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!

No, you’re not seeing double. My recent editorial, Desert Wanderers, was picked up by TWO magazines and now the 2nd one has was just released. You can see the images in Volume XI of Jute Magazine (view full issue online HERE).

As always, credit goes to the team for trekking out to the middle of nowhere with me and trusting me when I say…”we’re gonna get some good stuff here”! :-)

This shoot with Stephanie, Jihan, and Brianna was an absolute BLAST! Us girls set out on a road trip to the middle of nowhere called Gila Bend, AZ…in fact if you’ve driven to San Diego from the Phx area then chances are you’ve stopped in Gila Bend to pee. That’s about how well known this sweet little town is.

I love it when clients call or email me up looking to either create a headshot portfolio or simply add some new shots to freshen up their book. Here are some images from a few of those recent portrait sessions.

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… :-) )
