Heart Portraits // The Final Collage!



Here's the final Heart Collage I've been working on the past couple of weeks! 


Thank you to everyone who volunteered to have red lipstick drawn on their faces and pose for a few shots!  (If you're interested in free red lipstick, talk to me! lol... have a few tubes left!) j/k

This was a project put together as a contest entry for a website company that designs websites for photographers.  I actually ended up getting in the top 5!


Thank you to EVERYONE: Kathleen, Sarah, Darwin, Steve, Leigh-Ann, Corinna, Eldon, Marla, Mrs. Reid, Brad, Eileen, Mr. Reid, Andy, Gena, Rose, Madeline, Barb, Bella, Lorna and Lindsay!

Heart Portraits // Part 3



Sunday afternoon I had more people volunteer for my heart photos!  This round is of 4 sisters who drove out to my place.   We headed across the street to the Shops at Morgan Crossing and had fun taking photos throughout the stores and walkways.  Thank you Marla, Rose, Madeline and Eden for being such great models!

Heart Portraits // Part 1



I have an assignment! What do I have to do?  Take 20 headshots, but each person must have a heart on their face (in lipstick).  This is for a contest I'm entering that has some fabulous prizes.  I thought it would be fun, so I started this past weekend and already have 11 people so far!  Here's just a few shots of 4 people from Saturday and Sunday... currently editing the rest and will share more throughout the week.  Thank you to Lindsay, Leigh-Ann, Kathleen and Eldon who helped out... these were the first 4 headshots taken!



If you're interested in being a part of this let me know! I need a few more volunteers to get their shots taken by Sunday to reach my 20 count!

(This is for a contest entry hosted by my website provider/host)


I will be available Saturday afternoon and Sunday during the day.

Night Street Shot // Personal



I took this photo today on the spur of the moment...totally unplanned.  I was pulling out of the parking lot at my work and noticed the daylight was fading fast.  I have tried taking photos daily... to get more creative and to purposefully LOOK for photos.  

This brought an idea back to one of my classes I took at Pull Focus Film School!  Since this was unplanned, I wasn't really prepared with a tripod, so I created a makeshift "tripod" with my camera bag and sweater on my vehicle and propped my camera against them to take a couple shots while cars passed by.  

I love having light in photos...whether they are lines, blurred or at Christmas time in decorations!  I was aiming to get at least one vehicle driving through the photo and I got a semi-truck. :)
