Behind the Scenes with Madison Iseman for Saturne Magazine

It takes a village to make any great project come together and luckily I have the best tribe around. Planning this shoot with actress Madison Iseman was so fun and I just knew it was going to be a killer day when it all came together.

I met Madison and her glam team at 10:30 am on Tuesday Sept 18th along with my wonderful stylist Shaina Feldman. Everyone got settled in for the two hours we had reserved and I was determined in getting 6 looks done in that time frame.

As usual, Shaina knocked it out of the park with her brilliant and unique looks which was so different to the space but somehow worked wonderfully. Madison and I were beyond excited to play around with the variety of vintage Versace, sequin shorts and faux furs.

The studio had so many awesome little sections to work with and I decided to start on the left side and work my way around to the windows ( praying the sunlight would shift by the time I got there because Holy Bright Light Batman!)

The first section was new to the studio and I was excited to break it in. We got Madison dolled up in this fabulous dress that looked like it was made for her! Just look at this angel!

Look 1: Angel Wing

Baby Curls and Gray Skies

Its rare that I get a photo of my wild, rambunctious and ever curious 2 year old, Atticus looking at the camera. From the moment he wakes up, to the second he falls asleep he is a tornado of toys, snacks and giggles. I have given up on trying to get that perfect photo of him and as a result I have learned to embrace and love the authenticity of lifestyle photography.  I love that Ill have these images of my son, to remember him as he is, at this age, forever. I have grown so much as an artist, as I document his development and our day to day life.

Last week, California had some unexpected and very welcome cooler weather resulting in some amazing cloud patterns. Its rare that we get these amazing clouds so I had to take Atticus out to explore in our favorite little field behind our house. I put him in a vintage Sears Winnie the Pooh edition blazer that I found at a thrift store for $3.99 and his trusted and worn out Vans and we hit the dirt running.
