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.

Even In Death // Florida Model Reiko

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? In the short time that I’ve been away, I’ve been a pirate, I’ve been Prince, and I’ve been finally granted access back to my personal Instagram profile. Yet, this post isn’t about me! It’s about one gorgeous Florida Model known as Reiko.

Even In Death // Florida Model Reiko

When the Queendom gets overtaken by darkness, even long after she is gone… The Queen will return for her Queendom. Blinded by the pain of her people, she sees change within her irises. Even in death, her love for her Queendom– the empire that she built — is still her main priority.

Mindlessly, she wanders with an open heart and fire in heart until she realizes that the city she once loved, the power she once had has fallen. Some say that she is crazy… That she is non-existent, a faint memory of the Queen that once was.

She does not let that deter her… She calls out to you like a siren… Dark and inviting. Together you will start a new empire in the darkness. One where no one shall hurt, and no one shall perish. She calls out to you, summons you with barely a breath.. whispers.. “Will you come along with me?” Even in death, the Queen’s love goes on.

Some say that those who have denied the Queen of her invitation have never been seen again…

Even in death, her love goes on.

What is Reiko Rocking?

Reiko is a Florida model whose style is as unique as her personality. Practically a patron at Rave And Rockers, she brings forth a different look to every photoshoot. In this session, she’s rocking a Shop Kinky Girly harness, collar, and leg garters. Her nails were done by Anastasia Totty and her makeup done by Gabbie Johnson. Follow Reiko on Instagram for more updates, more looks, and more shoots!

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

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.

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
