Norma in da house

Catchy title aside, it’s crazy how long I’ve been friends with Norma. I’ve actually lost track of how many years. If only real life had this reminders of friendship anniversaries like on FB. But I’ve recently moved into a new(well new to me) house, and having shot in Norma’s apartment before, which could possibly be another post we decided to shoot in my new place.
As often is the case with my work we kept it simple and minimal(i know, i know). But I tend to find I don’t really like too much to distract from who I’m shooting with. Maybe later this year I’ll dabble in some more elaborate looks. Maybe.

I hear tie dye is coming back strong.

There are three things I really love about my new digs. 1. There’s a ton of natural light 2. The kitchen and 3. there’s an archway leading from the living room to the kitchen, so of course I had to use it in this set.

A throwback set w/ Quyhn

Recently I’ve been going through all my old hard drives archiving photos from the past years. And I had a little idea to do a series of like throwback posts. First reason is because it can be kind of fun going back and looking at your progression(if any) and it’s just kind of nostalgic.
This set is actually the first time I got to work with Quyhn. I drove out to Spring on an invite to shoot and hang with another Houston photographer whose studio at the time was there. Me and Quyhn had wanted to shoot together for a pretty good while before this, but schedules kept getting in the way. Luckily we happened to be at the studio on the same day! And I think the results were pretty epic.

Quyhn brought an awesome lingerie set to shoot in and with the dressing room/make up room I wanted to go for a bus getting ready type of vibe.

The studio was actually located in this business park that had a speed and body shop right next door. So there was a old stripped out hot rod that we just had to shoot next to.

It’s pretty interesting looking back on old photos and remembering my thought process as I made them. How I searched for intriguing angles and ways to photograph Quyhn with the car. For example shooting through the window like in the shot above.

I think I may have been a little more creative back in the day. lol
No, but seriously. A lot of it does come down to Quyhn just being awesome. The few times we’ve shot together have produced epic photos that are some of my favorites I’ve ever taken. I’m thinking of doing more of these archive/ throwback posts. Let me know what you guys think. I have hard drives full of old shoots.
And be sure to follow Quyhn on IG @_moonchildrose_ and for more of my work follow me @corychrry

Hailey Beth Austin

As I mentioned in the post featuring Agatha a couple months ago I got to make a quick trip to Austin and while I was there I got to shoot once again with my good friend Hailey Beth. I know I’ve shot with Hailey quit a few times, but that’s ok. Sometimes you build up a good relationship with someone and it just makes the creation process so much easier.
For the first look I simply took one of my old Chrry tiger tees and cropped it, and it made for a great minimal yet still sexy look. Maybe I should make a small run of crop tees for the ladies??

With a simple change of top and location in the apartment we were able to make some more great shots. This is one of the things I love about working with Hailey and really anyone that I get the chance to know and work with quit a bit.

As it started getting late in the evening we shot one more look. Hailey changed into a swimsuit and as it has been well established my love for reflections and mirrors… there was a closet in the bedroom that was full length. So… of course I had to use it!

I know this post was kind of long, but I wasn’t sure if it would be any better to break this up into multiple posts for each outfit. So we’ll see how just one post works. And if you want to see more of Hailey be sure to follow her on IG @haileybethh. And I look forward to the next time I get to create with Hailey!

Hailey Beth pt 2

Back again with another photo set! For this set with Hailey I’m going to go ahead and smoosh two outfits into one posts. Literally from day to night. For the first outfit Hailey had a Yellow bikini that I just knew had to be shot out on the balcony of the apartment. Which is a testament to the bipolarness of Houston weather considering this was like winter time.

As the day transitioned to night time, and the rain started coming down we moved inside. and with that Hailey changed into a more indoorsy look. And per common theme with my work there’s quite a bit of reflections in this set as there was a huge mirror in the apartment… which I had no choice but to use.

I wasn’t kidding when I said it was a huge mirror

I hope you enjoyed this set as much as I enjoyed shooting and creating with Hailey. And I hope to keep up with this blog and creating new content to share. And as always don’t forget to follow Hailey @haileybeth on IG if you’re not already! Til next time guys!

Hailey Beth Pt.1

I decided to break up this photo set with Hailey just for the sake of saving you guys from endlessly scrolling lol. As previously mentioned in my post with Stevie, she came to Houston with Hailey. So if some of the background seems familiar… it’s because it’s the same apartment. I think it just shows how different of shots you can get in the same place.
I’m no stranger to shooting with Hailey and having shot together a few times now I think we both now how to work together to get images we both love. Or at least I love them. And it’s always easy going and fun to shoot with her.

That wraps up part one! I’m not sure whether I’ll just do two parts or go ahead and break it up into three.
But regardless feel free to follow me on IG: @corychrry for new content and follow @haileybethh.

Stevie

Sometimes the people you meet happen through others. Stevie is a prime example of of someone you meet through others. At the time she lived in Austin which is a couple hours north of Houston which is also where my friend Haileybeth lives. It just so happened Hailey and I had not shot together in a while and she was coming to town and she told me she was coming with her friend Stevie. I had already wanted to shoot with Stevie prior to this but just could never seem to find time to try and set something up and make the trip to Austin.
Turned out to be great timing as Stevie was preparing to make a move to Los Angeles! Which she’s since done. So if you happen to be in Los Angeles look her up @sarahstevimusic and support her music as well!
Through Hailey and Stevie we had access to a pretty nice apartment near the 610 loop that had a very nice balcony and decor. This turned out to be a real blessing as it turned out to be a gross rainy day outside. But what else can you expect form Houston, Tx in November lol. But the clouds made for some great soft lighting for the shots on the balcony. So can’t complain too much. Hopefully I’ll get to make a trip to Los Angeles soon and link up with Stevie again soon.

It’s always awesome meeting and shooting with new people! Especially when they’re as cool as Stevie! Seriously don’t forget to give her a follow and support her music! And until the next post, be well.

Moonchildrose pt3 (finale)

We finally find ourselves at the last post for this series with Quyhn. I can’t thank Quyhn enough for shooting with me and being such an awesome subject. And a huge thank you to those who follow my work and have interacted and left your thoughts. And I look forward to creating more content through out the year and onward.
For the last look we once again kept it pretty simple. But thanks to Quyhn’s awesome ability to pose and move naturally we made some pretty epic photos. Honestly some of my favorite that I’ve made… period.

This wraps up this photo set, but remember to be on the look out for future posts. And feel free to follow me on IG @corychrry for more updates. Hope you are all well and to hear form you! Cheers!

MoonchildRose pt.2

Continuing with at least one new post a week, I give you another look with the gorgeous Quyhn! We were fortunate to have the use of a kitchen with a lot of natural light. So she brought a white outfit that flowed perfectly with the setting. I’ve probably said it a thousand times but I am a huge fan of simplicity, so when she showed me the outfit I knew it was going to work out perfectly! And of course now Valentines day has come and gone, but this is only the second look of three that I’ll be sharing from our shoot. And I also had two other shoots leading up to Valentines Day. So with that said I hope you’re enjoying the content so far and I’m looking forward to creating even more content in the future!

I can’t state enough just how much I love natural light. Of course there are times when you have to for lack of a better term create your light. But when it’s there… use it! And luckily where we shot had plenty of natural light coming in form big windows, and had bright cabinets and counter tops that bounced and reflected the light beautifully.

Be well and hope to hear some feedback as well. Don’t be a stranger.

MoonchildRose pt.1

It’s been a while! After a bit of a hiatus or break or whatever you want to call it, I have decided to try to keep this page updated a little more often. Recently I’ve begun shooting again, and usually what follows is the thought of what to do with the images once they’re done so… let’s post them here! Between work and having classes I can’t promise non stop new material, but in-between new sets I can post some older sets I don’t really have shared anywhere except Instagram. I will try my best to do at least a post per week.
Since that’s now been established let’s start off with one of my first shoots to start the year of 2019! It’s always awesome seeing old friends again. Especially those you haven’t seen in a few years. One such person is Quyhn @ _moonchildrose_ on IG. We first shot together years ago and made some awesome photos!
I’ve never been an overly complicated person, especially when it comes to photography. So we came up with some simple outfit ideas to shoot. Nothing too fancy, but the end results were great.

Quyhn definitely embraced her inner big cat lol. It’s always great to shoot with someone who uses every inch of their environment during a shoot.

I’ll end this post here, but it’s definitely to be continued. This was one of three outfits I’d wish to share with you. So stay tuned!
