I can’t tell you how much I’d been dying to shoot with the amazing photographer J Isobel De Lisle. So much so that I almost didn’t send her a message about shooting when I scheduled my trip up to Philly. I was absolutely convinced she’d laugh at me or something.
Obviously I was wrong and our shoot was one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever done.
It was sexy, messy, wet, taco-y (yes, taco-y)… perfect!
We shot in her awesome photo-shed for her mattress series first. She’s since stopped shooting for it, but the collection of images she has in the series are breathtaking. She’s shot pretty much all of my favorite models for it.
And on top of the images being awesome, they were published in the October (or November… I’m not really sure because it took 6 months for me to get mine from them) edition of Licked Magazine (which also has some of my other favorite photographers in it, along with some stunning models.

Next we shot for her drool series, which is super badass.
I won’t tell you the substance she uses, but it was a blast to shoot!
I love messy shoots, because they’re pretty much guaranteed to be awesome, and I think my fiance enjoyed it also (since he got to pour a bunch all over me, lol).
She’s also shot some epic shots with other amazing models for it (using a variety of messy things). You should check those out also, because you definitely won’t be disappointed.
Seeing pretty naked girls look crazy or glamorous or even sexy while covered in all manner of mess = awesome.
The third thing we shot was in this great outdoor shower in her backyard. The atmosphere of the images she’s gotten in this series is amazing. And to think, right before them I was covered in sticky goo! 😛
The way she captured the water falling, my makeup running, and everything else is just beautiful.
If you have the chance to work with her, you should jump on it. And pay her, too. 😛
Not only will the photos turn out amazing, but the experience will be awesome.
