puuuuupppyyy and it is the cutest damn thing. Oh man… wheeee! She is a little bundle of energy. She can’t quite walk right yet so she falls over a lot and kind of bounces from place to place really quickly. It’s sooo silly. Genna left me to babysit the new pup while she ran to the store to get some necessities for the little thing. I bet you can guess what that means?? She came home to some nice, shiny new photos of her brand new baby.
Yesterday, I shot some headshots for the wonderful DaNae West. She is a talented actress out of the Raleigh area with years of experience under her belt and a young fresh face. I am pleased to have worked with her.. she was on Sabrina!!?! Heck yeah, loved that show…
Ok, anyway.. DaNae drove all the way from Raleigh for her shoot. We were so bummed when we woke up that day that it was cold and RAINY. So when we got to our location in NoDa (Charlotte, NC), we took a quick rain delay and popped into the FABULOUS 24hr French bakery, Amelie’s. MMMMM… After some pastries and some hot lattes, off we went.
Yours truly knocking some shots out in front of a graffitied construction wall in NoDa. What a dreary day… >.<
She was really toughing it up in that tank top.. you can see from my fuzzy jacket how cold it was. What a trooper!
And the results! Here ya are!
Really behind in this blog already, great…
I have much more to post, but they each deserve their own posts, and when I get a second to breathe (have been shooting almost every day..busyyy!), I will give them each their own.
But tonight, we are starring the lovely Miss Genna Poletti, who also happens to be my twin sister.
Check out some shots from her Gaga-esque photoshoot!
