Tai's Spring Fashion & Beauty Session at The Buffalo History Museum

Early May brought some much needed warmth and color to Buffalo, along with the inspiration to get out and shoot! So what great timing it was to have a fashion and beauty photography session with our good friend Tai at the Buffalo History Museum's Japanese Gardens. We started our shoot alongside the museum, as the sun was setting just behind the trees. Beautiful! 

We love this look paired with the beautiful blooms of cherry blossoms in the background.

Sometimes the most unsuspecting structures can make for some unique visual appeal. Love how this concrete scene accentuates Tai's chic fashionista stylings.

Tai - thanks for a great shoot, as always! We look forward to working with you again! 

Photo Event at The Buffalo ArtSpace Gallery

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!

And now, the long-awaited unveiling... We had a tough time deciding which images to load for this blog, since all the girls shot so well. But we managed to narrow it down to these images.

We had a great time working with Shondra (thanks for the art direction), Teresa (fabulous job on the makeup), Gina (for your help to make it all come together)...and we couldn't have done so well without our intern Jamie (awesome catch lights!!). Thanks to all our models - Gina, Shondra, Melonie, Tai, Nicolle, Brit, and Santana. You were fabulous and made our job so easy!

Check out more photos from this shoot on Flickr...and as always, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Now, off to Dominican Republic - stay tuned! :)
