Fashion Mini Sessions Photography

Mini Session Monday // Bianca

Happy Mini Session Monday!

The ever stunning Bianca is slightly new to modeling scene but this isn’t her first photoshoot with me by far! Her boudoir with her boyfriend Ernest was actually featured in Huffington Post’s 29 Couples Boudoir Photos that are Almost too Hot To Handle last year. You know the one thing that is sexier than a couple in love? A person who is in love with themselves. Let that confidence shine through!

Mini Session Monday // Bianca

Bianca’s what I like to call a chameleon. She’s a woman who can pull off almost any look, any hairstyle, and any color. There’s not a lot of women out there who are capable of doing that and that’s what makes her such an excellent model. That, and her smile.

One of the things I love most about Bianca is that she’s daring and very bold. If you’ve ever met her, you know she has no qualms telling the truth and being viciously open about who she is. It’s an absolute breath of fresh air as well as a motivation. My favorite thing is seeing her cross that over into her fashion territory. She’s not afraid to pick colors that you wouldn’t typically piece together and show us how to wear them.

What Bianca’s Wearing:
Jacket: Fashion Nova
Top: Fashion Nova
Skirt: Unknown
Shoes: Fashion Nova
Harness : Aurora from SKG Designs

Model Monday: Keeley Shoup // Gryffindor House

I‘m sure you remember me asking you a while back which Harry Potter House are you? Slowly but surely my models have been asking themselves the same questions. For the longest we had no one for the Gryffindor House, but then along came one of our newest models, Keeley and that all changed! Watch her channel her inner Hermione Granger in this debut set of hers, the Gryffindor House.

Gryffindor

 

Okay, don’t fight me…
I fell off of Harry Potter after the third or fourth book. I won’t lie, Chamber Of Secrets was the first full length book I’d ever read. It had me hooked. I was obsessed with Hermione. She was smart, she was ambitious, and she was the leader of the pack among two boys who had no clue what they were doing. Goals. 

When Keeley came to me and said she wanted to do a Hermione cosplay, I felt the young girl in me squeal extremely loud. A lot of the cosplays that I’ve gotten to shoot (Punk Storm, Jack Skellington, Sailor Moon..) have been things that connected back to my younger days and it’s part of the reason I love doing cosplay themed photoshoots so much. Enough about me though…

Why The Gryffindor House?

Gryffindor is daring, full of nerve and chivalrous. 

Are you a Gryffindor?

The wonderful and amazing Keeley Shoup has a special edition of this, in the common rooms coming to her Patreon account! Pledge and show your support for a fellow Hogwarts House! Keeley is officially a Jasemine Denise Photography model so you’ll be seeing quite a bit more of her in the coming year! Have an idea of what you want to see Keeley cosplay? Slide over to her Instagram where she casts polls, showcases closet cosplays and much more!

Oh, Wait! Don’t Forget!

Mini Session Monday – Florida Model Reiko

You’ve seen Florida model Reiko here on the blog before. Just recently, she modeled some of Shop Kinky Girly’s designs in a dark photoshoot that blew my mind. You can check that out here, and if you’ve seen it already… Get ready to see Reiko again.. but in a whole new light wearing Manaka Handmade originals.  It’s time for a Mini Session Monday featuring the lovely Florida Model Reiko.

Mini Session Monday:
Manaka Handmade // Florida Model Reiko

Prior to meeting Reiko, a Florida model I’ve known for over 10 years… I didn’t know too many people who had a style like hers. Sometimes it’s dark, sometimes it’s pinup, and sometimes it’s a surprise just waiting to unfold.

I asked Reiko what inspired her as a model. At the time, we were discussing her direction of how to branch out from other models in her area. She mentioned Manaka, and how much the handmade designer inspired her. She revealed that she was holding in her hands a few of the gorgeous pieces and that she wanted to do a photoshoot rocking them. How could I say no?

Did you enjoy this mini session with Reiko?

I don’t get to Florida much, but Reiko is model available for booking and willing to travel. You can follow her Instagram to see more of her shoots, check out her Facebook page to get future updates or subscribe to JDcom for more shoots released featuring the gorgeous Florida model.

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..

Adventures With Becky // Wanderlust Wednesday

In case it wasn’t apparent to you guys yet, I love exploring. When I’m not on the road photographing weddings, kids, and the lot.. I’m falling in love with the sight of someone else telling me what they’ve fallen in love with around them. That being said, meet the lovely Becky. I met Becky at my last shoot with Erin. That shoot had a part one and a part two and Becky was in both! Now, it’s time that she flew solo for an adventure!

Becky took us to a beautiful sunset at the end of her session that I couldn’t help but capture her in. As she admired it, I was impressed by such a beautiful sight. She has filled my Wanderlust heart! Continue Reading
