Makeup / Hair Stylist: Tanya Amalfitano
Location: Rye NH
I've been wanting to work on a pinup style shoot for a while now, and with the help of my trusty retro-creating hair/makeup stylist Tanya, we set out to make that happen!
We put a call out over social media for a photographer, and Douglas of daggerSLADE Model Images responded, allowing for this fun shoot to take place.
While our initial thought was to work at Hampton beach, it was quickly realized that the Friday night crowd, and price for parking (with only limited amount of time to shoot) was undesirable. Luckily, Douglas suggested a nearby beach, and it worked out to our advantage with not as many people.
I always learn something from each shoot, no matter the times I've worked with someone, or been in front of a camera. This time, I learned that trying to run through water, while kicking waves to create a bigger splash, and simultaneously keeping a model-esque face is not as easy as it looks (though I've never watched anyone try). Be that as it may, a lot of fun was had by all, and the experience gave me a chance to try new things, like splashing around in the ocean, and light-painting.
I picked my absolute favorite images (which was not an easy task) to show in this gallery, but if you would like to see even more from this shoot, make sure to check out my behind the scenes post, or visit daggerSLADE Model Images' Album from the shoot to see the other images on his Facebook page!
