Sinfully Sweet

   Makeup artist Dianna Quagenti and I have been wanting to work together for a while now and our schedules finally allowed a little play time! Together with Model Orla Roche from Maggie we did a shoot around the idea of being consumed and obsessed with sugar. They are definitely some of the most colorful photos I have taken so far and I'm loving it!

My shot sketches, mood board,  and sweet props for the shoot!

So much sugar shouldn't be legal!

Dianna Quagenti skillfully applies cookie frosting to Orla's eyebrows, yummy!

Orla's fantastical sprinkle eyelashes!
   Ps: I had to hand separate every color sprinkle we used! I felt like I was running some kind of science experiment and collecting specimens!

My Studio

So pretty much since we moved into our apartment we have been in a constant state of remodeling. I have to truly thank every model, stylist, makeup artist and hairstylist that has dealt with my digs before they were up to par! But amidst the blood, sweat, and tears (and oh yes there has been plenty of all three) the apartment is finally starting to take shape, but specifically my studio if finally becoming a comfortable work space!

Here are a few photos I took of my studio after a shoot on saturday, its not completely finished but I'm so happy with how far it's come!

I'll post some more photos as I finish the last details. Let me know what you guys think!!
