A BTS video from our recent session with Victoria Dare. We targeted three distinct looks with lighting changes throughout the session. Make-up by Nataly Fosberry and hair by Paige McClure. Victoria’s full image gallery can be found here.
We recently shot a new face in the studio and mixed in some editorial looks too. Our model was April Lynn Neuman and “M.U.A.H by Taryn” supported us with looks. You can find our BTS video here.
Every once in a while, we’ll have one of those photo sessions where we get a broad spectrum of looks from our model and make-up artist. Our session with model Marissa P. and make-up artist Jazzmene was one of those sessions. We started off with a girl-next-door nude make-up look (with a hair fan thrown in for good measure). From there we moved to a high key beauty look with Marissa’s hair pulled back and tight to her head. Then the hair came back down and we added a men’s white dress shirt with two different lighting scenarios. Gorgeous natural North light and a studio set-up. From there a ballerina sequence (Marissa was a dancer) again shot first in natural North light then with a different studio light configuration. Rounding for home, we had Marissa in several gowns as we shot a Hollywood 30’s/40’s noir look, finished in both color and b&w. Our last look almost didn’t happen as we intended on shooting this look but had forgotten to include it and the participants had all packed up and were leaving when we remembered. We had a beautiful blue scarf, which Marissa wrapped around her head and we placed her against a jet black felt in front of the natural light we have streaming into the studio.
Here’s a behind the scenes video from our recent session with Scarlet. We had fantastic hair & make-up support from “CJ” Jetphukthai. This was the first time I had worked with CJ and I was very pleased with the results we achieved. That’s Scarlet’s mother you see hovering in the background. It was a real family affair! This was only Scarlet’s second attempt at modeling. She was a little nervous at first, but by halfway through the session she loosened up and started having fun.

We had a great studio session with a new model today. Susanne came down from Los Angeles to shoot a beauty concept. We had fantastic support from a new make-up artist – Jessie Marie Bealer. I’ve just started post on the images, but the full gallery can be found here. Here’s a teaser image. We’ll be adding to the gallery throughout the week. Stay tuned…
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time with model Lynn Sanchez in the studio. Lynn is a make-up artist who wanted to get some images of herself. This was more of a test shoot as we had never worked together before. Lynn’s session was a bit different from my previous shoots in as much of her alternative type look. The goal of this shoot, (besides getting to know each other) was to explore different looks we could get with minimal wardrobe & make-up investment. Additionally, I wanted to contrast natural light against my studio light set-ups.
At this writing, I’m still running post on these images, but you can see our work at her gallery here.
