Ophelia | Portrait

I absolutely adore doing portraits lying down.

It makes it so much easier to style the hair and get this soft, flowy look that I love in photography.

If you haven’t shot your model lying down, I highly suggest it! Play and experiment!

Soft Pink | Floral Portrait

This thrifted dress was such a gorgeous find for the photography studio!

It pairs so well with the bright summer makeup and the florals.

What’s your favorite prop to shoot with in the photography studio?

Witcher Cosplay | Fantasy Portrait Photography

Have monsters that need slaying?

Sounds like you’re in need of a Witcher.

🖤🗡🖤

I’m very excited for this cosplay portrait series to be dropping on the BlessedShadows OnlyFans this week!

This fantasy photoshoot was so much fun, it’s exceptional fun to have a new chestplate in the studio for my more masculine cosplays.

So, what’s your favorite monster, and do you care to toss a coin to your Witcher?

Bettie Page Inspired Boudoir Photoshoot | Artist Burnout

Artist burnout is real.

And to be honest, sometimes our response is to work even harder.

Take time to rest.

And when you start making art again, try something different.

Slightly new, or wildly different from the art you usually create.

Try a new technique, a different strategy, use different tools. Get your heart excited again.

How do you bounce back after creative burnout?

Blue & Leather | Portrait Photography | Art and Rotating Hobbies

Did you know that most of my works are created during a stage of artistic obsession?

I have rotating interests, although rotating obsessions is probably more accurate.

I tend to fall on an interest that I become completely infatuated with for a season.


Sometimes it’s drawing, sometimes jewelry making, prop making, costume design, lingerie, and more.

Most of the time, it’s photography

I’m very blessed that my obsessive hobbies can feed into one another so well and can help my businesses.

The important thing with hyperfixations is to pace yourself and your budget. Budget your time AND your space, and plan to keep your new tools.

Don’t enroll in college for a degree in photography, don’t buy every lens and backdrop available all at once.

Pace yourself.

Pace yourself and see what you can do with the tools you’ve already collected.

Can you model with the props you made during the last project? Can you make your own custom backdrops? Have you made jewelry you can shoot with?

Although we can enjoy our obsessions and hobbies for the sake of enjoyment, see how they can build into eachother.

How can they work together?

Step into the Shadows and shop creations

Beauty, fashion, fantasy portraits don’t have to take forever to shoot or cost a lot of money.

With basic materials featured listed in Portrait Photography Mist-Haves, all we really need is a camera (even an iPod camera), a light source, and something to wear (or not).

The world needs art, and as humans, we need to express ourselves and create.

With so much uncertainty, we don’t need to worry about spending money on fancy equipment. We don’t need to wait to create.

How do you create on a budget? What are your essential tools for creating?

Headdresses and couture like these red floral horns and this lace couture top are available in the Blessed Shadows shop!

What’s your favorite way to source backdrops for your fantasy photography? This one is a ‘sigil’ floor mat that’s been framed by thrifted lace throws and scarves… not mention lighted by a few standard floor lamps from a department store.

It really can be that simple to create a thrifty, simple photoshoot that looks gorgeous!
