Sugar Skull Glamour Fashion Photo Shoot
OMG! That’s all I have to say hahaha! Okay, this is a dream come true for me. Deep down I am an artist and that is what I have always been so being able to collaborate with other artists to make this happen is beyond amazing! My colleague and friend...more
The purpose of this shoot (aside from showing off our fabulous skills) was to photograph a woman transitioning from almost dead to dead. At the same time I wanted a good vs evil look. For the first look, I wanted the makeup application to be more ethereal, soft and dreamy looking – Almost Angelic. (It was Suzanne’s idea to do two looks, one that is transitioning into sugar skull and the second to be full sugar skull). For the second look I wanted it to be more fashion, dark and punk rock. Almost like a heaven vs hell thing: One very light and airy and the next very dark and deep.
My next blog will show how I tied this transition together. I know that Suzanne and Maribel wanted to show off the photos, so I wanted to blog these first which are more “creative portraiture” and in the next set, a series – almost like an exhibition at an art gallery.
I hope you love this work because we worked hard and had a blast putting this session together
