It was great fun playing stylist-photog for this shoot, and working with the lovely young Marilyn as model and the super-talented make-up artist, Alexandra, from Makeup by Ale. Since I work out of my home studio, we had a bit of a challenge with space for make-up and then the shoot. I sometimes have clients walk into my place for a consultation and they are pretty surprised to learn that all the magic happens in a tiny space. Keep a look out for more on this series.

This Teen With Cancer Modeled in a Stunning Photo Shoot After Losing Her Hair
I have been bursting at the seams waiting to share this particular shoot with you because a I love working with teen girls b we had a ton of fun getting her all glammed up and c she is drop dead gorgeous — and smart to boot. Naomi is a little on the shy side but you would not know it looking at these portraits — she brought it full force with the smiles, the dramatic soulful eyes and the sweet innocence of a young girl. If all my future clients are as sweet and easygoing as Naomi and her mom, Miquela, I will be in photographer heaven!
Poster sized images of glammed up women with big hair and shiny outfits beckoned you from the food court or nearest Gadzooks store. Glamour Shots studios convinced us that all we needed to infuse a little glamor into our lives was metallic fabric or sting of pearls, a cowboy hat or sailor hat in my case , and a blurred camera lens, prompting women everywhere to whip out their faux leather checkbook wallets for a piece of the action. Glamour Shots created the sense that anyone could be a supermodel but took a distinctly one-size-fits-all approach to their model-style photo shoots, meaning their stylists were probably only trained in a single technique. Fortunately for women everywhere Glamour photography has come a long way over the past several years.
