One beautiful Friday afternoon I was brought on to provide makeup for one of DFinney Photography’s mentoring sessions. The mentee was Vanessa Moye and she was such a delight to be around. Our model for the day was Janelle, a budding photographer from Chicago. Janelle was in town for a friend’s wedding and signed up to be a model for the hands-on photography portion of the session.
Janelle walked in and I thought she was absolutely gorgeous! Her skin, her hair, and OMG those eyes were definitely something to write home about. After we exchanged pleasantries, my idea to do my signature natural makeup look went out the window! I wanted, I NEEDED to make her eyes stand out and her lips to pop! I couldn't wait to get started with her and I am happy that she felt so beautiful afterwards. <3
