I am fortunate to know many young talented ladies who are photographers, hairstylists, makeup artists, and models here in Tucson and Phoenix. We get together from time to time with enthusiasm, energy, creativity and hope that this photo shoot will be the one! You know.......................... the Italian Vogue spread.
I am the stylist most of the time, I have also been the make up artist , and my favorite photo shoots are shot at our house. I like to provide a warm home when everyone comes together- healthy food, and snacks, beverages and espresso. We all need espresso for these long days- Usually 6-8 hours of shooting. Let's also add in 2-3 hours of cleaning the house, and backyard prior to the shoot. My husband is always kind to help out with all the cleaning and backyard . I also spend 2-3 hours pulling clothes and props from my private collection to create the "look" of the shoot. I love doing this kind of work, it keeps my creative juices flowing.
Below are some of my favorite photo shoots that were shot at our house .
