Rainbows!

I love playing with my Dinair Airbrush system. One of the beautiful things about it is that you can use all sorts of colors in it. I have been so happy with it and couldnt wait to practice using it in unconventional ways. Alexa and I went to work and came up with this little creation.

Now… to get all that ribbon off her neck…

Lakeya was in need of some new headshots and Alexa Poletti certainly delivered some good ones! This makes me miss being in Davidson, NC.

Jessica

Wedding makeup! I absolutely love doing weddings because there is something special about being a part of making a bride feel beautiful on the most important day of her life. All eyes are on her and how breathtakingly perfect she looks. So, with that said… Here is a gorgeous portrait that Alexa Poletti took of Jessica on her big day.

I also did her bridesmaids’ makeup too! Such a fun group!

Wig shoot!

Alexa Poletti- the photographer– is now Alexa Poletti- the model. She rocks out wigs.. and lots of them. She lives in DC now but when she was here acting on One Tree Hill, we did a little late night shoot for Gothic Lolita Wigs. I love doing shoots where I get to play and be creative with over the top makeup.

 Then we changed up the hair and makeup for another round.

Go “like” her modeling page on Facebook! And why not her photography one too while you’re at it?

LA Headshots

Ah long lost photoshoot that Jim Trice and I did when we were in LA.

Darien wanted some very natural looking new headshots to update her portfolio.

FotoExposo

I had the great opportunity to work with photographer Brett Martin and his beautiful model, Yuli. His studio here in Wilmington is the most amazing studios I’ve seen. If you’re looking to get some professional shots done here, definitely check him out.

Yuli was looking for some bright pink lips and a dark smokey eye which looked super sexy and gorgeous on her!

Close up makeup photo- from my iphone! Top notch quality…. yeah….

Its so fun working with new photographers and pretty models 😀
