JE Modeling Agency

An "Exhibit" of My Own

This is the second photoshoot where photographer, Ashley Batz and I partnered with JE Model Management. We had the pleasure of meeting Emmalee Froenlich  this past week! Her own personal style reflects the trends of the 70's and she had the best eyebrows!!

Photographers Kim A. Thomas and Ashley picked out a few favorite pieces from Madewell-while I styled accessories, hair, and makeup. Special thanks to FAUX Lash for completing Emmalee's look with the oh-so fluttery Sasha lashes. SERIOUSLY. THEY ARE STUNNING!

To achieve this hair style: curl small sections of the hair like this and use LOTS of hairspray. Pull all the hair up to the top of the head and tie with a hair band. Pull the pony tail tight! Braid a small section of the pony tail, and wrap it around the band to cover it (use a bobby pin to secure in the back). To soften the curls, and add more volume...tease the top and middle of the pony tail (in small sections). Set the look with hair spray.

I have been dreaming of using Exhibit-A blush, by NARS, for months! Ever since I saw the Thakoon Fashion Show-finally I got to paint a face with it!! It is a verrry pigmented product, so if you would prefer a lighter version of this hue, use a loosely bound blush brush. Always ensure your blush and lips coincide with their undertones. Exhibit-A, has a red/orange undertone that pairs perfectly with Laura Mercier's Sunrise Lip Colour (Also seen here).

Normally I would opt for a lighter eye, since the blush and lips are so bold. Yet, something vibrant on the eye was the only thing that seemed right. NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Outremer captivates my eyes! I wanted the color to show it's true strength, so I used MACs paint pot in painterly as my base, and simply pressed the shadow onto the lid. I stopped as I reached the crease, and used a pony tail brush to soften the edges.

A Whimsical Forest

A photo shoot takes many days to prepare, but with the right partners it is the easiest task to complete. This last photo shoot I was constantly moving... ensuring the lashes are placed correctly, the bobby pins are in tight, and the accessories to the wardrobe are just so.

Photographer Ashley Batz, JE Model Joleen, and myself traveled to the Presidio Forest to have an adventure together. The San Francisco breeze was in our favor that day...we explored this enchanted forest as spiders scurried away with our footsteps. (Yes, we all screamed at the sight!)

Audrey Faux Lashes
JE Modeling agency requested a natural look for Joleen, and the Audrey Faux Lashes were the perfect touch!! These handmade lashes were SO easy to apply! You could barely tell there was anything there, yet it made such a difference. I have fallen for this lash company...officially OBSESSED! They were Joleen's first introduction to quality lashes, she was so happy to take them home.

As I stood in the background holding 2 bags, 4 lip glosses and a brush...I smiled and felt like I was part of a special moment. Joleen displayed character of a true model-it's just who she is. Ashely was a joy to watch, as she directed Joleen's movements-she is so sincere-it's just who she is.
