THE STORY OF A PHOTOGRAPHER AND SET DESIGNER
Irene started her path in Photography in 2007 after a 4 year career in commercial and fashion modeling. As part of her training she completed a 4 year intensive apprenticeship under a well respected photographer in Scottsdale, Arizona. Irene discovered a passion for creating unique Maternity and Portraiture works early on in her Photography career after being hired for a few different body paint Maternity photo shoots and artist headshot update shoots. Once she found her niche she started to develop her knowledge of set design to further expand her creative possibilities. She enjoys bringing whimsy and joy to her shoots through her sets and personality. Irene specializes in fantasy, post apocalyptic and custom settings, creating truly unique photos for anyone who books her. A lot of the props for the sets are hand built by Irene or her fiancé Jack specifically for a booked concept. She rotates out themed rooms in her studio every 6 months or so. Besides building the set and taking and editing the photos for the session, Irene pose coaches when requested bringing to light her vast pose dictionary and 16 years of experience as a professional model in front of the camera.
