Our friends Brian and Nikie Gerber with One World Media wanted to get together for a shoot… something that will be happening more and more as we enjoy working together and love each others work! A few days beforehand, I asked my (now ex) husband Todd Keith if I could turn him into a devil.. and without hesitation he shaped his beard and mustache for the devilish look, we went to thrift shops to find his outfit, and I picked up some horns at our local costume shop. I LOVE this man, hehe.
Brian secured our location with some of his friends at Manning Orchards in Kaysville, Utah. It was perfect timing as the flowers were all blooming. When we first got there, it was raining, and luckily we didn’t have to wait too long for it to pass (thank god)… I couldn’t wait to get my husband out of the car and to start shooting him, hehehe. Brian also had plans to shoot with Sharyl Sykora, a local gorgeous model with wicked talented artistic skills… she created her wardrobe with an owl theme. Heather Shelton did a fantastic job on makeup! It was amazing how she matched the location so well, absolutely stunning. I had the privilege of snapping a few shots before we left.

My sister Kristi Lauren and her boyfriend (musician) Tom Bennett also came with us, they are adorable and we came up with some creative shooting with them and the devil, hehe. I also got some fun video of us playing around, hehe.
Another shot of Sharyl with her amazing wardrobe and makeup:
Here are some behind the scene shots:
On the way home, Todd and I quickly stopped at a refinery to shoot some devil pics for stock photography… there are a lot more shots I would like to do with him as the devil with stock photography in mind. We saved the horns and may end up doing this again some time this year.
