Prom Makeup & Hair

As I stepped out of the car to meet my client, I was greeted with a smile and energy that made us click right away.  We spent hours together talking about various aspects of life.  She was such a sweetheart to work with.

  After much discussion on what look would best suit her for her prom, we decided kept her makeup fairly simple and decided to put together a half up do with a bow and loose curls to complement her cute pink dress with black lace.

Bridal Tea Party Themed Shoot with Heather Brodersen, Josh Guido, and Retrospect Images

“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!” - Peter Pan

Months ago, Ginny Silver from Retrospect Images came to me with the idea of having a bridal tea party themed shoot.  At first, I wasn't sure what she envisioned, but I am truly happy that I took part in this fun-filled collaboration with her! Not only is she always full of spunk and smiles, she has such a creative mind.  We worked together on this collaboration with beautiful model, Heather Brodersen, and her boyfriend, Josh Guido.  With two wardrobe changes, I created two different hairstyles for Heather, one with loose curls and another with an updo.  The headpieces and bouquets are made by Ginny herself and can be purchased at her etsy store:

Traditional Vietnamese Dress (Ao Dai) Collaboration with Y-Nhy Duong & Bao Duong

“Some elements are specific to being Vietnamese and some are universal, but the message is that it's important that all people have culture. Your history allows you to do better and strive. Knowing your culture empowers your life and allows you to do so much more.”
