Gates Pass Photoshoot for Le Bomb Shop with P. Bencomo Fotography

Relatively recently the wonderful Melissa from Le Bomb Shop contacted me asking to model an outfit for her (as I was given the opportunity to do last year when she found my humble little Instagram), and naturally jumped at the chance! As she had a desert landscape in mind for this range of photos to show off the Senorita Pop-Art style skirt she wanted me to model, I knew exactly where I wanted to go to show off Tucson’s desert without the obstruction of modern cars and houses: Gates Pass. My go-to photographer, the amazing Phillip from P. Bencomo Fotography, was more than happy to take the images for me, so we agreed on a trek up into the mountains to catch the rising sun before the heat waves made shooting impossible.

While we only got one image that caught the sunrise, I love how moody it turned out! I had assumed I would be exhausted, waking up at 2am to get ready for my shoot, but my body felt surprisingly alert as I posed, and the lack of sleep didn’t catch up to me until the drive home.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the venture:

This one in particular is my favorite shot showing off the desert. So beautiful! Such a great composition on Phillip’s part.

I loved getting to play around with the way this top tied itself as well. So versatile, and I warmly welcome any article of clothing that fills out my rainbow wardrobe a bit more. Rust is such a rare color to find with vintage reproduction clothing, yet it matches so much!

Since we were driving up to the desert at the crack of dawn, I figured I might as well pack a few of my own outfits to take advantage of the opportunity, and we ended up with some of my favorite close-ups and sitting images of all time in the batch (we’ll ignore that darn stray strand in my bangs that kept popping out…):

Hope you enjoy this photoset as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Photoshoot with P. Bencomo Photography

Hello everyone!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of partaking in a photoshoot with Phillip Bencomo and three gorgeous vintage cars! Although I’ve shared a few on Instagram and my Facebook page already, I wanted to post all of my favorites here. It was a very hot and sunny day in Tucson (and boy were those cars burning by the time noon rolled around), but it was such a pleasure working with Phillip again for my second official photoshoot. As a gal who takes most of her photos with the help of her best friend at the back of a library or in front of her house, it was wonderful getting to work with lights and props – and seeing the gorgeous blue shade of one of the cars, I knew I had to break out my new vintage swimsuit! Although I was hesitant up until the very last moment since I’ve always struggled with self-consciousness about my legs (and of course, my pantyhose ripped the first time I put them on), I took the plunge, and boy am I glad I did!
Hope you enjoy!
