Steampunk Shoot Last March 2017

Hello Lovelies:

As I prep new work, I wanted to do one last revisit of a shoot from last year as I received NEW pics from the photographers Kim Ackerman and Ken Schmidt!

There are times when I, quite frankly, manage to pull creativity out of my, ahem, behind. I was approached to do this shoot during the same time I had a one night show at the Science Center, a month long Steampunk Broken Hearts Ball at 1900 Park that included an art opening, a party/multi-media entertainment and fashion show, and unfortunately, the passing of my sister after a long battle with MS. She died on Easter the night before the shoot. Sometimes when I’m suffering the most, I manage to crank out the best work. This was one of those scenarios. And with the support and artistry of the models and photographers, stunning magic ensued.

Enjoy the photos and the video link from my YouTube channel. Kim’s photos are marked with Vogue Portrait Studios (Ken’s are not).
