Few weeks back, did a glam portfolio shoot with Lauren Rae. The shoot was fun and with near 100 degrees ambient temperature in Scottsdale, AZ. Despite the temperature, we had a blast! And we had awesome support from Tonya (MUA) and Chloe (home and lighting) who provided varied assistance during the shoot.
The idea was to provide Lauren, who is an experienced and well respected fitness expert and model, a look that would make her show off her body in some glam poses and shooting at dusk to give her some golden shine to enhance her beauty and give her a bit of en edgy look.
Lauren looked just spectacular and did a superb job posing for these pics.
These are some behind the scenes shots.
The make up was done in a way such that it helped emphasize Lauren's beautiful blue eyes and features. The hair styling was done so it would give enough volume to keep things edgy but not too much in order to retain the natural look especially for some of the swimsuit looks.
Tonya provided the make up (makeup by Tonya) www.makeupbytonya.com and she did a superb job!
Chloe allowed us to use her home for the shoot and helped us with a little of everything. She was 120% efficient and fun to be around. She primarily supported the shoot with the lighting. Whether managing the strobes, operating the light meter or handling the reflector to ensure that the right amount of light was available for each frame.
It was a lot of fun!
All in all the shoot was a nice time and the team worked together real well.
Lauren has become a star in the realm of fitness and lifestyle. She is a true role model for everyone interested in healthy living. Lauren recently found home in Dallas, TX and has move her promotion of healthy living to the next level. I love tracking her progress and her postings in Facebook. She always has some great positive phrase or thought that she will post on her wall.
See below a sample of her work, check her facebook site and make sure you "like it".
Good Job Lauren!!!
Keeping it real!
