Desert Fairytale

January 22, 2017

Last month, I had the honor of working with a young model, Yanellis Linares.  We had tried to schedule sessions to work together, but our schedules never synced.  Fortunately, things worked out, and we worked together during her winter break.  She's a student, and an aspiring model.  Our contacted Renalda Bly, who I've worked with before, to provide the make-up for the session.  I purchased the outfit from Photographers Prop Shop for the session, and I knew that Yanellis would be perfect for the outfit.   Both she and Renalda brought my vision to life.

The session was completed in a local park in Phoenix.  The session went so well, and we were together for almost three hours.  I went into the session with the goal of seeking publication. I submitted the images to five magazines for consideration, and I received notification yesterday that two of the images will be published in a February issue of a national magazine.  Once the issue is published, I'll share the name of the magazine as well as the images that were published.  For now, here are a few of my favorites.
