Lately, I have been bit more surrounded by fashion than usual. My beautiful friend began modeling for Wilhelmina Models, I started assisting for an incredibly talented, local fashion photographer, Polina Osherov, and I was introduced to a new and exciting fashion-focused group in Indy called Pattern. After spending a bit of time assisting Polina, I could not wait to try out some fashion work of my own! It just so happened that my lovely friend, Hilke, was also in need of some new photos for her book!
So, a few weeks ago, I dove in! I have done a few “fashion” related head shots, etc. in the past, however, nothing near this extensive- with styling, makeup, hair, and all! It was definitely a challenging, new process for me, especially since I was doing the majority of the styling, moving lights, etc, however, it was completely rewarding. I don’t look at these images and feel satisfied (not that that ever happens with your own work), however, I know how much I learned and how to put that to use the next time. THAT, I am completely satisfied with.
Today, my week was just made by Pattern! They included this series in their editorial section! I am so thrilled and honored to be amongst such talented local photographers. I cannot wait to shoot more!!
I can’t thank my helpers enough!
Model & Makeup: Luckily, Hilke is not only incredibly good looking, she is incredibly good at makeup!
I also got some awesome help from my friend Sara at The District Exchange. They donated a ton of clothes and accessories for the day of the shoot! I can’t wait to do another shoot and have Sara work her styling magic along with some of their awesome clothes!
Thank you to my friend Kelsey- photographer at heart, art teacher by day- for making the drive out to help when she had the time!
HUGE thank you to Polina for being an awesome teacher and for encouraging me to get out and shoot more for me…. and of course to Pattern for including me in your editorials!
