Happy Saturday! I hope everyone has faired well this week, and will get a chance to enjoy this weekend (if you haven't started already).
A while ago I posted a behind the scenes blog of my shoot with hair and makeup artist Meko Davis, and model, Lisa Van Atta. While Meko and Lisa both have had the images for a little while, life got busy, and I haven't had a chance to share them with *you* yet. So I wanted to do that today!
Working with both Meko and Lisa was fantastic.
After working with Meko on this session, I ended up hiring her on for a session with one of my senior portrait clients, Sarah Ngo. Once again, she did a fabulous job with Sarah's hair and makeup, and I look forward to hopefully getting more opportunities to work with her in the future!
Lisa was amazing to work with as well, as she was super comfortable in front of the camera and didn't need much direction, although when direction was given, she followed through with it beautifully. She honestly made my job too easy, haha.
The idea for this session was to enable Meko to show off some of her styling skills, so we wanted to keep it super simple. Plain white background, beauty-inspired type shots, hair and makeup focused. The lighting setup was simple, and didn't change much. There were some personal artistic touches made in post on my end, but other than that, everything was pretty straightforward, which is how we wanted it to be.
Lisa told me her favorite was the set with the red lipstick. I think my favorites are a tie between those and the blue-lipped set.
Take a look and judge for yourself which are your favorites, and maybe share with us in the comments below! :)
