Heaven In Hiding // Chicago Model Brooce

Have you met Brooce yet?
If you haven’t, let me give you the lowdown. She’s down to earth. She’s got an infectious laugh. She’s one of Jasemine Denise Photography’s 2018 models, and creating couture fantasy looks is how poison. Trapped in a our world, Chicago model Brooce can be better described as a fairy– a majestic creature who has not yet taken full form. Don’t worry. You’ll get to watch her evolution live on JDcom as she unleashes all her wildest creative inhibitions.

Heaven In Hiding // Chicago Model
Brooce

They always say Heaven is a place on earth with you…

Angels hear it everyday. What they never tell you is that once you step out of heaven’s gates to find your place on earth… You can’t turn back.

They never tell you that if you lose your heaven… That there’s no getting it back. Heaven is a place on earth but on earth there are also other things. There are demons. There is destruction. Once you step down from grace, you are a mortal.. You are someone else’s heaven. You are hiding in the beauty of something you once chased.

It’s not all bad.

Taking the plunge means that you become someone else’s heaven. You are someone else’s light. You bring life to them that they weren’t exactly looking for but are glad they found. Yet, what happens when you become the darkness? What happens when the angel turns her back on paradise and becomes Heaven in Hiding.

Where will you go when you go into hiding?

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

It’s October! Can you believe it’s still in the sixties here? I’m trying to whip out all my Halloween fashion looks, including this one in my new fur bomber jacket gifted to me by Keeley and Megan, but… Well goodness, it’s still freaking toasty outside! It didn’t stop me though. I had to serve this look.

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

Everyday is Halloween

I’ve only had a handful of Halloween costumes my whole life. I think that contributes a lot to the style I have. I was Tickle Me Elmo in Kindergarten, complete with a vibrating one piece suit that didn’t run out of batteries. I think I was Esmerelda one year too. By the time I hit my senior year, my entire aesthetic was Halloween fashion. People would walk past me and say “It aint Halloween yet, girl!” and I’d scoff and say “Everyday is Halloween!”

Speaking of Halloween, let’s talk about this headpiece.

Kalika, a model you’ve seen on my Instagram a thousand times, and will see again in just a few weeks is a woman of many talents. She’s a model, she’s a spooky movie enthusiast, and she’s just an all around creative gal.

She made this crown.

Look at the diamond eyes. LOOK AT THE EYES!!! I couldn’t have formed something this creative if my life depended on it, but let’s be honest… I’d probably hot glue my hand to my face by accident if I tried. In case you didn’t know, it takes me forever to craft things.

Underneath that is a ton of my favorite SKG Gear.

I wear my Jasemine harnesses everywhere. Yes, I have two of them, and yes. They are named after me. That’s not bragging. It’s literally the biggest honor ever bestowed upon me because SKG’s leather line… Ugh. HEART EYE. Remember that you can get a discount on your SKG orders anytime by using my code JasemineDenise.

The one I’m rocking on my chest in this outfit, is a custom colored one. Half red leather, half black… because yes. SKG makes red leather options now.

I’m obviously a huge Shop Kinky Girly supporter. I love the way I can style almost every single thing I own with anything. It always seems like there’s an accessory for every outfit. For instance, the Lina collar… Went perfectly with this outfit. All the O rings!!

No outfit would be complete without my boss socks. I had been looking for them for ages and Ray finally found the missing one. Though they don’t exactly match the outfit, they still fit into the fur coat badass woman aesthetic so I threw them in.

Have you been waiting for October to show off your Halloween fashion?

I want to see! Comment this blog post with your favorite Halloween fashion look, your outfit of the days, or pretty much just anything that screams spooky fashion. I love checking out other outfits!

Couples Photography

Bec and Angelo // Chicago Photographer Jasemine Denise

I say it all the time, that I love love. Being a Chicago photographer has changed the way I’ve looked at love. Seriously. I’ve come across every sort of relationship you could think of. There are things about love that never change though. The way a couple shifts nervously for their first photoshoot together. The way they quest for direction but as soon as you’ve snapped the first picture and given them a little space, they’re in their own little world… They’re in love. I never eavesdrop on the voices sweetly talking to one another. I just know that they feel safe. All that being said, this Chicago photographer is proud to bring you…

Bec and Angelo // Love

No matter how long it is, when a couple tells me how long they’ve been together, I’m proud. It typically sounds like I’m shocked because I’m overwhelmed with pride. For Bec and Angelo, it’s been four years. They’re a fun couple. You could seen the connection from a mile away.

It’s one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever seen when you see people just disappear into their own world, a world they created together.

Aren’t they beautiful?

Cosplay Photography

Black Canary Cosplay – Rose Romanova

Let me start this off by saying that Rose Romanova is amazing. Her Black Canary cosplay? Uneblievable! I know, I know. I say that about all the models, cosplayers and clients that I work with but seriously. That’s because they’re all amazing. Stick around, because you’re about to be impressed. With a capital I.

Black Canary Cosplay | Rose Romanova

The only way out of here is through me. I hope you’re stupid enough to try. – Black Canary

What can I even say about this badass cosplay? When Rose stepped into the dark room that housed the screams and pain of a million fallen soldiers, there was power in every single step. She in that moment was Black Canary. Gone was the down to earth bubbly girl who had just politely pet my dogs who were trying to eat the handmade elements of her costume… Now, in my presence was a fighter… A woman who would not stand for defeat.

The room was filled with nothing but high kicks and a t t i t u d e. 
Anyone who stepped into that sacred space knew better. At least, for their sake… I hoped so.

As she stepped into the light, I realized that Canary wasn’t just tough… She was beautiful. 

And just when you thought this Black Canary Cosplay couldn’t get any more badass..

It would be fitting that the first thing I noticed on Black Canary’s bike was the word Triumph. This woman looked as though she had dominated every stereotype pressed against her and said “I am badass.”

My father was a cop. I married a cop. I was meant to be a cop. But this city didn’t want a female detective. – Black Canary

ROAD RASH!!! Did you dig the shoot?

I definitely can’t wait to work with Rose again. Her Black Canary Cosplay is just one of the very few awesome cosplays she’s created herself. Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more of her cosplays. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog for more awesome shoots from your favorite Chicago photographer!
