A few weeks back we had an amazing shoot with my dear friend, Bernadette Bentley. I've known Bernadette for something like 14 years now, but this is the first chance we've had to work together. Visiting the DC area from her home in LA, she was kind enough to find time to meet us in the studio and do some shooting. We did 2 spectacular looks and a Masque shoot, making her our third Masque model.
Our deepest thanks to Bernadette for sharing her time, talent and beauty with us. It was wonderful catching up with her.

Our second Masque shoot was done with the lovely Michele. Michele is a new model with us and I have to say I am thrilled that she agreed to shoot with us. She has a natural grace and presence that was a fantastic addition to our Masque series. She took to the studio space like a pro and we got an impressive number of fantastic photos.
For all the images, check out our Flickr Portfolio.
Expect a second round of photos from that shoot in the near future, we've got a lot of amazing shots. Hopefully Michele will be interested in joining us again for another shoot. We'd love to have her back!
I've had my Flickr account since July of 2009. I was a curious amateur, taking a few steps into the photography world with lots of self portraits and experimental shots. I had time, I had a decent camera and I wanted to make some pretty images.
Since then I've grown by leaps and bounds, gotten a lot of formal and informal training and developed (haha!) a solid base of skills and a style I'm really proud of. While a lot of pros would create a new account and start fresh, I like having my timeline intact. A lot of my early work is silly, rough, perhaps pointless. But it's still my work. It's what got me where I am today.
In recent times, I average between 1500-3000 views a day on Flickr, people visiting and checking out my latest work, or stumbling across something elsewhere and being led there.
I had to laugh when I went to check my account and saw that yesterday I had exactly 5,555 views. Worth noting that. Such a perfect number!
