The team at Cats Like Us came to me with the idea to do a take on the “awkward family photo” for their holiday postcard. We did a shoot in my studio with the shop owners Julie Ann and Andrew and their sales associate Meagan but since the store is called Cats Like Us, the cats had to be involved too! I had photographed them before and they did not enjoy the experience. So to make things easier on them I came over to Julie Ann and Andrew’s house to photograph their cats as they lounged around their home. Since all we needed were good shots of their cute faces, this approach worked well!
For Calvin’s one month portraits we shot in my studio. We were hoping Calvin would just snooze right through the photoshoot but he was wide awake for most of it. After a few shots he was not having it anymore so mommy had to comfort him. This was sort of a stroke of luck as some of my favorite shots from the shoot were of Calvin being held.
This is one of my favorite fashion editorials! I shot this cover and fashion editorial for the Summer 2015 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine. Meagan Hendrickson of Coffin Kitsch was fashion stylist and we worked with pieces from Heavy Red, Widow, and a few other awesome designers. Looking back through this editorial just makes me want to get out there and shoot more fashion editorials outside and in nature this summer!
Over the last year I had the chance to photograph Calvin every month as he grew up. I really enjoy doing baby portraits but it was especially fun doing them with the same baby every month. After a year worth of photos, we had a beautiful collection of images! These are a few of my favorites from Calvin’s Newborn photoshoot.
I shot the Must feature for the Summer 2015 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine. Guy William Gane III modeled our must-have summer item, the Boardshort. I have had the pleasure of working with Guy a few times in the past and he is one of my favorite models in the Buffalo area to work with. We did this shoot on location with Lake Erie in the background.
