Fashion Photographer Denver: Let it Reign folks! That’s right, I’ve been up to more than just photographing weddings, boudoir beauties, families, and babies… as if that hasn’t been enough to keep my plate overflowing! HA! I’ve been back in the saddle as a lead photographer for Reign Magazine the last 6 plus months and have been loving every second of it. I mean, let’s be real- what more could a photographer of PEOPLE (and a fashion forward kind of gal) ask for then a gorgeous model or two (or three), an entire design team, capable assistants, fabulous clothes, ridiculously expensive shoes, blow-your-mind accessories, a drop-dead incredible venue, and ideas by the dozens to work with?? Ummmm… the answer is nothing!
It’s ironic actually because when I was first getting into photography over a decade ago in Santa Barbara CA, it was my dream to become a fashion photographer. However, at the time, (and even now) fashion photography was a NOT an easy industry to break into as a “newbie,” the models and the art directors (I learned the hard way) were a total PITA, and the idea of running my own business and calling the shots, at the end of the day, was just WAY more attractive. Couple that with the fact that I was pretty darn good at wedding photography, beyond inspired by the real live love stories that unfolded right before my eyes, had discovered that I work best under pressure with no option for a “re-shoot,” and it was pretty much a done deal. I left the bottom of the totem pole at a fashion and commercial studio in LA and opened my doors as a wedding photographer in 2003. Done. Or so I thought…
After being connected with the fabulous editor and publisher at Reign magazine a couple of years ago who loved how easy I am to work with (and who hired me for her own wedding along with the beyond talented Joe and Joyce Kuem at Studio JK), who adored the images I was able to produce for her, and who began inviting me back time and time again to do fashion editorial work for the magazine, how could I possibly resist?? It’s simple. I couldn’t. I can’t. And, not only that, but I have had a BLAST working on these photo shoots! From the amazing team of people that I am able to collaborate with, to seeing my images in full page glossy impeccable print, to the obvious bragging rights… it’s been something that has expanded my portfolio in a way that I have LOVED. And that’s not all… I have been doing more and more fashion work lately, mostly for Reign Magazine, but coming soon- for a couple of new and exciting companies, to be revealed at a date in the not so distant future…. stay tuned.
