Kristen Pilgrim joined us right quick after her headshot session to model for our 7th Masque session! We are eternally grateful for her being available to join us on short notice and for her awesome presence. Kristen is a fantastic actress and actor/combatant, and we certainly played to her strengths in the studio. We hope to get her back in the studio soon!

Last week Abbi and I were honored to be part of the wedding of Rachel and Frank. Held at Rachel's grandmother's house in Virginia, the day was a delightful, casual affair. Surrounded by friends and family, these two tied the knot on a beautiful (if a wee bit hot) fall day. We wish Rachel and Frank the best on all their future endeavors.

Great news! I was just informed that we earned a runner up position on Viewbug! for their 300 Tattoos Contest, we snagged the number 2 spot! That's wonderful! I couldn't be happier. Big thanks to Lexie for her obviously incredible contribution to this image and also thanks to Abbi for her amazing hair and makeup work on that day.
The great story behind this image is that it was really a happy accident. Lexie was lying there and I had crossed behind her to adjust the lights, and I was crossing back when I saw this image/angle and asked her to pose real quick. I snapped a few at this set up, then went back to shoot her in profile. I'm glad this angle caught my eye, it's really a stellar shot.
For all the details on the contest and to see the other (frankly, amazing. I'm honored to be in such esteemed company,) contest winners, check out Viewbug's Blog here: http://blog.viewbug.com/300-tattoos-photo-contest-winners/

Emily, hot on the heels of her Red Dress shoot, was back in the studio with us to help us with our sixth Masque shoot. We took things in a very different direction this time, using a hood from my Renn Faire costume and a leather hero mask I'd had for years. As much as I love the glamorous Mardi Gras style masks we've done before, it felt like it was time to try something different. The hood gave us some wonderful shadows to play with and Emily was, as always, on point with her modeling. She brought such a wonderful energy and came up with some amazing poses, it made my job very easy. Every shoot with Emily has been a joy and this one was no different.
