Beach Shoot with Paper Mothball Vintage


Recently I was able to combine my two great loves- vintage and makeup, when I collaborated with photographer Laura Okita, of the blog Paper Mothball Vintage. Laura is a fellow vintage enthusiast and collector, as well as a former model and super talented photographer. I basically want to be her when I grow up.

We decided on a 50’s beach theme, and Laura styled the entire shoot herself, in addition to photographing it digitally and on film.  We worked with a beautiful model Valen, from Muse models, and Jennifer Covington-Bowers did hair. I was so happy to be able to do makeup on a vintage inspired  shoot, because its the kind of beauty I love the best and it was the combination of my two favorite things. I am SO thrilled with the final images and I hope you enjoy them as well!

I’ll be shooting with Laura again next week so stayed tuned for more beautiful images, next time with an Edwardian theme!
