After the long, cold, snowy winter we've had here in Buffalo, we were excited to warm up with a little collaborative photo event at Buffalo's Artspace Gallery earlier this month. It was a great opportunity to get creative and shake off some winter blahs in a beautiful, modern (and warm) creative-use space! We were really fortunate to have the amazing make-up artistry of Sherille Williams MUA, who made the beautiful faces of our beautiful subjects simply shine. It was also great to have a chance to work with Kelsey of Kelsey Gene Photography, as well as our hard working hands-on assistant Kelly Skipper. We hope this is just the start of more creative collaboration to come!
We have to say were very happy to have some super patient, willing subjects who were so cooperative with every suggestion, and so much fun! First on that list were Tai and Ward, who individually have a great look but together...even better! Tai is a fashion fiend, so she had no shortage of wardrobe suggestions for herself and the love of her life. They just looked fabulous!
Next up were two sassy siblings, Santana and Nina, who came through in a big way for the "balloons and bokeh" inspired setup. As Kelly and Kelsey will testify, staging 4 dozen balloons isn't easy! But it all worked out beautifully.
The lovely mother-daughter duo, Li and Madison, closed out the night with understated perfection. We love how the make-up turned out for all these ladies. Absolute beauties!
Thanks again to everyone for making this shoot happen! We hope you love the photographs as much as we enjoyed taking them!
