We ended up working in my new small home studio which is still under construction. Most of the shoot was trial and error, due to my minimal studio experience. I’m used to shooting with natural lighting and plenty of space. It’s a new experience trying to control all of the light, especially in such a small place.
I was also fortunate enough to have Tani L. Chavez helping me with make up and hair. Below are some behind the scenes shots.
I had no idea that make up and hair took so long!
I don't think Sami did either... :D
The shoot turned out better than I had hoped. Sami was a pleasure to work with once again, and Tani went above and beyond what I was expecting. She had a lot of in-studio knowledge that helped the shoot run smoothly. Tani was always on guard with hair and wardrobe, catching and fixing small mistakes that would have been difficult to edit in post production.
I had a great time photographing Sami, and I hope she did too!
Thank you to both of these talented young ladies for all of their help, and stay tuned for more glam&beauty photography coming soon.
