From the moment I met her, I hoped for the opportunity to photograph lovely Jen and those spectacularly radiant eyes. Jen has been to the studio a couple of times now. She’s remarkably comfortable in front of the camera, and extraordinarily patient with me.
It turns out Jen is also a skilled, and reasonably priced Licensed Massage Therapist doing business independently as Jen’s Healing Room (Warner & 101 area). You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org for a recuperative, or just a blissfully relaxing hour.
My daughter, Alicia, was in Phoenix for a few days recently. While here, I invited friend and stylist, Beth Anne Johnson, over to work together on a session with Alicia. Beth Anne and Alicia discovered my mother’s mink stole in the prop closet, which served as the jumping off point for what you see above.
I don’t anticipate vintage portraiture to become a genre I’ll seriously pursue – though the shoot was, and the results are, a lot of fun. And I know my mother would be tickled.
It’s appropriate that my first portrait blog post is an outtake of my favorite model – my wife, Amy.
If you’ve checked out my web site, jeffreypiersonstudio.com, you’ll note a number of portraits of Amy – many taken spontaneously as I was working through something new. I’m fortunate that Amy is willing, at a moment’s notice, to sit for a new light set, or backdrop, or exposure test.
Amy is a wonderful wife and partner, and an incredible model.
