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.

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!

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

The Wayward Winds of A flower child always blow away..

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!”

Want Your Own Pair of Kinky Girly Garters?

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!

Until next time which will be sooner than later, don’t forget to follow:

Taking Back Thursday // Oxi Lox – Florida Tattoo Artist

Happy Taking Back Thursday! When I first met Oxi, I was mesmerized. Rainbow hair, colorful personality.. I mean she is just a total goddess! It gets better! Oxi is also a magnificent tattoo artist specializing in water color art.  Last time she came to the tattoo convention, I not only get a tattoo from her but I also got to photograph her beautiful self too! Are you ready for Oxi Lox, the cyber rainbow goddess?

As I said before, Oxi is such a colorful person with an amazingly kind spirit. When we planned this shoot, we only had one thought in mind.. Color. She had to be colorful. Honestly, when she walked in with her cyber glasses, I fell a little more in love.

It’s been quite a bit since our first shoot together! In fact, we shot again the last time Oxi was in town! She had on the cutest panda outfit and I can’t wait to show you guys that too! In the meantime, in the spirit of taking back Thursday, I’m gonna take you back to the day I got my first tattoo from Oxi. As you can see by the photos below, I was beyond excited.
