Nicole Pretty Pictures in the studio { Hudson Valley Headshot Photographer }

I sure did have a nice weekend this weekend.  The fiance and I spent Sunday running errands, but the fun part is realizing how much fun we have together.  We really do enjoy each others company so much, and we make running errands fun.  I know we’re a bit gross, but whatever.  Hell we even finished off the day with some doughnuts from Dunkin.  And if that’s not a way to finish out a day, I don’t know what is.

Lynzi was running around pulling together some props for a shoot she wants to do that’s very Tim Walker.  I’m excited to see how her shots turn out.  I already helped her figure out what she wanted to do with the lighting so she could get

Hudson Valley Fashion Beauty Photographer { Savannah In the Studio}

It’s pretty rare for me to shoot beauty.  I can do it, but I don’t typically.  I guess I just don’t have a client base that usually needs beauty.  If anyone knows a beauty company in Hudson Valley that needs work done, I’d love to put together a shoot, but I think it’s pretty rare in these parts.

This shoot was actually a ton of fun.  Me and my studio mate really wanted to figure out a very specific kind of lighting setup.  Which isn’t pictured here. In the end Lynzi did most of the shooting, and I just came in at the end because I wanted to get at least one good beauty shot before we all left the studio.  For this shot I went with something very simple.  I believe it was just a softbox off to camera

Fashion Photographer in Hudson Valley { A shoot with Demery }

I’ve been doing so much fashion photography lately, and I just love it.  It’s such a blast for me to be able to be super creative.  I love being able to come up with things that I can’t do on wedding or engagement photography.  Because of all that I finally rented my own studio space.  Which is awesome!  I’m so excited about it.  I just moved in a few days ago, and already I’m super happy about it.  It gives me the space I need to really work, which is something that i just couldn’t do when I was shooting out of my garage.  So here’s to me taking my photography to the next level!  Wish me luck.

Hudson Valley Fashion Photographer { Rebecca and Sidney.... What a pair }

In the interest of getting better and posting more frequently…. I’m going to start posting more pictures from my shoots and less discussion.  If you’re interested in knowing more about my lighting, hit me up in the comments and I’ll be glad to help you out.

These 2 girls were such a pair, we worked together on a bit of portfolio building for all of us, and man did we have some fun.  Here are a few of the different looks we were able to come up with while they were in my studio.

I should say Rebecca (the one in the orange shirt up there), is a helluva photographer in her own right, which is always interesting working with another photographer.  It can be bot
