I’m going to start this entry with the fact that I only use my Canon Rebel Xsi still. It’s hard to let go of this fact. I went from being a student at The Art Institute of Tampa and using any type of equipment I am able to get a hold of. And ended up keeping the connections of self-enthusiasts toward the better part of art. 

I don’t need celebrities, fancy equipment, or perfection, but people who can collaborate for something to fulfill the space in my heart for photo. Endless scrolling of Pinterest and Tumblr can keep a person sane for the breath of air of color and composition. 

You may say I’m being emotional, but it’s just theater and time to become twisted into a fantasy for this Halloween Season!

American Horror Story Coven  became an influence suddenly. Because we ended up at a pumpkin patch behind a church. We remarked instantly of nuns from AHS Asylum and realized the new generation of sexy witches.

It’s quiet in this local area of Spring Hill, Deltona Blvd. What catches your eye as you’re driving past this road may be all the houses and businesses, but, one vibrant pink building. 

I never could ask myself, “really…how much more pink can I take?”

First, I didn’t have to wake up an extra two hours just to drive off to somewhere more populated than Spring Hill. Second, I was able to style a monochromatic look, while I still had room to play with another color just a few feet away.

Yesterday with a crew, photographers, models, cars, ships, planes, tanks, and a bar held together an eventful day! I was heading to Ybor centro district to meet everyone at The Bad Monkey bar. Which was a few spots next to Gaspar’s Grotto and across the street of The Green Iguana. 
The Bad Monkey just had their grand opening the previous night and we were getting together today to provide promotional photographs for the bar. The bar and the theme of that day is military. We had military uniformed men modeling and females in pin up.

Saturday April 14 I set out to the cutest cupcake shop around Port Richey ,Fl. Cuppy Cakes has been opened for a few months and they’ve been receiving great response from customers. Once I noticed their fresh and new designed interior i couldn’t pass a photo opportunity. There’s something that’s sexy and appealing about pink that makes it stand out so much.
I was so thrilled that a model from model mayhem was dedicated to shoot just from this casting call i posted months ago. Two local models whom were both named Shelby arrived in hot pinks and white clothing. The photoshoot was full of great fun! It was nonstop from beginning to end. The iParty store next door opened the opportunity to get some props to coordinate. 
The beautiful interior and the genuine personalities of the two models (whom are also great friends) make it hard to pick and choose raw photos from my sd card.

Venessa Baez was today’s model. We shot two different looks within 2 hours. This was taken from her bikini spread sheet. During this shoot I had used the most lights i’ve ever used. Within the time frame, 5 lights were up at a time. Boy do I wish I had assistants. This season has been particular full for me. Two more photoshoots will end the week for me on Saturday. Hope to get some drinks that night to celebrate a well thought out week. More to come from another model with two looks and a fun cupcake bakery photoshoot.
