Sailor Moon Cosplay – Ebby – JDP

Sailor Moon cosplay, you say? Yes! This is no ordinary Sailor Moon Cosplay though. Things are about to get M A G I C A L. I got the honor of working with the gorgeous @chibimagicalgirl​ during my last trip to Atlanta and wow did she kill it. As a special edition version of Sailor Moon, she summoned all the black girl magic I could possibly envision in such a gorgeous shoot. This is no ordinary Sailor Moon cosplay. It’s actually a fan cosplay made from a digital fan art by asieybarbie.

Sailor Moon Cosplay // Ebby

Ebby is an Atlanta cosplayer who puts the adorable in adorable. No, it’s not a typo… She’s just that cute. Armed with an amazing and fully functional wand, this Sailor Moon is absolutely ready for the cuteness of being in front of the camera.

Absolutely Magical Right?

I was absolutely in love with this Sailor Moon cosplay, so much that I started seeing double! Two Sailor Moons! You’ll see the other one soon, but in the meantime… You can check out more cosplay photoshoots here and don’t forget to follow Ebby on Instagram!

Oxi Lox – Photoshoot // Believe In Yourself

Oxi Lox is a walking life lesson that everyone deserves to know. She’s not just rainbow hair and really awesome badass watercolor ink. She’s an inspiration.  When I was little, I was obsessed with the song Believe in Yourself from Sesame Street. Don’t worry, this is relevant. Growing up, I wanted to be this cool person and it was hard. The world has no map pack on how much is too much or who will believe in you, but you learn a valuable lesson the moment you make the decision that you’re going to be yourself. When I first met Oxi, I was in awe.. Who wouldn’t be? I may not have believed in myself as strongly as I do now, but best believe I believed in Oxi.

Portrait Session: Shae for B Ivy Creations

Hello there Kings and Queens! While I’ve been dabbling in the new studio we’ve been building from the floor up, I never imagined I’d be making such beautiful things in it so soon. I’m a lover of all things vintage but I must admit that this work of art you’re about to witness isn’t courtesy of me. I mean, sureeee. I’m the photographer, but all the styling is done by the model Shae, the hairstylist Brandon Ivy, and his gorgeous wife and makeup enthusiast, Denise.  So are you ready to witness the first official B Ivy Creations x Jasemine Denise Photography collaboration?

Portrait Session: Shae

B Ivy Creations x Jasemine Denise Photography

When Brandon first introduced me to Shae, I must admit that I was mind blown. She’s stunning like a porcelain doll with such an absolute sweet personality. When he told me that he was choosing her for a completely styled look.. I was elated.

Kinky Girly x Jasemine Denise Photography

I‘ve done a couple different photoshoots commemorating the amazing handmade designs of Ohio native Justina. Her company, Kinky Girly which was established back in 2013 quickly caught my attention through Etsy and before I knew it, half of the entire 2016 collection was in my closet. So what happens when you take two companies ran by two boss babes and put them in one desolate town with three models… Let’s find out.

Kinky Girly x Jasemine Denise Photography
Desolate in Detroit

shop-kinky-girly-jasemine-denise-photography-desolate-in-detroit-9

The ride to Detroit to meet up with Justina was one to remember. Four rad babes bunked up in the backseat singing along to music and fangirling over each other. It was the type of road trip I’d always dreamt of. I was still trying to wrap my brain around it. Just weeks before, I was shooting the idea of meeting up for a shoot with the owner of this rad company Kinky Girly and now here we were. Approaching Detroit, we didn’t have much of a plan. I knew of a place but I was nervous. After we met up with Justina and took a mini adventure around the city, we found ourselves at the Heidelberg Projects of Detroit.. or as I like to call it.. The land of the desolate. Meet the dangerous girls inside…

Meet Erin aka the “Lily”

Have you ever watched CryBaby? For whatever reason, ever since my first photoshoot with Erin.. I’ve always pictured her growing up to be Ramona Rickettes. She got spunk, she’s got guts and she’s got attitude! Clad in mesh, leather and pasties.. Erin wore the Lily chest harness, Lily thigh garter belt, and Leather O Ring Belt. 

erin-shop-kinky-girly-jasemine-denise-photographyerin-shop-kinky-girly-jasemine-denise-photography erin-and-ingrid-shop-kinky-girly-jasemine-denise-photography

Erin comes with a handy dandy sidekick too…

Saint Mortis aka Selene

You’ve seen Saint Mortis, aka the Rock N Roll Queen do everything on this website. She helped fight the apocalypse, she did her first couple boudoir, and she was actually the first one of all of us to model Shop Kinky Girly gear. Now she’s back and darker than ever. She’s wearing the Selene Chest Harness and Selene Body Cage Garter Belt. Both items are made of leather.

Kali aka the “Purple Goddess”

You can recognize Kali from all the darkest cosplays, from Cat Woman to Dark link. I guess you can see that she summons the darkness with her. That’s why she’s rocking the purple pentagram harness.  It’s even said that the jewel choker around her neck can help summon the darkness.

Jasemine-Denise aka Leona?!?!

Yeah, that’s right! Your favorite photographer boss babe may have tried to do the ultimate photo bomb and actually landed herself into the shoot! Hahaha, just kidding. I definitely asked! I’m rocking the Leona Harness, and Leona Garter Belt which I loved so much I had to save up to purchase shortly after the shoot. Believe it or not, every piece of Shop Kinky Girly gear is adjustable so it was able to fit even my tiny waist. (There’s a Leona collar too that is gorgeous, but I have an obsession with mine and wouldn’t take it off)

+ Bonus +

Detroit was so much fun. Justina and I have most definitely taken a liking to each other’s art. I mean just look at our matching hair and chokers. 😀 That being said, you’re going to see a lot more photoshoots featuring Shop Kinky Girly gear because it seems like the brand took off SO fast. I blinked and all my friends were rocking it and I LOVE THAT! So stay tuned, because there might be something buzzing around Christmas coming soon!

Michonne Cosplay – Jill Robi

Happy Halloween week, Kings and Queens! I’m so stoked to be here with you! You guys remember Jill right? She was the badass writer who I interviewed a while back about her book The Good Soldier? Well, she’s back with the most epic comeback a writer could probably make… She is…

Michonne From The Walking Dead

Cosplay by Jill Robi featuring Chelsea Alexis as Sasha. 

So Jill is a lot of things. She’s a writer, she’s a comedian (Seriously, she cracks me up), she’s an actress, and my personal favorite… She’s a fan girl. When she first started telling me about her love for The Walking Dead, it caught me be surprise. We’re both huge Buffy fans and that’s kind of where our friendship started but shortly after listening to her talk about her love for the ship Richonne, it became clear that this… This was next level.

Will Michonne and Sasha make it out alive?

The world may never know… I can promise you that Jill and her sister made it out unharmed. Not only that, but you can find her in all her amazing glory on her blog, her Twitter and even through clicking either of the links below and buying one of her highly coveted novels.

Until next time… here’s some adorable behind the scenes gifs of Jill.

Beautiful Dangerous >> Jasemine Denise Photography

Okay, okay. So Jasemine Denise Photography has been off the grid for a while. I’ve been dabbling in everything from learning about what it’s like to work with a hairstylist to whipping out the big guns and learning how to shoot studio work! As promised though, I have hopped in front of the camera, myself a few times!

Secret Engagement: Raymond and Gabbie

I love love. I really don’t think I tell you guys enough how much love makes me giggle inside. You can only imagine how excited I am that I get to be a part of things that involve love. So when my good friend Raymond came to me about surprising Gabbie, his now fiance with her ring, I got way excited. Like… Over 9,000 watts of “OMG YASSS!” You guys ready for the cutest first secret engagement I’ve shot of 2016?

Secret Engagement: Gabbie and Raymond

It was the morning of Anime Central, the very first day. Raymond had agreed to get Gabbie up early in the morning for her to prepare herself for a photoshoot. What made this cute is that Raymond is never the one to initiate a photoshoot. He’s always giggling and being silly because that’s who he is naturally. Today, he was all smiling and cooperating because he knew that this was the day that there was something more. 

On the flipside, someone was a little more on the silly side.

In seconds, Ray had disappeared to “give Gabbie a couple shots by herself.”

Gabbie and Raymond - Engagement Photoshoot-35

If you guys didn’t know already.. Gabbie is a master makeup artist. I did a Fan Girl Friday on her a while back. Her pinup looks are too DIE for. You can check the rest of her looks out on Facebook and Instagram.  So anyway, Raymond comes back out.. tells Gabbie to close her eyes and when she does, he slowly gets down on one knee. I’m telling you guys, this secret engagement gets so much more precious so quickly.

 

You know what else, guys? I had to spoil the ending but… She said yes!!

Gabbie and Raymond Paige- Secret Engagement

 

Isn’t that beautiful! Crossing my fingers for her to change her mind on me not being her photographer just because I’m also a bridesmaid in her wedding! I couldn’t be more proud of Raymond for tying the knot.

 

Want Your Own Secret Engagement?

Time to share this post on your significant other’s Facebook wall and nudge them violently as you give them the hint hint face! Like I said, I love love and I’ve been hanging on to some GORGEOUS photos that I’ll be releasing all summer to really get you in the mood to love love as well. If you’re reading this and you actually want to book your own secret engagement, slide on over to my website and place an inquiry. I want… no, I NEED to be your photographer for something so great!

Nina – Flower Child

Nina has been waiting for her time to shine. Diligently shooting behind the scenes with Jasemine Denise Photography for a little over two months now, she’s been bearing the cold, the wind and the rain. Finally.. her time has come. I still can’t believe it’s finally spring in Chicago. I honestly felt like this day was never going to come. Fun fact about Nina, she thrives in the sunlight. She’s got such a vivid and bright personality! She’s got the absolute personality of a flower child. It’s a beautiful thing!

Nina // Flower ChildNina Riggins - Jasemine Denise Photography - Spring 2016-40

They say that a truly free spirit cannot be tamed.

The essence of Nina is that she can go from a stone cold model face to a carefree black girl in a heartbeat. That is simply because that’s who she is. She’s got a beautiful smile and a creative spirit. The essence is deeply rooted within her. While she can be emotional and very serious, she can also be the kicked back girl you can catch an episode of Dragon Ball Z with.

Hidden depths are a gift.

It’s not long in any session before it simply blossoms out of Nina. It starts as a simple stare, which later transforms into a smile.. Eventually her inner essence consumes her and seemingly brightens everything else around her. Nina Riggins - Jasemine Denise Photography - Spring 2016-26Nina Riggins - Jasemine Denise Photography - Spring 2016-85

Saint Mortis x Kinky Girly

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve done a bit of touring, went to Cleveland, got two new tattoos and got to shoot some amazing things. Truth be told, I didn’t think I’d be writing this blog post right now. I thought I’d be writing it Friday when it’s the regular day of fan girling but I couldn’t wait. I just had to show you guys Kinky Girly. Wait. It’s not how it sounds. Kinky Girly makes these amazing harnesses and leg garters of an awesome price with even awesomer craftsmanship. (Can you believe awesomer isn’t a word?) 

So, I called up one of my favorite models Saint Mortis and said, “Hey. Let’s do something kinky girly!” Five minutes into shooting, I knew I picked the right one. You guys ready?

Let’s stop right here and set a disclaimer: Neither the model nor I were paid or told to endorse Shop Kinky Girly in anyway. We just saw it, I loved it and I said “Hey, we should shoot in this dope stuff and of course Saint said: OKAY!”

Saint Mortis - Kinky Girly-15

I first found Kinky Girly on Etsy, and I couldn’t believe their prices honestly. There are so many different harness companies out there who are literally charging triple what Kinky Girly is for half of the quality. You can get a pair of these exact leg garters directly through this link. Tell them Saint and Jasemine sent you just because it sounds really cool!
