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?

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?

This cosplay of Sabrina from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was such a great way to spend the afternoon!

This wedding dress from the photography wardrobe was perfect for a Dark Baptism and was a great fit for a Sabrina Spellman cosplay

This shoot was also the perfect time to shoot with the old Nikon DSLR and test out the studio’s new SD card reader, which transfers raw images from the DSLR right into my phone for editing!
