Danielle x Pinup Portraits


Today was pretty exciting creatively. I asked my coworker Danielle a while ago if she’d be interested in being my muse for a photography shoot and after seeing my recent pinup style pics, she said yes.

We both did her makeup, although she let me do the contouring and such. I enhanced contouring in Photoshop to give her face more of that pop! But to be honest, she didn’t really need it anyway. She has the right kind of planes and angles to be a proper model, IMO. Anyway, here’s a few shots from today.

I used my 50mm portrait lens, ISO 400, f 1.8, exposure range 50-80.



Split Ends


I searched my archives tonight looking for something good to post because I felt photographically frustrated today while trying to make some new content.

I ran across an old selfie photoshoot I did last year around February and decided I’d utilize my new Wacom tablet and re-edit one of the pictures. I just tweaked some minor stuff, fixed some blemishes, used a different Photoshop action. I like the final product.

I’m weeping inside at the split ends you can see in this picture though. My hair has really come a long way in almost 2 years – THANK GOD. Also, I feel like I may have shared this photo previously. In a set. Because it’s saved as a set as well. Oh well. Double dose it is.


Ginger Sunrise


It’s Selfie Saturday and I’m currently at a wedding so this is queued!

I got my hair done freshly ginger last week so I’d look fantastically redhead for today and of course I had to take some photos. I mean, duh.


Middle Part


Heyyy it’s Selfie Saturday.

I was feeling pretty and self-confident a few days ago and decided to take some pictures while there was still light out. Here’s one of the results!




Besides getting a nice tan going, gorgeous weather, and all-around warmth, summer is my favorite season because it gives me freckles. I really enjoy getting freckles on my nose for some reason.

This is a picture I took last year with my 50mm lens after I’d played around with makeup. I was hoping to capture the makeup, but I ended up being more intrigued by the freckles.
