How To Work With Wind When Modeling

Clothing: Robbie & Co

Photographer: Alysha Caufman

You would never guess by looking at these photos that this entire shoot it felt like we were trapped inside a wind tunnel! So how did we pull it off? Well one thing I've learned from experience with modeling it to not let different situations and circumstances that might be out of your comfort zone intimidate or frustrate you. For this shoot we tried to find as much shelter from the buildings as possible and waiting for little breaks in the gusts but sometimes you just gotta go with it! Shooting in wind can be a nightmare but it can also be dreamy, especially with clothes/hair that allow for the wind to give it some good movement. So rather than getting frustrated that your hair feels like it is out of control and the dress in blowing up in between your legs making it look like you have a wedgie (yes this has happened more times than I care to admit) use the wind to your advantage! If the wind is blowing your hair back making it look like you don't have hair at all just rotate a bit! Change your angle so the wind is carrying your hair making you look like you're floating down straight from heaven. Same goes for clothing if the wind is pushing the clothes straight into your body rotate so that it is showing off movement in the clothing. Seems like pretty simple stuff right? Easier said then done when you've got wind in your face but next time you find yourself in this situation take a deep breath and think all the variables for each shot and each outfit! Feel free to communicate with the photographer let them know to be your eyes! 

Hopefully this will help ya not be intimidated by wind and maybe even excited to shoot in it!!

All That Glitters

All that glitters ain't gold, but this shoot was.

Creative collaborative shoots are SO necessary for me to keep me excited and growing in what I do. I love working with other creative's are coming up with a concept and vision for the shoot and watching it come to life! This is to date one of my all time favorite shoots and I got to work with two of my favorite ladies on it Cherisa the makeup artist is SO talented at what she does and every time I get up from her chair I feel so beautiful, in this case beautiful and kinda dope all at the same time ;) and the photographer... OH MY GAWWWSH! I loveeeed working with Alyssa some of my favorite shots of myself have come from this shoot with her. Enjoy!

I've been absolutely terrible at blogging lately, my goal is to start posting more photo shoot photos on here! I shoot with different companies multiple times a week and want to start sharing the images because this is my work & this is what I do!! I love modeling and I love being in front of the camera in the least vain way possible hahaha! I love meeting and working with new people almost daily, it definitely keeps things exciting! Each company and photographer I work with has a different vibe and style they are going for and ever single shoot is different. This shoot is for one of the awesome companies I get to work with on a regular basis Brickyard Buffalo with Lorena Rosser behind the camera, check them both out!!
