An Evening of Hope in Casablanca

On Saturday night (June 19 2010) the Archibald-Cochran Ballroom in the Galthouse was transformed into a beautiful dreamy scene from a movie for an amazing benefit for the American Cancer Society which included an elegant dinner, dancing and of course - a FASHION SHOW! Casablanca style! The show's fashion and accessories were provided by Peacock Boutique and The Dressing Room (both located on Frankfort Ave). They were all absolutely fabulous and I wanted everything that was in the show! Be sure to check out these stores if you haven't already. They have a brilliant selection of unique designers, fabulous jewelry and are some of my favorites in town.

The glamorous look they were going for made me instantly excited about being a part of this particular event. I'm such a sucker for vintage! Hair and makeup was lead by Lorie Karnes of Glitzy Glamour Designs and included Andrea Ahl and the Paul Mitchel School. The models were so wonderful and we had so much fun backstage before the show. I was very lucky to work with such a great group of lovely ladies! I hope I get to work with you all again in the future! And thank you to Jacob Zimmer for putting us all together and for all of the hard work that went into the production of the event. It was beautiful. And OF COURSE a big thank you to everyone who came out to support such a great cause!

Alicia C's Louisville Shoots Round 2

Alicia C Photography's second round of photoshoots in Louisville starred Laurie Johnson, Elizabeth Dryden, Tiffany Leake, Nisha Abraham and Whittney Dawn Allen. It was a steamy hot week for outdoor photoshoots, but everyone was fantastic and pulled through like champs. I even shot a quick jewelry ad for Shallott Lilly one evening. Alicia's work was impeccable as always. My responsibilities rested in keeping everyone's makeup and hair looking fresh and beautiful. Fun memories were made that week while some of us went to great lengths to stay cool and sane! Be sure to take a look at our work and visit www.alicia-c-photography.com.

Going to the Drive In!

I have always wanted to do a fantastic shoot at a drive-in movie theater and when the idea was passed by me I was super excited! We have a friend who owned a FANTASTIC cherry red 1953 Buick Special... and it shot FLAMES out the back! Seriously!

It rained all the day of the shoot and I kept my fingers crossed. We made it out to the shoot site and five minutes after we started shooting... the rain came. I tried to keep my curls pinned and cute, but mother nature had her way with me eventually.

The second half of the shoot had to wait until the sun went down because the rain wouldn't let up, but when it did we got some of the greatest shots of the night! I think my favorite might be the one of me throwing the popcorn in the air. It was too much fun. (I was still picking it out of my hair at Spinelli's later that night haha)

Masha Archer Jewelry

In anxious anticipation of the new Sex and the City movie, Peacock Boutique on Frankfort Avenue held a special Truck Show at Avalon recently for jewelry Designer Masha Archer, who's designs were seen in the movie.

Her celebrity clients and collectors include Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Beyonce Knowles, Clint Eastwood, Gladys Knight, Calista Flockhart, Ivana Trump, amd Jennifer Love Hewitt just to name a few.

Her necklaces are rich and made with coral, lapis, pearl, jade, amber, bone, African trade beads, silver and turquoise. I had the opportunity to shoot some of the pieces from her collection and they were exquisite! Each one was a complete work of art. Some of them were so big the could even function as a shirt!

Myself and model Nisha Abraham felt like exotic princesses during our shoot with Dennis Ledford. Trying to LOOK like princesses in the excruciating heat became the challenge. Nisha was a champ - wish I could say the same... the heat got the best of me there for a bit. Be sure to check out her amazing set on her facebook page HERE. She rocked it!
