A smile that could kill a shark.

Don't let this gorgeous blonde fool you. Although she has a taste for finer clothing labels, she is in no way you average bombshell. Austyn has a sense of humor that you would not expect, She is extremely Brilliant and has the biggest heart.

I met Austyn through our mutual frined Barry. She had been seeking a makeup artist and boy did she come to the right place! Not only did I throughly enjoy the getting to know you part of my process and learning all about this introverted nerd in disguise, But I also love her fierce modeling poses and the fact that the camera loves her. I have a good feeling you will too.

I hear that train a comin' its rollin' around the bend....

First thing I notice when Jennifer walked into my apartment was " wow she has really pretty hair". Then after talking to her for awhile over hairstyles and makeup plans I realized that she was really laid back, witha great sense of humor and not to mention very pretty. When we headed out to shoot it started to rain and was cold. But Jennifer was a trooper and posed in the rain and sleet. She did quite well if I do say so myself.

Annual Halloween Photoshoot

The ghosts of all things past parade, Emerging from the mist and shade That hid them from our gaze, And, full of song and ringing mirth, In one glad moment of rebirth, And again they walk the ways of earth As in the ancient days.

My best friend Tiffany is one of my very first ToughLove models. She rocks an eccentric look, with a killer smile, and is always willing to go the distance for an excellent shot. Tiffany also puts on her best game face and poses for a before picture that most of my models cower away from.

Tiffanys been gone for roughly 8 months and has finally moved home. So what else do we do other than toss some highlights in her hair, give it a trim , then do her up right with a mini photoshoot!
Tiffanys Before Picture " If your gonna take one do it now because I don't think I can be any more of a mess than I am now".

Studio Portraits

Nat and I put together a studio day at WCC so I could show off my makeup skills and so she could work on her lighting project. I also used it as a chance to display a dress that didn't quite make it to my runway back in June.
The dress is just a fun cotton material dress.

These are my photos.

We're All Mad Here.....

For awhile now I have been discussing details for an Alice in Wonderland reinactment photoshoot. More highfashion and less animation. But instead I got a lovely mix of the two. With big hair and flashy colors, real belly laughs and genuine smiles. It was a lovely shoot minus the mesquitoes.

*Natalie Jones was also a co-photographer on this shoot but her photos are not shown.

In autumn when the trees are brown, The little leaves come tumbling down

Today started out rainy and cold. Then after I finished with their hair and makeup the sunshine came out and we were ready to shoot. This was my first time meeting the two friends/ co-workers, Bronwyn and Aimee, but hopefully it will not be the last. I had a blast preping them for the shoot and making sure their different personalities shown through in their pictures. Here are the first six that I have edited.
