L'Affaire Editorial Shoot

This weekend my team and I decided to do another editorial. This shoot was originally supposed to be a fun test shoot with a model but turned into a full-blown editorial! This was my second time styling an entire shoot, which you may know, stresses me out! However, I was able to pull clothes for the shoot in only 30 minutes before the day of the shoot, which I still can’t believe happened...

 Once again, I was up at the crack of dawn piling all of my equipment into my car, which takes about an hour and a huge toll on my weak kitten arms (especially those C-Stands). Once I got to the studio there went another hour or so setting up all of my equipment while June got started with Cherish’s makeup and hair. We shot 6 different looks for the story. I decided to go with an olive green/tan color scheme and threw in a few edgier shots at the end. Since we shot this in the early morning into early afternoon, the studio was already very well lit so I just needed to a bit more lighting to make the photos extra sharp. Her skin and hair went perfectly with the colors I chose and overall was really thrilled with the outcome of the shoot!

Can’t wait to show you all!

Elléments Magazine Fashion Editorial - BTS

This month has been very busy for me as I am attending the University of Central Florida full time, and shooting every week. This week I shot an editorial with my lovely model, Katelyn Wilson, and extremely talented makeup/hair stylist Shannon Miller.

 

To begin, I didn’t realize that I planned the editorial for the night of the super bowl. That was a mistake on my part... oops. However, these ladies pulled through and we got some amazing shots. There was a lot of prep that came into this shoot. I put a mood board together and Shannon and I talked hair and makeup to figure out the right mood for the shoot. Shannon is a pleasure to work with as she has work in this industry for over a decade. She isn’t afraid to give me feed back of what is working and what isn’t, which I really appreciate because I love getting different opinions on set. I have worked with Kate before on an A’GACI collaboration and loved her fresh face. She is super sweet and is really reliable which I really appreciate. 

 

I ended up styling the shoot... uh oh. Actually, I am quite proud of myself. I pulled a lot of clothes from a bunch of different stores. I wanted to get pieces that fit the mood of the shoot I was imagining. The shoot didn’t last as long as normal, as we knocked it out pretty fast. I got some very dramatic pictures, especially when Shannon help me get some movement in the shot by added some wind from a fan... aka leaf blower. Overall, this shoot was a bunch of fun and I am excited to work with these ladies once again.

Elegant Magazine Beauty Editorial - BTS

As things begin to slow down after the holidays, I have wanted to do a fun editorial to freshen up my portfolio. Planning editorials is a lot of work as they require a significant amount of time that is spent coming up with the locations, finding a model who will fit the part, pulling clothing from different designers, and the hours spent shooting the editorial and changing looks in between. Typically an editorial is around 6 looks with a continuous theme (makeup or clothing). Recently, I had a makeup artist, June Ellis, contact me about wanting to shoot and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to shoot something fun! As we went back and forth deciding what we wanted to shoot, we finally decided on a beauty editorial. I love to keep all my photos fresh and natural and June also loved the idea, making us the perfect team. Next, we needed to figure out our model. We decided to use a model, McKenna Tag (Benz Tampa), which June had previously worked with in the past.

 

I was super excited for this shoot because it was my first time using a two light set up in the studio. This past year, I have only had one strobe to work with so I loved the extra source of light, especially since we shot through the night, making the natural light constantly change in the studio. With this particular shoot, I used two strobes with a large octabox diffuser that lit the backdrop, and a beauty dish above the model. I shot this editorial in a naturally lit room from about 12:00pm-6:00pm. We did 6 different looks that the stylist (and my sister), Emilee Krick, picked out for us. She did an amazing job giving us plenty of pieces and accessories to work with. We decided to go with a very feminine theme with pastel colors and shot with a few roses that we incorporated throughout the shoot. I shot this editorial with my 5D Mark 3 camera and my lovely 85mm F1.8 lens. This is my basic go-to lens for most of my shoots. The backdrop was originally a sky blue but I planned to change it to a light lavender color post shoot.

 

This was by far the most relaxing editorial that I have ever shot. Since we shot in studio, there weren’t any time limitations. June does an amazing job on set and helps give me ideas that I am able to bring to life. She is very relaxed and confident in her work, as she has done hair and makeup for numerous celebrities, including Ciara, Bella Thorne, Pitbull, Serena Williams, Victoria Justice, and many others. Our model, McKenna Tagg moved extremely well and was able to give us a variety of different shots. This shoot surpassed my expectations and I am super excited to show you all the photos!
