Introducing Portland designer Claire La Faye Wednesday, Apr 14 2010 

I was browsing the net a few weeks ago, looking for a designer’s clothes to use that have NOT been used a hundred times over already. I wanted something new… something fresh… something inspired. I love Sarah Seven and her designs but pretty much every makeup artist and photographer has shot her dresses. I didn’t want to be part of the masses.

I saw some of Claire La Faye’s designs and I just had to smile. It was everything I was hoping to find. Her stuff is creative, beautiful, and unique.

I immediately looked her up and found she was a recent transplant from CA and so I wrote her and asked to borrow some of her clothes for an upcoming shoot. Claire was very open and soon I had a photographer and some beautiful models, an amazing hair stylist, and an outstanding wardrobe stylist. It was to be perfect! 🙂 Makeup by me, of course! 😉

Here are a few images from the shoot…

More pictures to follow with beautiful model Sarah Shroeder. 🙂

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!

Beauty En Pointe Sunday, Mar 28 2010 

There is a model in Portland that I have wanted to work with for a few years now. Her name is Megan and rumor had it that Mode International was shipping her off to China for fashion week and she would be gone a big chunk of time. I conversed with some creative peeps and we set up a shoot with her and photographer Brandon Witzel. I have been admiring his work and the softer feel of his images and thought he would be perfect for this shoot with Miss Megan.

He agreed and so amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski and I started dreaming up a shoot concept. We really wanted something to do with ballet so Megan got her pointe shoes, Kira rented a studio, and Megan got a designer dress from Sarah Seven and we were off.

Here are a few of the best images from the studio…

I went for a really simple beauty look. Soft and clean. I wanted her face to blend in and accent the rest of the scene, not dominate the shot.

The next look was more edgy and will be showcased later… 🙂 I love working with a great team!!!!

Advertising Campaign for Bishops Barbershops Wednesday, Feb 24 2010 

A few years ago I met a hair stylist that I think is simply divine. Her name is Julie Ruckman and she was working at Bishops Barbershop as a stylist.

Through our years of working together I was hired to do an ad campaign for Bishops in 2008. As the economy went down, they stopped doing ads for a while so I was excited when they started back up and I was hired for another year of ads.

I met with the Art Director and we brain stormed on photographers and they ended up hiring the outstanding Carl Evans. I knew we were in for great things this time around. 🙂

Bishops likes to use “real” people for their ads so they put out a call for people who were willing to come in and let the stylist do whatever they felt like to get an “original” do. There was some phenomenal hair there. Holly wanted to do 2 shots… a day look and a night look so we were booking it to get all 17 models dressed and changed twice, with both hair and makeup changes. The results have been really cool!!!

Here are a few of the ads so far…

Portland Monthly Friday, Nov 20 2009 

I found out today that an editorial spread I worked on in Sept actually was published in Oct. I had to do some online research before I found the spread. It was an editorial on John Haines, the Executive Director of MercyCorps NW.

Andy Batt was the photographer for the shoot and he always does such a great job. He really captured this guys heart and essence.
