News and Nudes (not PG)

This Sunday saw DH and I make a mad dash across to the Carolina Coast for a little photography…  Bright blue sunny skies graced the world on one side and then on the other side of the island, massive thunderheads brewed up above…

Our main objective for going was to grab the opportunity to do a dawn beach shoot with a fine art nude model… images below – please note, they contain nudity!!


Getting the beach to ourselves meant an early rise of 0430am…. followed by a half hour drive to our location…
The effort was well worth it indeed… being blessed with glorious light, pristine sand and only the odd ‘wide-eyed’ fisherman for company!
Thanks Jamie Ann!

Catching Up

Busy times have been had over the last few weeks, teaching in California with Karen Burns and then heading across the pond to host a Fine Art Nude in the UK with Joan Blease.
Aside from the “work” element, there were some wonderful opportunities to shoot a few lovely models along the way…

blog_25-June-B-2015Beginning with the lovely Fredau Wallace…. both in the Studio and on location at Crosby.

blog_25-June-D-2015Then a touch of serendipity allowed me the chance to work with “Ivory Flame” – something I have wanted to do for quite a while and turned out to be quite the fabulous shoot….

That’s about it for now and I hope the next post won’t be quite the same age in coming your way…..

joanne thieme huffman - The only thing I can say is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

CAROLE MASSEY - Excellent work Marie. Thanks for you shares. I always appreciate seeing what you are up to with your trusty Mark III 🙂

A Memorable Weekend

DH and I started off the Memorial Weekend with date night at the movies – to see Far from the Madding Crowd… and memorable was the rendition of the Thomas Hardy Novel indeed!

Carolina Spring days beckoned and next day saw us up way in the High Country at Little Switzerland Inn, where a number of pleasant hours were spent dinning on Lobster and drinking some deliciously cool NC beer… and enjoying the vistas from our perch at the restaurant…


Then a tad more action was called for the next day and we headed towards Fayetville in search of some  “hosses”! and were not disappointed with the fare offered by 7 Branch Farm… where they were holding a most excellent Barrel Race event…


And to cap the weekend off… some Fine Art Nude in the Woods seemed like a good idea.. with the lovely Keira…


joanne thieme huffman - A great array of photos. Looks like you had a great week-end.

Alison - Love the little tykes. OXOX M
