Last weekend I was hanging out with a friend and randomly decided to Alviso, which once had a real marina but now there are just a bunch of abandoned buildings. Quite a bit of water dried up around there, so these docks are just in the middle of some soggy, marsh-like grass. I can't wait to do a shoot here! And yeah I know everyone does a shoot in Alviso if you're from this area but I don't care.
I'm leaving to Egypt in about a month! I am super stoked but I want to get some more photoshoots in before I go because I won't be able to do any there and then I'm just going to come home ACHING. I have a confirmed shoot this coming Thursday and an unconfirmed one the day after that. I would like to get one more 4/5 change editorial styled shoot in before I go as well but I still trying to see if that is feasible. Ramadan is approaching and I'll be fasting, which will make it difficult to shoot.
I also am in the pre-planning stages for a high fashion shoot (in alviso) when I come back. It'll be my second time working with a stylist (the very talented Leanne) and my first working with both a make up artist and hair stylist - they're both new talent I found recently. Well, Sarah, the make up artist, found me, and I found Amburlee. Things are still very tentative. It just depends on when Leanne comes from Vancouver. As I keep shooting more changes with more and more complicated looks, I am starting to feel like the stylist is even more important than the model! I seriously have more difficulty finding a good, reliable stylist then I do finding models.
I'm also super excited to be doing some shoot with interesting make-up again. It feels like I have been shooting make up that is actually wearable since my Queen's Daughter shoot with Hannah. But this is FASHION! Make up should be ridiculous! So with that, here are a few make up looks I have stumbled across recently that I am just dying to try out with my own models.

Aren't they all so fabulous?
