Kendra, OMG, so stinking cute! ¬†Eisla is beyond adorable, those eyes…those perfect lips! ¬†Gorgeous! ¬†Thank you for playing a little dress up in the studio the other day for her first birthday! ¬†Great job bringing all the cute outfits! ¬†They looked so great with Heavenly Avonlee’s headpieces on her! ¬†Also, we have to mention little Mr. Easton, what a cutie and such a sweet child. ¬†Really enjoyed having him in the studio as well for some portraits really fast. ¬†He even allowed us to put on one of Gold Coast Goods adorable little man ties! ¬†These are the little details I feel that make the styling that much more perfect! ¬†Also, in the background I did use some of Dark Pony Designs tulle skirts as the backdrop. ¬†Thank you to all the other creatives who have let me use their creations in the studio!

Can’t wait for our Fall session together in a meadow with more room to run! lol! ¬†Though, I think it went pretty well in the studio…just they kept us on our toes, which is good! lol!

Jackson turns one and below are some images of maybe the most photogenic baby boy I have ever seen! lol! ¬†Thank you so much Shannon, Andrew, Jackson’s grandma…which I am spacing your name right now…sorry, I tend to forget names…and to Jackson. ¬†Seriously, Shannon and Andrew, your child is beyond cute! ¬†I refer to him as the new Gerber baby whenever I mention his shoots to anyone.

Shannon, thank you for the extra details you brought to the shoot.  Loved the little tassels for the background and the tie.  This really opened my eyes to needing more boy props for my cake smashes!  So, I have gotten in touch with a talented local artist by the name of Jan Kearns, she and her daughter have created a boutique bowtie business by the name of Gold Coast Goods.  She and I have decided to work together and I will be able to use some of her super cute bowties, be sure to check out their site.  Not to mention, once I have those ties in my hands, I will will be getting little matching background tassels for future shoots.  So, thank you Shannon, I really appreciate you!

Want to see little Jackson grow up before your eyes? ¬†Check out Shannon’s Maternity Session, Jackson’s¬†Newborn Session,¬†and¬†6 Month Baby Session. ¬†It is always such an honor to be asked to take someones portraits again, I feel very lucky to get to do what I do. ¬†Seeing someone grow right before my eyes and the love that is shared between one another.

Looking forward to our spring Family Portrait session in the purple flowers once they bloom!  Which I am setting a reminder right now to take a drive by there tomorrow!  I noticed in town that a lot of the white flowers are starting to bloom!!!!!

If you are interested in a Baby Cake Smash¬†session like this, please contact me. ¬†To view of my maternity work, please visit my blog category Maternity HERE. ¬†To view other photography services I offer, please take a looksie HERE. ¬†So excited we are finally having some sunlight! ¬†I am so ready to enjoy the light again, I have been a bit of a vampire recently… ūüôā

So, first things first…Kya, you are beautiful. ¬†There are more images of Kya, but since it does show the nude image by Helmut Newton behind her, we decided not to show those images since she is a minor and my daughter. ¬†A bummer, because they were really cool…oh well…sorry Kya. ¬†Also, wanted to thank you to both, Kya and Robin for helping me test light yesterday before Chloee came over. ¬†Kya took first shift of testing light until I got it the way I wanted, and then Robin came over to drop off the necklace featured in the shoot. ¬†So, I tested one more time with what I had with Kya on Robin, just for fun. ¬†I really like the image of Robin¬†below…it make me curious. ¬†Incase anyone wants to know, Kya was super sick while I tested light and Robin was on way to the gym. ¬†She was wearing the fur to cover workout outfit. ¬†Love it. ¬†Which almost tells it’s own story of a woman hiding behind her fur/clothing in comparison to the contrasting nude behind her.

I wanted to do something that involved Helmut Newton for this weeks light test. ¬†Helmut Newton is a very edgy erotic type of fashion photographer, considered one of the very greats. ¬†Plus, the other night I watched his films, not for the first time either, as I worked. ¬†I was intrigued and wanted to¬†try create an editorial look that was ‘provocative, erotically charged’, like Helmut Newton. ¬†Wanted to make it very clear, that the image of the nude woman is not my work, it is a still from a frame in his documentary Frames From the Edge. ¬†Also, starting 1 June 2016 the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin will open its new exhibition, Alice Springs: The Mep Show | Helmut Newton: Yellow Press | Mart Engelen: Portraits, where you can see some of these ‘amazon women.’ ¬†

I do think that Chloee’s images as gorgeous as they are, might be a little too sexy vs editorial. ¬†Not that this is a bad thing, but after I looked at my test images, I realized that I think that a more serious sensual editorial type image is what I am looking for. ¬†As the photographer I should of seen this and pushed for a more editorial look that I had envisioned and I need to spend a LOT more time studying Helmut Newton’s work. ¬†Chloee did such a wonderful job, this is not her fault at all the images were so sexy, just a lesson for me. ¬†So, something I need to look for when I am shooting. Good lesson to learn, which is why I really like these weekly tests. ¬†Every time I test I am never happy with my result for many reasons, but I do really like learning from these mistakes. Though, I am still a little conflicted because this shoot was based off a necklace by Dark Pony Designs called ‘Nasty’. ¬†So, is it too sexy? ¬†Hmmmm…. Having said all of that, Chloee’s images are¬†a good representation of boudoir type of images I like to create for women. ¬†You can check out my boudoir work over at my other site ¬†Solorio. ¬†I still love taking boudoir images as part of my normal portrait business.

To see Chloee’s sultry vampy images please visit my other portfolio over at Jamie Solorio.

Shoot inspired by Helmut Newton video ‘Frames From the Edge’. ¬†Image of naked woman projected is by Helmut Newton.

What Nick wrote the night after his daughter was born, “Jess gave birth to our beautiful Baby girl last night. ¬†Scarlett 6lbs 13 oz, 20 inches long. She stole our hearts at first glance, We couldn’t ask for anything more, she’s perfect. I’m so proud of Jess who did a natural birth, so strong and brave, I love you both!” ¬†Scarlett was born October 1st, 2016.

So, as many of you know…I do not like to do sleepy newborn portraits. ¬†Why? ¬†Well, let me tell you why…I have a super anxious nervous energy around them and they can sense it! ¬†So, when my friends Nick and Jessica had their baby, I thought I would give it another go. ¬†So, here is my attempt with Jessica and I working together as a team to pose perfect little Scarlett. ¬†I am reconsidering doing ONE sleeping baby shot possibly in the future, we shall see. ¬†Jessica, thanks for deciding to take me up on the offer last minute like that! ¬†You looked so glowy and gorgeous! ¬†Motherhood fits you!

What I do love to do is take First Night portraits at the hospital the night he/she is born or Lifestyle Newborn portraits once settled in at home.  Of course, we always have to begin with a little fun maternity session!

Thought I would feature our collaborative work on my portrait blog as well as my commercial site, Jamie Solorio.  However, on the commercial site I am only showing a select few images, while here more.   Want to see The Behind the Scenes, featuring our collaborators each with their own unique talents and skill sets?  So thankful for this team we have created!  Full list of collaborators at bottom of post.

Title: Beyond Bridal: Romantic Melancholy
Date: February 26th, 2016
Location of Shoot: Jamie Solorio Photography Studio
Taking classic wedding colors to the next level by juxtaposing their softness with grunge details. Modern princess meets 90’s Grunge with smokey eyes, tousled hair, and a moody attitude. A beautiful fantasy, where even the most feminine of girls has an edge.
In our shoot we styled the bride beyond the traditional white wedding dress and explored the idea of taking classic wedding colors to the next level. We gave our bride a fashion forward, grunge vibe while maintaining her delicate beauty. The studio design also plays with the idea of a classic romantic fantasy, while keeping the focus on the bride. By combining vintage and handmade garments we created a unique style to inspire the young, chic bride to be who loves to be a little edgy.  This shoot features a handmade wedding gown by Dark Pony Designs and an artisan bouquet by the Floranthropist.
Wedding gown, veil, ribbon bra top, gold chain and tulle skirt by dark pony designs. All other clothing and accessories vintage.
