Burlesque | Chains and Sequins

This burlesque shoot was so much fun, and a great example of turning a bad shoot into a good one!

This shoot was actually supposed to be two looks in one, but the makeup didn’t come out as expected.
Instead of calling it a day, I threw on some sequined lingerie and a new wig to give it another try!

 

So, if something doesn’t go to plan, and things don’t always do so, put something else together and play a little!

Melancholic Witch | Moody Fantasy Portrait

A melancholic witch with flowers, dressed in a shadow of black lace.

 

Wonderful props and costumes can be found everywhere.  Treat yourself to flowers from the market, look for clothes with multiple potential uses.

This lace top is actually a blouse worn backwards.  The backdrop is a scrap of thrifted fabric that was coffee stained and textured with instant coffee.

 

Let’s find what we can and Make It Work.

Love that witch aesthetic and spiritual life.

A witchy life is sometimes simple, sometimes complicated, and sometimes not pretty at all.

As with art and craft, we have to find balance in our life and make time for our work.  What  are you working on better incorporating into your life?

 

However, staged or not, full-time or not, I love that mysterious, magical aesthetic.

What about you?

We all have secrets… We must decide what we share, who we let in, and who we keep in the Shadows…

 

The portrait studio has been upside down lately: dresses in the works on one side, Tarot cards on the other, glitter, sequins, handmade jewelry, hand carved and painted candles… so much to do!

The studio now has a set of Neewer gels for the flashguns!

How excited are we?
