Germantown, MD- Pretty in Paint with Kat

I met Kat a couple of years ago at a shootout in Charleston, SC. We actually both lived in Beaufort and despite both of our efforts we never managed to be able to shoot together. Luckily for me her father lives near by and she was swinging in town for a visit. Kat can be easily identified as an alternative model. However we wanted to start with something soft and sweet at our local park and then come back to my place and get a little messy.

For the first shoot we simply took to the foot path of the park at Ridge Road in Germantown. For the second shoot we used a Love Is Art kit to get messy have some fun in my tiny living room . Generally the company sell these kits as to use for lovers. They have become my go to wedding gift. However no lovers were involved in the making of these photos, just the love and appreciation of the female figure and fun.

Throwing Paint in Colorado Springs, CO

Over this past weekend I flew in to Denver and headed to Colorado Springs with a girlfriend I had met when we lived in Lemoore, California.  We caught up on how our lives have changed and what directions we are heading. I got to meet her fiance and his son and see how much her kids have grown. Blending a family is tricky. Much like a masterpiece it takes time, patience, understanding of the the craft, and technique. With blended families everyone has their own color, their own personality but its how they come together to create a whole image that is truly beautiful. No one gets to see how messy things are during the process, they only see the framed image on the wall. 

This shoot was mostly unplanned and a huge mess that resulted in wild smiles and laughs. How often do kids get to throw paint... and on their parents or their siblings? I want to do more shoots like this for sure! And more shoots with this family!
