I was invited to be part of a great event in Houston Texas, the Sugar Skull Photoshoot. It was an amazing experience from the moment I arrived at Hilton Americas Hotel to get my make up done by Kim Maracchini. She is such a wonderful Makeup Artist. She has done so many amazing fashion shows… I was very excited when I got booked with her for this makeup session. Kim has a school/spa in Collage Station in Texas. She is a very hard working mother and wife!
For more photos about her work please visit this link, you will be amazed!
Working on this photo session was a lot of fun. I got to meet with several photographers from Houston and near by cities.
These photos were taken at the University of Houston in Downtown. This photo was taken by no other then Richard Priest.
The more you work the more you understand the art of modeling. Everyone has this idea of Modeling being an easy job but in reality you spend hours and hours prepping, then comes the make up, wardrobe, location and set up, the selection of models and finally the photo session begins. Sometimes weather is in our favor and sometimes you just have to deal with it. In this particular shoot it was 100 degrees out and we had to just act like we were in this tropical weather having a great time. Every time they rotate models it will give you some time to rest and get in the shade fix your makeup and hair and you will do it all over again.
I have to admit, you have to really like this job to enjoy it. And having to work with a group of wonderful individuals is a blessing. It makes the job easier.
As woman we have so many fears, we are always worried about how we look and we often forget that we are beautiful just the way you are. There is an opportunity for each one of us in this profession….
Yes! I know sometimes we come across some photographers that have their preferences but Hey, you do your thing and you will shine!
We are all different shape, size, race, culture but in the end we are all women, mothers, daughters, sisters, wifes, business women and we are strong individuals!
When I got to location I didn’t know what was going to happen I wasn’t sure they will pick me but I did the job as hard as anyone else there and as you can see on this photographs the hard work paid off.
