Over the last month or so, Renee of Renee Hollingshead Photography and I have been attemping to plan a Halloween-themed shoot with some incredible dancers. Although it was a bit last minute in planning due to our crazy schedules, we couldn’t not take these photos. Kristina and Rachel, both college-aged dancers from the Maryland area, were awesome enough to jump aboard and being our amazing models! Renee and I did the makeup, while my sister, Halie, did the girls’ hair. We wanted Rachel to have a ghostly look to her, while Kristina had the Día de los Muertos skeleton look!
The five of us headed over to the creepiest place we could think of- Glenn Dale Hospital in PG County. Many people say this huge abandoned hospital was shut down due to a tuberculosis outbreak, until later reopening as a hospital for the criminally insane and then shutting down again in the 80’s. The hospital spans across a huge plot of land, with all the buildings apparently connected by underground tunnels. There are horror stories among horror stories of the dead patients roaming the halls of the hospital to this day.
Take a look below at some of my favorite shots I took from this freaky evening and be sure to leave these girls some love! Also be sure to check out Renee’s amazing photos at her site here. She has some awesome behind the scenes shots as well!
Renee and I are planning on teaming up again (and bringing in others as well!) for another themed shoot with dancers. If you’re interested in helping with hair, makeup, or modelling, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
