On February 5, 2011, Christopher Edmonstone and I collaborated again for a photoshoot, which took place in the model’s 2-storey loft. I did the makeup, provided some jewellery for a few of the shots, and helped with the lighting/reflectors.
I am preparing to send out the first official marketing campaign for the new website www.whoiswindsong.com: 25% off jewellery orders over $100 and 15% off makeup services – but it’s going to be a limited-time offer, and open only to my email subscribers, so I’m encouraging anyone who would like to get in on the action to subscribe now or alternatively email me at email@example.com!
I orchestrated my first photoshoot on March 24, 2010. My model was a co-worker, who has a fair complexion and fine almost stick-straight hair cut into a layered bob.
My original plan for her hair was to create a smooth vintage finger-wave style (somewhat along the lines of Nicole Kidman in The Golden Compass), but when I took out the pins and started combing the hair with my fingers, the resultant look with sassy ‘big-hair’ curls just looked too great to pass up.
In addition to doing the hair and makeup, I added one of my necklaces to complete the look.
I took a few photos myself while we were waiting our turn with the photographers. I think she looks a bit like a 50’s pin-up girl – I wish we had had a martini glass and a long cigarette holder to use as props, but the little bouquet of tulips I made that afternoon were just fine for the original “bridal” theme.
The shoot itself went very well, and although I haven’t seen the photos yet I think they’re going to be great! I can’t wait to see the final results.
