Denver Fashion: Editorial Style Photo Shoot with Alexis

About six months ago Michelle and I started writing down all these crazy ideas we had for photo shoots. We had so many of them that trying to keep track anymore was useless unless we actually wrote them down to go back to. One of the things we really wanted to do was tell a story through our images in an editorial like format. And, when we got connected with Alexis we knew she would be perfect for this role considering that besides being a talented model she’s also an actress…and photographer and… well basically surrounded in the arts. Our idea was to start the story with a light mood that changes with the entrance and exit of a door- and it’s up to the viewer to imagine what happened in between while we tell the story at the beginning and the end. We were very fortunate to have a wonderful makeup artist/hair stylist, Sarah, help us make the whole thing come together. The funny thing about it was that in our preparation for the shoot, Michelle and I were hoping that we might just have a little rain in between to add to the mood for the second half. And, as luck would have it right after we finished the first half of the shoot, it started to rain. It definitely added to the messy hair & makeup look we were going for and made for some cool reflection shots. We had so much fun with this idea and hope we’ll get a chance to work with Alexis and Sarah again because they were both awesome to work with! Here’s some of the images from the day. They are in order to get a sense of the story- enjoy!
