Painting Miranda Bennett (Austin, TX Fashion Photography)

This editorial I shot for our Chiaroscuro issue of Velvet Dust was inspired by Miranda Bennett's beautifully hand dyed line of clothing. I wanted to create the illusion of our model looking more like a painting with soft focus, blur, & statuesque poses. I absolutely love the colors- the neutrals and pops of orange and indigo. One of these days, I'll definitely be adding one of Miranda's pieces to be collection. Enjoy!

Ben and I are currently enjoying two beautiful months in Australia for the holidays. In the spirit of being Down Under, I wanted to share an editorial from our Sport issue of Velvet Dust. While these talented little yogis hail from Austin, TX, the images behind the images were all taken around Australia on my trip last year. A little random but I love how it pumps up the photos just a bit. Enjoy!

Every New Year's Day, I always make some goal related to working out and I know some of you probably do too. In the spirit of resolutions, here are some favorites and outtakes from our Sport issue of Velvet Dust.

Pastels (McKinney Falls Photo Shoot)

I'm currently enjoying SUMMER TIME in Australia which feels a little odd. Instead of being bundled up in a sweater for Christmas time, I'll be hanging out on a beach in my bathing suit. In honor of my American roots, I wanted to share some favorites and outtakes from this editorial that's full of beanies and scarves. Stay warm, America and enjoy the sunshine, Australia! Happy Holidays everybody! :)
