St. Valentine | En Rose

Step into the Shadows and shop creations and join our OnlyFans for this uncensored portrait and more!

 

This set is finally done!  It was such a fun set to shoot, and I can’t wait to get started on future photography with a new lens that I’ve got my eye on!

The studio has been getting smaller and smaller, and with less space, we’ve got to make the most of it to keep creating and expanding!

Blanket backdrops, like this one with faux flowers I thrifted, work wonders when tacked to the wall, and the ring light used is also a space saver as it doesn’t need the umbrellas I use with the flashguns.

 

How do you make the most of your space in the studio?

Step into the Shadows and get an uncensored print!

 

A new year will bring new shoots in the studio, but there are still a few nudes and boudoir portraits from the last set!

 

Lots of red in the portraits lately, and I’m excited to get more blues and silvers in the studio!

Reds are passion, blues… thoughtfulness and mystery, silver is strength and uniqueness.

The colors we use in our art are to not only inspire, but to carry across a mood.  What mood are we feeling?

 

What would you like to see more of? What colors stir your soul and inspire your heart?

~~ Another year in the studio comes to a close! ~~

What demons have you slayed this year?  Made peace with?

What are you going to tackle in 2020?

 

This past year brought great strides in self-love and body-positivity, indispensable to any artist and lover of life, and definitely necessary for myself as a genderqueer soul.

It also saw the start of several businesses, practices and passions, because WHY WAIT?

 

The new year in the photo studio is going to bring even more handmade couture, portraits, makeup and artistry.

 

Who’s excited for the new year?

We all have different versions of ourselves we try to embody.
Confidence, sensuality…. real red hair…

What do you want to embody, and how do you explore and practice it?

Portrait photography is a wonderful way to step into different sides of yourself to see what feels best and get a foothold into what you want to be.

Sometimes what we love to see in studio isn’t something that works too well in the real world.

We love magic, odd styles and lots of lashes, but in the everyday, it’s a bit harder to manage.

The Blessed Shadows studio will soon be launching a new blog to help make makeup, fashion, and other forms of creativity more of a habit.

It’ll feature and encourage more frequent play, without the weight of a ‘full-on’ photoshoot.  Not every look needs a shoot with my best cameras.

 

Creativity is magic, even when it’s done on a more ‘casual’ basis.

 

If you have any suggestions for looks, costumes, ideas, etc, or even cheaper phones with high camera quality to consider, I’d love to hear!

Let’s keep making creativity a habit, and keep weaving everyday magic into our lives.

These past few months have been full of changes here in the studio and in my personal life.

It’s becoming increasingly important to remember to take time to simplify.

 

The studio has become a hotbed for new creations and art, but that has lead to an influx in new supplies but also an imbalance in normal workflow.

It’s been ages since I’ve played with makeup or my cameras.

 

Sometimes we need a break, but sometimes we also need to recalibrate, simplify, and integrate new passions and interests with more forethought.

 

How do you balance all your interests and side-businesses?
