Fredericksburg Texas Professional Portrait Photographer | Medusa Portraits


I wanted to try & set up a different type of photoshoot and I thought about the Greek Mythology legend …  Medusa

It took some planning, and thankfully, I had a lot of great help!

We started at Jay & Co Salon in Fredericksburg Tx.
Brandy Pate did an amazing job on our model Katrina’s make-up & hair!

Adding a bunch of rubber snakes in someone’s hair isn’t very easy, and she has a lot of patience.

We had so much fun when the other ladies had to stop by Brandy’s chair to see what in the world we were doing.   You just don’t see a bunch of snakes in someone’s hair very often!

So many laughs!

When Katrina was outside on the street – traffic literally stopped!

Katrina & I drove over to the Fredericksburg Theater Company for the photoshoot…. thank you Kerry Goff for providing us the indoor space and fantastic theater props!

We set up the studio lights, and changed her outfit. We used trash bags!!! Yes – hefty plastic trash bags.  Simple & clingy, when wrapped it looks kinda like a snakes skin actually.   Very cool.

We had a blast trying out different angles, lighting, etc…   Thank goodness those props are lightweight … even that huge rock!

black trash bags,  duct tape,  clamps,  patterned leggings, & heels

snake bracelet

Rubber Snakes with a larger rattle snake as the main snake.


Katrina nailed it!!!  Even with all those people watching us.

It was a great day!!!
