Recent Shoot with Ashley Woloschuk
February 18, 2012

A candy and sweets themed shoot with Ashley Woloschuk (MM # 1421701).

The concept was bright and sparkly so MUA Rebecca Mercer prepared Ashley while photography assistant Andrew Crawford made a Tim’s run. 😉

Although Ashley was feeling under the weather, she was a trooper and performed wonderfully, even after accidentally inhaling one of the little candy balls and going into a coughing fit. We all had a great fit of laughter and Ashley recovered to finish the set.


Recent Shoot with Catherine Richardson
February 17, 2012

I recently shot a classic pin-up style set with Catherine Richardson (MM # 738491)

What a delight to work with. 🙂

Catherine was full of energy and a sheer professional and I hope to work with her again on some future project.

The shoot was a portfolio job to help out up-and-coming new MUA Rebecca Mercer and here are a few samples.

I hope you like them.
