My last shoot in Gainesville before we left for our cross-country tour/move was completely perfect because it was with my amazing fiance, Michael Aaron Photography, and my gorgeous best friend, Formaldehyde Flower.
We knew we wanted to shoot together before we left, but we didn’t know quite what we wanted to shoot, so we threw some stuff in the car and headed over to Formaldehyde Flower’s house. And after hanging out with all of her pets and catching up, we finally figured out what to shoot and set to getting ready.
We started out with a haunting goth setup in her dining room with beautiful red walls that were the perfect background for the mood we wanted. I love the tone of the photos and how they came out, and she had the absolute perfect wigs to pair up for our looks!
Then we changed into some matching lace lingerie (me in black, she in purple), grabbed a glass of wine, and headed out onto her back porch to lounge around sipping our drinks. Unfortunately it was incredibly mosquito-y outside and since we were wearing very little, we were getting eaten up. But the photos came out great, and we took a bunch of silly face photos at the end!
And to end the shoot I switched roles, and Formaldehyde Flower switched looks, and I shot her in an adorable pin-up set in her lavendar parlor on a beautiful wing-back chair that we’ve been trying to use in a shoot for over a year!
She is an amazing model who can span a huge variety of looks and can do a ton of looks with expert makeup and hair/wig styling. And she’s a captivating performer as a burlesque dancer with the Mischievous Madams Burlesque Troupe and The Manic Menagerie Vaudeville Company in Gainesville, Florida, as well as other location while she travels. Go see her perform!
These are just a few of photos from this awesome set, but there are a bunch more in my portfolio on here, and lots more than that on my various websites.
And the photoset of the two of us in lace lingerie was shot as a custom set for a fan. Want a set shot for you? (Although I can rarely pull off multiple models.) Find out how to get one here.
