Halloween Themed Photo Shoot. Five Witches.

Halloween Themed Photo Shoot. Five Witches.

Witch is your favorite? It started as one model… simple. Then I had two, and then three. At this point I had decided to do a sort of boho-witch theme. I began researching costumes and culture. I discovered that in the Wicca belief system, each point of the pentagram represents an element. Air. Spirit. Earth. Fire. Water.

Now I had to have five models.

Honestly, I had no idea what working with a snake would look like. I assumed that I would just let Spooky do her thing and we would hope for the best. She did not disappoint. Nicole was so gentle with Spooky, directing her but never forcing her to do anything she did not want to do. My priority when shooting with animals is to make sure they are treated with respect, in an ethical manner. Spooky's comfort and safety was more important to both of us, than having a successful shoot.

Model Shoot. Northwest Ohio.

Most of the time I am shooting for my job. I take portraits or I am documenting a commercial business. While all of my paid shoots involve my personal creativity, there are definitely expectations to get certain poses, light styles, a specific look. I am very happy to accommodate all of these things and often I also get to play a little for myself, but there is something truly refreshing about creating something just for yourself. No expectations except your own.

Toledo Ohio. Princess Shoot. Oak Openings Preserve.

Model Debbie Altman is a Princess...

I found out that Debbie was interested in pursuing some modeling and I jumped at the chance to do a personal project with her! I love doing themed shoots. Anything artistic that tells a story makes my creativity spike! I did some brainstorming with Debbie and we came up with the idea to do a princess outfit. 

I have been slowly exploring the parks in the Toledo and Bowling Green area. I had not gotten the chance to do any photos at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark so I suggested we have an adventure and try it out. Debbie was in!

On the day of the shoot, my lovely assistant, Jessica, and my talented Makeup Artist sister, Rachel, joined us in preparing Debbie for her debut. Hair was curled and braided, foundation was applied and diamonds were donned. Debbie looked like a true princess. We had a great time, despite some chilly temperatures!

I hope you enjoy this magical story as you scroll through these photos!
