I was on Facebook one random night when I got a message from a friend of a friend named Abasi. He asks if I model. I say yes, but I don't do it often. He asks if we could possibly do a shoot together since he's a photographer. Looking at the outdated photo on my business cards and my website, I check his other work out, and I agree. I get to the point. "Set it up, tell me when and where, and I'll make myself available." Surprisingly he gets back to me a few days later. Through our contacts, we put together a team, and a photoshoot was born. We set the scene at Stir Lounge in NYC. Abasi brings in Jolene Phillips to assist him with photography and lighting. I phoned my friend Dennine Dyer to be my stylist, and she brings her friend Martin as an assistant. My make-up artist was Tracy Pairis. Praise God, she was a hair stylist. (My regular hairdresser chose this week to come down with the flu, sigh.) While playing my iPod's Hotness playlist (which includes "All That I Can Say" by Mary J, "Be Ok" by Chrisette Michelle, "Exposed" by Wayna, "As" by Stevie, and many more), we put together three different looks. I love being doted on and fussed over.
A few of the items used in accentuating my beauty...-------- Tracy doing my make-up. She's niiiice with it! -------- Finally dressed, with the help of Dennine. Just putting the finishing touches on the first look. We did two more looks before we wrapped up for the day. Here's a quick video blog. (Notice the fly eye shadow). :)
Check back next time for the photos! :)Stay Blessed
