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! 🙂

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)

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!!!

Terri Lodge of Blush Premier on Nationally Televised Better TV Friday, Mar 12 2010 

So, a year and half ago (assuming by the hair cut I’m sporting), my friend and tv personality Nicolle Camarata asked me to do another segment for nationally televised Better TV. Nicolle had a local spot on the show and she wanted to show viewers a new way of doing eye makeup for going out. I loved how she wanted to celebrate the silver screen icons with their “bedroom eyes” so we focused on more of a soft smoky eye.

Nicolle and I always had so much fun doing these segments together. I was sad to hear that Better was cutting costs and moving the show to NY only.

Today Nicolle surprised me by posting this on my facebook wall. I was delighted since I don’t have any of the 3 segments on disc. Yay!!! 🙂

Enjoy “Bedroom Eyes”!

Oracle and a rad music video Tuesday, Mar 9 2010 

I got the pleasure of working on another music video a month or so ago. It was for a band called Oracle. I had never Orianna Hermann but she is a good friend of mine, actress Katie O’Grady. James Westby was going to be directing Oracle’s music video and @Large video’s Heather Harlow and Katie O’Grady were producing the video. An all star cast destined for greatness… I had to do it! 😉

Drumroll please… here is Oracle’s video for wake!

I’m delighted with how it turned out. I used hair extensions to add length and fullness and a form for the additional volume on the top of her head. I loved that she gave me complete freedom on her eye makeup! 🙂
