I just wanted to Thank all of my wonderful clients, friends, family and everyone else who made 2012 such a wonderful year.

I used to try to do a year end top 10, but I gave up that because I could never narrow it down.  I still can’t, so here are just a FEW favorites from this year:

When I first started planning this shoot, I envisioned lots of drama and shadows.  I think it became more apparent to me after I started adding things to Pinterest.  If you look at the images I pinned, almost every one them had fabulous lighting and shadows.

I think it’s so interesting how different this shoot turned out compared to my normal portraits without even trying really.  I think we all kind of got wrapped up in the location, which really made this shoot.  I absolutely love the mood of these images.

Funny story about the location.  The first time I was here was the day after I had watched one of the “Saw” movies.   One of the buildings immediately reminded me of what could have been in one of those movies.  I told Laura this story when we went to see the location together.  She thought this particular building looked much more “Saw” like.

We started referring to them as “Saw 1″ and “Saw 2.”

“Saw 1″ was the in first post.   This is “Saw 2.”

Again, I cannot thank Laura, Casey, Savannah & Jennifer enough for all the work you each put into this shoot!  You all always manage to make my visions come to life and I love it!

I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that Laura and I (with help from others I will introduce later) have already started planning another styled shoot.  This one will be in the fall.  Any ideas on the theme??  ;)  Leave a comment if you have any guesses!

You may recall that I mentioned in the post of the last styled shoot, that we were already planning another shoot.  The day that I was editing those pictures, I remembered that one of our models, Savannah, was a dancer and how bummed I was that we had run out of time and didn’t capture any images of her dancing.  Then it occurred to me to do an entire shoot around her dancing!  I ran my idea by Makeup Artist Laura Briscoe and she was immediately on board.  Casey Arnold also agreed to do hair again.  Savannah had another dancer friend and voila – we had another styled shoot in the making!

Let me start out by telling you that I like to compare this shoot to “the little engine that could.”  I was so sick the day of the shoot that it’s a wonder that we accomplished what we did.  That being said, I couldn’t be more happy with how this shoot turned out.  As usual, the team that put this together is amazing to say the least and I’m so happy to have had another chance to collaborate with all of them again.  We had a new addition to our little team, dancer/model, Jennifer Hite.  I think it’s safe to say that we didn’t scare her off – I can’t say them same for the location, but that’s a story for another day.  ;)

These shots of Savannah aren’t so much about dance, because the dress limited her leg movement.

She looks so amazing though, that I don’t even mind.  :)

I absolutely love this next shot!  This was actually a test shot.

Seriously, who looks this good during a test shot!

She reminds me of the daytime alter ego of a comic book character!

Don’t ask me why, I have no idea, but that’s what I think of when I see this!  :)

and this is Jennifer – our urban ballerina.  She truly amazes me!

Not only can she pull off the most graceful dance poses, but she

looks so beautiful with every move she makes!

I gotta give tons of credit for the makeup and hair that Laura and Casey did.   The looks these two come up with are breathtaking!!

Obviously we couldn’t have done this without Savannah & Jennifer!   You ladies pulled off the most beautiful moves and really made this shoot come to life!

Even though I was feeling a bit under the weather, the four of you made the shoot so much fun and had me constantly laughing!

While I no longer have my “Janice from friends” laugh, because I have my voice back, I’ll never forget this shoot!  :)

 

This isn’t all – so be sure to come back for Part 2!!
