Roma | Steampunk PhotoShoot |Chicago IL

September 26, 2014 Jasemine Denise Photography 3 min read 1 Comment

Photography isn’t just about standing in front of a camera. Photography is living your inner most secret fantasy. It’s taking your deepest darkest imagination and bringing it to life. The moment when you grow out of saying “cheese” is the moment you can be anyone. In this steampunk photoshoot, we transformed Roma from a naturally grinning sweetheart to a a fierce, post-pocalyptic goddess.

Who is Roma?

Roma is a teacher by day. I know, I know. I couldn’t believe it either! Yet, she’s also a model who’s done a multitude of different sessions and projects. She’s even been on the runways a few times! What surprised me most about Roma is her story. She’s not originally from America but she came to the country at a young age and she was alone. Through her own hard work and ambition she’s managed to create a name for herself and a career through both modeling and many jobs in which she’s taken care of people both young and old. Aside from her stunning humanitarianism,  her kindheartedness radiates through her while shooting. Myself, her, the makeup artist and cameraman experienced the most mosquito infested location yet and she hardly flinched. (We were all occasionally stopping to slap the pesky insects away from us. I won’t lie, there was a lot of whining and moaning though. )


During our first meeting, Roma fell in love with a corset that I was wearing and told me how she’d always loved the steampunk look. She said she’d always wanted to do something edgy that made her look much different. I remember how I had laughed and asked her why she hadn’t done it. She shrugged, smiled, and it was over. We both knew immediately that it was the start of something great. It was like an instant connection. We were going to do something together that neither of us had done before.

The Shoot

The shoot started off as any normally would as Roma frolicked around the location in her bare feet. Serenity surrounded her and it was as if she was the only one there for miles. It was as though she was dancing across nature like some sort of siren.

Suddenly, the entire environment changed… It was as if evil was afoot. No more was the worry of pesky mosquitoes or maybe some dirt on her lovely dress, but the entire aura had changed. As the skies darkened and the air grew a musky scent of the ones who had fallen before her, Roma only spared us a slight smirk as she began to slink about her own little space.

I know what you’re thinking… Did she fight? Did evil ever take place?! There’s only one to find out! Subscribe to the blog and watch out for Roma’s return.



Before you go, I wanted to show you a little of the behind the scenes of Roma’s shoot! Firstly, her outfits for the session were courtesy of Q. Phia. Q’s website is filled with lovely gems that you can “Ooolala” over. Aside from that, her makeup was done by MUAYV and I got to sit on it being done!

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.
