Fashion Portrait - Lauren Staub Pt. 1 | Emily McGonigle Photograph


It's been a little while since I've posted, but that's because I've been very busy with a bunch of things, including some new shoots! One of those is a shoot I recently did with the ever lovely Lauren Staub, and the fabulous Ana Liza Witham!

We did two looks during this shoot, but each was so drastically different, that I felt like they deserved their own posts.

The first look was playing off a color theme (I bet you'll never guess what it is). We worked at building the concept, finding the wardrobe, and then finally pulling everything together with hair and makeup. Originally we thought about using a pink wig to add a different color in, but ultimately decided that Lauren's red hair gave us just the splash of non-purple that we needed.


But... I mean, we COULDN'T just let that awesome pink wig go to waste... So enters Matthew Simmons, wig model extraordinaire, to the rescue!


I mean, just look at the way he works that wig. Incredible!

But enough about him... Back to Lauren. 

Take a look at the rest of the series from her first look. I call it... uh... Lovely... Lavendar... Lauren? It's a working title...
