Shooting PHOENIX magazine’s Cover Story

It’s shameful I haven’t blogged about this yet because I’ve been squealing about this issue for so long but been so busy!  It’s 114+ in Phoenix.  Awesome.   It’s a dry heat.  Yah, so is an oven.

And so, PHOENIX magazine‘s current August issue is out, and you can find my images on pages: 8, 89, 91, 97, 98, 99 and 103!  I was able to work with fellow FORD Models (always fun to pick models from my own agency that represents me – haha) and my bests, Rachelle McCray and JM.

Five sessions total for the big cover story and had a blast, as always.   I am in love with all of the people over there at PHOENIX magazine and I honestly couldn’t feel more privileged to shoot for such a respectful publication!

Pick up the August issue if you’re melting like me and find out new ways to beat this scorching heat in the Valley.  Or, be like me and escape home to California for the summer. *wink*

Oh, and you’re probably wondering about the composition for some – when you shoot editorial you must always leave enough room for cutlines if your shots get cover or text for stories as well – hence the change in composition and good for those of you who wish to go into editorial photography to know.
