This shoot was a collaboration between hair stylist Heather Fulbright and makeup artist/model Christina Grillo. I have worked with these two very talented ladies in the past, so I was super excited to be able to work with them again. Let me tell you, these two women did not disappoint! The guidelines were simple: big hair, gold, red, fabulous. The result is a set of photos that contain 3 different looks, all of which channel a little bit of Vegas. I am very excited to share these photos with everyone because I am quite proud of them. I see growth in them and that makes me extremely excited about this year.
I entered 2012 with a goal to expand the business portion of SLTP and while it is always important to pay attention to the dollars and cents of ones business I am happy that 2012 ended with my focus on the artistry of what I do. As I rolled in and out of my first week of 2013 I am thinking a lot about where I am at this moment with the photographs I am taking. The best way to do this is to actually get up and do it, so I pealed off my pjs and into some work clothes, pulled out my equipment and props, stood in front of the camera, and had a photo session with, myself. The following selection is a stamp in time of where I am at this moment and as I edited my photos I asked myself, “What do you want to do when you grow up Shu?” The answer, “I don’t want to just be a photographer, I want be an image maker.” What does that mean? Please check back often this year to find out. I am very excited. It’s time to grow.
This December, Ms. Sophie turns the big 1- 0 so we got together with her mama to documenting this doggy milestone!
