The Outstanding Kyle Goldie Wednesday, Jul 21 2010 

If you know me well, you will know I oft times lament about the lack of really strong photographers here in Portland. Now, Portland has a lot of photographers. It has a lot of good photographers. It has a handful of great photographers but that handful is small and I’ve shot with most of them. I was really excited to get a chance to work with Mr. Kyle Goldie.

Kyle is a young newer photographer but his work is simply outstanding. I have watched his work for the last few years and have waited, not so patiently sometimes, for my chance to work with him. His images are stellar and very very strong. 🙂 A model by the name of Lola contacted me via referral from Kyle to do hair and makeup for a shoot they were doing. I jumped at it. It meant loading up at dawn thirty to go to Seattle but I was excited!!! 🙂

Here are some images…

I’m looking toward working with him on future projects. My book would definitely love some Kyle Goldie beauty shots! And Fitness! And Men… and swimsuit… and beach. 😉

Glamorous model and makeup Wednesday, Jun 2 2010 

I finally got some images from a shoot I did a few months ago. I was excited to work with photographer Dustin Rowley and one of my favorite models, Morayma. We had styling done by the owner of the Gilded Closet and there was a hair stylist there which I always appreciate. 🙂

I had fun with this shoot as I got to play and do a little bit more glamorous makeup.   I tend to only get to do beauty makeup so I always appreciate the chance to stretch myself and do something new or different.

Here are a few shots…

A few of these will be used in a charity event for Wyden and Kennedy in July. I’m pretty excited to be featured in that!

A 2nd shoot – more beauty – was just done and images are forthcoming!!!!

Orange tile and fox fur Thursday, Apr 8 2010 

Here are the remaining looks from my shoot with Brandon Witzel. Miss Megan who is now modeling all over China was a really good sport for this last location as it was a covert little public restroom. I walked in and was afraid to touch anything and here was Megan leaning back against the walls, sitting on the floor, etc. Modeling is a hard job!!! 🙂

Special thanks to Kira Pinski for her outstanding hair styling and for supplying the fox fur! It added a certain crazy element and it made me smile!

Black Eyes Black Lips Wednesday, Apr 7 2010 

The first part of the shoot with Brandon Witzel was with Miss Megan in pointe shoes and a nice dress, we thought we’d dirty her up for 2nd half of the shoot.  From this part of the shoots conception through its execution, the concept changed quite a bit.  The final results were not what I had intended but there were some great shots!!!

Joel Bechtolt the best web designer in Portland! Friday, Mar 19 2010 

A year and a half ago I decided I needed a new web site. My Blush site had been made by some clever kids at Cal but with all the changes I was making with my company, I thought it needed a new “face.”

I had worked with a web guy briefly during my time at an agency and I had remembered how helpful and nice the guy was. I had his card buried somewhere in my desk and went on a hunt to find it again. Luckily it was readily available…. Joel Bechtolt was his name. (macpdx@gmail.com)

Joel Bechtolt Blog

I contacted Joel and we begun discussing ideas for both sites. I ended up only being able to change one site but I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED what Joel did. He created the perfect web site for Blush Premier Makeup Artists. The intro video is beautiful! 🙂

The best part… Joel spent a better part of an afternoon training me on how to be able to make changes on my own site. That was worth every penny I spent plus some! I could now add, delete, rearrange, and change content without having to contact a designer and then wait.

The next best part… Joel has been available EVERY time I have had a question or concern or a glitch or simple user error on my web site. I needed to make a big change today and I was struggling with it. I emailed him and he tried to walk a very computer unsavvy girl through the process and ended up having me stop by so that he could do it like 2 seconds. He’s a dream to work with and I can’t imagine a better web designer in Portland.

If anyone needs a new web site or a spruce up, Joel Bechtolt is the way to go. He’s simply amazing and incredible to work with!!!

Kyle Goldie, Bronze Body Paint, and a day to remember… Friday, Mar 5 2010 

I went up to Seattle a few weeks ago to work with photographer Kyle Goldie.  I had only been bugging him to work together for 6+ months and I was excited to finally have the opportunity to make it happen.  🙂

Kyle decided on doing a body shoot so we picked a model, I purchased a bunch of bronze body paint, we loaded up and trekked North for a day of fun and photos.  The body paint was a Mehron product and was better than the Kryolan I had purchased a few days earlier.  It was thicker but it also dried faster.  The benefits is that is takes less time and you don’t have to do layers.  The bad part is that it dries fast and can get streaky and its really hard to do a 2nd layer as the first layer lifts off.

We had a few surprises and setback but I think we got a couple of good shots…
