I love working with new people, and a couple weeks ago I collaborated on a shoot with a whole new creative team. I met the photographer, Waytao Shing, through his girlfriend Kristen, one of my cutest Charm School regulars. Waytao is an amazing music photographer, but we started scheming about creating some really urban, high fashion images and it seemed like the perfect chance to collaborate with the lovely Ana Castro before she moved to Vienna. Ana is an incredibly talented hair stylist, but what really blows me away is her work with wigs.
My girl Christina Svec assisted Ana for this shoot. Here she is wearing one of the wigs while Ana gives it just the right razor-y cut.
Next she blended colors and airbrushed this platinum wig with delicious cotton candy colors.
Our beautiful model Harmony before...
Gorgeous Elena getting all sprayed down.
I'd seen the exquisite make up Ashley Hancock does at Vintage Vivant, but this was our first time working together. She was so sweet and knowledgeable and professional, I've roped her into three projects since then! She's a treasure, and her make up for this shoot was flawless.
See what I mean?
Loved this orange lip with the pink hair.
Here's Waytao and his assistant Sean hard at work.
I was so impressed by both our models and how well everyone worked together.
(love this touch up shot)
That's a wrap!
I can't wait to see the edited photos later this week. Thanks for all your hard work, team, you're the best!
