Executive Headshots With Leo

My friend Leo, a makeup artist who has worked on some of our biggest and most important photo shoots, is a Featured Artist for Estee Lauder and needed an executive headshot for their promotions. I was thrilled for the opportunity and more importantly for him and his success. He really is amazing and a great person!




Dramatic Style Portraits

Leo had a specific request to try the bright, white background look in black and white, for the traditional artist feel. He also wanted to do a more modern business executive headshot for variety. Which do you prefer?

Congratulations Leo!

You really deserve the industry recognition for your amazing talents! Those needing a professional makeup artist for an upcoming event would be well served to look him up.

Stay tuned for more of Leo, on both sides of the camera, in the near future.

Studio Portrait Session with Savannah

While we have become known for my signature fine art portrait lighting, we do actually have a large collection of different looks and styles in the portfolio. This session was intended to showcase a couple of those looks, but I couldn’t resist ending with my signature portrait…more on that later.

Natural Window Light

The baseline of my look, huge, soft, wonderful window lighting. The look I aim to replicate with my studio flash, but with a bit more control of the shadows. We have 9’ windows that span the entire 20’ feet width of my portrait studio here in Mesa and they are covered with sheer curtains to help diffuse the harsh Arizona sun. This soft, dramatic lighting is gorgeous and really adds a specific look to our line of beauty images.




Fashion Portraits

Most everything we do comes from the original inspiration of fashion magazines, we just tend to put a fine art spin on it most of the time. For this set, we went straight for the Vogue 90’s fashion look…creative posing for dramatic lines and angles, combined with this amazing Coachella themed dress and unique necklace from my Wardrobe Stylist Jennifer’s personal collection. Savannah absolutely nailed the look and feel!




Fine Art Glamour in My Shirt

This set was shot specifically for my ongoing themed collection, “In My Shirt”, where we provide my personal white dress shirt and allow the ladies (although I did get Isaac to do a set with it as well) to create whatever look they want to do with it. This is Savannah’s unique interpretation. She elected to add in my completely shredded black jeans and wear the shirt backwards… How cool is that?! I never made either of these items look this damn good!

Fine Art Portrait

Of course I couldn’t let the opportunity pass and not do my signature look with Savannah. Jennifer put together a SoCal meets Grunge look that, as you can see, was amazing. Just add a little of my secret sauce lighting… Gorgeous!

Which is your favorite look from the session?

Fashion Photo Shoot with Models Poppy & Bailey

The dynamic duo! What a photo shoot! Originally Poppy had reached out and wanted to do a fashion shoot with us. She had just completed working the runway at the Phoenix Fashion Show and really wanted to explore building a modeling portfolio. We were looking to put together a 2 model session, so I offered that option, as long as she could recruit a model to work with. She managed to corral an amazing young lady, Bailey, who happens to be represented by the Ford/Robert Black Agency and was an amazing partner for Poppy to flow with.

Fashion Forward

They both rocked the Michael Kors skirt and dresses! What can I say, they were throwing the right mix of attitude and beauty to really make this set pop.

Denim and Tees

We really focused on creating a magazine ad look and feel to this set. We are extremely proud how well these ladies worked to pull it off. It was a lot of fun watching them settle in to their sync with each other, using each other to pose off of… They Crushed It!



Fashion Ad or Movie Poster?

Which do you see? Ok I’m going to date myself a bit here, but personally it reminds me of a 80’s cover from TV Guide, promoting a female police detective drama… Yeah I’m that old, I remember the bulky delivery to the mail box every week. The bible to which you sacrificed your evening schedule…but I digress.





The black jeans and sport coat theme was entirely of my Wardrobe Stylist’s doing. She really out did herself with this one…with so little to work with (but that’s another story I’ll let her tell in the future).

So the black on black on black look was all tied together with a simple, large down light setup. It gave just enough light in the right places to help separate all the blacks and created it’s own unique shadow patterns to accent the theme.

Best of 2019

It’s going to take something really special to top this shoot and we will certainly try…but there is no doubt that this is our most favorite of the year so far. Special thank you to Bailey for agreeing to do the shoot and to Poppy for her work ethic in pursuing this opportunity. We see bright things happening in these girls futures!

The Return of Zari: Fashion Inspired Portrait Session

How many times can we say it… we LOVE having an opportunity to do a portrait session with our favorite little fashion model!



The Casual Look

This has quickly become a go to look for many of our clients and we love it. Whether it’s a fashion shoot or a fine art portrait session, the everyday look works. It creates a reality to an image, a look that we all have in our closet. It shows you as a person.

The High Fashion Lifestyle

In stark contrast to the last look, this glamorous look has an elegance that we all want in our lives. The formal, luxurious, romantic evening out vibe. The strength and elegance makes you stop and look… and maybe daydream of your own experiences and desires.




Classic Black & White

Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter what wardrobe we put Zari in, she is going to look AMAZING. Even in my personal old ripped up jeans and a turtle neck sweater this girl just glows.

The white back ground is how I started my portrait career and frankly I had to start pulling it out again because I missed that clean, classic look. What do you think, keep it or stick with my dark canvas look?





The Sultry Evening Gown

With the double leg slits and plunging neckline, this look was HOT! Yet she put a grace and elegance to this set that really brought it to life.

With her busy modeling career taking her all over the country and to exotic foreign places, we don’t get together as often as we would like. But somehow we always manage to work out our schedules every few months. We are always honored and thrilled to get these opportunities. In looking forward to our next session together, what look do you want to see us put together? We would love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks for sticking around… Here is a little bonus outtake from our portrait session. Totally not scripted or planned, but we thought it showed a side of her the public doesn’t get to see. Cheers!

Studio Glamour Portrait Session with Kristi

It’s always a special treat to have another professional photographer in the studio, someone I can nerd out with and talk about gear and lighting… This time it just happens to be my client. She is a fantastic boudoir photographer that uses natural window light to create her art. Yeah we definitely talked a little shop during her session. But I had to be on top of my game, she would know if I wasn’t.



Man’s White Shirt

Another addition to the ‘In My Shirt” series. Wow, she took it to a whole new level… I guess it was in her wheelhouse.




Fitness Glamour Portraits

This look is starting to gain in popularity with my fitness clients. They want to show off the body that they have worked so hard for, but have grown tired of the same old exercise images or bikini posing that they get requested to do on a daily basis. Here we try to put a fashion spin on things, show the physique but give the “I rolled out of bed like this on Saturday morning” type of vibe.



It Takes Courage to be Glamorous

It takes a certain level of self belief and confidence to do a glamour or boudoir portrait session. You have to own the moment and go all out with the posing. I applaud everyone that has the courage to do it, I wish I did.

I hope you enjoyed what we created. Please send a message and let us know what you think, we would love to hear from you.

Beauty & Glamour Portrait Session with Brittany

Brittany is one of the darlings of Instagram and we have enjoyed having her in the studio a couple of times now. She gets a ton of local amateur photographers that have to do location shoots and in the AZ summer heat, that gets old quickly. So we’ve been her studio of choice when she needs a change of pace. Let’s be honest the cool ac sure beats sweaty mascara running down your cheek.

The Lady in Red

We intentionally went with our charcoal grey backdrop to let that curve hugging red dress be the center of attention…clearly it did it’s job. How amazing does she look?!




What, He Shoots On White too?

Oh yeah…it’s been known to happen from time to time. A classic, beautiful black and white portrait is good for the soul and I could go for a little cleansing right about now.

I’ve been playing with the wrapping light concept, where I shoot the main light from behind the client and allow it to wrap to the front. Very soft, ethereal look that everyone seems to love.





What Portrait Style Do You Prefer?

While most know my signature dramatic look, with the deep, rich shadows, occasionally I like to mix it up and work out other lighting patterns. Drop me note below or on any of my social media and let know what look you would like to see me produce.

Maternity Portrait Session with Alicia

I am always in awe at the beauty of a pregnant woman in the third trimester… The glow that radiates from them is amazing! Having the chance to do a maternity portrait session with a local tattoo and boudoir model was such an honor. With all the photographers that she works with regularly , she chose to work with us to capture this important moment in her life!

 


 High Key Black & White Portraits

We departed from our normal dark & moody lighting and backdrops. Instead we elected to do something more ethereal and dreamlike. We surrounded her in light from behind and to the sides, while leaving enough shadows in the front to give a romantic and moody feel. The monochrome look of the black & white imaginary is a classic and timeless portrait that really adds to the overall feel.



 


 A Pop of Color

To bring another dimension to the session, we decided to do a similar set, but this time in color. With the use of a beautiful cream maternity robe from our collection and lingerie, my stylist put together another soft, gorgeous look that really showcases the beautiful tones of her skin.



Stunning Fine Art with Drama

You didn’t really think I would skip out on my signature look did you?

Another amazing maternity shoot with a beautiful mom-to-be. I look forward to creating something amazing for my next client… how about you?

Dramatic Glamour Portrait Session With Licet

I have created a niche for myself, with the dark, moody and dramatic glamour portraits you have seen me post over the years. Clients, like Licet, call and specifically request that look. For her, the moodier the better…

A successful woman that runs a family mining operation in Mexico and travels the world to sell their rare gems. It was such an honor to have been chosen to create these images, that now are printed and hanging on the wall of her home.




Color or Black and White?

This is always the struggle, which format has the most impact for each image. In this case, Licet specifically requested that we do them in black and white. I told you, for her the moodier the better. The main image above was ultimately done in color, to give Licet a better idea of the potential that this set had. (Guess which one she chose to have printed in our largest size…)

In My Shirt

Those that have been following for awhile recognize the men’s white dress shirt as part of my popular series, In My Shirt (check out the link to see the growing series). Licet also insisted on helping to add to the series with her own sensual look. Since she couldn’t pick just one, she elected to keep them all.






Our Next Portrait Session

She loved her images so much that she has already started working with my Wardrobe Stylist to create a “sexy, high fashion” custom look for her next session. Stay tuned, I’ve got a feeling the next one is going to be hot!

Portrait Session with ASU Tennis Star Amanda

The first year of college can’t be easy… a thousand miles from home, no friends, heavy course load and competing at a new high level of tennis with all the other former high school stars. To commemorate the survival of her Freshman year, young Amanda decided to come in for portrait session.



The Vanity Fair Look

We put together this editorial styled theme, something that you might find in the popular Vanity Fair magazine.

Next Session Plans

We have already laid out the concept for a dramatic silhouette session for her return this fall. We figured we would build a look around her tennis gear… Stay tuned for that session. It should be amazing!

Studio Fashion Glamour Session with Alondra

The dark & moody look is my specialty and Alondra wanted that feel to her portraits. This is one of the sets we put together for her. We love the glamorous, romantic mood that these images portray.

 


 

That subtle, deep red tone in the background was the perfect touch to bring everything together.
