Lauren O'Jea and I have been doing a lot of beauty shoots lately. It was funny how it happened. We both for completely different reasons needed to revamp our portfolios. She needed more natural and editoral looks and I just needed to show that I could do beauty shots period. Lauren and I started pumping out photos and along the way I started to love doing beauty shoots. This shoot is really different for me. We picked five colors and Lauren did a corresponding editoral look for each color. My sweetheart Alexandria was our model for the day. I love working with her. She really is the sweetest girl and I adore her mother as well. We somehow managed to get this whole shoot done in two and a half hours. I still have no idea how we pulled that off.
