Model Features

There is powerful beauty in simplicity. In rawness and barely-there nuances. It attracts light and shows the power within and the vulnerability of one’s body.

This is the route we chose when photographing Alencia Lewis courtesy of The Campbell Agency.

I customized a beauty look with highly moisturized skin, foundation warmed up with my fingers and pressed into the skin, and simple hair.

Creme stick foundations in Golden Honey, Walnut, Mahogany,  and Espresso by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics were seamlessly blended for a sculpted effect.

The skin on the rest of the body was moisturized by combining Josie Maran Argan Oil, African Glycerin, and gold loose eyeshadow.

I hope you enjoy this series!

I recently had the pleasure of working with this lovely young lady on a series including beauty, fashion, and a little attitude.

As an ode to the ending summer, we decided to fabricate a session showcasing breezy and airy fashion provided by Tor Matthey.  The clean and simplistic lines are powerful in each shot.  The have a touch of minimalism and feminism all mixed into one.

The subtle movements that Cadence exuded were perfect and made her seem effortless in such structured clothing. To complement the color palette, I utilized white and mint as my focal points.  I used MAC Chromaline Gel/Cream Liner in Pure White and an angled liner brush.

As a highlight and pop, I used Seafoam Green from Dior’s 5 Coulers Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Jardin.

To keep the beauty story cohesive and on trend, I used Maybelline’s Color Show Nail Lacquer in Green With Envy.

Cadence has beautiful undercut that required minimal product. In the slides that have more texture, I used Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray which has sea salt for beautiful lived in beachy texture.  On the smoother slides, I misted the hair with water and groomed it with a dime sized amount of Brilliantine by Bumble and Bumble for shine and structure.

I am anxious for fall and with this session we start bidding adieu to summer. I hope you enjoy this set as much as I do!

One of the biggest trends in fashion, specifically beauty, has been pastel tones. Whether lavender or soft mint is used in the hair or in accessories,  it’s a fun and sporty trend courtesy of the mod revival current in fashion.

We worked with Kasey (who just got back from a modeling tour in South Korea). With bright and cheerful features, I decided to add quick and fun pops of pastel hues mixed from the Makeup Forever Flash Color Palette.

Enjoy!

Simple. Clean. Emotional. Pensive.

These are all emotions that Grant delivered during our recent photo session with Samantha Collie. While in Dallas, Grant joined us on set to create one of my favorite male beauty sets ever. A bit Southern gentleman, a little debonair, a little mischievous,  Grant transitioned through different characters.

Grant has perfect skin that just called for a whisper of moisture. I used Jack Black Double Duty Moisturizer with SPF 20 since we where photographing him outside.

image

A bit of tinted moisturizer was buffed onto the skin to even out his tone. I used LAB Series BB Tinted Moisturizer.

Men, it is NOT makeup. I repeat. It is not makeup.  I love this product because it has additional SPF, moisturizes, and has a discreet tint that unifies the tones on the face.

image

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray was misted through the hair and roughly dried with a blow dryer to provide an easy wavy texture.

Change your hairstyle as well by using a different product as seen on Grant.  For a more distressed look, I layered a bit of MITCH by Paul Mitchell Reformer Paste. A little goes a long way with this matte product.  I use it myself when I want a no-shine finish with soft hold.

image

image

Lastly, try a modern and chic side part. It is dapper for a night on the town or for a formal event. I used Bumble and Bumble Bb Gel and a fine toothed comb.

Enjoy the rest of this great series!

What do you get when you have one free hour, creativity,  an awesome team and a camera? THIS!

Inspired by fantasy, watercolors, and elements, we created a simple set of images that reaffirmed our affinity towards the exotic.

Gentle pastels, both in mastefully blended makeup, and in a custom lacefront platinum wig met to create our first image. Part fairy,  part goddess, part fantasy, this image is eerie and beautiful.

image

Our second image creates an illusion of a geisha warrior that is caught in mid run. Bold colors that signify strength, love and passion all meet to create this stunning image. Hand colored wefts using Paul Mitchell Ink Works in Orange, Red, Yellow and Black add drama to the look.

Enjoy!

I will always have an affinity for redheads. They’re striking, beautiful,  and stunning. Every single one. Here is a session photographed by Jorge Rivas in which NARS BB Cream was used to show supple youthful skin.

NARS Multiple in Laos was used on the lips, cheeks, and eyes.  I’m obsessed with their products!

The shoot began with a blowout and was changed into different looks during the session.

Enjoy!
