(dress TRIXIE ENCOMIENDA)
I did a photo shoot with mega awesome Melissa De Mata of happymess sort of a last minute "Hey lets whip something up because we have this urge running through our blood to shoot and dress up in really awesome clothes and platform heels and romp around fields and get bitten by all sorts of bug species sort of thing!" No but really... I absolutely love working with people who have this creative vision and just want to produce beautiful work to simply express themselves in ways that some may or may not understand. This is why I admire Melissa so much...She says what she feels and has a way of trying to define her emotions and those she shoots through her photos in such a breathtaking way. Here are a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot. How rad is it that I have my own personal make-up artist since I pretty much only know how to put on the basics. I was Jaydee's blank canvas, painting my lips a dark plum, piling on the mascara and teasing my hair Snooki-Style. Thanks a bunch Jaydee! We packed bags of clothes, shoes, make up, full length mirror in the other hand and hiked up a hill to a small field to get our fix!
