I absolutely love doing editorial photo shoots. I love getting to completely use my own artistic ability to create whatever kind of photos I want. Our beautiful model, Alaynia, made photographing so easy & working with Mena Childs of Xcel Makeup Artistry for the second time was so much fun. The beautiful make up truly completes these photographs. We had such a fun time working together and she is incredibly talented; so make sure to check out her website: http://www.xcelmakeup.com/.
Harriet is an artisan for Musana, a non profit organization that employs women in Uganda so that they can provide for their children. I got to meet her when she flew to the US (for the first time) for Musana's 2nd annual gala. She is by far one of my favorite people that I have photographed. She is such an inspiring woman with such strength and resilience. Despite the hardships that life has given her, she shows such gratitude, positivity and humility and has overcome so much. She chooses to love God and this life he has given her. I have never met anyone more humble, strong, faithful, or grateful; and I loved being able to capture that in my photos. I only got to spend a short time with her but I am excited I get to see her again, and meet so many others in Uganda this July!
This shoot was one of my favorite shoots I've done so far! I am so grateful that I got to be the first to professionally photograph the beautiful Rebi Crewalk to build her modeling portfolio. She is stunning inside and out :). I also would like to thank Mena Childs of Xcel Makeup Artistry for doing an incredible job with Rebi's makeup! We had such a fun time working together and she provides quality work; so make sure to check out her website: http://www.xcelmakeup.com/.
