My studio wardrobe is bursting at the seams with the gorgeous pieces that I find every once-in-a-while. I found these two beauties in an amazing little consignment shop, Absolutely Fabulous Consignment, in Kirkland, Washington. I always find gorgeous items in U.S. consignment shops >>

Before & After Joy
Posted at 10:34 am in

We were in stitches laughing when I told her to look “completely depressed and dejected” exactly like every driver’s license and passport photo ever taken of me. She could barely contain herself. I wanted an over-the-top-cheesy-fake-worse-than-real-life mugshot

What Is Glamour Photography?
Posted at 4:44 pm in

My work is all about combining fashion and makeovers. I absolutely love giving women of all ages the rare opportunity to do something for themselves.

My first piece of advice is to wear similar colours so that one outfit doesn’t overpower another. It’s jarring for the eye and rarely works well in portraits. There are a few colours that are a little tricky in photos, even if you’re wearing all the same colour.

We had lots of laughs making the Youtube video. Video’d a hilarious first cut, and then came up with the more professional, potty-mouth-free version that I published. We were in stitches planning our next videos! Stay tuned, we’re almost certain to become famous for making idiots out of ourselves (hey…anything for fame) >>

Oprah’s Glamour Photography
Posted at 4:15 pm in

Hey… look… Oprah’s got her glam on! To celebrate her 15th year publishing O Magazine, she underwent a glamour photo shoot, and the results are gorgeous! It’s interesting that they’re calling this her glamour cover, ’cause I’m pretty sure I’ve seen other more “glamourous” photos on the cover. My point is that although she’s glamourous, she’s not over the top >>
