Gary Barragan Photography // Brooklyn Bella with Alexis Gibson & Alexis Mattingly of The Beauty Patrol
When Louisville and Southern Indiana talents collaborate you garner dynamic results, and sometimes dine upon a delectable cannoli in the the process. On behalf of our triple storm team, I'm proud to release the full set of Brooklyn Bella. Alexis Gibson and I had been talking about working together since the summer, and working closely alongside The Beauty Patrol, I knew they had a new talented assistant, Alexis Mattingly, anxious to learn the ropes of a photoshoot... this presented a perfect opportunity for a small team that could make a solid impact. From Alexis M's light yet flawless touch of makeup, to Alexis G's nailing poses with in seconds, we were knocking out shots left and right. It seemed the longest part of the shoot was figuring which environments to use, and even with that, it did not take long since the surrounding colors and hues blended perfectly with the styling. The day couldn't of been more perfect, especially with the moody overcast that wrapped Southern Indiana in a beautiful soft light. I initially planned to use a Profoto B2 and mix the two lights, but when mother nature gives you this quality of light, you best make use of it! The whole set is below, along with some behind the scene video and imagery to give our collection a robust body of work!
