Khrist returns! And she brought a friend! Our dear friend Khrist was on the road again and she was headed through Virginia. We met up with her in Crystal City for a fantastic Gothic themed strobist shoot. Bonus for us, she had her friend and protege, Celena Rayne with her, who sat with us for a few set ups and we got some additional great images of. Be sure to follow both of these wonderful models on their pages to see more of their adventures!
We've always wanted to do a shoot with Ashley, even before we met her in person. Mutual friends brought us together and we couldn't be happier with the results! This was Ashley's first time modeling! In spite of her doubts, we got some amazing images. She's got a wonderful presence about her, gorgeous eyes and is a lot of fun to work with.
We do hope she'll join us again for a shoot in the near future. If the weather stays this nice, hopefully we'll get her into a blue dress somewhere!

Another trip to Union 206, this time with Amanda joining us. Two fantastic looks and beautiful hair and makeup by Abbi, and we left with some amazing images.
Amanda wanted to have some fun and shoot some glamorous, sexy images. So let it be done! A self-proclaimed crossfit junkie, and natural beauty, Amanda is a brilliant model to work with. After her turn with us on Sucker Punched 2, we knew we wanted to shoot with her again, and these results speak for themselves.
As a bonus for us, we had Amanda's daughter Lillian on set to lend a hand and jump in while her mom was changing outfits. This girl is so fantastic, and made me laugh so hard! She's a firecracker, as they say, and such a joy to work with. It's amazing to see how much mother and daughter are alike, especially when you get a certain look from both of them.
I know we'll see a lot more of Amanda and Lillian, but I also hope that *you'll* see a lot more of the two of them in 2016.
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/

Red Dress shoot number four! Meaghan Sniegowski joined us in Fairfax Town Center (...well, first it was Fairfax Corner, then it was Fair Oaks Mall, THEN it was Fairfax Town Center) for a dynomite shoot! Meaghan is in extraordinary shape, and she hit some amazing poses and turned things up for us last night. She looks fantastic and I'm so grateful that she gave us some time before she headed back to college.
Big credit goes to Abbi for another amazing hair and makeup job. Not to mention lots of assists with the lights....it was a bit breezy last night.
As always, the full shoot can be seen up on our Flickr Stream, and stay tuned for a few more images from this shoot in the coming weeks.
Finally got a chance to post shots from my shoot with Olivia last week! Super huge thank you goes out to this amazing young woman, who was free a practically a moments notice. Our original model was unexpectedly called away to an emergency rehearsal, so we got out the Rolodex (not really, we went on Facebook, who still has a Rolodex?) and started seeing who was free. Lucky for us, Olivia had a flexible schedule and was able to meet us for a shoot.
We got some beautiful images, I got to play with some new strobe techniques and a good time was had by all. Another fantastic red dress shoot gets added to the portfolio. For more images from our shoot with Olivia (or more from our Red Dress Series), check out our Flickr Portfolio HERE.
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.

Finally got a chance to sit down and power through our first Masque shoot. It seems like forever since I posted the preview shot.
A huge thank you to our first Masque model, Ally. Ally has worked with us a few times in the past, doing some portrait work and one of our Concrete Elegance shoots. She's a lovely model and we're always thrilled to work with her.
For more images of our shoot with Ally, check out our brand new Masque page.
Expect our next Masque shoot in the next week or so. We've got some fun ideas and we can't wait to see what we can make happen.
Another fantastic shoot with Lexie. She was very excited to do a retro, pinup look and I think we nailed it. She spotted a photo in this style on Instagram, loved it and couldn't wait to get back in the studio. Shooting with Lexie is always an adventure and this time was no different! Thanks to Lexie for her beauty and talent and thanks to Abbi for another beautiful hair and makeup job.
