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. 😉

I found this lovely little tidbit sitting in my in box tonight! Very fun!

A few months back I did a shoot with Brandon Witzel, outstanding clothing designer Claire la Faye, very talented hair stylist Kira Pinski, gifted clothing stylist Rebecca Westby, and model Sarah Schroeder from OMM.

I added a few of the images to my portfolio and to my web site but hadn’t seen or heard much from it since. In fact, I had forgotten about the images. Tonight I find one of the images on Glamour Magazine’s online site…advertising Claire la Faye’s designs. Very cool. See link below! 🙂

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!!!!

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. 🙂

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!!!

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!!!!

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 on Twitter
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…

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…

New video for Amai Unmei Wednesday, Feb 17 2010 

My friend owns a boutique here in Portland called Amai Unmei. It is a high end, upscale store featuring posh coats and divine dresses. 🙂 She really does have amazing stuff! I love it so much that I’ve purchased a beautiful fuschia and orange silk coat, a brown dress, and 2 blouses. Did I mention I love her stuff??? 🙂

Recently, Allison contacted me asking me to do hair and makeup for her upcoming pre-fall advertisting reel. I jumped at it!

Check it out…
