Anyway, these two girls did amazing! And my hair/make-up artist did so great making these girls look even more beautiful than they already are. So here you go:
This is the oh so pretty Azure*. I've actually done the ACU top a bunch of times since everyone I do pictures for are military wives but I haven't got to share any of them.
And this is the very doll face Malorie. I did a "nerdy" session with her. I love themes! But I lacked books...I still think it turned out pretty cute. I like personal shoots. I want to find a wife with a XBOX obsessed husband (and let's face it, there are plenty of those) and do a cute XBOX themed session.
I can't really take credit for this set up. Azure and Shamila thought this would be cute and they were right.
I love the way the blue in her hair looks in this picture.
Can I just brag about the fact that she's pregnant? Wow!
Stunning! Her eyes are so freaking pretty! I love big eyes.
And now my favorites:
I'm not a huge black and white fanatic (I mean I love it but I also really love color) but both of these just looked so much better in black and white.
Elvgren once described his ideal model as having a fifteen-year-old-face on a
I think that is the best way to describe Malorie's look.
I love Gil Elvgren and even though this isn't a classic kind of pin-up this picture embodies a different era for me.
Oh, and those are my shoes she has on. I've worn them once and I know they are killers! So she was a total trooper.
My number one photographer that I LOVE (I don't think I can stress how much I love her) is Ellen Von Unwerth. I use to obsess over her Guess ads in Vogue when I was growing up. They were always sexy in such a cool way. But every picture she takes is just so amazing and perfect.
So this is my Ellen Von Unwerth inspired picture. And Azure has that sexy but cool model kind of look to her.
Thank you so much to these women! I appreciate you letting me use these pictures.
And a HUGE thank you to Shamila Mote! You did so great!
