Beauty Photography begins with a team. We are all subject to identifying what we are willing to do to achieve our vision. I was very fortunate to have a few great ones. My model is Ciara. She is naturally talented and has a willing spirit. This is the day it took her several hours, several flights, several ways to test her resolve and make it to the photoshoot. She would consider herself to be a “newbie”, but in my eyes, she is everything professional with her disposition and wiliness to try and absorb any critique. She is also a talented artist with modalities of paint.

The day I wanted to shoot was a day of testing. I wanted to test my skill set and see how well I could incorporate Holi paint in a photoshoot. I called upon an extremely talented makeup artist that loves what she does and is an extreme perfectionist, which is a pleasure to work with especially for me.

Nykema put her skills to work as we worked out the details of how this will turn out….Needless to say, I am EXTREMELY PLEASED and set to experiment more. If you are ever in need of a makeup artist, she is one of the best in Houston. https://www.nykemabrownbeauty.com/
