An image, titled “Blood Dress”, from photographer Melissa Trotter, is taking the horror community by storm. Trotter, owner of Stolen Innocence Photography, has an amazing talent for capturing the dark and beautiful.

Trotter rarely photos anything other than images of her design. The reason, she said she felt like she “would be cheating people. I’ve found that I only get really excited about doing my own designs.
