Rachel Dashae "Like Gold Dust"

These photos were taken on an apartment rooftop overlooking Richmond, Virginia (with an immaculate view of the city). Rachel has the most amazing long, dark hair which is the perfect contrast to her striking light green eyes.

Rachel Dashae “Instax Gratification”

RVA Model Photographer

Back in November I took a short road trip with one of my friends through Richmond, Virginia and up to Washington DC photographing models for a website called Zivity.  This set of Rachel Dashae titled “Instax Gratification” was shot with my new Fuji Instax camera at Maymont Park in RVA.

Alexa Poletti "Falling Light"

Time for another set of photos from my road trip back in November! These were taken at Fort Hunt Park in Alexandria, Virginia. Alexa is wearing "Farrah" from Gothic Lolita Wigs and circle contact lenses from Honey Color which totally transformed her look from the other two photo-shoots we did that day. Make sure you check out Alexa Poletti on Facebook, she is such a sweet model and she's also a photographer so she brings a fun and unique perspective to the table.

Alexa Poletti “Au Natural Alexa”

Washington, DC Model Photographer

As a muse/representative for Rockstar Wigs, Gothic Lolita Wigs, and HoneyColor Circle Lenses, Alexa Poletti is usually seen rocking colorful wigs and contact lenses. We decided to shoot a natural set of Alexa on my road trip back in November, no wigs, no contacts, just the beautiful, talented woman behind them. When I posted one of these photos on Facebook there was much speculation about the leggings, so I’ll just go ahead and tell you that they are “Call of Napoleon Leggings” by Black Milk and yes, I did brighten up the colors a bit in the editing process.

Rachel Dashae “Dans le Jardin”

RVA Model Photographer

Back in November I took a mini-road trip through Richmond, Virginia and up to Washington, DC with one of my friends to work with a few models on photo sets for a site called Zivity (kind of like Suicide Girls, but with much more creative freedom). This photo shoot was for a set called “Dans le Jardin”.  It took place in one of the gardens at Maymont Park in RVA. The location was gorgeous, flowers were blooming everywhere even though it was already late fall, I can only imagine how beautiful it will be in the spring. I definitely plan on returning to Richmond sometime in the spring to find out. It was so nice to finally meet Rachel Dashae in person, she is a truly amazing model whose work I had admired online for quite some time.

This shoot was the first time I got to use my Fuji Instax camera, I got some really great shots from it!  I made the long tutu myself out of a bolt of tulle I had lying around my house a couple of nights before I hit the road because I’m a crafty kid like that.
