Tru Salon Winter 2014 Editorial Shoot [Coralville, IA Editorial Photography]

These sessions I get to do with Tru Salon are so much fun, and this one with Chika modeling are some of my favorites. We got a little creative with the fan action and love how it turned out! Hair by Holly, makeup by Kayla (and Kayla did a fabulous job adding the "wind"). Love!!

This post features a personal project that was a collaboration alongside Holly Richter from Tru Salon in Coralville (one super talented lady!!). We have been getting together several times this year to do some editorial shoots for Tru, and have been having so much fun and feeling so inspired that we decided to work together to keep our passion for what we do going strong and creative juices flowing.

I love what I do, photographing families, children, etc but there's something very freeing about shooting just for myself. This project has opened up my creativity and reignited my passion for photography in ways I didn't expect. I really love these little projects, and I hope you do too! Thanks to my assistant Ashley for modeling, she did awesome!








Tru Salon Fall 2014 Editorial Shoot [Coralville, IA Editorial Photography]

This is the third editorial shoot that I've done with the girls at Tru Salon in Coralville, and it seems like I leave the session feeling more inspired than before. Holly did the hair for their Fall 2014 shoot, using L'Oreal Hair Chalk, and I thought it looked amazing!

I am so thankful to have met the girls from Tru, as they are incredible artists and it is a privilege to be able to photograph their work. I love doing sessions like this which stretch my creativity and allow me to branch out with my photography, so THANK YOU to Holly for choosing me to be a part of this!

I know this doesn't show off the beautiful hair color that Holly mixed for the shoot, but I was just playing around and this is one of my personal favorites, in b&w.

Tru Salon Spring 2014 Editorial Shoot [Coralville, IA Editorial Photography]

Tru Salon is one of my favorite places in the area, and I'm always amazed by the gorgeous hair and makeup that the stylists there produce. Not only are they all super talented, but incredibly nice as well and I always look forward to spending time at the salon.

Holly and Kayla have been doing editorial looks for every season for a few years now, and when they asked me to photograph this year's series I was thrilled. The session was definitely something new for me, but I had so much fun stepping outside of my comfort zone. I felt so incredibly inspired by this session, and can't wait to do it again soon!

Holly and Kayla - Thank you so much for choosing me to help you with your editorial shoots, I am so grateful to be a part of it. You guys are the best. Also huge thanks to Savanna for modeling, you are gorgeous girl!!
