Welcome to MICHELLE HERRICK | the blog!

I am a fashion editorial and high school senior photographer located in sunny Arizona. I love everything about producing fashion shoots for magazine editorials or the fun & vibrant graduating senior or for clients' promotional/campaign material...this really is the best job ever. Oh, and I'm a mom to 3 awesome kids with an amazing husband and the coolest german short hair pointer dog!

I was beyond excited when I got the call from Glamrocks Jewelry wanting me to shoot their Spring/Summer 2014 jewelry lookbook. Kristen, the mind and hands behind Glamrocks, is a true artist and her pieces are unreal…truly amazing! Kristen hails from Chicago but wanted the pieces shot among the desert with lots of light (two things we have an abundance of); she wanted a sort of boho chic meets rocker vibe conveyed in the shoot and I think our model did such a KILLER job at doing just that!! Arizona desert lookbooks are what I do and I’m so grateful our paths crossed!

I’m just posting a quick sneak peak since she already released this image from the shoot…it’s one of my absolute favs!

This was the kind of shoot where it’s just FUN! Good vibes, great team of awesome ladies, being creative… :-)

Concept was driven by the idea of mixing thrifted fashion with great vintage finds…and maybe a modern piece here or there.

Styling was done by Alex [AVE Styles] and Sara [Chicks Who Give A Hoot]. Makeup by Azure. Model is the lovely Gwen [The Agency AZ].

PS… ^^ that’s not the backdrop I was referring to in my previous post. This is a more mauve in color, muslin backdrop.

Everything about this shoot just came together perfectly. I’m telling you…the stars were so perfectly aligned for this editorial. Incredibly blessed and inspired by the people I get to work with and call friends.

And for the extra geeky stuff… I used a 28″ apollo softbox as my main light which was probably with the AB400 and then another AB400 as a side kicker light (model’s right, camera left) with nothing but the reflector on…and I’m pretty sure I flagged the kicker light with some black foam board to prevent any spill onto the background (which btw, was shot on WHITE seamless, but looks gray the farther away the light is from the background… :-) )

This was a unique, fun shoot…and a unique, fun submission. I loved this look and instantly thought this series would be a great candidate for some alternative photoshop manipulation…that’s a nice way of saying I wanted to have a little fun in photoshop.

I absolutely LOVE what Stephanie did with the make up for these images and the animal print photoshop work was so cool to do, too (gotta love Youtube for some great how-to tutorials!).

I admit that BTS (behind the scene) videos are my favorite to see from anyone’s shoot and I kick myself at almost every shoot for not capturing just a few minutes of video. Here’s a quick BTS video from my recently published shoot in Zephyr Magazine.

After a nice little hiatus during the summer to do the family/mom thang, I am super excited to be back at it…shooting/producing some really fun and creative shoots.

This was my first time working with Shannon and it’s always so great to work with new people. We even laughed at the fact that this was our FIRST shoot together even though we have “known” each other for some time now through social media and the fact that the Phoenix fashion/editorial market is quite small and tight-knit that it’s funny how we were just NOW coming together on a project. This was also the 2nd time I had the pleasure of photographing Daynalyn…this girl is such a crack up and totally a legit-down-to-earth, awesome girl. And of course, me and Ms. Neiheisel go way back and always love every minute working with her!

Some other fav images from the shoot…
