I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this shoot! Normally I’m a very sleek, black, spy chic kind of gal. But part of the fun of being a model is getting to try out different looks, different characters. This particular one was probably the most different look I’ve ever done! Pastels are the antithesis of my usual palette (she says as she washes her almost entirely black laundry load). So when my make up artist and stylist friend, Dustin Sean Lazenby and photographer, Richard Scalzo pulled this get-up together, I was a bit hesitant…
Then they put the wig on me.
I was hooked! So off I went, prancing my buttermint pastel self to the front of the camera, grinning my head off as I went.
Speaking of grinning, I know many of you have mentioned how you’d like to see me smile more in my pictures. While I joke that I only have two modes – model face and derp face. The truth is I’m quite self conscious of my smile (I’ll spare you my wah wah whiny details), and feel it comes out looking really wonky in photos. But you better believe if I get a photo where it looks normal and pretty, I’m going to post it! I feel so spoiled by Richard in this photoshoot because I got not one, but multiple attractive smiling pictures!
When I got these final edits, I was having a sick day in bed, feeling rather rotten and dumpy, having been in the same PJs for days (depression is a jerk), unwashed face, hair, weight gain, etc. Getting these pictures in my inbox turned my whole day around!
I hope you enjoyed this Honeydukes-tastic look!
