This was my first time working with photographer Emily Gualdoni, model Ania Olejnik, & Clothing Designer Nadia A. Ivanova. These women are fanatics with their work and were a pleasure to work with. I don’t know about you guys, but when I first meet others before a shoot, it takes awhile for everyone to agree on something. However, this shoot was different. We knew that each one of us were creative enough to just leave everything up in the air ! Everyone can have their own input/style without trying to duplicate something.For this shoot, I did Ania’s hair and makeup. Do you like her lip color? I custom made it myself. Now I just have to come up with a name for it. Suggestions? Oh & remember what I said about possibly making my own makeup line? I have not given up on the idea and is researching away! Thanks for the support guys!
I think I just sidetracked myself.. okay back to the shoot. Nadia had given to us a variety of exotic dresses to choose from, however we decided to let Ania wear the biggest one. I love the patterns & the simplicity of it! Although the dress was twice her size, Ania rocked it ! I highly recommend Ania to everyone who is looking for a model. She is very easy to work with plus she has an amazing heart. Could not ask for a better model. She’s one of my favorite. Enjoy the photos!
We also made it on Super Express Chicago!!
