Mentoring for Laci

Okay….I think it is safe to say that I have forgotten about my blog! My poor neglected blog! But for those of you who still follow my blog I am going to attempt to be better at keeping up on it. I thought this session would be a great one to start with because it is one of my favorites EVER! These are from a mentoring session I did for Laci. We had a blast! What photographer wouldn’t after being given this gorgeous model to work with! Mentoring sessions are literally one of my favorite things to do. I am so passionate about how photography works and love sharing that with people! Thank you Laci for coming to see me. And thank you to our lovely model Keana for making our job so easy! My very talented friend Ixchel Fairbanks did the makeup for our lovely model. For makeup tips and tutorials check out her site at She is seriously so talented! And clic here to view a video explaining how she did the make up for this shoot.
