Two Classic Beauties

It is wonderful when you just know things are right. Like working with a person, subject or model that just flows with you so easily. Alisha is that. This young lady never ceases to amaze and surprise me, always going a step or two further than I expected and dared ask. On September 5th, 2015, with a bright and ready smile, she was ready to go – even though I called her on very short notice, asking to photograph her.

There is a retro service station, right around the way from my home. Almost ten years ago, it was a closed and broken down gas and service station, though I had never seen it open and functioning. A few years back, someone purchased it and perform a beautiful job of creating a classic gas station, down to the smallest detail. However, rather than selling gasoline and doing repairs, it is (was, as I believe the new business failed) a direct mailer for the auto industry. As for me, I immediately fell in love with the look and started using it as a backdrop for themed photos.

Pitching the idea to Alisha over the phone, she tuned right in and gathered the needed clothing and accessories to create the look I wanted. She created two styles, both fitting the theme yet very different in look; one the cute and sexy girlfriend, and the other the wise and confident tough gal. I wish I had a beach cruiser bicycle for The Girlfriend, and a leather jacket and motorcycle for The Tough Gal.

Of course, I will be using that location again and again, creating wonderful themed images. And it goes without saying that I won’t hesitate to call on my Muse and creative spark plug, Alisha!

My Muse – Alisha

On August 13th, I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful young lady who promised to add spark and excitement to my photos. And she did just that! Alisha is not only pretty, sexy and talented, she is creative and fun!

Of course, I was surprised and delighted with the results of our very first shoot together, and was eager to continue our working relationship and create more wonderful images! It was if we had been working together for quite some time.

We had planned three outfits and three locations, but the rains came and clipped off the last location, though we still pulled in the last article of clothing; a bright, busy and colorful dress that mirrored her electric personality!

I have found my new “go to” girl for stretching my creative mind to new and exciting heights! More great images to come!
