PhotoShoot Complete

The last week of July was intense for me, mainly because I was trying to shake a cold like a hobo trying to ask for change in Denver (lol which I have had happen before! lol) and I was working on getting back into drawing AND finishing up my photo shoots for this style contest.

Last thursday, Chloe and I had our Peacock theme shoot and this past sunday, I had my Mermaid theme with Michelle. This was all such a fun experience and I am proud that I actually did it. It may not be perfect and I may not even win, but I got the experience of it and learned alot about what works and what doesnt.  For my first real time doing a makeup photoshoot, I can honestly say that its not bad.

Here are a few pics of me and my models and the photographer, Charisse goofin around after the shoot.

Chloe and I....and I never realized how "freckly" I look until now. Weird

I completed my face sheets earlier tonight so I can send them in. I still have a few more things to list out, such as all the products I used for makeup and hair, and I need to edit the photos I have chosen to send. I will post the photos and the facesheets when I get it done! I just wanted to share this with you.

Today, my school got the results of a Paul Mitchell Contest that the school held a few months ago. The contest was to sell certain products and if you sell 3, it gets your name in the drawing, my name along with 4 other girls was randomly chosen from our school, and we found out the results. One of the night students won a smoothing iron with all the signatures of the top stylists of Paul Mitchell. That would have been so amazing to win something like that. I am so happy for the girl who did win, and this was actually the first time our school has won a contest, so that was super cool!

Ok, I am rambling and I need to get to bed. I am sorry I have not posted as much as I usually do. I have my sister visting from Colorado and just been busy with non-art related stuff. But I will be back up and running next week I promise!

Quote of the Day:

Precious memories. Think of a memory as a power, only you can relive the experiences that you have been through, whether to please you aesthetically, to grab wisdom by using your past experiences to help you make new decisions, help interact with other people, or to help with problem solving. We keep memories for a variety of reasons sometimes to hold on to the things we love the things that have made us who we are and who we never want to lose. It is kind of like how Oscar Wilde says "memories are small diaries that we will keep in our heads always."

Not every memory will be pleasant because it is not just good things that make us who we are, we are molded and shaped by the bad things that happen in our lives as well. We must learn to never let memories go, but never let our past determine our future either.

Till next time, surrender to your inner artist!
