Photography: Laura Tillinghast.
Makeup: Elizabeth Chang (Skyla Arts)
Hair Styling & Wardrobe styling: Michelle Tan (MicheStyle)
Model: Mackenzie Drazan with Stars Model Management.

This is my first time working with the amazing Laura but I worked with Michelle on the shoot with Yifei Gu and I am happy to be able to work with her again! Michelle had the outfits planned and told me she was going for a teen vogue girly punk look. I thought the clothes looked great and the accessories were very cool! Mackenzie is 5’10, and with the shoes, she was 6’4! It was awesome! To think that Mackenzie could keep growing taller was cool too! I love to admire tall people! lol~ i’m weird huh?

The first photo is Mackenzie getting her hair and makeup done. The second is when she was studying some poses on Laura’s computer. We did 4 outfits, 2 hairstyles, and 2 makeup looks! :) Mackenzie was awesome, and with Laura’s professional posing pointers, I was thrilled and inspired on set! I am so happy for the 2nd “Beauty” look with the red lips, inspired by Alexis Bledel. When I saw Mackenzie’s blue eyes, I was so excited to put some bold lips on her! I can’t wait to see the photos, and special thanks to Laura, for being a great leader on set. I can’t wait until the next time I work with either Laura or Michelle. :)

By the way, I added a Cbox on the right hand side of my blog, so if you get a chance or have any questions, please leave a comment or a shout out! :)

You might remember Jeah from here and here. The images posted here are a courtesy from dK Weddings! I apologize for the delayed posting of the images! I was just caught up launching my website, and with a few things here and there that I’m a bit backed up with my postings! On the last photo of this post, you can also see Jeah’s mother-in-law and her step-mom, whom I also did makeup on but didn’t get to capture the before & after. I really love the photo of Jeah and her father; Actually there are many photos that I loved but I didn’t want to bug Jeah to send me so many! Can’t be too greedy! I’m very happy to be a part of Jeah’s special day. Enjoy the images, and you can see a few more at theBridal gallery! :) Enjoy!

You might have seen A & N in my portfolio under weddings. I never got a chance to discuss them previously, but they are actually my sister and brother-in-law. My sister was my first ever bridal client! (Although she paid me in Makeup instead of money! ^^) I was very touched that she chose me as her makeup artist even though I wasn’t a working artist then and I feel very honored to be selected to work with them again! (even though we are related!) My sister & brother-in-law have been tremendously encouraging and supportive throughout my career and I would always talk about photography with my brother-in-law, who is also passionate about photography! With their approval, I am sharing these images with you. Enjoy the images, and you can see a few more at the Family & Maternity gallery! :) I hope you like them!
