An Off White Seattle

21 Apr

Just wanted to give a quick thanks and a shout out to Megan Bingham at Off White Makeup and Beauty for her recent blog post on my work with her and her company. I’ve been working with Megan at Off White since  last spring doing makeup and hair for weddings throughout the greater Seattle area and the experience has been awesome. Megan is excellent at what she does, and I really admire her entrepreneurial spirit. Specializing in airbrush makeup we work to make each and every bride look and feel beautiful for their  special day. Each wedding party is so unique; I’ve had a chance to travel and see some great places and meet a lot of different people, each with their own special story.

I can’t wait to get going again this wedding season with Megan. If you want a guarantee you’ll feel beautiful on your wedding day, you know who to call!

I want to make art for the rest of my life.

I can’t believe this was over three years ago already…

From the Vault…

3 Aug

Last week I went to visit good friend and photographer Sean Watson to catch up and peruse some of his photography.
Not too long ago, my external hard drive for my laptop crashed, and although I was able to recover most of my files, many of my photos were unfortunately lost for good.

Sean and I pulled some great images from our past photo shoots together. Some older, some newer, so I thought I would share a few…


Here’s to many more years of shooting with Sean. 🙂

POTD: 7.15.10

15 Jul

Today is my boyfriend Jason and I’s 9 month anniversary.

Of course the POTD would be something related to that…

This is one of the first photos we took together back in October.  My hair was so long!

When Delirium Sets In

14 May

This past couple of weeks have been especially busy.

On top of photo shoots, working, and the every day hustle, my boyfriend and I recently moved in to a new apartment just blocks from the ever-exciting Broadway on Capitol Hill. Going on an average of about 3 hours of sleep a night, we moved all of our junk into our new place and are finally settling in.

Needless to say, I’m exhausted, but so glad for the weekend.

Last time I posted, I was discussing my most recent creative project with friend Sean Watson, we had one shoot under our belt then, and now we’re up to three and a half (half because we had a sick model and had to send her home). Things are really getting rolling, and the creative juices are flowing. I’m tired, but so very excited for the direction this project is going. Here’s a most recent sneak peek of what Sean and I did with model Taylor Hook last week, I think this image is just beautiful.


Taylor is half African-American, and Caucasian, and has a gorgeous facial structure. I wanted to create a greek-goddess look with her so pulled her hair up loosely and inserted white origami lilies into her hair. Then I tore up sheets of plain muslin to create the ragged look of the fabric and draped it around her. For make-up I lightened her skin and added a golden shimmer to it as well as a light dusting of  coral color to her cheeks, the same coral for her lips and gold cream shadow for her eyes.

This is by far one of the most beautiful set of images I’ve had the pleasure to help create, and I’m so happy with how this shoot turned out.

I can’t wait to do even more, keep tuned for more images and sneak peeks during the next two weeks!

P.S.

In other news, I’ll be heading over to Ouch My Eye Gallery in SoDo tonight at 7 for the STIFF premiere of the short film I worked on called Teething, as well as several other shorts. You can find more info on it here! See you there?
