Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
I confess, I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day. I like the hearts, the chocolates, the romantic candlelight dinners, the silly and sappy cards, the cheesy movies…I love it all!
And, of course, nothing makes me happier than taking fun photos based on Valentine’s Day!
Last year, we got a variety of models together and created the fabulous candy-themed shoot. This year, we went with a single color theme, Red Couture. It was all kinds of awesome! Sexy, fun, and eye-catching. We used scarves, formals, jewelry, flowers, flowing satin fabric, faux furs…really anything we could think of. Some were subtle — like the gray fur with only subtle hints of color. Others were wild — like the crazy shapes the hair and make-up artist came up with using mesh netting. We played with red satin and a fan to create a sense of drama. And we even got a bit more fun (not to mention nostalgic) and did a few Carmen San Diego themed shots, all thanks to a scarlet fedora! All in all, we ended up with some killer moments.
And, as a fabulous bonus, PUMP Magazine — a high fashion and avant garde magazine published both online and in print — published a two-page spread featuring these fabulous models!
Enjoy your Valentine’s Day! Celebrate love and romance. Treat your favorite person to something special.
