It was just over a year ago when Janet from By Alpha Couture contacted me to photograph some of her custom hats and facinators.  You can see those images here.  I remember discussing how great it would be to have some live models to photograph them on.  Well a lot can happen in a year and not only did we get some live models but a fashion shot as well.  The shots were a quick step with simple soft box and kicker light but they look amazing!  Thank you to all the models for all their time!

This time of year is real slow for us outdoor environmental portrait photographers, especially in Maine where there are 6 foot snow banks, so when Janet of By Alpha Couture contacted me to photograph her gorgeous hats I just couldn’t resist.  These hats are incredibly unique and colorful with accents and fine details that deserve to be captured in camera.  The whole shoot was done at f11 to capture every nuance of detail with a 2 foot soft box, white foam core board as fill and a background light.    I love these.. they are different, sophisticated and beautiful.  I’m looking forward to photographing these on a live model and bring some real high fashion to the state of Maine.  If you would like to model (Time for CD) please contact me.  Check out Janet’s site in a week or two to see these images in action at http://www.byalphacouture.com

Soon the Harley Street Clinic will be conducting an auction to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.  What a great cause and perfect reason to contribute with a quick photo sessions after work.  It was a 15 min session staring Jocelyn who did a fantastic job showing off this dress soon to be auctioned off to the lucky and generous bidder.  Here’s a little sample of the shoot.
