Adventure Headshots & Modeling Set

I have some new photos to share with you! Well, these are actually pretty dated now, but this is still one of my absolute favorite photo sets- shot in my back yard. They were intended to be headshots with some fun, different aesthetics thrown in for funsies. But they evolved into even more of a creative adventure than I could have imagined. Check out these “adventure” headshots and fashion modeling photos by Steven Gibbs.

A Little Bit Western

These western-style images are some of my absolute favorites because I feel they really sum up who I am as a person. The cowboy-esque look adds a bit of adventure into the mix. Yet, they are still mildly glam. If anyone can mix up the adventure with the glam, I sure hope it’s me!

This photo above is the main image I like to use when promoting Weird World Adventures because it adds that adventure touch to a classic headshot. I feel that you look at this photo and aren’t surprised that the girl in it, me, has gone on archaeological digs and contributed to the scientific community. And she’s ready for adventure, too.

Model Behavior

Did anyone on here watch Just Shoot Me? If not, you should definitely check it out. That’s one of my favorite shows. If you did watch it, then you’ll know what I mean when I mention “BLUSH Magazine’. I like to think of this photo below as my BLUSH Magazine cover shot!

90s supermodel, anyone? I am honestly just blown away by the amazing job that Steven Gibbs did on lighting this look. The glow really is what sells it all. I’ve tried again and again to wear this dress for special events, but this photo shoot was the real perfect moment this dress was meant for. Thank you, Free People, for this gorgeous, vintage piece.

And More

Of course, what headshot-esque session can be done without the office-inspired, business look? We decided to go a little more high fashion with this look by utilizing this H&M Runway Collection top. I have my friend Holley Wolfe to thank for such a gorgeous piece, along with the complimentary boots. It all came together nicely, adding a fashion edge to a regular office look.
