Check out a few of the photographs we made together. A true professional. Let us know what you think in the comments and check out what she wrote below.

Hi, my name is Kaitlyn Sedlacek. I’m from Chicago, Illinois. I’m currently a senior in high school and plan to study Early Childhood Special Education next year. I enjoy working with children and I get to do that now as a tumbling coach for 2-5 year olds.
I’ve been modeling for a little over a year. One of the things I love most is meeting new people and trying new concepts. I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful, creative, and inspiring people through modeling and I hope to meet more. I love being able to go on adventures and try new things and get some awesome pictures on the way! I truly appreciate all the experiences modeling has given me and I’m looking forward to learning and growing more. Her Instagram

Gigi Michele on the streets at NYFW 2022

During New York Fashion Week 2022, I was connected to Gigi, who is at present, represented by Westhaven International. WH IG .

I was so impressed by her maturity and modeling abilities. Her skills are quite impressive. We were able to shoot a few sets in a very short period of time, and all with excellent results. She was professional and a joy to work with!

Look for Gigi on CL (coxleather.com) soon for a feature wearing leather skirts.

Here are some selections from the first look. Let us know what you think of this set and please be sure to follow her and see what she has to say below.

Gigi Michele

Hello I’m Gigi Michele a teen model from Wisconsin.  I am passionate about everything that I do.  I have been modeling for a year and a half now.  I love high fashion, editorial, glamour, and most any other types of shots.  I have been fortunate enough to partner with some fantastic boutiques, designers, and photographers to help grow their business and my portfolio.  I have also had the opportunity to walk on several run ways during their fashion weeks over the past year including: Paris, Milan, Chicago, Orlando, and New York!  My goal is to continue to grow and learn as a model.  My hope is to continue expanding my portfolio to include walking in all the major fashion weeks in the world.  As well as work closely with designers and brands to make their visions come to life through print and commercial work.  I am not afraid of hard work and am willing to always go the extra mile to exceed the project expectations.  I would love to work with you someday!

A Beautiful Proposal

A Beautiful Proposal

Engagement Season and Valentines Day are here and love is in the air.

I’m really loving this photo session with Jason and his Fiancé. Jason surprised her with a well planned proposal (photos of the real moment are so great) and then we did some engagement photographs after.

A few people have asked if I still do this kind of work. Why yes, yes I do. Please have look and let me know what you think!

Sterling Crawford The Artist

Sterling Crawford The Artist

Sterling is a painter. She made a time to come into the studio to update her headshots for her art business. I have known her since her dance years, and have fond memories of us discussing painting and art. When she sent me some examples of her work I was so impressed by her abilities. Here are some selected photographs from the session, a statement she put together and some of her latest works. I also attached some links so you cans her work and message her for commisions. The portrait / headshot images are raw with no post editing.

Which is your favorite, and best for an artist portrait?

Being an analytical business graduate and accounting professional, painting is my way of allowing myself to be patient, concentrated, and in my own world filled with music, color, and creativity. I would like to say that I chose painting, but in reality – painting chose me. 

I grew up interested in art as I’d sit on my grandmother’s floor sketching and tracing, and after taking high-level art in high school, I decided I wanted to pursue a major in Fine Art. I did go through with it and study Studio Art at Clemson University, but after two weeks of studying negative vs. positive space, I decided I wanted to change my major to Business. After my first year, I transferred to College of Charleston hoping to be inspired by the lovely Architecture and History. There, I graduated with a degree in Finance in 2019. 

A few months post-graduate, I was commissioned to paint a portrait of a dog for a Napa Valley winery. This simple painting was the jumpstart to my painting career as I received more than 4 dog commissions from viewers of the Winery dog commission in CA within just a few months. People were wanting more. 

Dog portrait and Landscape commissions have built the start of my career in painting over the past 2 years, however it is evolving into much more. I am inspired by many things, including sculptures, furniture, interior design, architecture, and cultures. Creativity is my main motivator, and in 2022 I aim to focus on developing collections where I am able to explore techniques and textures, and ultimately hone my personal artistic brand. 

Traditional Studio Portraits of Children

Traditional Studio Portraits of Children.

As a company, Cox Photography has made photographs of children since the beginning. For the past 20 years, the tradition of child in studio portraiture has become more rare. With phones and the closing of many traditional photography studios, it is becoming a lost and dying art. Many no longer understand the old lighting techniques, have a studio, nor the required backdrops etc.. But Cox Photography has all of the required components. Our full service studio in Downtown Greenville, SC has everything needed including the technical skills for the task. And perhaps more importantly, we have the people skills to treat you professionally and the business experience to execute and make your visit a success from start to finish.

I really love everything about this portrait. And, I especially think the toes are the icing on the cake.

Of course, and to note, we also do outside photography and will make an on location children’s post in the near future, so please check back or subscribe to the website below.

We are able to take appointments during the week (and an occasional weekend), and typically start the conversation on our website contact form.
