Lisa Noel | Hunt Valley | Fashion Portraits

Session Date: 11.15.09
Location: Hunt Valley, MD

Lisa contacted me a few weeks back through a site to see if I would be interested in working with her. Of course, I was more than happy to work with her, however, I've never done a portrait session before. A week before the portrait, my sister and I were practicing on each other to just get an idea on doing these sessions.

The chemistry is a little bit different compared to shooting couples because there are always interactions with each other whereas a model would need to be a little bit more creative when it comes to poses and such. Even though Lisa was still pretty new to the modeling scene, I'd say from the photos that it wouldn't take too long before she's fully there.

Here are a few shots from the session.





Lisa was really easy to work with and she had these two little dogs that came in and out. We even have a photo op during a break session. =P


Overall I wouldn't mind working with her again. This session was different, because I was free to do any hairstyle or makeup on her as well as freedom to shoot whatever. It's definitely not the typical sessions that I normally shoot, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. =) View full post


Steph & Ray | Wedding | Newton White Mansion

I attended the event as guest and was requested to be at the reception earlier to attend to the bride for any makeup/hair touchups. Since the bride and groom were still out taking portrait photos, I had some time to kill and decided to take some photos while I was there. The most difficult environment to work with is indoor lighting and that definitely post a great challenge for me at the mansion. I don't have an external flash and don't like using the one that's built-in so these photos are non-flashed. =)

Then the bride arrived and started taking her pics.

Then it was time for the reception

This photo was unexpected and I love it when that happens.

The wedding was beautiful and went without a hitch. I had a great time and best wishes to the couple. =)
