makeup + hair styling for stitch fix

have you gotten your FIX yet?  Stitch fix is a really cool clothing company with out of the box concepts and hey, you get your own personal stylist, which I think is pretty sweet!  If you have never shopped with STITCH FIX before, you should check them out.  I have been working with their production team on makeup + hair styling and they are so much fun!  Here are a couple sample images from the studios at STITCH FIX.

fashion shoot with Sierra

I love teaching and mentoring.  A couple of weeks ago, I got the pleasure of mentoring a very talented film photographer and during our session, we got to plan and shoot my beautiful daughter, Sierra.  I have been lucky to have been able to photograph this little girl her entire life.  I have to say, she gets more beautiful and fun to work with every year.  It would be fun to post a series of photos that I have taken of her over her lifetime, but for now, here are some of my recent favorites from our shoot/ mentor session.
