A few weeks ago, I had my makeup artist Dee and my photographer friend Lauren both contact me asking to work with me. Luckily they were available on the same day, and the stars totally aligned for this photo shoot. Dee from Flawless Faces has done my makeup a few times before (see here and here), and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her! Somehow she has this magical way of making me look like myself, but 1000% better. It’s a gift, ya’ll. So if you haven’t hopped over to check out her website yet, please do!
My friend Lauren from LA Photography shot these photos, and I am completely obsessed with them! Is it weird to be obsessed with pictures of yourself? Probably. Lauren and I go way back – our moms are besties (Hi mom! Hi Veronica!), and we lived across the street from each other as teenagers. Lauren has quite the booming photography business where she shoots weddings, engagements, family portraits, etc. This shoot was a new experience for both of us – her first time shooting fashion photography, and my first time working with a professional photographer. I think she totally KILLED IT. What do you guys think?
