Beauty Shoot at Yards Park, Washington, DC with Natural Light Portrait Photographer

Hi y’all! I try to update my website with new pictures as much as possible. But between kids, the husband, and work, life has been pretty busy. And I don’t always get to book as many shoots as I would like due to limited time. But have no fear!

I had a chance to work recently with Fadeelah Rasheed, a makeup artist based in the Washington, DC area. Fadeelah was in search of a photographer who could help her build her portfolio and I’m glad we were able to connect. She brought her gorgeous model, Bianca, and I brought my creativity and camera! It was a great day for a wonderful shoot.

I also had fellow photographer Dana Philipps along, and we had so much fun taking pictures, talking about the ins and outs of the photography business, and the art of taking good photographs. It was just good girl time all-around!

I must say it wasn’t very difficult to get great shots with Bianca because she’s just so pretty already. So what I tried to do was to capture her in various poses, with different backdrops, and from various angles. Bianca isn’t a professional model (yet), but she did an excellent job taking direction from me and working the camera. (Go, Bianca!) Not to mention, her makeup was the bomb dot com! (Go, Fadeelah!) This turned out to be one of my favorite shoots.

This beauty shoot actually made me a little nostalgic, reminding me of my recent photo shoot with my friend Kristus Ratliff, the reigning 2014 Mrs. Maryland Plus America. You can check out her photos over here.
