This beautiful little lady had never had her makeup or hair done before, had never even had photos taken of her before! My makeup artist and HER friend offered to make her up and asked me if I would come over to do an impromptu photo shoot in his living room. This is how I met Alex, my wonderful and extremely talented massage therapist. She comes to YOUR house, ladies, and IS ABSOLUTELY VITAL TO LIFE!
Inside portraiture is not usually my go-to, but I am also a big sucker for plain white backgrounds and beautiful black and white images! I set up shop while she got her makeup done. She cracked open a beer, put on her Calvin Klein big girl panties, and owned the camera!
I love her outlook on life! Being a business owner herself and serving the community through health and wellness, she is all about women empowerment, self-love, and spreading good vibes into the world.
"So I've never been much of a girly girl but I still wanted to see what it would be like to do a shoot with Laura. She made me feel comfortable and confident and we had so much fun! I even ended up taking my shirt off . I'd definitely do it again or recommend her to anyone who feels a little on the fence about the whole thing. It was just like hanging out with a friend, having a good time, and also boosting your confidence to a level you didn't even know existed. Oh and the pictures turned out great. I'm so happy I have a mini time capsule of the experience I can look back on and remember any time I want
Now that have you seen how wonderfully beautiful, sexy, a fireball of personality she is, BOOK YOURSELF A MASSAGE!
Think you are to much of a tomboy for a boudoir shoot? Trust me, YOU ARE NOT! LETS CHAT!
Parker Fitzgerald and Riley Messina from the Overgrowth project collaborated with Pic Time US and put on an Instagram contest to win a trip to Astoria, Oregon for an Overgrowth Workshop. .....AND I was the winner! THIS WAS EPIC for me! Not only do I NEVER travel, but I NEVER win anything! This was by far the BEST experience. Meeting Parker, Riley, and guest speak Ryan Muirhead was an honor. Surrounding yourself with like-minded creatives and incredible independent beautiful women as our models was heart warming and inspiring. These 3 women allowed strangers to photograph them how THEY saw the scene and they moulded to what was asked, but with never losing themselves. Learning their story, their strength, their beauty was inspiring. We ate dinners together, had in-depth conversations about life and art. We built a weekend community and soaked up all the goodness that was to be taught.
Miss F came to me with a vague image of inspiration in mind. She remembered seeing a candid black and white portrait of a model hanging out on a balcony in between photo shoots. She had a towel on her head and a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. I think Miss F slayed being so nonchalant in absolute luxury!
We adventured to downtown Austin and thought The Driskill hotel was the perfect location! The Driskill is the oldest operating hotel in Austin, Texas. With its Romanesque-style it was the perfect background for the luxury and lavishness Miss F wanted to convey.
The morning started with makeup by Cyler Daigle. Even in the middle of August, Miss F was flawless.
