Fashion Editorial – Black and White

Fashion & Beauty

Aesthetically I have a few constants in my life – Black and White Fashion Editorial photos are one of them! There’s something about the way black and white makes me feel. It’s instantly cooler, sexier, and feels as though you’ve stopped time in some special way. You take away all of the color, and distraction and just see right into the soul of the sitter. It also takes me back to my darkroom days, spending hours and hours working on one image at a time by hand. It’s so easy to take all of that for granted now that photos are instant and you can blast out hundreds in one sitting. I really like to remember the old days, and working on each image as if it were precious. To me I still feel that way with every click. Each moment is intentional. I work with my sitter to create and capture a specific feeling. These photos were taken in my old closet and we literally threw everything in the corner of the room (yes, we are both crazy, messy and move quickly). I stood in our bathroom looking through the doorway into the closet and wanted to capture that feeling of admiring someone from afar and getting an intimate glimpse into a moment with them.

I absolutely LOVE photographing Amy because she is so open and free in front of the camera. From the tiniest movement of her hand to flipping her hair she knows how to work it. We actually both were signed by the same agency here in Cincinnati (back in the day)- Wings Models. I highly recommend them if you plan to travel for modeling. They had me signed with Ford in NYC so quickly and it was a great experience getting to see inside the fashion industry at such a young age.

Bridal Fashion & Beauty – Robin McKerrell Photography

Fashion & Beauty, Weddings

As most of you already know I’m obsessed with fashion & beauty photography. So I’m super excited to share some recent work with a few of my faves. I’ve been wanting to photograph Rachel FOREVER! We modeled together a loooong time ago with Wings. She’s traveled a ton and worked all over the countryworld which isn’t a suprise when you watch her in front of the camera. And that face…..are you kidding me?! The camera & I both love her. This shoot was a little different for me because I booked two blondes. Alyssa, my other model…who I also LOVE to photograph is gorgeous.  I knew going into this shoot that I wanted the images to be sexy and I wanted girls that could rock out these sleek body hugging gowns-luckily for me these girls undoubtedly did just that!

Sexy Beach Reveal:Never Before Seen

Fashion & Beauty

Continuing my attempt to warm up this winter I have another post. This is a photo I took a few years back in Miami, FL. I can’t tell you enough about my love for Miami and especially shooting there on the beach. I had a blast, met some amazing people, and had the opportunity to photograph quite a few beautiful models! Here’s a never before seen shot of Rosette from my archives. I will be digging through my hard-drive in the next few days to see what else I can come up with to warm your winter spirits! Please come back & enjoy.

Cincinnati Boudoir Photographer : Robin McKerrell Photography

Boudoir, Fashion & Beauty

I’m so excited its February!! Why? Because I LOVE sexy boudoir photography! This is the best time of year to tear off the scarf, gloves, coats, and layers and reveal a little something more. Let’s play in front of the camera. I offer really fun boudoir albums to showcase your best shots which make great gifts for Valentines day (to all of my newly engaged ladies this can make the perfect wedding gift too).

Not engaged yet? No problem…..boudoir shots are a blast and you will cherish them forever For YOURSELF. There’s nothing like a hot photo to get you ready for summer! Check out my Pinterest board for ideas & inspiration. Worried about those extra holiday pounds? No problem! That’s what photoshop is for 😉 I personally hand retouch every boudoir shot to give you the perfect magazine look. I promise you will feel absolutely stunning and 100% confident.

The most important thing I learned from 12 years of modeling is how to look thin in photos & I will teach you the tricks! Here are a few of my favorite photos from a shoot that I did at the 21C hotel here in Cincinnati for the Weston Gallery’s show Exhibitionism III. Here’s a link to my video that was displayed at the Weston for the event.
