Beauty Shoot

Photos by Joe Lee

A few months ago I got to work with a great team to do a spring inspired beauty editorial shoot. The photographer we worked with, Joe Lee, is amazing and based in Oakland, you can view his portfolio here. We also worked with a makeup artist/hairstylist, Kris Jung, as well who is equally as talented and beyond sweet!  You can view her portfolio here,  she does makeup and hair for weddings and events and is very good.  

I have never done modeling like this before and I had no idea what to expect but it was really fun and a surprising amount of work! This shoot took about 5 hours because each of us had to get out hair and makeup done two different times. I actually learned a lot from this in terms of gaining experience for posing for fashion/lifestyle shoots for my blog. It was interesting because these head shots were so close and detailed so every single movement; a tilt of your shoulder or chin, closing your eyes, or even a slight move of your head, would change the entire shot. I learned that small movements can make a huge difference in making a pose look and feel more natural on camera. 

Let me know what you guys think! I am excited to be doing some brand collaborations in the next few weeks as well as launching my youtube channel, so stay tuned for much more to come!
