Glam Shoot - Dallas Modern Beauty Portraits - Dallas, TX Photographer

*I will get better at blogging, I will get better at blogging."  This is a 2017 goal of mine.  Blogging helps my web site get found better on search engines, and provides another outlet for sharing my work!  If you read this I'd appreciate comments to help in this regard! 

I recently had the opportunity to work with four beautiful ladies and a very talented Hair and Makeup Artist, Shea Sweet.  We did some modern beauty portraits (Sue Bryce inspired) at the beautiful Blissful Iris studio in Downtown Dallas.  I wanted to try my hand at some indoor beauty photography.  My in home studio at home is very small (better for babies and small children) so when a fellow photographer let me know her studio was for rent, I jumped at the chance.  

Two of my models were professionals, Jordan Delao and Jessica Serna.  Two were client / friend models, Claire Christensen and Erin Strain.  I wanted to practice posing with people who know how to pose, and with people who don't.   Here are some of my favorites below!  Which one is your favorite?

Fabrication Yard Shootout

Graffiti Yard Shootout

This was such a fun experience.  I, along with one of my very talented photographer friends, Laura Levitan with MOD L Photography, decided to host a shootout for over 30 local photographers.  It was our first time hosting a shootout- it was a lot of work, but a even more fun!  

We had five fabulous models who joined us-  Becky Rinard, Mikaila Schmidt, Jordan DeLao, Ashlyn Lewis, and Caleb Braziel

Anastasia Stratton did an amazing job with the hair and makeup.   We held the even at The Fabrication Yard in Dallas, which is a local graffiti art area.   

Here are some of my favorite images from the event!
