Fashion Test Shooting!

Had another amazing test shoot over the weekend! Model is Maryn Miller, Hair/Makeup/Wardrobe by Maria Teresa Chavez. I've known these two ladies since we were kids :). We've been blessed with gorgeous weather lately, and got so lucky with this amazing light! I live for shoots like this :)

If you are interested in hiring Maria for hair, makeup, or styling services, email her at makeupbymaria123@gmail.com. She does an incredible job, you won't be sorry!

Also, I'm currently available for all types of shoots. I'm expecting a few last minute family photos for Christmas cards and gifts too, it's not too late! Email me: info@rachelzeephotography.com 

Off to edit some more photos, can't wait to share!

Barbie in Berkeley

Every once in awhile, a girl has to get the heck outta Dodge and get inspired somewhere new! So last week I took a roadtrip up to Berkeley (yes, still as wacky as ever) with the lovely Barbie. We had fun (possibly too much) exploring Telegraph and the surrounding areas. I couldn't believe how exhausted we were once we sat down to relax a bit, haha. And here are my favorite shots of the day!

More can be seen on Facebook at facebook.com/rachelzeephotography. Don't forget to become a fan! We also had a videographer on the scene, getting some behind-the-scenes footage which I'll be able to share with you all later.  Good times! :)

For The Love of a Child - Hello Gorgeous Fashion Show

Crazy cool hair, hot outfits, great music, delicious food and drinks.... AND all to benefit a great cause?! Hello Gorgeous Salon hosted a fashion show and party at the Westside Grill in Gilroy with proceeds going to Childhelp, an organization working to prevent and treat child abuse. More information can be found at www.childhelp.com

I had the pleasure of attending and photographing the event. In short, it looked something like this:

See all the photos on Facebook! (Don't forget to become a fan!)

Sunday Funday - Part 1

Ahhhh.... nothing like a relaxing day in a beautiful place, taking beautiful photos :). Took so many, I'm breaking it up into 3 parts. Each part has a completely different feel and mood. This is the most dramatic of the three.... Enjoy!

Catalog Shoot

While my specialty is shooting outdoors and utilizing beautiful natural light, I have expanded my repertoire into shooting with studio lighting as well. There are some looks that call for a studio set up, and really having so much control over the light is nice. These were taken for an eBay store (link to be posted!), modeled by the lovely Danika!

A Fallen Angel...

I was lucky enough to work with two talented ladies on this portfolio shoot. Shanel was our "Fallen Angel" with hair and makeup done by Amber "Lady Luxe".

And a little behind the scenes......

I am so thrilled with the way these came out, and I think they are too! Shoots like these really feed my hunger for creativity and expression. I use test shoots such as this as an outlet for ideas that I've stored in my mind. I'm constantly building a visual memory bank up inside my head every time I'm inspired! We're already talking about collaborating on another shoot... :)
