I'm so excited to share pictures from one of my fave photo shoots I did last year. It was for a promo for a short film. As you know, one of my favorite styles to do is vintage makeup. The shoot director, Nicole, is a purist when it comes to retro anything. I loved the authenticity of the photo shoot. It was a two day shoot with photographer Edaurdo Piotraszewski who flew in all the way from Puerto Rico. He was such a kind man to work with and it was fun to talk to him about makeup!

Nicole was nice enough to let me bring the kids on set with their on-set babysitter, their daddy! Ha! I got to hang out with them in between shots and they got to see up close what I did.

I hope you love the pictures as much as I do!

Photo shoots are definitely one of my fave things to work on. Although I love doing beautiful wedding makeup, Photo shoots give me an outlet to be a little more daring and dramatic. I enjoy the whole process, from hearing the photographer or designer's vision and making it come to life. It's fun to meet new people on set with the same passion to create beautiful photographs.

Here are a few photo shoots I've worked on that have been published.
