Photography: Classic Clare

   Working with Clare was a dream come true. She had that classic old school beauty kinda face, and with a rocking bod to match.
Her face reminded me of old school movie that you will watch in black and white, and many years later when you finally get to see what that actress looked liked in color, all you can saw is woooow!
Thanks for letting me capture such a nostalgic feeling!

Photography: Liss

I’ve never been shy to mix colors and prints. And it usually shows in my illustrations.
This photo shoot was no exception.
Working with Liss was a real pleasure, especially since all the patterns and brightness didn’t take away from the grungy look I really wanted to perceive. Her vibe was ready to work, when she brought out her personal speaker, and I had no trouble with letting go and snapping away.

Thanks for bringing some spunk to our session Liss!

Hasta la proxima,

A little late than never right? I’ve given my blog a bit of a breather due to the overwhelming amount of different things I had going on. If you notice my last post was near Halloween….yikes.
I’ve been going through a lot of changes in the meantime, both personal and creatively and I hope you guys are down for the ride.
I want to start by sharing  an event that spoke to me deep in my soul. The Good Vibes & Chill wellness workshop was created by curly haired blogger Ada from allthingsada.com
   This event is all about goal setting, manifesting good things into your life, and making your vision count. It was exactly what I, and all of the girl’s who attended needed. We cried, laughed, hugged and bonded in ways we weren’t prepared for.
I was fortunate to be in charge of the photography for the event, and I had so much fun catching reactions and moments that will be cherished.

To stay updated on Ada’s upcoming events follow her on her instagram @allthingsada, and to stay up to day with anything about me, personal, illustration or photography find me on @millistephania
Until next time,

Photography : Meana Rose

I met up with the lovely Meara Rose . Meara is a plus size model, a pianist, and is full of some good posing. At least that’s how I felt every time I clicked the shutter button. Meara was so easy to work with, and when I saw that corset from Orchard’s Corset, my jaw just dropped. Talk about a statement piece!

Toodles,

Photography: Soulful

 This year I have fallen in love with my camera more than ever. I’ve been putting in work, and I can see the growth. I’m so proud of myself. I know you guys are usually used to me drawing and photographing women, but I’m here to tell you, that I haven’t forgotten about you men. Working with Sonny was a nice experience, and who wouldn’t have a good time with laugh lines like his?
I have so many more photo sessions that I can’t wait to share with you guys, so please stay posted.
Best,
Dont’t forget to follow Sonny on his IG: @soul__ful and like always you can find more of me on either of my instagrams: @millistephania & @millistephaniaphotography

Photo Journal: ASAP ROCKY

    If you were to see my calendar, you would either be really impressed or you would be horrified of how packed and color coded it is. I wasn’t always like this, I used to  be so “go with the flow”. Now I make lists (I’m always running out of paper, and yes I keep them digitally as well) On the calendar was a free presentation in one of Apple’s stores in Soho. I told a  friend to meet there, and since he was still far away, I decided to walk and catch some Pokemon (that’s another story for another day).

While making my way toward Soho to go see Mario. You know who it is, “Oh, baby you, you got what I need, but you say I’m just friend“. Yeah, you  know the song, I bet you sang that, didn’t you. I’m not a crazy Mario fan, he hasn’t really come out with any new music in a little bit, not that I’m aware of at least. But the singles he did have, I was always singing. And I have a huge love for concerts (even though this wasn’t concert) it was free, and anyone who knows me, knows that “free” is my favorite number.
I guess the universe had a different plan for me, because when I passed Madison Avenue, smack down the middle of the street was an interactive pop up hosted by Calvin Klein and Amazon Fashion. Of course I stopped and asked a event staff guy what was going on. I noticed the small stage, and I already knew someone was going to come out, they just had to, I felt it in my bones. I asked him who it would be and he didn’t know. He checked his email and told me ASAP. In my mind, I’m like okaaaaay, but ASAP who, ASAP FERG, ASAP ROCKY, the mob has a few people.. he just looked at me like I spoke Chinese. I grabbed his phone and read the name for myself. I knew it, ROCKY. I made my way inside.. duh! Like I’m going to go see Mario  now (if you ever see this Mario, no offense, I still like you).
I’m not gonna lie, I was getting a bit antsy, especially because it was starting to get to packed, and you know people when something is free, pushing and shoving. But I was already pretty hype because you have to soak it in, that you don’t always know everything. You can’t plan every single detail of your life. I got to experience a wonderful moment, and if my friend wasn’t running late, I wouldn’t have walked, I wouldn’t have bumped into a better (who an compare?) event and be up close to such a handsome man…. oh yes ROCKY… you are fine… any way (cough cough) Check out these shots I grabbed. Love!
  Oh, and you can see some more photographs of concerts that I captured on millistephaniaphotography.com

Illustration: Shaina Bundy

This drawing that I created gives me all types of Peg Bundy vibes. Maybe it’s all the leopard and half pinup-ed hair. When I saw Shaina‘s blue hair, I fell in love. yes this make up artist is extremely talented with a set of brushes, but what always leave me in awe is the crazy colors she puts on her hair. It makes me miss all of my the times I used to dye my hair. Shaina is the absolute sweetest, so I had no hesitation when starting this piece. I love when my illustrations make others happy and her reaction did not disappoint!
Catch you guys later,
 Oh, and don’t forget to see more of my illustrations on my instagram, and you can see Shaina’s work on HERE. and her Youtube HERE.

Illustration: Bum Shorts

I’ve never been one to call out sick out of work. I like to save my PTO days for important things—-like traveling. I must have miscalculated somehow because I now have 13 days of PTO that expire at the end of this month. How the hell did this happen?
I looked up a few flights to see where I could go at last minute’s notice.I had some interesting choices, but in the back of my mind all I kept thinking was..do I want to spend money or make money?
My first staycation was filled with both laziness and productivity all wrapped into one.
Let me explain.
I’ve been waking up late, and spending my sweet ass time on my couch, binge watching Parks & Recreation. I started to rewatch it, and two days in I’m already up to season 4. What is life? In my defense, at least I was drawing the whole time.
I ended up finishing 3 personal drawings and 2 commissioned illustrations. Yay me!
So naturally, I have to share with you guys. (the rest will be shared in their respective posts)
This pink haired beauty has me jealous with her cute little jean romper. I wish I could pull off cheeky little shorts like this, but the way my bum is set up (Kevin Hart voice)
She also makes me miss all of my colorful hair. I recently shared a collage on ig if you guys want to see it HERE. I’ve been thinking about purple hair a lot, but right now that’s not going to happen. I need to focus on keeping my hair healthy first!
