So there are times when impromptu happens. Spur of the moment occurs.
I had set up a shoot with Jackie, and reached out to J Autrey Cosmetics to do the make up. I plan on having a makeup artist on hand for model shoots if needed and he is one of the ones that I will be using.
Well the day of the shoot it was raining and overcast and so we decided to scrap the shoot for another day but we still wanted to meet up and game plan, brain storm. Of course when we meet up the rain had stopped and the sun was out. We decided to just go ahead and do a trial run with makeup just for fun.
While Jackie was not dressed for a shoot I decided to snap a couple of photos anyway and I love the way they turned out!
I cannot wait to do the actual shoot!
I have worked with Jackie before and I absolutely adore her! The camera loves her and she is a blast to work with! True model potential!
Thank you so much Juan for the makeup magic! This is just the beginning my friend!(next time I will hook my camera up inside and actually photograph the makeup artist at work)
On Saturday March 25 select businesses in the downtown Grand Rapids area got creative and put on a live mannequin display in their window in an event called Downtown Live.
I had so much fun photographing I Got Face‘s entry and watching all the hard word and creativity that goes into an event like this.
The team that put together I Got Face’s store front won best makeup and that was very exciting! Congrats to you all!
One of the many rewards to being a photographer is being able to watch the little ones you shoot grow up.
I have done quite a few shoots with Caius and am honored to have been able to document and create memories for him and his wonderful mother Latesha since he was a newborn.
This three year old has such a big, fun personality. An absolute joy to be around!
It was such a pleasure to photograph this young aspiring teen model! Such a beauty! I see her going far in whatever it is she pursues and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful girl!!!
I always love collaborating with the lovely Latesha Lipscomb owner of I Got Face Cosmetic Concierge. This time was no exception. It was such a moving and wonderful experience being able to photograph this single father and his children. It is not every day you see a single dad step up the way he has. Kudos to him and all the other single dads out there taking care of their children!! You deserve so much more credit and recognition than what you get!!
last summer I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Tonya.
she wanted to update her portfolio and asked me to be the photographer. considering she has worked with some of the big names here in Grand Rapids I was honored. I loved working with her! It is always fun working with family and the fact that she is very professional made it all that much better.
