Calling all vintage vixens! La Photographie specializes in Hollywood Glamour-style portraits. Inspired by the portraits of George Hurrell taken for MGM in the 1930s and 40s, the Hollywood Glamour portrait is edgy and sexy with gorgeous lighting. Take a look at the ladies I photographed in Nashville earlier this year as part of my Hollywood Glamour photo shoot special. Featuring Brooke, Gogo, Lacey, Lavender, Sassenach, Sheena, and Wendy, with hair styling by Shana Michelle Taylor and makeup by Katie-Laine Thornton.
I first met Gabrielle in 2006 in Nashville. When I started doing photography in 2007, I knew I wanted to capture her beauty with my lens. From La Photographie's early days of pin up (2008's Valentine series in a bathtub full of candy hearts!) to this photo shoot last month, I have adored creating with her, and our close friendship is one of the most important in my life.
I like to call this collection of images "Gabrielle at Home."
I've been making pretty pictures with Shan de Leers for many years now. It's no surprise that this dazzling dame wanted to do a 1970s-inspired pinup session in her awesomely-era-specific basement. With wood paneling, unique tile, and a fuzzy rug, we created some images perfect for showcasing Shan's groovy side. Enjoy!
This is the second time I've had the pleasure of creating with Gwen, and we always make magic together. I loved the ideas she had for this session, including the witchy props, her beautiful wardrobe items, and the jewel-tone fabrics used to create our sets. Plus her tiny black kitten made an appearance! Hair & makeup was done by the amazing Katie-Laine Thornton.
You may have noticed, but since I moved to Denver in 2015, the Clocktower Cabaret has quickly become one of my favorite places. I did a Photo Shoot Special there in 2016, and then my second special there earlier this year. The women who signed up for this special were all burlesque dancers, but anyone can come and do a photo shoot with me inside the Clocktower Cabaret! Message me to learn more about how you can come play dress up.
