Urban Legends Series: Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary 900x600 Urban Legends Series: Bloody Mary

 

“An urban legend that says that anyone who chants the words Bloody Mary three times in front of a mirror will summon a vengeful spirit. This spirit has been reported to do a variety of things to the person who summons her, including killing the person, scratching their eyes out, driving them mad or pulling them into the mirror with the spirit – generally referred to as the spirit of a woman or even a witch. This is an old legend, but in 1978 a folklorist named Janet Langlois published an essay on Bloody Mary, which led to the tale becoming a popular slumber party ritual done by girls as well as boys. No one knows the origins of the Bloody Mary legend; over the years, she has been rumored to be anything from a witch that was killed for practicing witchcraft to a modern-day woman killed in a car crash, depending on what part of the country you live in.”

In this session my model and I really wanted to bring to life the fear that this legend provided to children who had heard the stories!

Urban Legends Series: Haunted Dollhouse

Haunted Doll 900x575 Urban Legends Series: Haunted Dollhouse

 

You have heard the stories about dolls and dollhouses who seem to have a life of their own… but perhaps it’s not “their” life that they possess? 

For this shoot my model and I worked hard to really capture the essence of these potential hauntings.

Legend has it, that meeting your doppelganger is a sign of trouble to come. They usually represent an oncoming illness, death or other tragedy. 

In this session, my lovely model Lizzy and I worked together to bring about the eery feeling one might encounter when meeting their “double”.

Introducing: Dream Shoots

Loretta Lewis 105 900x600 Introducing: Dream Shoots

Dream shoots are in-depth conceptualized sessions where we take your vision, no matter how unique you may think it is, and make it a reality for you.

Sessions may be held in the studio, on location or a combination of both, depending upon the ultimate vision for your artwork. Images created during a dream shoot will usually involve much more editing than our normal sessions to help bring your fantasy to life. Continue reading »
