Avant Garde Ballerina Shoot with Leafy
On Sunday I did a collaboration with J. Guess Photography and beautiful model Oletha Dawn Roth (affectionately known as Leafy). Not only is she an extremely talented and beautiful model, but she is also skilled in ballet! Jami Guess has strategically planned this shoot for awhile and it was exciting to watch it all come together - ballet slippers and all.
I was brought in to create the hair and makeup for this elaborate look. Leafy was so patient during the whole process which took a few hot minutes, as you can imagine! After blending, teasing, spraying and powdering, the result was a very "avant garde punk ballerina" of sorts. The shoot location was an extremely old (literally falling apart) home in the country. Leafy couldn't have been more brilliant and Jami's shots were amazing.
Thanks guys for letting me be a part of this little adventure!
