studio portraits for Fire Tiger Band

This week I got to meet and take head shots for a band straight out of the 80’s called Fire Tiger.  If you closed your eyes and listened to their music, it’s like stepping back in time.  Some of my favorite bands growing up were Pat Benatar, Blondie and Heart.  Listening to Fire Tiger’s music seriously take’s me right back to then.  It was awesome to get to meet and hang out with such talent.  Check them out at Fire Tiger Music.

beauty portrait

I’ve known Jessica since she was 17. Luckily, I have gotten to photograph this beauty over the years and I have to say, she gets more beautiful with each passing year. I wanted to give Jessica a fresh, natural look that really highlights her gorgeous natural beauty.

beauty test with sterling

Simple, beauty test with the gorgeous grey eyed, Sterling. The first look I wanted to do a simple, gorgeous beauty makeup- just fresh and clean. Then, we smoldered it up a notch with some black eyeliner and smoky lids. Love this simple, studio shoot for head shots and beauty.

studio fashion test with nathan

This kid has just started his journey as a model. I think he really has a career in ANYTHING he wants… such a quirky, interestingly insightful and “beyond his years” young hunka-hunka-burnin love….. For this shoot, I wanted to focus on a more catalog feel. Simple and clean to really focus on bringing out the personality of the clothing… oh, and that cute boy wearing it!
