When my makeup artist Noel told me she was going to be visiting the Bay Area again around Christmas time, I knew I had to plan something around her trip. A killer makeup artist, Noel is as cool and she is talented, and her and my stylist-friend, Ashley, are pretty much twins. We settled on the day after Christmas. One of my newest muses, Alex A. with Look SF/Next LA, was on my too-shoot-with-(again) list and agreed to come back from her vacation early for the shoot. Alex has an unrivaled enthusiasm for modeling coupled with a can-do attitude and beautiful eyes. As a result, we’ve actually become friends and I hope to continue shooting her. As I said before, this girl is going to be big!
The changes went quickly, all pulled courtesy of Labels in Walnut Creek. We ended the day with a meal at Buffalo Bill’s, which is now the place we always eat at whenever we shoot in the area.
Naturally, I was thrilled when W25 Magazine picked up the spread. And yes, I named the spread after the song by Portishead. If you must know I named the "What's Golden" shoot after a song by Jurassic 5! Both great songs if you haven't heard them!
