SKG Designs Sunday // Punk Princess

I shoot so much SKG Designs, it’s safe to say the secret’s out. If you don’t follow Shop Kinky Girly on Instagram or Twitter, then you may not know that we’re business soulmates. What does that mean? It means that if you own some SKG Designs, you can get a photoshoot in it any time.. for free. A free mini session, as long as I’m in your city when the moment happens. That also means that I have a lot of SKG Designs lookbook photos that you just need to see. So, every other Sunday.. I’m gonna show you some awesome ways to style the gear created by my models and other customers of SKG!

SKG Designs Sunday // Punk Princess

This look was first published on SKG Designs, and I felt it needed another share. If you’re into Ru Paul’s Drag Race, prepare yourselves… There’s an easter egg in this. You may remember Vickie but she’s been modeling with Jasemine Denise Photography over a year now. We even shot her wedding boudoir last October. It’s safe to say she’s definitely my style crush and it carries straight over to SKG!

Let’s talk about the back of that jacket shall we?

I’m a sucker for punk looking things but I’m an even bigger sucker for things that make a statement.

Vickie, a gal after my own heart, DIY’ed this jacket together.

Look at the fuzzy little details!

What’s just as awesome is that she paired some amazing SKG Designs gear with this look!

Poison Ivy Cosplay // Laura Joy

Yes, that’s right. A Poison Ivy cosplay. You could say Jasemine Denise Photography has a thing for the Gotham Universe.. and you’d be right. It’s not even just Gotham though. You’ve seen your favorite photographer as Storm, you’ve seen Rose Romanova as Black Canary and now… Laura Joy as not just Poison Ivy… Nah, this is a BOMBSHELL Poison Ivy cosplay.

At this time, Laura was fairly new to the Jasemine Denise Photography model roster.  She was nervous, but she was adventurous coming in the SKGxJDP boudoir session at the very last second, and slaying everyone in her presence’s life. Truly living up to her cosplay as Poison Ivy. Her makeup was an intricate affair created by Gabbie, our lead makeup artist who worked diligently with Laura to create something that was poisonous but very avante garde…

Photographer’s Secret: I was terrified stepping into this session. As a photographer, it’s almost frowned upon for you to admit that. The industry tells you to be confident, kick ass, and don’t show any weakness. Welp. I was scared because I wanted Laura to feel confident and gorgeous because.. Well she is. She took my expectations, shattered them, and created her own mold to break. Five seconds into the session, you couldn’t have every told me that she had just started modeling. No… This was pure talent.

Bombshell: bomb·shell ˈbämˌSHel/ 1.) One who is amazing, stunning or devastating.

Yes, that sounds about right. Amazingly, devastatingly, stunning!

Laura, wearing an overbust and a Tempest Harness from SKG Designs definitely make this session less about the cosplay and more about the concept. 

A closeup look at Laura:

Gabbie really took her time with the detail on this. The leaves are literally composed of glitter. This year, I’ll be sharing a lot more photoshoots featuring her makeup, so make sure you follow her on Instagram. Laura’s also modeling the Tempest Harness in red from SKG Designs over her overbust corset.

To see more of Laura’s photoshoots, follow her on Instagram! She’ll be back sooner than you think.

Kali Neko // Christmas Pinup

Merry Christmas! Let me start of by saying that I’ve been dying to do more pinup style shoots. Looking at models like Ophelia Overdose really motivate me to wanna bring my girls kicking and screaming into more complex shoots. Plot Twist: They won’t be kicking and screaming. They’ll be giggling and screaming “Yasss!” at the top of their lungs. Trust me. Anyway, trying to get more into the holiday spirit, Kali and I did a Christmas pinup shoot. I’m considering this practice because coming into the new year, you’re going to see a lot more of this. You ready?

Kali Neko // Christmas Pinup Session

Kali Neko Christmas Pinup Session Jasemine Denise Photography

This Christmas pinup session is special. Most people know Kali for her cosplays. Truth be told, when I met Kali, that’s probably the only thing I knew about her. I didn’t know she did pinup modeling for cosplay companies like My Geek Goddess and Pixel Vixens. I didn’t know she had the capability of being a brand ambassador beyond your wildest dreams. What I really didn’t know is that Kali was born a human with nothing but kitten tendencies. Even as we shot this very session, she was fiddling with the makeshift candy cane we built, using her french tip nails to peel at the ribbon stapled to the tube. Watching it from afar, it was cute.

How to Turn A Kitten into a Candy Cane:

Christmas pinup shoots, or shoots that have a theme aren’t easy. There’s a lot of plotting. This look started with the release of the Elysia Harness from SKG Designs. It’s the first design SKG has released that has involved leg wraps, coming in quite a few colors. From there, Kali.. being a kitten brought together the ears and tail and suddenly.. The look was born.

V – Bridal Boudoir // Jasemine Denise Photography

One of my models and good friends, V got married recently. The ceremony was small, intimate and beautiful. Before the event, V, a few amazing Queens and myself all got together to celebrate with a sleepover. The next morning, as she was getting ready, V and I shot a bridal boudoir shoot.

V // Bridal Boudoir
Makeup by: Gabbie Johnson

V and I started shooting together around the time she met Ari, her now husband. She told me in the few moments between our shoot that she just knew that was the man she was going to marry. You’ve seen Ari and V here before. They did that super cute boudoir shoot together and everyone simply fell in love with them. Now they’re married forever and I still haven’t stopped squealing.

Picture this.
It’s the morning of V’s wedding. Three girls are buzzing with excitement around her, while I’m chasing them in with the camera. We’re in the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Chicago and truth be told, V is a bit nervous. She’s not nervous about getting married. She knew that was happening. She’s nervous because she wants this to go perfect. I’m a little nervous. I chew on my lip as I step forward, camera clenched in my fingers as I say.. “Hey, Vee. You wanna take your bridal boudoir photos?”

She looks at me then and my heart stops a little. To my surprise, she smiles and says, “Yassss!” before waving her hands back and forth. Gabbie had just done her makeup, her veil is hanging loosely off of her gorgeous fresh buzz and she’s positively glowing.

I’m glad she said yes. I want to document every moment of this.

V is wearing lingerie from What Katie Didand had nothing but kind words to say about how well her lingerie fit her.

Her Bridal Garter was custom made for her by Shop Kinky Girly, and yes, SKG does accept custom orders. Use Vickie’s code ‘Vickie’ for 10% off.

Stay Tuned to see The wedding Itself!

Are you getting married soon or really want to have a bridal boudoir?

So many of my friends are getting married soon and I’m so excited for each and every wedding. That being said, I am opening the floor for booking for both weddings and bridal boudoirs for 2018! So if you’ve been waiting to inch your way in to snagging me as your photographer, go ahead and fill out an inquiry! I do travel.

Heaven In Hiding // Chicago Model Brooce

Have you met Brooce yet?
If you haven’t, let me give you the lowdown. She’s down to earth. She’s got an infectious laugh. She’s one of Jasemine Denise Photography’s 2018 models, and creating couture fantasy looks is how poison. Trapped in a our world, Chicago model Brooce can be better described as a fairy– a majestic creature who has not yet taken full form. Don’t worry. You’ll get to watch her evolution live on JDcom as she unleashes all her wildest creative inhibitions.

Heaven In Hiding // Chicago Model
Brooce

They always say Heaven is a place on earth with you…

Angels hear it everyday. What they never tell you is that once you step out of heaven’s gates to find your place on earth… You can’t turn back.

They never tell you that if you lose your heaven… That there’s no getting it back. Heaven is a place on earth but on earth there are also other things. There are demons. There is destruction. Once you step down from grace, you are a mortal.. You are someone else’s heaven. You are hiding in the beauty of something you once chased.

It’s not all bad.

Taking the plunge means that you become someone else’s heaven. You are someone else’s light. You bring life to them that they weren’t exactly looking for but are glad they found. Yet, what happens when you become the darkness? What happens when the angel turns her back on paradise and becomes Heaven in Hiding.

Where will you go when you go into hiding?

What do you think? Did you love Brooce’s Look?

She’s wearing the velvet Pentegram Harness in pink from SKG Designs. You can use her discount code “Br00c3” for discounts! Also, you should follow her on Instagram to see the many looks she puts together. Talk about creative. You’ll see her again soon. <3

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

It’s October! Can you believe it’s still in the sixties here? I’m trying to whip out all my Halloween fashion looks, including this one in my new fur bomber jacket gifted to me by Keeley and Megan, but… Well goodness, it’s still freaking toasty outside! It didn’t stop me though. I had to serve this look.

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

Everyday is Halloween

I’ve only had a handful of Halloween costumes my whole life. I think that contributes a lot to the style I have. I was Tickle Me Elmo in Kindergarten, complete with a vibrating one piece suit that didn’t run out of batteries. I think I was Esmerelda one year too. By the time I hit my senior year, my entire aesthetic was Halloween fashion. People would walk past me and say “It aint Halloween yet, girl!” and I’d scoff and say “Everyday is Halloween!”

Speaking of Halloween, let’s talk about this headpiece.

Kalika, a model you’ve seen on my Instagram a thousand times, and will see again in just a few weeks is a woman of many talents. She’s a model, she’s a spooky movie enthusiast, and she’s just an all around creative gal.

She made this crown.

Look at the diamond eyes. LOOK AT THE EYES!!! I couldn’t have formed something this creative if my life depended on it, but let’s be honest… I’d probably hot glue my hand to my face by accident if I tried. In case you didn’t know, it takes me forever to craft things.

Underneath that is a ton of my favorite SKG Gear.

I wear my Jasemine harnesses everywhere. Yes, I have two of them, and yes. They are named after me. That’s not bragging. It’s literally the biggest honor ever bestowed upon me because SKG’s leather line… Ugh. HEART EYE. Remember that you can get a discount on your SKG orders anytime by using my code JasemineDenise.

The one I’m rocking on my chest in this outfit, is a custom colored one. Half red leather, half black… because yes. SKG makes red leather options now.

I’m obviously a huge Shop Kinky Girly supporter. I love the way I can style almost every single thing I own with anything. It always seems like there’s an accessory for every outfit. For instance, the Lina collar… Went perfectly with this outfit. All the O rings!!

No outfit would be complete without my boss socks. I had been looking for them for ages and Ray finally found the missing one. Though they don’t exactly match the outfit, they still fit into the fur coat badass woman aesthetic so I threw them in.

Have you been waiting for October to show off your Halloween fashion?

I want to see! Comment this blog post with your favorite Halloween fashion look, your outfit of the days, or pretty much just anything that screams spooky fashion. I love checking out other outfits!

ClaustroClothic #32: Back To School Alternative Fashion

Looking back, I started the fashion portion of this blog back in what would’ve been considered my freshman year of college. I wanted so desperately document how my alternative fashion would be affected by going to college and starting a business. I didn’t think that three years later, I’d be photographing women slaying so many fashion looks, working with designers, etc. Today, I celebrate by doing yet another back to school look.

Flashback to one of my older ClaustroClothic looks. 

ClaustroClothic #32: Back To School // Alternative Fashion

Back in September of 2014, I let you know that my back to school looks have never been modest. Stepping out, I always wanted to let my classmates know that I was eclectic and that it’s probably in their best mind to get used to having that 90s goth girl aesthetic in their classroom. It’s also worth noting that my freshman year of high school was spent at an all girl’s catholic school, so I was no stranger to plaid skirts.

Now, present-day, I’ve ditched the plaid skirt and went for a more grown up look.  The plaid is still in there but it’s topped off with a Deviant Harness from SKG Designs and a Fiona Leather collar all underneath my new favorite red leather jacket from Forever 21. Honestly, it’s very seldom I’m trying to do something major with alternative fashion and can’t find some SKG to throw in there.

What Inspired this outfit?

I’ve actually been trying to find a way style that Fiona red leather ever since I saw it on my girl V during a shoot!

V’s look 

Mine

I’m also rocking the Dita bottoms because I was definitely not trying to hunt down a pair of stockings. It’s still kinda warm here in Chicago so I felt like I had the chance to show a little leg.

You can’t see them, but I topped the entire look off with an updated pair of boots from my last Back to School look. The ones I have now leave room for thigh high socks which keep my feet warm!

What advice can I give to anyone trying to achieve this look?

Don’t be afraid to be bold! I hear so many women say “I wish I could dress like that but–” There is no but. There’s a time and a place for every single look you can serve. Find an environment to rock your edginess. We only have one life and I don’t wanna spend it looking at clothes on a rack saying “I wish I had the confidence for this.” I’ve sewn clothes down, changed things around, bought things and worked out until I had the body I wanted to wear them… Fashion is a passion. It’s a state of mind. It’s something that calls to you and you deserve to wear it the way you know how! Like I said, there’s a time and a place. Though I wouldn’t have worn this my freshman year of college, I’ll definitely rock this outfit to a party now!

Till next time, what are you wearing?

Lookbook: SKG Designs

V is actually rocking a Dollskill dress underneath a fully adjustable Tempest Harness from SKG Designs. Around her neck is a Leona collar  thus completing a sort of pastel goth look that almost contrasts the colorful babydoll dress she’s rocking. Sometimes it’s not just about the dress but the accessories framing the overall aesthetic.

To top it all off, V brought a little extra edge to the look by putting her glasses on. She’s got some unique frames and it really brought a different vibe to the look.

Punk Storm Cosplay // Collaboration

Punk Storm has been a dream of mine since I could first remember. I’m talking before I could even imagine holding a camera would get me as far as it has. When the Queen behind Weave N Luxury, the Queen behind SKG Designs and I all started talking about a collaboration where I’d be in front of the camera, I jumped at the chance to live one of my wildest dreams out.

Punk Storm Cosplay

SKG Designs x Weave N Luxury x Jasemine Denise Photography

The Hair // + Weave N Luxury

The wig to this cosplay was created from 100% human hair by Weave N Luxury. When I said Storm, she just immediately knew where I was going with it. It was crazy. She dyed it so that it had the look specifically and then when I got on set, she styled and cut it right there while it was on my head. Magic!

The Punk Look // + SKG Designs

You can’t be punk storm without having some punk in your outfit.
I contemplated for weeks what would make this look complete. Of course it was almost a no brainer after time. My handmade EST 19xx spiked bra. I’ve been asked for years if I made the bra myself, the answer is yes! Ontop of that is the Selene Harness that I rocked right alongside the Selene waist belt, both leather and handmade from SKG.

The collar is a white leather with a large O ring also created by SKG designs. While it may not be available in white anymore, there is definitely an entire leather collection that can be purchased in either red or black. 

Are you digging the Punk Storm Cosplay?

Punk storm has always been a dream of mine! What’s your next cosplay? What’s your dream cosplay? Seriously, tell me in the comments! I’d love to know. Also, remember that you can get a discount over at SKG Designs any time by using the code ‘JasemineDenise’ and if you buy something… You should tag me in a photo of you rocking it on Instagram, because I love love love seeing people rock SKG!

Until next time, don’t forget to subscribe to the blog so you can see more photoshoots of me done by my second shooter Ray, as well as photoshoots of all my models and clients!

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!
