kate | louisville

after many years of talking about it, i finally got to shoot with you!

this was a super easy-going and fun shoot and a great break from the stress that had been plaguing me at the time. i edited half of this set in black and white because i thought the emotion had a stronger communication with the redaction of color.

chairs | louisville

imagine: two well-dressed, high class people walking home when they come across four glorious, abandoned recliners.

this shoot was the second shoot where i had a full, conceptualized idea about the theme and colors i wanted to emanate. the location was too awesome not to jump in and be a model myself.

color: earth tones (blue, green, tan)
look: industrial, abandoned
conversation: contrast, class

thanks for sharing this location with me, doc

ruby | red

a sam meyer’s cleaners recently went out of business in my neighborhood and when i saw that the light up sign was on the ground, i immediately knew i had to shoot with it. i had a feeling it wouldn’t be there for long so i called up my friend and we shot the next day. spoiler alert: the sign’s still there.

this is my very first shoot where i had a conceptualized idea of how i wanted the shoot to look. this shoot was also shot entirely through a brown, plastic grocery bag!

color: red, gold
look: grunge, decrepit; superstar
conversation: duality, contrast

hanson | philadelphia

while in philadelphia for a conference, i had the opportunity to photograph some lovely individuals. 

this is probably one of my most favorite photo sets to date; i had so much fun editing these photos. the entire set was shot on the steps in the convention center and the televisions' reflections set the color scheme. while editing, i definitely wanted to bring up the highlights but also keep some very nice darks. the overall set has a cool tone but if you look carefully, you can find a hint of warmth.

august | philadelphia

while in philadelphia for a conference, i had the opportunity to photograph some lovely individuals. my last photoshoot was with august and the main goal priority was to take some nice headshots. the weather was very iffy so we stayed in the convention center, our first location being the stairs and then adventuring up to the second floor.

thomas | philadelphia

while in philadelphia for a conference, i had the opportunity to photograph some lovely individuals. this photoshoot with thomas was shot right in the middle of the day and the weather's constantly changing sun rays was both annoying and challenging. based on his shirt, i decided to keep neutral and earth tones with a hint of grunge.

this little pup was the perfect model for me to test out my new camera's action photography capabilities! i'm super happy with the camera's performance and can't wait to use it more!

meaghan | louisville

during the springtime, small yellow flowers bloom all over cherokee park. there is a specific group of secluded flowers, tucked in the woods, that i have been dying to shoot in since i first stumbled upon them. turns out that they only bloom in the spring and i missed my chance. here's looking forward to next year!

my lovely best friend and i hiked around in the sweltering heat to find something to shoot in and this is the aftermath. honestly, really liking some of these photos and i hope you do too!

while on break from her tour, ms. heather larose stopped into the store to do a quick shoot with us. this was the first shoot i did with someone who had more experience in model photography than me and i learned so much.
