Get your own headdress in the BlessedShadows Etsy shop! They’re perfect for any photoshoot, boudoir session or fantasy wedding.

This shoot was such a blast, and is SFW so I get to share the whole set!

Two Photoshoots in One

To maximize your lighting setup and time in the studio, consider doing two photoshoots in one.

Start with the simpler set, simpler hair and simpler makeup. The second shoot should have the more elaborate makeup.

Remember that it’s easier to build than to remove.

This strategy works even faster when the two shoots use the same lighting setup and backdrop, but of course feel free to switch it up between photoshoots.

Have you ever done 2+ shoots at once? What looks can you think of that would work well being shot on the same day? What shoot looks are complementary?

Can you guess what the second set in this double shoot was?

~~ 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?

This is often the time of year that’s the hardest.

The sky is dark, the weather is cold, energy drops, and the holidays are in the air.  It’s often a heavy season that could benefit from more kindness, love, and creation.

 

But as much as we try to keep creating, being the best, and on be one the move every moment of the day, we need to remember to rest.

The harder seasons are possibly the best times of year for us to relearn how to slow down.

 

How do you keep your spiritual creativity going?

How do you push through the lulls in the season?
