Commercial Fashion Shoot for Duende Decor Spring Line Release


Commercial Fashion Shoot for Duende Decor Spring Line Release

A Fashion Designer and Etsy Shop Owner looking to make big impact with the release of her new Spring Line.

We travel to a tropical wonderland to give her
unique images sure to sell. 

Photoshoots at Belle Isle Conservatory.jpg

   Let me start out by making a list.
   I’m jealous of Tiffany for the following reasons:
1- She’s a fashion designer (doesn’t that just sounds so friggin chic to say!?)
2- Kinda off topic, but.... She has long gorgeous hair (hopefully me if I keep growing my hair out for 10 years!)
3- She’s got adorable friends who also model
4- She runs an Etsy shop (this one really hits my jealously bone!)
5- Annnnndddd she just released her 2018 Duende Decor Spring Line   

Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way.
   Tiffany, the Owner of Duende Decor, and I met up mid winter to start planning the launch or her Spring / Summer line! I LOVE fashion! It’s one of my fav things to photograph, so that’s why every shoot we do comes with Style Guidance and has that fashion flare to it because I’m obsessed with looking at magazine ads and just want to help my clients shine on that same level.
   Tiffany came with an Inspiration Board to show me when we discussed her Professional Branding Shoot. It was full of tropical plants and fun colors. Not gonna lie, I had a silent freak out. Where was I going to find a tropic oasis with snow on the ground!? And if shot indoors how many backdrops would I have to buy so it wasn’t horribly repetitive!?
   I always give myself some time to brainstorm alone before telling the client exactly what we are doing, and within a couple of weeks it hit me, I knew exactly where we would go!
   I ran my vision past Tiffany and told her if she was willing to go on a little trip I had the PERFECT location.
   The day of we made the 70 mile drive to the big City of Detroit to photograph HERE!
   8 kimonos, 3 natural beauties, and 1 hour later we walked away with fresh images straight out of a Spring Catalog.

Yas Queens, Yas, we did it.

Celebrating her Beauty with a Photoshoot

Celebrating 20 years of life

Celebrating her body and her confidence

detroit michigan boudoir photographer high fashion photshoot beauty sexy glamour body love .jpg

   Twenty. 20.
   It's a number that's all of exciting, terrifying, and validating. Turning 20 releases you from your teens, springs you into pure adulthood, but also still leaves you young.
   This is Brooke on THE DAY she turned 20.
   I met Brooke a couple of years ago. She messaged me saying she loved to model and wanted to build her portfolio with me, so she booked a shoot and together we did a stunning night shoot and artistic / vintage indoor shoot.
   When she got a hold of me earlier last year saying she wanted to do ANOTHER shoot, I was SO excited! I LOVE working with out of the box people. Since the last shoot she moved to Grand Rapids, so we did all of our meetings over facebook messanger video chat.
   The thing I remember most from that conversation was her saying, "I'm so excited. I just really need a day like this, for me." It stuck out to me because the experience of her getting photographed was just as exciting to her as the portraits she was going to be getting back, which is pretty much my goal. To gift an experience, memoriesAND beautiful portraits that will outlive you.
  It was the morning of, waking up with no stress because hair and makeup was going to be totally taken care of for her, showing up here with her boyfriend and us just cranking the music, having a dance party, and photographing her and how amazing she looked while doing it. It was the custom set we built for her and then encircling her with greens, tule, and fog from dry ice to make her look like a mystical princess. It was ALL of that that made the day great.
   When she came back to the studio for her viewing she then told me about her deeper reason for doing this... that at age 20 she finally felt comfortable and extremely confident in her body and her skin, and she wanted to celebrate that for herself. I don't know if you've ever read MY blog / self portrait session on this EXACT subject, but THAT is what makes me tick, THAT is what makes me get up in the morning- when women STOP saying sorry, STOP being shy, and embrace who they are, are proud of who they are, and they live life and feel good for THEM, and no one else.
   For her viewing she brought her mom, which after you view the rest of her portraits below you can imagine how hard it was for her to see her baby girl all grown up, and she asked, who are you going to show these to? To which Brooke replied- MYSELF! I did this for myself, I just want to look at ME- LOOK AT ME! AH! To know that her and I could work together to give her that moment makes me know I'm where I should be.
   Ladies- You deserve to know what that feels like. Allow Brooke to inspire you and do something great for yourself, so you have images to look back on when you're 60 from when you turned 20 and can say- Damn. That's ME. LOOK AT ME! And I've only gotten better from that day forward. Start a Revolution for yourself!

Dancing at sunrise

A dynamic dance shoot

port huron michigan professional dancer photographer ballet photographer beauty dancer.jpg

   Hannah has been dancing longer than some of my clients have been alive. That's when you know you LOVE something. Your whole life is about it.
   She is following her passion and perusing a career as a Professional Dancer. Nothing makes me happier than watching someone embrace what they were truly meant to do with their life!
   She told me finding a photographer that could give her the full impact of movement she was looking for in her images was a challenge, and that she was so happy to find me. It's the connections like that in life and at AJBC that I live for! So we put our passions together and created something Natural. Beautiful.
   Natural Beauty.
   It was important for her to also include nature. Obviously, if you've seen my work, you know I agree. So my team and I pushed ourselves and our limits in order to make Hannah's session magical, professional, and over the top.
   So take a look and see how we incorporated EVERY Earthly element into her session- Wind, Water, Fire, Earth. It was beautiful to watch Hannah move gracefully through all of it.

A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

saying "i do" with flapper dresses and moonshine

port huron michigan wedding photographer vintage wedding.jpg

    Erica and Cory. They are nothing short of perfect for each other. They are the definition of soulmates. And they are 2 of the kindest, most caring, creative people you will ever meet. And always happy. They are always smiling.

    Diamonds, feathers, teacups, and cupcakes. Flapper girls and classy women.

   Moonshine, cigars, suspenders, and bow ties. Prohibition men and trouble making boys.

   This is the world you are about to step in to and it’s nothing short of fabulous. It’s above and beyond what you ever envision on your wedding day, or any day. It’s a beautifully choreographed day of love put together by the two main stars of the night.

   This was such a magical day to be a part of, and let’s be honest, it’s 100% a photographer’s dream. This is the stuff magazines and Pinterest is made of! This is the wedding everyone wants and tries for but falls short because they don’t pay close enough attention to details or they are just not willing to put their all into everything they do.

   This was 8 hours of dress up, 8 hours of fun and games, 8 hours of stepping back in time and celebrating love, sass and class with laughing, crying, dancing, drinking, and beautiful stories being shared.

   Now watch as we tell you their story through photographs-
