I had the absolute pleasure of photographing one of my favourite couples at the Dolly Shots Studio; the beautiful burlesque babe Bianca Boom Boom and the fabulous drag artist Black Swan! Their love is so palpable, it was really a pleasure to photograph them, and I’m so happy to share the first of two photosets today!
Dolly Shots Photography was a seed I planted 5 years ago when I first rented a studio, brought in a bunch of friends and took their portraits. Taking photos was something I started to do as a teenager to document my love of fashion and beauty. When I first began applying the techniques I had learned from taking self-portraits to photographing friends it was a thrill to see how much my photos could positively affect others.
The responses I got to my first few photoshoots was outstanding! Through photography I learned I could help people increase their self esteem. Making others feel amazing about themselves is what I strive to do in every single photoshoot and it is the foundation of my business.
In those 5 years I have taken College courses in photography and have been working hard to shoot, learn and build my portfolio. www.DollyShotsPhotography.com is the flower that has finally blossomed from that seed. As of today the Dolly Shots Studio is open for business!
