My recent collaboration with stylist Britt Lavoi and makeup artist Jamie Dorman has just been published in Lucy’s Magazine. We chose to work with a pastel color pallet. I created a set design using pink and blue seamless paper and painted cubes. The colors play off each other very well. We selected to work with model Mal Dolgan from MC2 New York. Mal is beautiful, fun and really captured the essence of our playful concept.
I am proud to share the cover and editorial story I photographed for InWeston Magazine. The editor requested I produce a fashion swimwear editorial for their summer issue. Immediately I spoke to stylist Ikponmwosa Edorisiagbon who was excited to help out with the project. I was very pleased that model Vanessa Jorge from Major Model Management, New York was available to shoot. I have worked with Vanessa on commercial projects and was looking forward to shooting fun work with her. She is a stunning beauty and a lovely person. The team was complete with talented Emi Koizumi doing a beautiful job with hair and makeup.
The shoot was very easy and smooth. We shot in studio. Everyone was on point!
Here are the images that were published.
Shot these beauties for fashion editorial to be published in the October/November issue of Today’s Black Women magazine. Due to the image embargo I cannot show any of the fashion looks. After the shoot I had the models stand by my studio window and took some natural light portraits.
I am very pleased to share images from a fashion editorial I shot in New York City for the Paris based magazine Prestige International. The lovely model is Lexa from the agency Muse NYC. The fashion stylist was Aaron R. Tucker, make up by Aeriel D’Andrea using M.A.C., and hair by Arturo Swayze. We shot the job in the old Bisazza Showroom in Soho, NY. Recently the showroom relocated to an amazing space on W. 20th St. overlooking the Highline. I am very pleased with the images. I will share one today and will continue to post them over the next week.
Over the weekend I shot a fashion editorial for Today’s Black Woman magazine. My dear friend Ionia Dunn Lee Cisse styled the models, Aeriel D’Andrea did makeup, and Tiffany Coates provided hair styling.
I can’t share the fashion images until after the photos publish in the August/September 2015 issue. However I had our girl from Red NYC stand by the window in her own clothes and shot a few images. Looking forward to sharing the editorial in a few months!
Our model wants to know, straight or natural? I am a sucker for natural hair!
Model Elena Kantaria from Women Management New York is stunning! Shot in my NYC studio Elena is styled by Ursula Agurto, hair by Mako Iijima of Cocoro Salon, NYC, makeup by Chris Aria (visiting from Sydney), and manicurist Arielle Vilmont.
We had a wonderful time shooting the story. I love Elena’s expressiveness and the texture of the hair. Below are a couple of shots from the editorial, please see the magazine online to view the story in full!
I trust you had a wonderful 2014 and wishing you a 2015 full of joy and bling!
Here are some behind the scenes photos from a beauty editorial I shot Sunday for Fashion Reverie Magazine.
The theme was a nail slumber party. The editor was looking to shoot in a hotel room. Thinking that the location would not look authentic enough, I offered my guest bedroom. Shooting in my house is always a mixed bag… I like not having to travel to a location but having your home turned upside down for a day can be a drag. Thankfully the shoot was low impact, the team was great, and we are all very excited about the images we created. Love to Tiri (Q Models), Violetta (Q Models) and Madison Massey (Major Model Management) as well as T.Cooper – hair and makeup, and Angi Wingle of CND (nails).
Here are some behind the scenes photos. Can’t wait to share the images we created!
