Creamy Fire Style Shoot with Alice



I decided to submit a photo to a contest the other day, so I went out for a shoot with the lovely Alice, musician and all around awesome person. I didn't get into the top ten like I wanted, but I'm still glad that I got out and did a shoot! The contest will have several assignments for the people who made it to the top, and I think I might try to do the assignments anyway just for the experience. I will definitely share those if I do them.


The assignment was to style and control a shoot using whatever subject you prefer to work with. It had to be a full-body shot using a prop that reflects your style. I decided to go for a really simple outfit and a fun relaxed style hat for Alice, who I picked because I enjoy shooting portrait/style type things. I wanted her beautiful hair to really stand out in them, so I kept everything else kind of muted. We used her guitar in some too since she's a musician.





My favorite is the one of her flipping her hair, and I'm kind of wishing now that I'd submitted that one. I submitted the top photo, and now looking at it, I think that wasn't the right one. But that's life I guess! You live and you learn. I'm hoping to do some more shoots like this in the future! I love to get out and do photo shoots that are just for me. Thanks, Alice, for humoring me and modeling in these!

Good for you submitting even if you're rethinking the photo choice now. That takes guts. I love her red hair by the way. I'd look absurd but I've always wanted red hair.

These are really great! I am loving how the red of her hair is mimicked in the tones of her guitar and that red door in the last photo. I think the second and the last pictures are my favorites. I am just continuously amazed at how talented you are!
