Miss Lolita Marie is full of surprises! She’s a pro makeup artist, she does her own hair and styling, her face is incredibly emotive and she know her posing very well. You cannot ask for a more well-rounded model to work with. Even with all of that know-how, she’s still one of the most professional and humble people I’ve ever shot with. She shows up ready to work and will work with you to get the shots you need. Head to her website- http://www.littlemisslolita.com and book this woman! You can also head to her Instagram- http://www.instagram.com/la.la.lolita to give her a follow and check out a ton of her shots!

I hope everyone has had a productive and stress-free work week. Go into the weekend with peace and joy!

This woman is amazing! She’s super talented, is a model, a hair and makeup artist and an actress as well. And she’s damn good at what she does. Look at her hair and makeup.. C’mon. Her poses and expressions are incredible as well. When you work with her you get a full packaged deal and she’s still very polite, humble and professional. I can’t wait to work with her again.

It’s amazing what golden-hour light can do to a subject! It’s fleeting. It can be overpowering. It can be intimidating to work with. With all the things that can go wrong with this very limited window of amazing light, so many things can go unpredictably right. I did not imagine any of these shots would come out this way. I had already successfully shot golden hour photos in the past. With those photos, I had a kind of vision in mind and when we attempted it, the results were mostly what we’d thought they would be.

In this instance however, I had no idea how the shots would come out and I really disliked the idea of shooting in such an overpowering light scenario this day. Fortunately, we did the shoot anyway. We ended up coming away with something magical!ย  I also learned something about different ways to light people.

I say all this to say that if you have room for it, allow your creativity to run rampant once in awhile. Have fun creating and collaborating. You’ll surprise yourself sometimes. Sometimes things won’t go your way and that’ll be disappointing but, other times you get shots that feel like once-in-a-lifetime shots. It is incredibly difficult to replicate golden-hour shots because the sun needs to be at a position that it’s in only one time per year and if you have any precipitation that day or cloud cover…..well, you don’t get your shots.

I may go more into that but, that will definitely be another post at another time in the future. Anyway.. go enjoy your well-deserved weekend off if you happen to be off on the weekends!!

Wednesday. Time to think on it, maybe.

Halfway through the work week. It may be time to just pause and contemplate for a second or maybe take a breather. A lot of time we forget to stop and remember the good things we have going on for us. It’s times like this that I’m grateful for having photography as a creative outlet. It helps me focus and realign my energy in ways that are useful to me. It also allow me to put energy into something outside of myself and get that much needed separation from other things I may have going on my life.

What kinds of creative outlets do my followers and visitors have? I’d like to hear about it in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚
