Richmond Tarot Project: The Fool

Now that the Richmond Tarot Project has a future home at Gallery5, we've stepped up our shooting schedule to one card per week and it has been HECTIC. Between these shoots, engagement shoots, weddings, and family sessions, I barely have time for my day job, my beau, and our adventures (like buying a Prius)! 

However, this week I'm playing catchup and I'm happy to share this awesome card: THE FOOL featuring a very special model, my friend Prabir (from the band Gold Rush). As with most cards, there are many interpretations of the fool, but the one that embodies why I picked Prabir is this one:

The Fool is the spirit in search of experience. He represents the mystical cleverness within us, the childlike ability to tune into the inner workings of the world.

This is the last card I'm going to be sharing on this site as we keep future cards secret in preparation for our show in October! However, you can see all the already-released cards ON PINTEREST and you'll still get lots of yummy behind-the-scenes peeks along the way--so stay tuned!

Richmond Tarot Project: Justice

So excited to share this card with y'all because it features my excellent partner-in-crime, Emaleigh, as JUSTICE, which also happens to be the card that corresponds to our zodiac sign, Libra. Some words associated with this card are: decision, intellect, analysis, realism, responsibility, rationality and clear vision.

Check back tomorrow for some amazing outtakes (it was HARD to choose a final card!) and behind-the-scenes action!

Richmond Tarot Project: The Hermit

Two weeks ago, we had a very busy weekend of TWO Tarot shoots! And now I'm so happy to debut the very first Tarot card featuring a gentleman, The Hermit. We shot this in Southside on Buttermilk trail, practically on top of the much-used mountain bike trail, and were constantly bombarded with hundreds of inchworms ALL OVER THE PLACE. Occupational hazards abound! But we stuck it out and I think captured the essence of this card. Enjoy!

Richmond Tarot Project Behind-the-Scenes: Wheel of Fortune!

I had such a great time shooting the Wheel of Fortune card for the Richmond Tarot Project, in part because of how awesome the folks at Amuse in the VMFA were. However, there was so much greatness happening--great modeling, great art direction, and great site staff--that it was almost impossible to pick a favorite for the card! So I wanted to give y'all a peek into some of the shots that didn't make it to the final cut. What do you think?

Richmond Tarot Project: The High Priestess Sneak Peek

I was very lucky to have Samantha Merz model for me yesterday as I continue my work on The Richmond Tarot Project. Sam took the role of The High Priestess, an important (#2!) card in the higher arcana of the traditional Tarot deck. 

"This card assures you to trust your gut, to be passive and wait to respond to provocations instead of provoking responses. The world has many secrets in it to be unlocked and taking the less obvious path to any or all of these answers is the route favored by this card."

Although it was extremely cold, Sam was a wonderful sport and not only withstood two outfit changes, but was shoeless for most of the shoot! I'm still putting the finishing touches on the final shot, but until it's done I'll give these three teasers!
