Arizona Photographer , February RED

Arizona Photographer , February RED

Loved photographing RED for the month of February, and many apologies this is coming about two days late. When I had thought of the month of RED, I kept envisioning a red hat and red lipstick. I went searching for my hat prop on EBAY and ETSY, and finally found the one that I had in mind for the look I was going for. I photographed these in studio, with my oldest daughter and model Hannah. I used a simple one light set up with my AB-400 Alien Bee strobe, and 6 foot octobox. Love this Octobox, as it wraps beautiful lighting around my subjects. Some of her images I use my Lensbaby Composer pro, after being inspired by Sara over at MY FOUR HENS, http://myfourhensphotography.com who was having a LENSBABY contest. Reminded me to break out my creative glass and have some fun. http://lensbaby.com  I wanted my light to be dramatic and dreamy. I photographed probably 150 images and wanted to share my favorite with all of you. I love Jessica Drossin Textures, they always add to that dramatic look that I am going for when planning these styled sessions, and give me it that dreamy edge I desire. If you all haven’t seen or tried her textures in your photographs I highly recommend trying them. They are fantastic and, her photography if also super inspirational.   You can visit here to see her work and textures. http://jessicadrossin.com/store-textures/ I am looking forward to March’s photography challenge. You all may participate, by emailing your images in for a chance to be featured on my blog melissa@melissadonaldsonphotography.com

 

 

Much love and blessings,

WELCOME

Hi there, I am Melissa. We moved to Arizona when I was five years old, so I consider myself a desert native. I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to an amazingly loving and extremely intelligent man, and a lover of animals. (We live on a small farm) I am the proud pet owner of a Chocolate Lab, miniature wiener dog, 26 chickens, 2 goats, a horse, and a miniature horse named Switch. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and 13 years ago I was able to form a successful small business doing what I love. I feel so blessed that God gave me this gift that I can pass along to others and bless them with.
