Beauty with Quirine from New York Models

Two weeks I worked with Dutch beauty Quirine Engel from New York Models. The concept was natural makeup and loose hair.  I posted some behind the scenes photos here: BTS.

I am super happy with the results.  Makeup by Lizzie Lerman using Nars Cosmetics, hair by Ayato Yokojima using Milbon products.

Beauty photography in my NYC studio

Yesterday I took a day to shoot a test in studio.  Booked the stunning Dutch beauty Quirine Engel from New York Models.  Lizzie Lerman did her makeup and Ayato Yokojima did hair.  Lizzie was referred to me by Jillian of Exclusive Artist Management.  I have been working with Ayato for years.  We started very clean and built the makeup gradually, but never too heavy.  Quirine was a pleasure to work with.  I am very happy with the photos.  Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos.  I will post the finished images once they have been selected and retouched.

Monday I will be shooting a lookbook for a Korean designer, Tuesday I am coordinating a shoot for Flashes of Hope… can’t wait for the weekend to be over so I can get back to work!
