Our shoot was scheduled for a day when all forecasts predicted rain. But, since hair stylist, Jodi Lynn and makeup artist, Elena from La Sata Salon were booked and ready to make our Paris inspired photo session a reality, we decided to thumb our nose at Mother Nature and go for it!
La Sata Salon's very talented makeup artist, Elena, carefully checks the application after applying blush to the cheekbones.
Applying the classic red lipstick....
Notice the beautiful and timeless chignon, a classic hair design by the extremely creative and talented Jodi Lynn of La Sata Salon.
Our model, Sophia looked lovely in her black and white gown; her hair softly framing her face with beautiful pin curls: the back neatly gathered into a chignon at the nape of her neck. Her makeup featured a strong red lip with a simple soft palette of taupes in a matte finish. Her eyes are defined by mascara and liquid liner slightly turned up at the corner for a classic Parisienne look.
We began our shoot near the Rochester Civic Center and gradually worked our way over to Central Park where we had a lovely vintage style clock and classic Parisienne street lamps as a backdrop. There we took her chignon down; made a loose side pony tail, donned a red beret and peacoat with a classic tartan plaid skirt and simple suede flats. Afterwards, we opted for a few urban shots; Sophia's hair completely down with loose, soft curls courtesy of the pin curls. And, just as the rain began to fall, we finished up in a green space near the Baldwin Building downtown with the Plummer building in the distance.
Next blog post.... we will interview Sophia about her experience a find out what surprised her about the experience and which is her favorite image.
