Come one, come all! This is the photoshoot that I have been talking about for over a month now. It was a lot of work, a lot of planning, and a lot of excitement. As some of you may know, fashion is my primary love when it comes to photography. There's so many creative ways that you can show off hair, makeup, and clothes. It never ceases to blow my mind. So, when I got the message offering me the chance to photograph Alice Ness' idea, I believe time stood still for a moment. I would do it again in a heartbeat. We worked in a minimal space, but accomplished so much. Alice did such a beautiful job on these girls. I highly recommend you visit her website and glance through her portfolio and call her asap. She is a true visionary and wonderful to work with. We collaborated and I present you with the results. Each model had their own story and played their own part. Our collaboration created the story of a lifetime. That's what the circus is all about, right? ;)

\\ Special Thanks // 

I know this is very cheesy and cliche, but it's necessary. There's a couple of people that I would like to thank for helping me with this photoshoot. First and foremost, I want to thank my dear friend, Laiken Summerson (whom you've seen in the "Flora|Fauna" photoshoot). She has helped spread the word about my work and was the person who help set up this photoshoot and make it happen. A million, million times, thank you Laiken. :)

I want to thank my professor and mentor at Shepherd University, Rick Bruner, for allowing me to borrow and obscene amount of lighting equipment and truck it back and forth from WV to VA to MD and then back to VA to WV. Thank you for giving a helping hand yet again, even after I've graduated. It means a lot to me.

And a very special thank you to my boyfriend, Matt, for supporting me through this entire process and for supporting me throughout my entire photography career and for the many years to follow. You've helped my tremendously during this shoot and many in the past, but you've also encouraged me through and through. Thank you. :)

Thank you everyone for your support! I'm very proud of this photoshoot and I hope to do many more in the future. <3
