Hello all of you wonderful California folk! Sonoran Muses, the traveling portrait artist from Tucson, AZ will be coming to Santa Cruz County (Freedom), California June 20- 27 to fascilitate wild transformational photo shoot experiences for women and men amid stunning raw landscapes throughout Northern Cali! It is Sonoran Muses's mission to help people honor their sacred feminine or masculine energies by using items from nature to create a styling look with headdresses and accessories that help each person reconnect to nature… and themselves.
The lovely Deana Cooper has once again graciously offered to host me in her beautiful new home in Freedom, California! I will be creating an inviting styling space for your makeup and hairstyling right in her home! For those of you who have never done a shoot with me before here is how it works:
I will have 2 headdress options available for you to choose from… a living floral headdress created from locally harvested flowers and plants or a feather headdress created by Rainbow Goddess Designs. I will discuss with you a styling plan for your makeup beforehand and you will bring outfit options for us to choose one from for your shoot.
On your scheduled session date, you and one other model will be getting your makeup and photography done on the same day but you will have individual portraits taken on location in the woodlands or on the beach. If you happen to be doing your shoot with a friend, we can of course get a couple shots of you together! Since I am flying in from Arizona I will not have a vehicle, so either the host or a model will need to drive us to the shoot location. Carpooling is highly encouraged!
Last year I visited some beautiful locations for these photoshoots throughout Northern California including: Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Quail Hollow, Natural Bridges State Beach and Point Lobos State Reserve. If you have suggestions for places to go that aren't more than 1 hour from Freedom, Cali then please let me know!
For $325 your photo shoot includes:
1. Professional makeup and hairstyling
2. Choice of living floral or feather headdress
3. Choice of woodland or beach location
4. Wardrobe and styling advice
5. Gentle posing suggestions
6. 8 high-res edited digital images from the shoot
If you are interested in signing up, there will be a $100 deposit due when you schedule your shoot date. I can take deposits via paypal or snail mail. I am so excited to do these shoots again this year and am looking forward to seeing some of the women that I worked with last year as well as making some new friends in California!
