DC Actor Headshots

Hey everyone! Meet Tyler! He is an aspiring actor from Virginia who contacted me looking to update his headshots. He came out to see me in DC and we did a quick mini-session this afternoon for some fantastic results!

I couldn’t help but grab a shot of Tyler looking all fly with his Vans on. Too cute!

Love it! Good luck with your casting this weekend, Tyler! 🙂 Don’t forget me when you’re famous!

Tim J’s Headshots

Hey guys! Meet actor Tim J.! He is a young up and coming star and a blast to be around. On Sunday, we got to hang out and knock out some shiny new headshots. Check them out! These are some of my personal favorite headshots/portraits I’ve done to date, so I hope you guys like them as much as I do!

And just for a little stylistic fun, we threw in these shots too!

After the shoot, we hung out at my place and played Mario Kart 64. If you think you can beat me, you are sadly mistaken! Dibs on Bowser!

Jordan and the Cherry Blossoms

Hey guys! After a fashion-hiatus, I am back and stronger and more inspired than ever. Winter is over and I’m ready to kick spring into gear with shoot after shoot after shoot. The next few weeks are going to be crazy busy with shoots, so make sure you check this blog often! I wanted to kick off the madness with a shoot that I’ve been planning for weeks. Let me introduce Jordan Michelle!

Jordan and our team of hair/makeup and stylists killed it tonight! I’m so glad we got to rock the cherry blossoms in a fashion forward way. Enough chatter… Let’s get to the goods!

Kaitlin Davin

Hey guys!! I am VERY, VERY excited to release to you the photos from my photoshoot last week with the incredibly talented Kaitlin Davin. She is an extremely beautiful person and an amazing dancer. I can’t rave about this girl enough! I had such a great time hanging out with her for this fun shoot, mixing in headshots, fashion, and dance.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of studio, so I figured we would just take a few headshots on a gray backdrop and then hit the streets. Kaitlin jumped right in and NAILED it on one of the very first shots. Doesn’t she look like a covergirl model?! Gorgeous.

Out to the streets! This girl loves Beyonce as much as I do, so I LOVED jamming to B on location. So great.

^Love that shot! One of my personal favorites of mine. ❤

Oh! I should also mention that it was near freezing that day! We had to stick close to the house so we could keep going in and warming up. Insanity. Kaitlin was a champ, though!

I just love how her body curves with the arch. I love shooting dancers!

LOVE THIS SHOT SO MUCH! Ugh.. I just love this whole session. I can’t pick a favorite shot!

Great attitude! So pumped on these! Isn’t her outfit perfect??

Allllright, I know this was a long post, but that’s a wrap on Ms. Kaitlin Davin. Keep an eye on this one… She’s got a bright future!

Jazzmin Jolly as Tifa Lockhart

Jazzmin Jolly, everyone!
Jazzmin is a model from Philly that shares mutual friends with me in North Carolina. I’ve been following her work for months now and it made me so happy when she contacted me to shoot together! She has been wanting to shoot her favorite cosplay, Tifa Lockhart! As Tifa’s character is generally set in a church, I knew the most awesome, badass, perfect place to shoot. Check out what we got!

Ahhh I love these so much! Okay, so it’s December in Washington, DC. Soooo after about 30 minutes, we took it inside because it was freeeeezing! So here are a few shots that we did in the studio of Jazzmin’s Tifa cosplay.

SO loving these! And just for fun, since we both have Gothic Lolita Wigs‘ Long Straight 2-tone Chocolate/Blonde wig, I jumped in there with her for this cute shot. 🙂

I love this cute girl!
