I hit a record number of downloads with this shoot- 120! Amber of DeJoy Photography never disappoints. She photographs my makeup work so well. Oh yea, and baby goats.
I am honestly happy with 1-5 photos from a shoot that are portfolio- meaning they are close enough to showcase my makeup artistry. Most of the time I download around 20, which makes me super happy. But this last shoot with Amber hit an all time record of 120!
Just as I thought the images couldn't be better, they were! Or there was another scene. Or a different dress.
And what's even better is when the models are a real couple and you can see their love so vividly! Shannon and Mike did not disappoint with their playful, laid back, and sultry looks. It is clear they know what to do in front of a camera. But my most favorite photos of them were the playful ones where he's messing up her hair or they're both opened mouth, head back laughing.
You're all about to see these images everywhere. Website home page. Business cards. Hello new brand photos!
Shan had mentioned her skin being dry despite any super hydrating products she had tried, but I think we hit the jackpot for her with Charlotte Tilburry's Magic Cream and Dior's Airflash Foundation. They have been a winning combo for me lately. I haven't even been using primer or highlighter on a lot of clients. The Magic Cream hydrates the skin, giving it a natural glow while making the Airflash just melt into the skin.
Amber had asked me if we could go a bit darker on the eyes. So I started by lining upper and lower lash lines and water lines with the NARs long-wear black pencil liner. I then used my finger to apply the bronze shadow from Charlotte Tilbury's Instant Eye Palette and blended out the edges with a mauvey tone shadow. And lashes. Lots of lashes. Sonia Roselli Beauty's short Drop Lashes were perfect to add drama to her lashes which were primed with Dior Lash Maximizer and Buxom waterproof mascara.
But wait, there's more. Whenever Epiphany Boutique, Carmel is involved, you KNOW those dresses are going to be incredible. Christine always delivers with her gorgeous dresses AND stunning suits. Can I get remarried just to wear one of her dresses please?
With that said, enjoy all the fabulous images!!!
