Recently I shot the Post Apunkalyptic Style feature for the Fall 2016 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine and it was a fun feature to put together! One of my favorite models, Kayte Kz came in from New York City for it. I have been working with Kayte for years and it’s always a pleasure to build a working relationship with someone and work with them on many projects over time. You already know how each other work and if you’re a great fit, it can make the shoot feel effortless.
For the Summer 2016 installment of Auxiliary Magazine’s Must feature we chose frequent Auxiliary makeup artist Mallory Jay to model. It’s always fun getting those who are normally behind the scenes in the spotlight. Mallory nailed it and did the makeup and wig styling for this feature. We featured Danani’s Pewter Bohemian Headpiece, a beautiful vintage inspired headpiece. Auxiliary Fashion Editor Shannon Kramp styled and we shot it in Buffalo’s Ellicott Creek Park by all the beautiful willow trees there.
Brothers Riley and Tanner spend a lot of time together so it made perfect sense that they needed some sibling portraits! Plus mom wanted some photos of her boys for the annual holiday card. We shot these in Buffalo’s iconic Delaware Park and moved between a few spots in the park to get a good range of photos. The boys were very excited so there was a bit of encouraging and wrangling to get them to stay put for more than a second. Yet after a handful of photos in the beginning and some one on one attention they got the hang of it and we got some fun and wonderful shots!
This summer I shot the athletic wear fashion editorial Suspend for Auxiliary Magazine’s Summer 2016 Issue. We had been wanting to do an athletic wear editorial for a while and when it occurred to our fashion editor Shannon Kramp that one of the model’s we’ve featured many times in Auxiliary, Samm Haney, was an aerial dancer, it all fell into place. We contacted Buffalo Aerial Dance and through them had a location and two more models, Anastasia Maria and founder Erica Cope.
