This series was an exploration of how clothes, intricate symbolism, and designs become objects of desire and worship, an editorial commentary about Our Lady of Sorrow. It depicts the intense suffering and grief Mother Mary experienced during the passing of our savior—Jesus Christ—as well as the courage, love, and trust Mary had as she received each new suffering. Our goal for this project was to use photography techniques to highlight these intense feelings and emotions.

BEHIND THE SCENES
In today's test shoot, we channeled our inner "Twiggy". I first met Rachel while I was helping out a friend to assist and style their photo shoot (check out Shane's work by clicking here), and immediately thought she would be absolutely perfect for this concept! She was awesome, and totally rocked this shoot! I hope you love this unique, Twiggy-inspired photo shoot as much as I do! Follow Rachel on Instagram at @rayy_reee

Happy New Year! With each new year we get a fresh start, a new beginning if you will. No one can go back in time and change what has happened so let go of the past and learn from it! That is why I have decided that 2017 is my year. It is the year when I am going to chase after my dreams and make them into a reality!
With my new found determination, I have decided to try and shoot at least once a week if not more for the rest of the year. It's a pretty big jump from what I used to do which was maybe shoot once a month... Anyways, I've also included improving my marketing and networking skills to my New Years resolution list which I've been pretty bad at but everyone's got to start somewhere right? So stay tuned on my blog for updates on my latest shoots.
