Ed from Our Town Records and Filmworks contacted me about Chalon, a jazz vocalist he had under his label that needed head shots and possible cover photo for her CD. I gladly took on this somewhat different genre of photography as I had been shooting engagements/weddings non-stop for the past 4 months.
Met Chalon and her mom and dad @ El Cortez. It’s always great when family is behind you in your endeavors and it was clear hers were. LOL, her dad did quickly disappear upon shaking my hand, but that’s understandable….at weddings, I have grooms at times begging me to end the after ceremony photos but I can’t because it’s the bride who’s in command that day! We started outdoors and as usual (I don’t normally tell this to new models) but first outfits and first sets are just really warm-ups but Chalon looked great in a ton of the first set photos.
We worked the stairwell we found in El Cortez and luckily for us security didn’t stop us from taking any photos and then went back outside for some more photos, which again turned out great. It’s always easy to get great photos when your subject is very good looking. Overall for her first time, she did outstanding and we got some great images! I’ll add them as I finish editing them below. We’re tentatively scheduled to shoot @ Calico Basin early this week and those will be added below as well when they are taken/edited. Enjoy the photos
