Improvision Anyone...

Over this past weekend my brother visited from Los Angeles and he wanted to do a few shoots. He really wanted to do a more sensual shoot and use a hotel room but the budget didn't allow. So, we did what we do best...Improvise. Yep, I'm the queen of improvision, I will DIY and make something out of nothing. I put these little hands to work doing all kinds of projects that aren't just limited to photography. But, anyway! I love to make my clients visions a reality, especially since this client was my brother.

I thought to myself, "Hmmm, I can definitely pull off the hotel vibes. Why not use my own bedroom? That's right, my own bedroom! Ohhh, I'll sacrifice almost anything for a photo shoot. Listen! It's just a photographer's thing! We'll go anywhere and do almost anything to get the shot we want; stand on a table, roll on the ground, cramp ourselves in a corner AND use our own D@MN bedroom! So, this was kind of perfect because I had a brand new comforter set stored away in my closet. What better timing than to incorporate it into a shoot! Hello, Paris! That's the theme of my comforter set!

...And yes, for those people that look very hard into an image! That is my laptop and a some cookies in a zip lock bag. Hey! Don't judge me this was pre-shoot shenanigans, I just shot this quick image to see if it was giving the vibes we were looking for and VOILA, it did. So, of course I moved the laptop and the cookies, brought up the lights from the studio, and we got started on the shoot. I think it was a success! But, I'll let you be the judge of that. I believe he got a few instagram worthy shots to post on IG for his 14.2K followers (but, who's counting). Now, if you think we pulled it off, leave a comment below and tell us what you think.

Side note: I wrote this post to let you know not to place debilitating limits on yourself, if there's a will then there's a way! I know it sounds cliche but if you can believe it, you can achieve it. Imagination and creativity is limitless. Fear is the only thing that will limit you from taking risks, believing in yourself, and following your dreams. Just know that if know has told you, you're simply amazing! I also wrote this post to let my clients and potential clients know that I truly love my craft and I will go above and beyond to make sure you have the shoot you envisioned. Until next time, "Je t'aime!" Yes, I'm still rolling with the french theme! Smooches!
