“Black Lilium” HUF Magazine, January 2015

Published Editorials

I hope the new year is settling in well for you and that you had a flawless holiday.

What a better way to ring in the new year than with a newly published editorial!

We had the opportunity to work with Kelly Gillespie (courtesy of The Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas, Texas) on this project.

The set and styling were very minimal as to evoke clean lines and and sense of bareness. The emotion is a bit more somber and pensive as the winter approaches.  A human left to fend to the elements.  During this photo session,  Kelly magnificently channeled a sense of solitude and minimalism to enhance the clothing styled by Jamie Gorden of Seaminx Managament.

Sooty black, gritty grays, and blown out platinum was our palette for the day so I decided to magnify that by utilizing texture in the hair to create contrast.


Generously applying Privé Volumizing Dry Shampoo at the root and blowdrying it as I massaged it in created a “padded” texture for the texture.


The hair was then lightly backcombed and sprayed with Privé Finishing Texture Spray to create an airy hold. I love this hair spray because it allows you to control and manipulate the hair without becoming sticky or flakey. Plus the sense is addictive!

The skin was hydrated and primed with Chantecaille Anti Glycation Primer for a flawless and barely there look.


The Dior 5 COULEURS COUTURE COLOURS & EFFECTS EYESHADOW PALETTE in 30 Montaigne was used to create contour and highlight since black and white photography was going to be used.


Enjoy the rest of the series. Happy 2015!

FASHION FLASHBACK FRIDAY: “A Girl’s Dream” Editorial feature InFluential Magazine


This beautiful magazine cover and fashion editorial came together using the stunning designs of Binzario Couture.  The session, which was photographed as the foliage was turning from fall to winter here in Dallas, Texas, seems to come right out of a fairytale.

The hair and makeup by Walter Fuentes showcased gentle washes of rose and bordeaux stains on the cheeks and lips.  The skin was left with a satin finish and highlighted with pearlescent and gold tones using NARS Highlighter in Albatross and the Foreplay Palette.  Faux elbow length gloves were handpainted in White Acrylic Paint by MAC to add a twist on a traditional element.

The hair was set with a 3/4″ curling wand alternating directions of curls to create maximum texture.  The hair was then finger raked and arranged organically as to conserve the ringlets.  The shot of her by the water inspired me to make a headpiece of white feathers to simulate a White Swan.  The hair for the shot of the dark blush gown was brushed out completely with a Mason Pearson and finger backcombed.
