I just realized I never shared this amazing fashion shoot with the beautiful JULIANNA. The final product sure did blow me away, thanks to Sufia Huq Photo. Months of planning and collaboration went into this day. Picking out color palettes, locations, outfits. But most importantly finding the perfect model. Honestly once we started shooting and the lighting, the colors, the style, Julianna, it literally all collided in one moment and my breath was taken away. Also can I just say, this was Julianna’s first shoot modeling and WOW she killed it! There is something super intense about the creative process. An intensity that is filled with hope yet fear. Hope that everything you had in your mind comes fourth and then fear that it may just totally flop! Well this was a creative release that was well worth the pressure!
For this makeup look I wanted Julianna’s skin to shine! Every curve of her face to have definition and glow. My product of choice was, Temptu, silicon base airbrush makeup. I used all airbrush, foundation, blush, highlight, contour and eye shadow. In some of the last photos I added some glitter lips, seriously, SO FUN! I switched up her lip color three times. See if you can spot it. 😉 I also styled her hair, which those that know me, I do NOT do hair. But for this I wanted a super simple look with all focus on her face. I went with a middle part slicked back low pony tail and it totally completed her look more than I realized once we got on location to shoot, it fit perfect!
The vintage fur coat was actually my nana’s whom my mom now owns and lent us, truly the shoot wouldn’t have been the same without it! Fur coat for the win! I love this shoot because it can be used for spring/summer and fall/winter fashion. The crushed velvet gold dress perfect for spring and so versatile! And can we just talk about the red velvet block heels, all sorts of YES! I wish I bought a pair in my size!
In the middle of shooting we noticed a car that fit perfectly into our color palette and well the guy was kind enough to let us shoot with its awesome paint job, lifted spinners and all. Oh Orlando, I love you. I hope you enjoyed my breakdown of this shoot, now go enjoy some photos… Let me know what you think.
