About the Photoshoot:

The photoshoot went great. I loved working with the model Daniela Otero and photographer Melissa Berrios. These ladies were a pleasure to work with.  It all started with an idea that developed into a creative concept, come to life. I had the opportunity to work as the makeup artist, hairstylist, and wardrobe stylist.  These three areas are my biggest passion. As soon as I started working with the model getting her ready and we stepped into location I knew it was going to be a good session. Even though we got attacked by insects we survived. 🙂

I loved how the dress and the accessories complimented the concept of a young woman in love mourning the death of her lover, proving that their love can last no matter the distance or time. Think of Romeo and Juliet love moment. The contrast between the dark, vibrant colors and shades  used  from the wardrobe to the floral in scenery made it dark but romantic.  The makeup for this shoot was interesting, we wanted to do something that stayed true to the concept but yet feminine. It took time, patience, a couple of retouching here and there but we figured it out to make it as close to perfect as possible.

Personally I like working with open minded, creative, innovative, and talented  persona’s who share the same passion and determination for art. Even if we express ourselves in different ways no matter which field it is.  When you have idea and your willing to share it with the world, and you have the drive its one of the best feeling in the world.
