Vartyka shoot

Trying to grasp the concept of shooting Fashion…along with my glamour/ vintage style and still keep the session outside (where I love to be). The model (Kylie) was actually taking a break from the shoot when she naturally struck this pose (okay, I did call out to her, which is why she turned and looked at the camera). The wordrobe was on loan from a local designer (Vartyka, and I will be checking my spelling on this one), the jewelry was from another local designer, was also on loan to us for the shoot. The earrings are both hand made and is an original design (much better look at the wardrobe and jewelry both in color and in black and white on my website , via the image…just click on it to be taken to a larger view and also to my website). Hope you enjoy this and the other images in the gallery.

    • Thank you nanoy, I will let Kylie know. She was such a trooper to hang with us during the four hour shoot and still be so positive about it.

  2. Oh Stan, I love this. Okay I’ve always wished I could be one of your models.. However, doing Styling for you would be even more incredible. Your combination of Fashion/ Glam/Vintage is outstanding.

    • Thank you so much Resa! And I am SURE we can work out a deal where you bring your amazing Styling skills to one of my shoots, and then do me the honor of photographing you as well. All things are possible, and yet we allow so few to be probable. I extend an open invitation to you if ever our paths cross my friend!
      ps: your Mom post deserves TEN stars!
