Rose Gold is my latest beauty editorial published in. I had such a great time styling, photographing, and retouching the photos. Executing creative shoots is a great way to grow in skill, and I learn something valuable every time!
For many of my shoots, I act as both photographer and creative director. When planning an editorial, I always define a concept beforehand. I pull inspiration images of mood, tone, and posing so that my team understands my vision. For this shoot, I wanted to showcase dainty jewels and a metallic, rosy color palette. My main inspiration was drawn from the stacks of thin gemstone rings. I wanted soft, dreamy expressions and delicate posing. The silky blush blouses added shine, texture, and color without overpowering the model or jewelry.
I partnered with talented hair and makeup artist Alexis Broderick of Rouge Refinery. She brought the warm color palette and metallic tones I was going for while keeping a classic overall look. She is also an experienced stylist with amazing attention to detail. Always love having her on my set!
Our model is the stunning Kymara Stokes with. I came across her at a runway event and knew I had to photograph her. She has a striking gaze and delicate bone structure perfect for a romantic beauty editorial. She was the sweetest to work with and a natural in front of the camera.
