For a while now, I have been wanting to test my creative abilities and put together a themed photo shoot with models, hair/makeup team, the whole sha-bang. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year,  so what better time then to create a shoot with a creepy twist. I love costumes, playing dress up and watching people's creative nature evolve. I'm fortunate enough to have an amazing team behind this project who believed in my vision. They helped me really bring these characters to life. Introducing, The Emerick Freak Show.

 Lion Tamer Tia: Strong both in the mind and body, this woman embodies everything tough. She is the backbone of the circus, she has a lion for a pet after all. After a long day of rehearsals, her not so predictable lion lashed out, leaving gashes across her face. She wasn't happy about this, which led to the beheading of her precious feline.

 Tattooed Freak Jonny: A walking canvas who is freakishly obsessed with pain. This guy doesn't care about much, except for the love he has for Tia, the lion tamer.

 Ms Manic Laine: A big kid at heart, her bubbly personality enjoys to be the center of attention. She puts on an entertaining act with magic and trickery. For those who are unamused, well let's just say you don't want to upset her.

 Balancing Bella Stephanie: Delicate and beautiful, this lady brings a soft touch to the circus. Her bright green eye and lustful lips are enough to get the men in the crowd howling for more. Her husband, Strong Man Avo had such a problem with this attention that he put an end to it one night with a bullet through her head. All that remains is her chilling spirit, who cries out for her lover every night.

 Strong Man Avo: Full of strength and as stubborn as a bull, this man enjoys a good fight. Looking for trouble at every cost leads to the death of his beautiful wife, Stephanie.
