Ahna and the Snake

I don’t own any snakes myself. For my snake photoshoots, I bring in two awesome snake handlers that help set up the shoot.

I’m in love with these creatures, but shooting with them is challenging. The snakes, especially the large ones don’t like hanging off bodies. They have nothing to hang onto and feel insecure. So they either tighten around the models body or they slither away to more secure ground. 

Ahna was one of my two models for this shoot. You’ll see her a lot in my blog. She’s a true artist and always a pleasure to work with. She likes making costumes, like the chastity belt, her little black dress, the angel wing, and a death mask. For this shoot, she brought a couple of masks.
