Ok… ok… So people have been asking where are all these pictures from a Very Productive Party??

I promise I’m working on it! A site will be released soon.
In the mean time, check out this lovely lady. Again, the location at Ginger was so conducive to great shots. (I’ve mentioned in previous postings, I’m not a big fan of the paper or muslin back drops).
photo geek note–When shooting I balanced my strobe with Ambient light by lowering my shutter speed to get a really warm and moody effect…and then in post (just to stylize these a little) I desaturated slightly and split toned.

ALSO!!! The WINNER of the Head Shot is Hannah from


A very productive party indeed
