We met up with the sanguine Kate and the perpetually animated Cainnan for a fun mother and son shoot in the swank Platinum Hotel. Kate is the owner and operator of Pretty. Sick. Beauty. in Henderson and we just knew she was going to show up looking like a million bucks, but the show stealer was the dashing young Cainnan who was sporting a dapper tuxedo from the wonderful girls at the much lauded Tuxedo Junction here in Las Vegas. They are without a doubt our go-to place for formal wear and can’t say enough about how great they are. Special thanks to Hava Busso at the Platinum for helping to arrange everything.young-boy-tuxedo-las-vegas

When I was told that zombies were invading Las Vegas, my first thought was to feed them my 5 month old baby boy. I know it sounds horrible, but when Amelia Cooper, the intrepid owner and helms-woman of Amelia C and Co. came to us and asked if we’d be down for shooting some zombies, I jumped at the chance with the only caveat being I had to have one with our little guy being eaten. I have plans to show it as his wedding some day. We have to have priorities after all.

We’ve worked with Amelia for so long, I’ve lost track of how many weddings and engagement sessions we’ve worked on together. She did Alicia’s hair and makeup for our own engagement photos, our shoot with Altf for Inside Edition as well as being a major player on our wedding day. Here are a few of the previous ones we’ve done, and you just might find a reference to the sugar skulls that we’ll be showing in our next post. We shot these at the spacious and lofty Altf Studios, and a special thanks to John and Dalisa Cooper for accommodating us as well as tolerating walkers and biters wandering around their dwelling. If you need zombie makeup in Las Vegas or So Cal, you know who to call.

Sit down, grab your anti-zombie viral infection kit and fortify your barricades, the zombies are coming and they’re badass.

Poor Wyatt. This was the most scared he looked, the rest of the time he was just cooing and laughing.

Rob Cooper, husband and owner with Amelia is one scary mofo. This gave me nightmares.

More gratuitous baby eating by the zombie horde. Never mind while he chews on his hand.
