I once read that creativity is like food for the soul, and that when you're an artist, amazing projects feed your heart. That is how I felt about this session with Elise, where I got to really spread my creative wings and make some art. At the core of who I am and what I do, getting to dream big has always been part of the process. There is nothing I love more than planning, scheming, and putting together something absolutely different than what I have tried before. We utilized a gorgeous Houston studio, where I was able to work with our fabulous makeup artist Kaitlyn to bring this my makeup vision to life. Elise was fabulous, and was willing to try just about anything to achieve an edgy and stylish feel. I especially love the photo of her mom taking her photo, because it captured the fun we were all having on set!
Beautiful Elise is graduating as part of the class of 2020 from Foster High School. She's an incredible athlete, participating in swim and volleyball, and she enjoys being with her friends in her spare time. She also has a flair for great makeup looks, and is always up on the newest makeup trends (I'm sure she could teach me a thing or two!). I think she's got quite a lot of creativity herself, and she utilizes her seemingly endless energy by practicing her makeup skills and dreaming of doing interior or fashion design one day. As her last summer job, she also worked as a lifeguard. I really loved her denim on denim pairing here, and her super gorgeous Kendra Scott earrings (one of my favorite pieces). The shimmery red and gold makeup has a bit of a Hunger Games feel, and was "fiery", just like my lovely model!
I hope to be sharing more creative and styled shoots here on the blog, so stay tuned! I have plenty of dreaming still up my sleeve!
