  • SENIOR MODEL FEATURE: Azucena - Germantown HS, Class of 2017

    We split our model sessions into two different days, this week's blog feature is of Azucena or Aza. She's our fifth model being celebrated, wrapping up our models from the first session. I'm a big fan of the transformation from these sessions and Aza's transformation did not disappoint! Before I show it off, huge thank-you to our immaculate styling team for Aza!

    Hair was styled by: Hair Fiddlers located in Hales Corners, WI 
    Lorraines makeup was applied by: Sarah Murillo Artistry

    Aza is an awesome addition to the model team, she's not only extremely talented and photogenic, but I love her look and personal style.

    I'm crazy biased, naturally, but I think my models are already (hands down), amazing. There's just so much that they had to adapt to on the spot and each one of them nailed it. Aza's prom dress color, paired with her hair color, made it INCREDIBLY difficult to narrow down her final edits.

A bit about me: I'm based in South Milwaukee, WI - I've earned a BFA with a concentration in Multimedia Design, and also a minor degree in Applied Photography in May 2013. I'm not a fan of getting my own photo taken - despite the fact that I LOVE taking portraits of everyone else! ...Weird, I know.

The only photos I have of myself are over-the-top faces, or me laughing ridiculously hard (to the point of tears), or like this one to the side of me - bungee jumping above an itty bitty stream amongst HUGE mountains in New Zealand - yes, I loved it, yes, I almost kissed the ground afterwards! But enough about me, onto photography! My style is:

TIMELESS. CREATIVE. GORGEOUS. & MODERN.

I'm constantly trying to grow, learn, try new approaches, create unique concepts, and scope out ordinary spots transform them into something spectacular. One of my favorite phrases, besides the classic, "I LOVE YOUR FACE!" is that: I'm in the business of creating statement pieces. You can see current work by visiting my collection.

My finished work tends to be colorful and theatrical. I'm constantly thinking up new ways of creating amazing experiences for my clients - with images you'll LOVE and remember. While the photos may look bold, elegant, and edgy, the actual process is incredibly laid back, fun, and casual - with just a dash (or a large bowl-full) of wit and humor. As I can be just a tiny bit rambunctious.

Every session is different from the last. The parts that stay consistent are myself, my camera and my goal, which is highlighting YOU. My top priority is making sure the person in front of the camera is feeling just as relaxed as I am behind the camera, it's a lot of fun, and I love working with people and the process of taking great images. If you're interested in information regarding how you can be the next person in front of my lens - contact me for information.

Consider this your informal invitation to be my favorite new face!
