Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith thank you for inviting me to your event in Asheville NC. There was so much creativity flowing through the room that night.
Sometimes light will hit some's face and it will be the only light I see. Just sitting around in Knoxville during the fashion week there I snapped this shot. Some people see me coming and do not mind a camera on them. Darian was so kind and a beautiful subject to shoot. This is a photo that helped me shape where I wanted my look to go. Classic Beauty.
Kimberly Serena: model
Inside the last days of the Jarret House before the remodel. We were allowed inside to create some art. Kimberly is very special to me. She is a kind spirit that is genuine to her core. During any and every shoot when I explain the concept and the look we are going for. I do not se her again til the end of the shoot. Talk about staying in character. Love*

Hindsight. Some will open their hearts and soul completely to allow me to see their truth. Oneself. This Virginia belle was one of them. Photography is tool that helps me capture at moments what I see in all of us. Love, Hate and Vulnerability~
Forever Thankful Kimberly
Masonic Temple, Asheville
Sometimes inspiration of creation will hit you at 3am. Right after the ONYX Ball 2015. The lights were from the lights that were there at the time. Use the light and objects in that space at that time and you can not fail. One of my favorites from 2015.
Sessions with Ann Arbor. Working with Ann Arbor has always been a amazing time for me. She used to be a very shy creature. No time for shyness for the rest of her life I can tell you that much*
Collaboration w/ RP
Charleston Fashion Week
I adore how all models walk. Some more than others but it's all a pretty pony show! I love it! The serious faux face knows she is gorgeous. Just a stroll on a lovely day~
We were just enjoying beings artists in each other's presence. So we decided to play and have a conversation. She is a incredible proud warrior with a face of a angel. We all have broken chipped or broken in some what shape or form, but will all rise if we want to. I never know how I'm going to edit until I get home and use the energy from the session. I think we did alright this day*
Christian Siriano finale.
Anytime I go to a fashion show I look for the angles that show me what the dress or garment looks like. Staright on is great for the many photographers getting that smae shot and selling it to the magazines as unique fashion shots. I was bored with the photographers pit before I even got there. Taking nothing away from the photographers there. Met a few good friends/contacts* My mind says in every shot/shoot has this been done before. "Of course yes!...Well do it different!"
Ok Brain, I will ;)
Thank you to Royal Peasantry Design House, Erin Hoffman, Tracie Acreman and Heather Barnett for helping with a amazing shoot!
There is light. On a recent shoot to Grove Park Inn I was was honored by being given access to explore the old Biltmore Industries building! What a treat!
