Holiday Lookbook Shoot with Bishop Boutique {Washington DC Fashion Photographer}

One of my favorite projects I get to work on every few months is the lookbooks we put together for Bishop Boutique.  Not only do they have the most fun shoes and accessories in all of Old Town, but the fabulous ladies there also pull together fabulous fashion all from local boutiques around Old Town Alexandria!

Don’t all these sparkles and glam make you want to run out get shopping for the holidays?  Then plan a trip to Paris?  …happy shopping!

Does not everything depend on our interpretation of the silence around us?  

- Lawrence Durrell

Every once in a while I get to photograph someone who inspires me and pushes me out of my comfort zone…Miss C was absolutely that for me.  We photographed in her stunning DC condo which was a fun change from my usual shoots in the Old Town studio.

She herself is an artist and poet with a passion for empowering women.  Here are a just a few of my favorites from our shoot.  (as you read you will see poetry that has been curated by Miss C herself especially for these photographs).  Isn’t she amazing?

Lady, i will touch you with my mind. 
Touch you and touch and touch 
until you give 
me suddenly a smile, shyly obscene

He was now in that state of fire that she loved.  She wanted to be burnt.

Love is an attempt to penetrate another being, but it can only be realized if the surrender is mutual.

- Octavio Paz

Cassandra M-94

every mouth you’ve ever kissed
was just practice
all the bodies you’ve ever undressed
and ploughed in to
were preparing you for me.
i don’t mind tasting them in the 
memory of your mouth
they were a long hall way
a door half open
a single suit case still on the conveyor belt
was it a long journey?
did it take you long to find me?
you’re here now,
welcome home.
- Warsan Shire

Miss C Contemporary Glamour {Washington DC Glamour Photography}

The ever so lovely Miss C.

(who reminds me a whole lot of a movie star whose initials start are A.H.  Can you guess?)

After Miss Ana B did a fabulous Lana Del Ray styled look on her, how could we not have a fantastic shoot?

Ana Buitrago - Stunning!!! Great shots friend <3

Cavin - How am I just seeing this!? I’ve moved to San Diego since this shoot! I still LOVE these images! Thank you again for such stunning work!

Modern Glam 1

Most wardrobe posts end up being more about boudoir, however this one applies for almost any type of session!  Modern Glam is a classic style…beautiful for a portrait, a contemporary glamour session, head shot, or a boudoir session.
Softly blown out hair, meets long lashes and nude lips.  Pair it with some of these understated, but timeless gold pieces and a killer “little black dress” and you’re set.
A fitted black blouse or dress photographs well on women of all shapes; especially when it has long or 3/4 length sleeves.
