It’s amazing the way texture can change the feel of an image. In this photo we handed this shawl to Colleen and let her work with it and drape it as she liked. This simple prop brought a lot of dimension to the scene. Props like this can also fuel the viewer’s imagination and add depth to the story they may be seeing in the image.

Looking back to 2019 with this capture of the beautiful Colleen Callahan doing some jewelry modeling. I think she did a great job here even though the jewelry has a hard time getting any attention. Of course it’s not her fault she’s so captivating 🙂

I usually go light on my retouching but sometimes I like to turn up the wick and see what happens. Not every image can take turning up the processing to 11 but after restoring the color to this shot and cranking it up I’m rather pleased with the result. Of course Colleen is going to look lovely no matter what happened so I wasn’t to worried :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The lovely Colleen doin’ her thing 🙂
Rebecca really knows how to create that classic Hollywood vibe. Sure, I lit the scene and did my part in post processing, but she brought this look and attitude to the space in front of my camera.
Having Colleen in front of my camera always seems to “level up” the results. This image from our recent headshot session jumps right out of the screen thanks to her amazing presence.
