I love it when I get a phone call and not only does the person want to work with me but that they "Fell in love with my style" are words I think every artist wants to hear.  Angelique Brown was looking for a Promotional Shoot for her first break-out song Kiss Me.  It's beautiful and kinda upbeat, but when you listen deep into the lyrics you realize it's about an abusive relationship. Angelique went on explaining to me that she was in a horrible abusive relationship and was homeless for a bit because of it. She went on about how she got out of the situation but it's just insane to me what she had to go through with her child just to do so. Her story resonated with me and I knew I now really wanted to do her session! The supposed system that is set up is week and difficult to navigate. You as the mom have to leave your home with your children and sleep in a shelter, You as the mom need to work 2 jobs trying to save enough money to get away from the situation. You have the weight of the world on top of you plus the burden of financial responsibility and don't forget trying not to get your ass kicked every time your spouse feels like it. It's a horrible situation to be in, but once there's you and children involved and years have gone by, It a dangerous and almost impossible situation to get out of.  I was so honored to do her session, The photos turned out amazing and we had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. I seriously am so happy for Angelique, I'm glad she is in a better place in her life and I hope she gets an amazing record deal and continues to create music with her beautiful voice. 

* Id usually say if you are in a similar situation here's info that could help, mixed with some wise words of wisdom, but I don't have that. I only have a few names of shelters and no words. Physical and mental abuse takes such a toll on all involved. The only thing I can say is the more you tell all the people around you the better your chances of getting some kind of help :(

 A few weeks back, And believe it or not the weather was decent for February/ March. I had Sophia Fossano in The Ferndale Studio @sophiafossanomodeling  She is a  High School Senior This Year, Not only is it extra fun haveing a senior who also models, but she was open to really make these more fashionable than Senior Session like. Since Mom was on board that's exactly what we did.  I just happen to have a few t-shirts in the studio for a lookbook shoot with  Detroit T-shirt Co Preaching Tees @preachingtees We used that shirt for some of the shoot. I have to say The White Vintage Baseball Team T-shirt from Preaching Tees probably my favorite! The shoot was awesome, I love when I have a subject comfortable in their skin and takes direction well. On top of that, she did her own hair and makeup which I struggle with myself to this day lol!  I am so envious of people who can do their own hair and makeup well. And Eyelashes....I love eyelashes and lipstick, I mean love, love, love. So when my clients can master both, I'm super geeked, If I did their eyelashes would look like Groucho! ( it would totally be a mustache on their nose) I also am using more and more my Omni Filter Set from Lensbaby,  and I have to say, The instant flair and color it creates I'm so digging it! Lately, I'm really into placing some kind of netting over my model's faces. I like the look and the leading lines it creates.  The whole session was awesome and the looks were amazing. The T-shirts at the end of the session were a fun extra.  You should visit Preaching Tees ( Ill be talking about them in an upcoming post) The site is really cool and the shirts are really kick-ass!

The-one-and-only Josie Pace was in the Ferndale Studio @josiepacejosiepace.com  a few weeks ago and I have to say that was the most kick-ass fun session I have had in a while. She and her producer Ken Roberts @kenrobertsmusician / @skullmanagement were in my studio for 2 hours. We shot in the studio, the hallway of the Ferndale Center Building ( always an awesome spot) a handful on the fire escape which I love shooting on. The building elevator which I am always pleasantly surprised when it works well lol! I have to say the photos are just fricken amazing! Josie is not only extremely talented, but her video "Lies of the lovers" is so beautiful and probably one of my favorites not only visually but when she's not screaming her voice can sound very soft and sweet. ( just FYI all in German) Her style and this is a huge influence from her producer Ken Roberts is stylized in such a cool artistic way. A lot of lens flair ( J.J. Abrams would be proud!) A touch of gritty old TV, VHS- 8mm mixed in and visually  I love it!  Forever I have photographed dreamy romantic, and I still do, but I am veering towards bold and gritty and this shoot was the prime example of a new direction I am hoping to dive into.  I knew that using my Omni Filters from Lensebaby   / @omnifilter,  for this shoot would be the perfect icing on the cake. The visual effect I was going for fit her style and brand, I was so happy with the results (and they were too!)  Josie is amazing in front of the camera as well as on stage. We're planning on a Summer Shoot Downton and I am super geeked and full of ideas! already!

I've only known Jessica York of Breathe Ferndale for a short period of time. We meet on Instagram. I had just moved into my Studio in the Ferndale Center Building located in Downtown Ferndale, her Spa is literally 3 minutes from me. She's spunky and fun and knows her craft well. She's an advocate for small businesses, women helping women, and mental health. What's not to like! We touched base and deiced to collab for a special. She does the hair and makeup I take the photos. I've had a few people from that collab walk through my door and I have to say, each one looked amazing. I'm so impressed at her makeup skills. She has a book club!!!! you should join! She takes mental health very seriously and is always pushing for one to take care of themselves or to reach out to a friend. I can not stress enough, especially during Covid when so many businesses including my own struggled that joining forces, collaborating, helping each other out whether it be just a simple shout-out on SM or more ~how refreshing that is!  When the world seems to spiral, joining forces, working together, and spreading that "good news" is a wonderful thing!  Here is your opportunity to help a small business, to take just a few minutes to boost a small business owner who has given so much to her community. HOUR DETROIT BEST OF 2021. You can vote for her in these categories: DAY SPA/ MASSAGE/ SALON OR SPA FOR FACIAL Here: HOUR DETROIT BEST OF 2021

                      ~ I wish her the best of luck & that 2021 will be her BEST YEAR yet!~

If you are interested in massage, facial or hair, and makeup for a special event or photoshoot book with here today! Breathe Ferndale
