My Latest Photos

I finally received my photos from the photo sessions I participated in on the 11th. I'm really loving them but having a hard time deciding on which to include in my portfolio. Let me know which you think should be included! Thanks!

My Past Work ;-)

Lately I've been going through my portfolio in order to update it. I am currently in the process of removing old photos to make room for new ones, and it's very interesting to see where I have improved and where I may still need improvement. There is still a lot of technical things that I have yet to learn and others that I continue to struggle with but I think I am coming along nicely and I know that with the proper training, practice and confidence, I will continue to grow. Overall, I've had the opportunity to work with some awesome people, and for that I'm grateful...I love what I do and I hope to be able to do it for the rest of my life, successfully. The photos below aren't in chronological order.

This photo is from a myspace competition I participated in a couple of years ago. The theme was Drag, and I think I won 2Nd or third place. LOL...I know I look crazy, but this was fun to do. :-)

While attending SFIEC, I was on the Design team, it was a lot of fun and we were given the opportunity to practice or skills at real events. The next three photos are from fashion shows that we participated in. :-)

This was fun to do. We didn't have a place to do makeup so we did it on a park bench!

I did a bit of makeup for a indie 60's style horror film. Canvas of Blood. :-)

I think this was my first actual photoshoot. :-)

Hey...I'm Back! computer is now up and running, no more icky virus! Quick Post!

I have been having a great week so far, since July, I have felt like I was under a huge dark cloud that followed me EVERYWHERE, but the past couple weeks have great, and lately been I have been able to see the sun shine through the clouds. :-) On Friday, I did makeup for a photoshoot, something I haven't done in a very long time, and Saturday, I did makeup for my first bride. :-) I feel like I'm slowly getting back into my grove and I am highly optimistic!

Ok...that's all for tonight...ttyl. :-)
P.S. I'll post pics from the photoshoot as soon as I receive them.

Stay Beautiful!
