On the Other Side of Production- My Shoot with Will Aston

Hi, Everyone!

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot with a Philadelphia photographer Will Aston and I wanted to share my experience 🙂

Usually, I work on the production side of shoots: styling, hair and makeup. AND I LOVE IT. I have found a passion in this art and am eager to learn and grow and work on bigger and cooler projects in the future. I’m beyond thankful for the opportunities I have been given, and connections I have made. I’m also very excited to kick off a series of projects that I have been working on for a few years. We’ll talk about that later…

So, I was contacted by a friend, Tim, who is involved in the arts in Philadelphia. Tim liked a photo I posted (SO SELFIE), and forwarded it to his photographer, Will. Tim then inquired about shooting with Will and if it was something I’d be interested in. I said yes, although I was not very confident.

I would like to say that I’m flattered. THANK YOU! That’s so kind 🙂

Initially, I was looking at this as a networking opportunity, which Will and I did later discuss. And at worst, I might be able to snag a new headshot for my website.

I was contacted by Will, and we scheduled a shoot.

It took me a minute to warm up and feel comfortable. It was also only a matter of time until Will saw my goofy side, and laughed at my jokes. From that point forward, we had a blast.

We shot for a handful of hours in various locations. The images looked great and I was able to view them the next day.

A few days later, Will and I shot again.

Below are some of the images we created! Check them out!

New Studio Work

Hi Guys!

 

I recently linked up with a Photographer new to Philadelphia, Chris Loupos, and we’ve been playing around shooting at a pretty little studio in Fishtown.

 

Chris is super cool and easy to get along with. His ideas intrigue me and he’s incredibly open to hearing mine. We hope to work on a lighting series and a decade piece soon.

 

I’m so excited to share these images. I’ve been putting together a decade mood board for a while now, but with a dedicated photographer on board, I’m really focusing on designing the shoot and getting it in studio asap.

 

I hope to post some new images soon.

 

Thanks for reading, everyone!
