I have always wanted to try my hand at a Pin Up Shoot. So my stylist, Carmen from Salon 649 in Hammonton, NJ, said she would do the hair and makeup. And our friend Ruby said she would model. One Atlantic was so kind to let me use their amazing facility as a location for the shoot.
Thank you all for your help, expertise, and time. I think it was well worth it!
I'm sure you all saw the sneak peak image from my stylized shoot with Pink Dahlia Vintage, a local florist.
Sally, owner of Pink Dahlia Vintage, is so very talented. She is the florist for my wedding coming up in November. So when she asked me to photograph some bouquets and centerpieces for her, I immediately agreed.
Jessica Kennedy agreed to model for us that day. Well, it was January and we had no idea what the weather was going to bring. However, we got no snow, a cold but sunny day. Everyone tolerated the cold and we were able to get some stunning images of Sally's amazing talent. Her arrangements and bouquets were rustic and vintage (hence the business name) and absolutely wonderful.

In efforts to make good use of the beautiful weather, we traveled to Philadelphia today and photographed, Dustin. We walked all over the city showing Dustin, a Wisconsin native, the sites while photographing him in several locations. My favorite area was at City Hall. The lighting was beautiful and cast a hint of a shadow that really brought out the skin tones. Also, the architecture was a nice contrast to the black suit he wore.
And, of course, what is a great photo shoot in Philadelphia without great food? Incomplete I tell you. We stopped off at Good Dog to end the perfect session.
Thanks Dustin, we both had a great time photographing you.
My associate, Dennis, and I got to photograph a first time model this past Wednesday in Atlantic City, NJ. Stela brought several changes of clothing so we had plenty to work with in the different settings we chose. The focus of our shoot was in the casinos, mainly Bally's, Wild Wild West, and Caesar's. We all had a blast and encountered curious passer-bys watching what we were up to. Stela felt like a celebrity with two cameras photographing her while she posed. The three of us plan to do more shoots in the future.
