Billie Holiday

We embarked on a journey last year that had us combining the histories of Hollywood and Photography, both of what encompass our brand and our field. Each month this year we will showcase a photography piece from this project and tell you a little bit about it. Here is Miss Tracy Z. Francis who we transformed into the legend Billie Holiday. These photos were done in studio and required a look back into lighting and cameras of the time. We think she captured the spirit of Billie both on stage and the underlying sadness that surrounded the legend. This coupled with the mood we recreated gave us brilliant photos.ย ImageImageImageImage

Tables Turned

Screen Shot (800x518)What an odd thing to be the subject rather than the photographer, stylist, and producer of the shoot. Like new shoes,ย it’s slightly uncomfortable but when you realize how amazing they are, you ease into them. And so it has happened that the shoe, so to speak, has been placed on our collective other foot… For one evening, we moved from behind the camera to in front of it..all in the name of art.

Josh and I enjoy spending our time learning and playing…I mean working. ๐Ÿ™‚ We love transforming people and guiding them to bring visions to life. Our Old Hollywood icon project started off as merely an idea and a photoshoot. It has turned into our signature and embodies who we are both as people and as a company.

We were honored to have so many people at our exhibit debut. There were so many people, but Josh and I got around to meet almost everyone. How beautiful and unexpected it was to find this article printed online about us and about our exhibit. My heart did backflips when I saw our photo front and center. As I said, we are certainly not used to being on that side of the camera. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was almost too petrified to read. I understand COMPLETELY now why many clients say they do not read their reviewsof their films and such. That evening, I’m not sure we were even aware someone was taking notes and photos for magazine purposes. Well, someone was and what they have written and shared is a lovely review and so we wanted to share it with all of you.
