Here are some of our favorite images from the Anniversary photo session we did at the end of August. Take a peek inside the beautiful new chapel at Hyatt Regency Albuquerque Downtown.

This hauntingly beautiful photo shoot came together based on the inspiration of a beautiful lace overlay dress & the imagination of Kristina at Blue Rose Photography. Thanks to the help of Albuquerque Florist, an elegant model- Heyjoo, & C. Johnson Makeup, these photos are some of my favorite in my current body of work.
We are currently working on having these images published, otherwise I’d love to share more, but this is all for now.
Recently, we had a hair/makeup session with Mikaela. Here are some photos of our process & the final result.
We started by curling her hair & pinning it up to cool. We used a 1.5 inch curling wand & a light hold hairspray. Pinning it up to cool helps the hair hold the curl for as long as possible – it also gets the hair off of her face so that we can move on to makeup. Scroll down for a complete list of products used.
For Mikaela’s foundation we used Lorac #’s 3, 4, & 5 to provide a flawless coverage & to highlight & contour her face simultaneously. We used MAC’s Pro Longwear concealer to hide any imperfections. We set the foundation with a translucent-light setting powder. Mac matte bronze to set the contour under her cheekbones, Alexis Vogel radiant blush in the shade “Tipsy”, & Becca Highlighter in the shade “Moonstone”.
For Mikaela’s lip color, we used Alexis Vogel’s lip stain in the color “Barely” & a clear gloss.
The eyeshadow colors we choose came from Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. MAC’s Fluidline in BlackTrack. Ardell’s 110 lashes & Covergirl Lashblast mascara. To help frame her eyes, we used Anastasia Beverly Hill’s DipBrow eyebrow pomade in the shade “Taupe” to lightly fill in & shape her eyebrows.
