Short and sweet tonight....I had a photo shoot today at the studio. The GLAM SQUAD(Fred-photographer, AyakaLynn-female model, Dominque-male model, Ryan-2nd photographer, and myself on makeup/hair) got together and we did the damn thing. We were suppose to have Courtney on board to do hair again but she backed out the morning of to say she had to go to church on Wednesday morning. Not everybody is hungry...and the show went on without any problems and we stayed on time for the second shoot...sweet.
Ayaka came over early so that I go do her hair. Because she wanted length for the second half of the day I had to put extensions in her hair to cover her breast since she wanted to be topless for the last scene. So after I got the hair in I started on the makeup but I really wasn't to sure of what I wanted to do with the makeup because the guys from Jerk & Jon Couture didn't make it in just yet with the clothing. I have never worked with them so I wasn't sure what to expect with clothing so I was already working plan B in my head. Looking at what Ayaka brought with her and what I had in my closet at the studio. I always bring all of my bling pieces because I love BLING. The guys finally arrived and they were actually really cool and easy to work with. Some of their pieces to me is very close to ED HARDY collection with crystals. That's the best way to descriptive it to you.
Fred arrived around 12 noon and Dominque was running a little late but we managed to stay on schedule. Ya'll that little boy is a cutie. If you would have seen the pics that he showed us of what he use to look like in high school you would not believe that he had that kind of potential. So now when girls compliment him he don't know how to accept it. He actually think they are fucking with him because all of his life he was so unattractive. He really did a makeover on his on self. He will make a perfect boyfriend if anyone is looking but ya'll can't ruin this boy...ok!!!!
We go to the park to do the shoot. Fred left before us to set up and he was so cute. He had chilled drinks for us and a changing room for the models to change in. We had to hurry cuz it looked like it was going to rain but it actually didn't.
Baby girl is amazing when the camera comes on. I love how she can work crazy poses and not afraid to try different things. I love working with her so much.
We stop working at 3pm to head back to the studio to get ready for the second photo shoot with Ryan at 4pm. Now Ryan ran a little late so we played around a little taking silly pictures. So I took the opportunity to do some stuff for my girl Thais Mills. The models and I had taking promo pics of her bookmarks for her company. Finally, Ryan came and we were back to work. Because it was to dark and late to go on location we just did the shoot in the back of the studio. Perfect...but the bugs were out and ya'll know I don't do bugs well. They really freak me out. So we finished the evening after 10ish and stayed to clean up the studio and put everything back where it belong.
Can't wait to see the finish frames but here are some of the behind the scene pics with my camera. I checked my voice messages and Courtney called around 4pm to see if we still needed her to come by to do hair...Go figure....I'm done.
