Stepping out of my comfort zone is always REALLY hard for me. Shooting something in a style that I'm not used to or in a new place is challenging, exciting, and it keeps creativity flowing. I've never been a big fan of Halloween in general and especially not the really gore filled photography that goes along with it and when I was asked to shoot a Halloween session, I was hesitant to go.
But I pushed past the doubts I had and was determined to make it the best that I could and boy did it ever change my mind! It wasn't full of people drinking wine glasses of fake blood with eyeball ice cubes, there weren't terrible orange and black lights, it was not at all what I had dreaded and was more amazing than I could have hoped for.
The makeup was awesome and Alexis was SO into it, getting into crazy poses and with wide eyes, she was amazing to work with. There's nothing better than a client that is all in and up for whatever crazy thing I ask. I'm ready for the next one already!
