Portrait series: It's beginning to look a lot like Spooksville with Aly by Moriartie

Hello there!!

I finally got tired of having these super long nails that I couldn't do anything with and chopped them off. Which is giving me more freedom than I have had in the last month! So I figured it would be the perfect time to start catching up on the blog! I took a few spooky sets for the month of October because Halloween is everything and I’ll start talking about those before we get completely caught up for November!

About a month or so ago, I finally got to catch up with Aly Isabelle! Who if you do not know is an AMAZINGLY talented Conceptual photographer! I’d been wanting to shoot with her for a really long time, and then by the time we finally linked up she was looking for a promotional model. Enter me! So we decided to trade a session and this is what I took of her!

I am forever excited about the creatives I meet on Facebook! The social media site may have a few problems but it is a great place to network and collaborate with creatives in your city and state. Without it, I wouldn’t have even known half of the models I do now, and I wouldn’t have had the opportunities to photograph as I have! This is why other than my website and Instagram, Facebook is where a good portion of my presence is.

Aly is spooky all the time, so I was so excited that we were able to carve out some time heading into October to take these photos! She and I met up at Spring Grove Cemetery which is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to photograph, I even contemplated getting a studio nearby! Even though I had now shot over 12 sets there, when we arrived, I took these photos in an area I hadn’t even been in before!! I love exploring new areas, so I was only too happy when she pointed out the new area!

Have you checked out Spring Grove Cemetery?

Portrait Series: The Gospel Truth With CK by Moriartie

Hey There!

It’s been a loonng time. Just take my advice, be absolutely thorough when you get your nails done, otherwise you’ll end up like me, unable to type or do much of anything because you have way too long talons attached to your hand because you were way too nice to tell them to fix it. If you don’t’ then you won’t be able to update your blog with photos of beautiful women because you cant write up blog posts about it! Learn from my mistakes, don’t be a pushover!

DSCF3934.jpg

I had the awesome opportunity to wander around Spring grove cemetery with Ck, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite ladies to work with! When she told me she had an old red gown that screamed Hollywood, I just knew we had to shoot in it!! We wandered through the main entrance and under the bridge. These are a few of my favorites. To see the full set visit my facebook!

DSCF3939.jpg

When I found this tree I just knew it was going to become one of my favorites. It just reminds me of the forests on Olympus and that’s how I found the name for the set, plus the shot of CK sitting in the tree? Definitely made me think she was Persephone’s handmaiden.The only other thing that would have been better would be if we had a crown of flowers or something. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20, perhaps we’’ll shoot it again with flowers another time.

Portrait Series: We're the Wierdo's With Cayce by Moriartie

Hey There!

I’m not sure if God looked at me when he created Cayce and was like “You know what? She’s going to need an adventurous model.” or not, but it definitely seems pretty true. Every time we go out to shoot we have some kind of wacky and unplanned adventure that turns into an amazing photo shoot. The last time we got together we wound up exploring an abandoned building that is usually always locked, but for some reason, the door was unlocked, other then the impending feeling that I may fall through the floor, It was an amazing time.

DSCF3344.jpg

For this shoot, I was wandering through the city with my fiance’s family and realized that on the side of the highway was an entire sunflower field, and II took note of the coordinates so I could shoot there later, and shoot I did! Once Cayce arrived, we traipsed through the sunflower field, and the surrounding trees as well. There were quite a few vehicles that found us shooting on the side of the highway interesting because they just kept honking throughout the entire shoot.

DSCF3445.jpg

The only thing I could think of while I was shooting was the craft, so I highly consider this my first spooky/halloween-esque shoot of the year, and I am already ready for some more! Here are a few of my favorite shots, you can see the entire shoot on facebook!

Portrait Series: Abbey Road with Abby by Moriartie

Hey There!

I feel like long time no see! I finally dusted off my Fuji and headed outside, during threat of a thunderstorm to try and shake the rust off. I like the way this set came out, but I could definitely feel like I was a bit rusty. Just means I need to go back to getting out to shoot once a week again! I’d been talking to Abbey about shooting for quite sometime, and last Thursday we were finally able to make it happen! I’m so glad too, because it was such a fun and new experience for me!

Here are a few of my favorites, as always, you can see the full shoot on Facebook.

Portrait Series: Mousekateer with Kessiah by Moriartie

Hi There!

I wasn’t sure what kind of theme I was going with for this shoot, but afer I started editing I realized that her outfit, and smile reminded me of Mousekateers from Disney Land, and now its a thing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Portrait Series: IDFWU With Tesha by Moriartie

Hey there!

I finally got to shoot with Tesha! I feel like I was trying to link up with her almost as long, if not longer than Dani. I love photographing bomb ass women, its my favorite thing to do , but if they’re bad ass then they are undoubtedly busy and trying to link schedules can be difficult. We wandered around townhouse row in covington, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to photograph. One of the townhouses was under construction which was absolutely perfect for the aesthetic of the shoot!

Portrait Series: Villianelle with Kessiah by Moriartie

Hey There!

Right before I had my double senior session, I had a scene stealing shoot with the adorable Kessiah! She loves to model and it really shows in these photos! She’s so creative, and so down for any kind of theme, I had an absolute blast photographing her, and we did two different themes in the same session. It also gave me an awesome idea for my latest modeling series, involving masks, which you can view on my personal blog if you’re interested.

We wandered through Townhouse row in Covington right by the river at sunset and I couldn’t have set up a more perfect time to shoot. It was golden hour and the sun only helped me capture Kessiah in ways an earlier shoot just wouldn’t allow.

Portrait Series: But Make It Fashion with Kylee and Jordan by Moriartie

Hello There!

I really have been pushing the envelope of my comfort zone lately. I haven’t photographed models under 18 since I worked for Lifetouch, and let me just tell you that photographing children can be super stressful. Not only do you need to make sure that the pose is appropriate but also that you are keeping their attention or you won’t get the shot as well ass making sure it isn’t blurry because all they do is move!

DSCF2104.jpg

Now granted the next ladies to bless the blog aren’t that young, but they are underage, giving me a different mind set to my photography than before. Not only do I need to make sure that they look good, but also that the pose isn’t too adult, and with their parents there that can be so stressful You never know whats too much for one person and whats not enough for another. That’s why communication is so important, and it works for any age.

I was asked to photograph a high school senior and her best friend, it was definitely the first time I’d ever done senior photos but I had such a blast. The photos came out even better than I expected and it was such an awesome feeling to know that they also not only enjoyed the photos but also the experience.

Boudoir Session: Sweet Spot with Voodoo Nebula by Moriartie

Hey There!

A few months ago, I got the awesome opportunity to shoot an exclusive set for Voodoo Nebula! A super talented tattoo artist and Model both for and outside of Suicidegirls! As, I am always saying, I absolutely love shooting boudoir. It really is my favorite thing to take part in. There’s just something so awesome about the experience, and I wish I could take part in it every day.

Portrait Session: Bad Reputation with C.K. Machete by Moriartie

Hi THere!

I finally got around to going back out and photographing CK, she and I both have wild work schedules and its really hard to link up! So we’ll schedule something, and then we’ll reschedule something and then we’ll reschedule it again, but nothing happened for our Friday adventure to be canceled, and thus we met up on a super hot day and wandered through the riverfront of Covington.

The Women’s Group Shoot I went too last month has really inspired my tastes when it comes to my photography. I had never wandered through a city and taken pictures that way. I always shoot in a park or a single location. You have so much freedom when you shoot on the street, you can just keep walking until you find something else, and now I am addicted!

DSCF1704.jpg
DSCF1729.jpg

This shoot was my first city shoot since Lexington, but I had so much fun that it definitely is going to become a staple. The last time I shot with CK, I did film and it turned out so well I had to do it again! So I shot half on digital and half on two rolls of film. I had a roll of xperia and a roll of Lomochrome Purple. I’m most excited to see how the Purple is going to turn out~!

Portrait Series: Urban Princess with Megan by Moriartie

Hey There,

I had the awesome opportunity to photograph a bunch of amazing models thanks to Facebook two weeks ago. I photographed several models and I’ll be spreading them out throughout the next couple of weeks. First up is Megan, who was ready to go when she arrived to the group.

When I asked her what the concept was, she replied “Urban Princess” and I nodded, but when we got onto the street, it was obvious she was much more of a Conqueror. She commanded the frame and it was amazing. I will post up my favorites, but to see the whole set, visit my facebook.
