Cassandra was so much fun to work with! I definitely enjoyed every minute on this shoot. Cassandra and her assistant were the sweetest people and did so much for photographer & good friend of mine, Brittany Berggren and I. We both were super grateful and could not thank them enough for their hospitality. The photos came out beautifully thanks to Brittany, and of course they wouldn't have been possible without the lovely Cassandra! Everything was perfect on this shoot and who would of thought we shot this at a golf course? :)

Tiffany is definitely a model that I enjoyed working with. I had been wanting to shoot with her for a while, so when the opportunity arrived I had to jump on it. She was super nice and had a great face for me to work on! She photographs beautifully and I hope to work with her again very soon.

This photo was shot some time ago but it seemed to have gotten lost in the array of pictures I have. I love the way the makeup came out in this photo and I must give thanks to my good friend Ryan Astamendi for his great skills at capturing this. I also want to thank Codie for having such a beautiful canvas to work on.

It was my first time shooting with Tashia and hopefully it won't be the last. She is such a talented person and has so much going for her. She has a beautiful face, especially her smile. Even with a minimal amount of makeup her face still seems to glow. Thanks to photographer Brittany Berggren for allowing me to be a part of this shoot and creating such great photos.

Meet Loren and Charger, they are one badass team to say the least. I have been wanting to do this shoot for months and was so glad when it finally came time to capture it. Thanks to Loren for being our muse, to Chris for providing us with the amazing Charger, to Brittney Hall for rocking out the hair, and to Kacey Ukanis for being such an awesome photographer. We definitely picked a great location that was the right touch to give this shoot some "pizazz" and the makeup helped too. :)

Stephanie was definitely a pleasure to work with and had such a fun personality. Her eyes are really captivating and that is one thing I love about this photo. Thanks to Brittany Berggren, the photographer, for having me on this shoot. We all worked together well and had a good time, despite the heat.

Cindy had the perfect face for this concept of mine. This shoot was quite simple; no wardrobe or hairstyling needed, which Cindy was perfectly fine with. She definitely nailed this look. I have to also thank Kacey Ukanis, my good friend and photographer, for once again being able to capture my vision and executing it.

Working with Ms. Olivia Jones was such a fun experience, you may have seen her on E! reality TV show, "Candy Girls". She pulled out some pretty creative headphones to shoot with and some incredible moves. All captured by the amazing Ryan Astamendi and hair done by my good friend, Alyssa Gonzalez. Olivia's attitude was super fun and energetic and I am so happy I was able to work with her and create this fun shot with the rest of my team.

Rochelle was a complete doll! We definitely clicked on many levels and she is such a fun girl and has some great things going for her. I had been wanting to work with Rochelle for some time and I am so glad we were able to make it happen thanks to photographer, Jeff Edmonds. This shoot was lots of fun and full of balloons, cupcakes, and smiles.
I really enjoy working with child models. They are always the sweetest little girls and have such great attitudes. Alyssa, on the left, and Dorothy, on the right, were great little models. They had such energy in front of the camera, thanks to photographer Ryan Astamendi, who knew how to bring them out of their shells. The makeup concept was also a breeze....all natural, since the girls had such youthful, beautiful faces.

Giulini was definitely a pleasure to work with and I loved her idea of shooting with her chihuahua, Tiki. He was a great model as well. I had always wanted to shoot someone with an animal and now I have accomplished that. This was a fun shoot to work on, in thanks to the model who was a sweetheart, photographer Ryan Astamendi, and hairstylist Alyssa Gonzalez.

This look was Amanda's idea and I was super excited to be a part of it. I have always wanted to do something like this, makeup that was exotic and fun. I have worked with Amanda in the past and like always, it was an easy job and we had a great time. This was taken by Brittany Berggren, it was my first time working with her and I really admire her work. Everything came out great and I was very pleased with the outcome.

Kandace is also a very good friend of mine and she is a phenomenal model who takes direction well. Her face is every makeup artists' dream, to say the least. This was shot by Kacey Ukanis, once again, and it came out beautifully. We had a blast on this shoot and it is always a pleasure working with Ms. Kandace!

This is my second shoot with Dani and I had been wanting to capture the whole masquerade look for some time now. I turned to photographer Kacey Ukanis to shoot this because I felt she would be able to capture my vision. Dani had the perfect look for this and I am so glad she agreed to be a part of it because it could not have been done without that "face". I had a lot of fun creating this "glimmerati" look and it came out amazing, thanks to my whole team who were a part of bringing it together.
This is Christine and it is my second time working with her. I was able to first work with her when I attended MUD (Make-Up Designory) in 2008 and I was very excited to get the opportunity to work with her again. She is a beautiful model that goes over & beyond and does an outstanding job. For this shoot, the team and I were going for an "Alice in Urbanland" theme, it was one of the most fun shoots I have had the pleasure to work on.
This is Vanessa, it was her first official shoot with photographer Arthur St John, and she did a wonderful job. She has such a great face to work on and her personality shined through. We worked very hard on this shoot and I hope it shows. I wish her the best of luck on her journey and I hope to work with her again soon.
I have always wanted to do a shoot where it focused more on the beauty of the eye. Here I wanted to place rhinestones to add more detail, but still not take away from the makeup and I believe I achieved that well. Denise, the model, was such a good sport and I'm so glad she wanted to be a part of this project. I would love to do another shoot along these lines in the near future.
This was the first shoot I had with Dani who is a very good friend of mine and it was shot once again by Ryan Astamendi. We went for the California girl look and decided to match it up with a natural look that fit her beautifully. This was her first shoot and she definitely came strong. I was surprised at how comfortable she was in front of the camera and how it came so natural to her. She is one very talented girl.
